Starting around 0:44 you'll find out why I like to call this Melodic Pig Metal Big Grin

RE: The Headbangers thread
Hey guys, quick question.
I'm sitting here playing some old scorpions on my trusty gee-tar, and one song that I really dig, especially late at night while winding down from a party, is China White. Cool vibe, easy licks, just a fun little simple song with a darkness I like.

Does anyone know why it's called China White? That's the street name for pure heroin...but there's nothing in the song that ties to that. Just curious...I looked around but could find nothing about it, wondered if anybody had some insider info. Cool

Party on, dudes!

Hmm, not sure what you mean...? The song by the scorps is what I'm talking about, but if you know the song, the lyrics don't seem to have anything at all to do with china white in any form...based on the year Blackout was released- 1982- it predates most things in your list, and because it's early 80's Scorpions, I would lean heavily towards the "pure heroin" definition...yet while the song's music is pretty dark and heavy, the lyrics are actually pretty positive, and have nothing to do with drugs, unless I'm missing something obvious. (I never rule that out Smile ) So why is the song called China White? A couple lines could maybe be called hints at drug use but they are a stretch, and China White is pretty specific. Dunno...just always wondered. Fun to play, anyhow!

Sometimes it seems the good times
Never will return
A lot has changed, babe
'Cause evil rules the world

You said you're looking for a place
Where there's no hate
Oh, babe, it really makes no sense
To escape

How long will it take
To make the world a flaming star
How long will it take
Till they stop their senseless wars
How long will it take
Till everybody will understand
That we need to fill our hearts with love again

The only future we've got
Exists right now
Let's take the time, babe
As long as the world is turning 'round

How long will it take
To make the earth a fireball
How long will it take
Till no more life exists at all
How long will it take
Till everybody will understand
That we need to fill our hearts with love again

It's up to you
To fight the evil in your mind
It's up to you
The more love you give, the more you'll find
The more love you give, the more you'll find

Don't make the world a flaming star
Stop, stop all these senseless wars
How long will it take
Till everybody will understand
That we need to fill our hearts with love again

China White was killing a shitbucket of junkies in SoCal in the early 80s who weren't used to the purity of the junk they were shooting. Reading the lyrics, perhaps it's a song to a junkie?
