High on Adderall by Leah Van King

This week’s song of the week was recommended by MIA Reader Bruce Levine: “I came across the Leah Van King’s haunting ‘High On Adderall’ when I was researching an article called ‘Hopeless But Not Broken: From George Carlin to Adderall Protest Music,’ Leah has a beautiful soulful voice, and this song has some powerful lyrics, including: ‘I’m not angry enough to change the world, change the world, change the world. ‘Cause I’m high on Adderall.’”
