7. Eminem, “Medicine Ball” (2009)
A medicine ball is a large, heavy ball often used in physical rehab after an injury. The song “Medicine Ball” is one of the more over-the top and offensive songs from Em’s 2009’s record Relapse. Apparently the only medicine he was taking during the recording of the album was copious amounts of prescription sleeping pills for which he later went to rehab leading him to later rap “In fact, let’s be honest/ That last Relapse CD was ‘ehh’”
8. The White Stripes, “Ball And Biscuit” (2003)
This 7-minute plus blues jam is a fan favorite and The White Stripes longest song. When Jack White sings “Let’s have a ball and a biscuit sugar / And take our sweet little time about it” he’s not talking about something that bounces nor is he talking about a dance though in a way I guess he’s singing about both.
