Brewer & Shipley, 'One Toke Over the Line'
When a song has the distinction of being labeled both "subversive" by Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and a "modern spiritual" by conservative talk-show host Lawrence Welk, you know you have a hit. Welk had a point. Folk duo Brewer & Shipley's 1971 tune is pretty much just a groovy Southern gospel, though the only spirit it's chasing is one that comes through a hash pipe. Hunter S. Thompson further cemented it into pop-culture history in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, with Dr. Gonzo humming it as he drove, leaving narrator Raoul Duke to wonder, "One toke? You poor fool!"
