It's shocking to hear Michael Jackson sing about the powerful prescription drug Demerol. We had hoped to play this for you tonight during the live show, but technical glitches prevented us from doing so.
While the song's not new, it's still worth a listen. No video was ever made for this song. The video in this clip is from other Jackson songs.
"Morphine" was a song off of Michael Jackson's 1997 album Blood on the Dance Floor.
In this song Jackson sings, "Trust in me, trust in me, put all your trust in me, you're doin' Demerol. Oh God, he's taking Demerol."
Listen to this clip at about 2:30 in to the song to hear Jackson's lyrics.
According to reports, Demerol isn't considered to be the drug that killed Jackson, it was the anesthetic propofol.
