"Semi-Charmed Life" is a song by Third Eye Blind which is about a drug user's descent into crystal meth addiction. The line "I want something else..." contains a reference to crystal meth in the song. (thanks, Anthony - Arab, AL)

The line: "Doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break" was a little racy for some radio stations, who played an edited version with the words "Crystal Meth" distorted.This was Third Eye Blind's first single. The group's name could be a reference to a penis, but The Third Eye is also a metaphysical term in new age spirituality referring a state of enlightenment and is associated with clairvoyance. (thanks, Jules - w Bloomfield, MI)

The original line was "I want nothing else..." but when the song was eventually released, it was changed to "I want something else." No explanation has ever been given for this, however recordings of the original can be found. (thanks, Andy - Chattanooga, TN)

This was played in the Norm MacDonald movie Dirty Work as Norm's character, Mitch, returns home after being fired to find his girlfriend is also kicking him out. (thanks, DC - Kansas City, MO)
