Alex From Nsk from RussiaThis song about Jesus Christ
Nick from Fresh Meadows, Nyyeah those songs dont really mean anything bad. just look at it this way, that album was very different from his others, because those songs, been a son, mollys lips, son of a gun... where very different from his usual grundge sounding music with the guitar whaling and screatching voice, but all those songs came out very good, so that goes to show he was versatile, in fact there are some sogs on some albums where he changes his voice so much you cant even tell its him.
Layton from Paris, TxIn Christopher Sandfords biography of Kurt Cobain it said Kurt Cobain wrote this as a protest to all women in the world and how everyone wants a son instead of a daughter. Kurt was a huge feminist and put it into his songwriting. Rape Me is another protest for women.
Johnny from Pittsburgh, Pathis song is about kurt's sister who is actually a lesbian and wasa bit of a tomboy. and it is true kurt's father never wanted a daughter.
Defri from Samarinda, Indonesiasimple lyrics but it has complicated perception...
Mike from Albany, NyAleah, I think you are probably confusing this tune with "Son of a Gun" - that song, along with "Molly's Lips", are the two Vaselines covers that Nirvana included on the Incesticide compilation. "Been a Son" is credited to Cobain and Novoselic, and the lyrics are Cobain at his best.
Aleah from New Kensington, ScOk, from my knowledge 'Been a Son' was accually written by a Scottish band called The Vasilines, Nirvana just did a cover of it. That does not make it any less of a song, Nirvana was probaly equal too, if not better. That song has so much meaning, I can relate to the scenerio of parents wanting me to be a son. It is a deeper song than most think.
Kaycee from Houston, Txkurt looked like his dad
Kelsey from Evansville, InThis is one of my favorite Nirvana songs. Its catchy and its lyrics are good. To me you have to disect each word of all of Kurts lyrics to find the true meaning behind the song.
Stacey from Dundalk, MdI love this song it describes just how I felt as a young girl. Unwanted.
James from Edwardsville, Ilyeah, it's a good'n
Flo from Toulouse, FranceThat song is one of my Nirvana's favourites. Great rhythm !!!
Liz from The Town That Never Sleeps, NvIt wasnt that it was obscure. i think no one posted because they really didnt get it. You have to be a fan to understand kinda thing.
Jordan from Shokan, Nyi guess this song is a wee bit obscure. nobody posted. check it out people.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
The Boyz II Men hit "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" is an a capella cover of a song from 1975 by G.C. Cameron that was used in the movie Cooley High to express the feeling of parting ways with high school friends.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
