Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song...

Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song... Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song... Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song... Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song...

Kurt Cobain was a once-in-a-lifetime talent. He spoke to you through his lyrics; he made you feel his pain, see through his eyes and into his head. Even with the fame, money, and love, it's seemed that Kurt was destined to burn out. "If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I'm not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got"- Kurt Cobain

Kurt has written some very powerful/sad songs, but there is one that stands out head and shoulders above the rest and is perhaps his saddest and most powerful of all.

The song is "You Know You're Right"

The first time I ever heard this song, it truly brought tears to my eyes because of how deep the song and music video are. The lyrics in "You Know You're Right" say exactly what Kurt feels and what is going on in his head. You can really hear/feel all the aggression, anger, pain, sadness, torture, and depression in his voice. If you connect the dots and see that the lyrics and music video are referring to his life, it makes the song very emotional. Not to mention that at some point in our lives we or someone we knew were in the deep, dark, black hole of depression and probably contemplated leaving this world. Most overcome it, but there are those who do not and see only one way out! So, everyone can connect to this song, relate to it, understand it, feel it, and recall when you felt as Kurt did. This makes "You Know You're Right" probably one of the most powerful Sadist songs in the history of any form of music.

There's only one way for you to understand this and that's by:

1. Reading the lyrics
2. Listening to the song
3. Watching the music video

"You Know You're Right"

I would never bother you
I would never promise to
I would never follow you
I would never bother you

Never speak a word again
I will crawl away for good
I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear

No thought was put into this
Always knew it would come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never felt this well

(alt:
I have never felt so frail/
I have never failed to feel/
I have never felt to feel/
I have never failed to fail)

Pain! [x3]
You know you're right [x3]


I'm so warm and calm inside
I no longer have to hide
Let's talk about someone else
Sterling silver begins to melt

(alt:
Steaming soup against her mouth/
Steaming soup begins to melt)
Nothing really bothers her
She just wants to love herself

I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
Always knew it would come to this

Things have never been so swell

I have never felt this well

(alt:
I have never felt so frail/
I have never failed to feel/
I have never felt to feel/
I have never failed to fail)
Pain! [x5]
You know you're right [x17]
Pain ...

 

"If my eyes could show my smile, everyone will cry as they see me smile"- Kurt Cobain: Who knew it would be his last song (released)? I guess he knew it was coming to an end. Pretty eerie 

Here is the album with the previously unreleased song "You Know you're right" on it. Nirvana

If you have a song/ artist that's impacted you or really made a connection, please feel free to share, I would love to hear it.

I would love to hear a response Mrs Cobain and would greatly appreciate your effort to writing a little bit on life on lifes terms. And in the end not wanting to deal.. And Ty again best wishes,
Michael

As requested from the comments, I was able to request a little more info on Rose. She requested I upload a video and let you see it for yourself....It's entitled "The Girl Behind Nirvana".

Why are you pointing your readers to the nonsensical ramblings of this obviously delusional and very sad person whom is obsessed with a celebrity who died over 20 years ago? I mean, what's the point? The quality is poor and adds absolutely no insight into Cobain's life. It seems to me you're posting this link purely for click bait. I find it very sad, manipulative and opportunistic that you give credence to this person, using them as as a legitimate source of information about your subject matter when she obviously needs professional help, or at the very least, needs to move on with her life. Maybe your next post could be about the cult of personality or the obsessive and irrational nature of the fanatic worship of celebrity pop culture without using emotionally damaged individuals as props to support your insights.

Wow Elliott Andrews! I'm really not sure why you would post a comment just to demean someone. You live your life and let them live their's! Why does it bother you so much? This is the real question.

Also, not sure what you mean by "Click bait".

My response to this comment:
" I find it very sad, manipulative and opportunistic that you give credence to this person, using them as as a legitimate source of information about your subject matter when she obviously needs professional help, or at the very least, needs to move on with her life."
----- So hateful and angry, please take a chill pill------All I did was upload a link and she told her story, people are free to just avoide it all together. Also, I allow readers to comment what they want, I have no problem with it... It's up to YOU (Reader) to process it and take it how you want. Some are curious, mad, etc... Or according to you Elliott Andrews, very "manipulative" as you accused me of.

Anyways, I love the passion and your view, always insight full and love the honesty. Please keep them coming on my past and future writings. I can really tell you're maybe a strong supporter of Kurt.

As for my next blog stay tuned....... John Lennon and jesus christ superstar are the next subject matter for music ;), thanks for the recommendations though.

Michael Sandelier very interesting, I think we would all like to know... Stay tune and I'll email her and get her thoughts. In the mean time, please check out the link I uploaded and reading up a little bit more on Rose. It should be in the comment section

Wow¡!!! To Mrs Rose Phoenix Cobain, After the 21 yrs of the most identifying ,charismatic,and truly authentic human being/artists that ever lived! I grew up without a father and a stressed out mother who was trying to better our lives in graduating nursing school, but was always so serious and extreme with everything. I let a lot of my anger out different than Kurt , with athletics and was one of the greatest Highschool wrestlers in New Jersey. I was a thrill child always going to new heights in whatever my passion was always going further than the norm, that said, I had a lot of pressure and commitments to achieve, and so much pressure to make the right choice in what colllege I would enroll. I became so manic scared feared the unknown and afraid to make a choice, I came to a major depression I didn't know what was to come. so I could not bring myself to make the choice of what and where I would persue my colllege wrestling,as my depression fears and dealing with reality became so strong. I gave up inside my mind my will and freedom of choice to become a herion addict, its all that I knew that could keep me from the disgust that I created. And it took all my pain and stuffed it into the nothing I've become, I went from complete Royal treatment to a what a shame story. This stems from my childhood and when I didn't have wrestling No more I found a new love, but she twisied my mind even more as I progressed from 1995 till I became clean since 2001 two days after 9/11 ,I never looked back and picked up herion again, long story shortend we all have some of Kurt in us, but we must wake each day clean and be grateful we are still on this earth give our will to god and let go of the past and what I really got out of this was how to use failure as a learning experience, we have to grow or we will be caught in the grasp of our mind that could take our will back at anytime. My point is it doesn't matter who you are. This disease does not discriminate nor does it care who what and where you are. The difference today is I have a choice and I choose to be the best I could be. Shannon Hood was another talented individual taken to early who had a beautiful and goosebumping voice. Kurt was extremely talented and also he gave me hope as strange as it sounds, as I listen to his music these days, I look at a whole new perspective.
Ty and May God bless you and your family. Hes an inspiration in my eyes... The greatest mind in music ... Live forever. Michael Sandelier Washington Twp N.J.

Michael Sandelier Washington, extremely humbled with you sharing your story and how you dealt with your struggles. I'm really impressed that you were able to not only face your demons but, realize you had a problem and that you need to change. The first step to any recovery is to say or think "I need help!, I want to quit". It sounds like it was a very tough road and one that took you into oblivion for a portion of your life......

I agree that every person has a little bit of kurt in them, some more then others, its a natural human emotion to get depressed, sad and even want to leave this world. We all had these thoughts and feelings at one point of our lives for whatever reason. You managed to be a survivor and not only that but, a success story...

Thank you for your story.

I think "My Girl" is their saddest song

Why do you think that?

So Rose Pheonix-Cobain is a joke right?
