Song a Day November: All Apologies

Don't you just love it when a song gets into your head?

I've always loved Nirvana. They remind me of my time in London, getting drunk in pubs with my drama mates and a much simpler life. Then Kurt Cobain went and stuck a shot gun under his chin and pulled the trigger.

All Apologies is great which ever way it's done - I love acoustic versions more than anything.

But those last lines - they really get stuck in your head. A classic ear worm, I've had the words - "All in all is all we are" going around my head for the last 24 hours.

Oh, and I've sorted out the mondegreen in the coda too - I always thought it was, "Mary, Bear me", not "Married, Buried"...

You don't get much better than Nirvana. And to think, without the Pixies, they would never be here.

Hi Pand,

Yes - great song. Nirvana were fine but they spawned the Foos who are in my opinion much better.
