Hole – Violet (album: Live Through This 1995)

This next song is by Hole. The band was founded by Courtney Love. They had a few good songs. Of course I had to post them on my website because they were part of the Grunge movement which I love very much and also Courtney Love was Kurt Cobain’s wife so she deserves some respect! Love wrote this song about Billy Corgan Smashing Pumpkins Frontman , apparently she was dating him before she met Cobain.

And now I’ll tell you about how I’ve learned that’s it’s not good to eat food that was dropped on the floor…when I was 5 years old , I’ve developed this habit of escaping out of Kindergarten. Not that I didn’t enjoy getting messy all day and eating sand with the rest of kids , of course I did but I’ve always looked for new challenges and one of them was opening the gates and getting the hell out of there without anyone noticing. Of course I had to convince my friend to come with me because it’s even more challenging to influence someone else. I was very creative back then…anyway, once my friend and I managed to escape we would usually think of ways to get some treats. We had a couple of elderly neighbors who used to feed us ice-cream and other sweets. So usually we spent a lot of time in their house. They never said asked questions about Kindy and they were always happy to see us. One day the old people were out of the house so we just hanged around outside of our building. And there on the floor we found 8 pieces of chocolate, it had a strange color of white and brown , the white parts indicated that it’s was off but we didn’t know that back then ,  and we just wanted to get our hands on that chocolate. Each of us ate 4 pieces. It had a horrible taste but we ate it anyway. Later on that day both my friend and I had a sore stomach and we were very sick. And from that day onwards, I never eat anything that was dropped on the floor, so if you don’t experience – you never learn anything! Check out this cool anger song… 

Lyrics: Violet Lyrics

What’s this song about?

Violet" is reputedly about The Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, with Love whom had had a relationship prior to her relationship with Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. On May 5, 1995, Love introduced the song on Later... with Jools Holland as "a song [that]'s about a jerk, I hexed him and now he's losing his hair",which is seen as a reference to Corgan's hair loss. However, there is some evidence that the song alludes to Love's days as a stripper. She has on occasion made reference to the "violet lights" in a strip club which she used to work in.  (wikipedia – Violet)
