Nirvana – Heart Shaped Box

Yes, why not? I’m back, with a review of Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box. The song was published in 1993 on the album In Utero. Here are the lyrics, and below is the crazy music video. Enjoy!

This is kind of a love-hate song. You either hate it, or you love it. I’m with the last crew. This is the typical Nirvana kind of song, with Kurt’s well-known voice and the stripped-down grunge sound. You can hear every sound they make, nothing gets lost, and I think that’s great. It would be a shame if I didn’t mention the awesome sound, the guitars, the drums, the bass, and, of course, Kurt’s great voice. And the short, but cool solo. Yes, I said great. The lyrics are brilliantly deep and out of the ordinary, just like this band is. The music video is strange and original, just like the song itself, with, among other things, an almost completely naked, old man on a wooden cross in a field of fake flowers, a fat, “skinless” lady with wings, and glimpses of Kurt Cobain’s beautiful blue eyes between the otherwise blurry clips of him, and the band rocking out in front of the cross. There is so much to this song that makes it unique and special.  It’s bizarre and awesome at the same time. Just love it.

I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice”

Hello there! Today’s song is Sally’s Song sung by Amy Lee from the cover album of The Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack (1993) called Nightmare Revisited, which was published in 2008. The song is originally from the film The Nightmare Before Christmas written by Tim Burton in 1993. Here are the lyrics. Enjoy.

I just adore Amy Lee’s voice. The song itself is a sweet piano ballad, and I love the melody. The lyrics are great and sort of sad, but I really like them a lot. This is just beautiful.
