"Beautiful Son" as written by Courtney M Love, Patricia Theresa Schemel and Eric T. Erlandson....
You look good in my dress
I'll get your friends to clean the mess
You look good in my clothes
I can feel you where the doctor goes

My beautiful son
Yeah, I know

He had ribbons in his hair
And lipstick was everywhere
You look good in my dress
You look good in my dress

My beautiful son
Yeah, I know

You're barren like me
You're barren

My beautiful son

    General CommentYes, this song is about Kurt dressing in Courtney's clothes. This song, above all others I think, really reflects the love she felt for Kurt and what they shared together.

    General CommentWhat? Smells Like Teen Spirit uses F5, Bb5, G#5, and C#5 and Beautiful Son uses B5, C5, and A5. Unless you were referring to the song I'll Do Anything from America's Sweetheart.

    General Comment'my beautiful son' - when you love someone so much they become a part of you and you feel like they're you're own flesh and blood. That sounds weird, but I think that's a deep level of pure love and courtney felt that for kurt. Just watch the video for 'doll parts' where the boy in the video resembles kurt as a child. She really loved him.

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song and the way she sings of Kurt like he's her own son is adorable <3 Or is she putting herself in his mother's position? The single's cover art is uber-cute.

    General CommentI love this song!
    I also love the fact that Courtney wrote this about Kurt and how he liked dressing up from time to time. The guy had nerve.
