"Aneurysm" as written by Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic....
Come on over
Do the twist (aha)
Overdo it
Have a fit (aha)
Come on over
Shoot the shit (aha)
Love you so much
Makes me sick (aha)
Beat me out of me (beat it, beat it)
She keeps it pumpin' strait in my heart.

    General CommentGod whats wrong with you people? This is about Kurt's old girlfriend named Toby Vail from Bikini Kill. She broke up with Kurt, and it emotionlly drained him. He still had feelings for her even after the break-up "Loves you so much it makes me sick"

    And about the comment about Courtney turning Kurt on Heroin.....Get your shit checked out before you post it. Kurt first tried Heroin in 1990 with a friend in Olympia, BEFORE he met Courtney. FUUUCKKK!

    My Opinioni think Kurt managed what he intended to from the start. He is unique in that he was different and new. he felt that originality and creativity had dried up in music and was becoming generally jaded with all he heard. by juxtaposing random commentary haphazardly and sometimes writing straightforward poetic commentaries he managed to confuse and enthuse everyone.
    if only he knew that to this day he would create such controversy. it is said he hated people misinterpreting his lyrics. how can that be true, he wrote in a way to cause the confusion being suffered by all and must be up there looking down finally with a dirty great big smile on his face. just like in his song writing he said things that would put people of the scent of what he really thought. when he said he hated being misinterpreted i think he really loved it.
    internally there was lots going on, creation from conflicts and much more besides. I think he was often excited and happy inside but the external mask was one of disdain and whatever.

    some of his songs are clearly straighforward and yet get over analysed and made into something completely different, others mean nothing in particular and also get over analysed etc etc. thats pretty much what he wanted and if it means something to you then it means something to you. the fact that people can read so much and such a wide variety into all his work is part of what makes it so enduringly vital and keeps it fresh. i have read some peoples interpretations which have clearly been made in relation to a world after that which Kurt was part of and the fact that people can relate his lyrics to society today just shows how much simplicity and genius was combined in the writing of the songs in the beginning.

    its a great shame Kurt is no longer with us but at least his untimely death has ensured that his work did not become diluted by becoming a hugely prolific body of work much of which could have been mediocre in the end. many of the longest working artists produce so much worthless rubbish in their quest to retain their celebrity, creative spark and of course keep the money rolling in.

    I love all the arguments between interpretations and peoples opinions. Its really entertaining to hear some people comment as if they were inside his head and state facts as if others are idiots. None of them know some of what he wrote and why and some of them cant see the wood for the trees, its brilliant. Cheers Kurt :)

    in death Kurt's message got across and his legacy lives on

    General CommentThis song was wrote about Tobi Vail, a girl who Kurt dated for a while. Read 'Heavier than Heaven', it's all in there.
    The 'Love you so much, makes me sick (aha)' lyric refers to him feeling so awful about her breaking up with him that he was physically sick.

    General CommentI always thought that this song was about shootin dope. Come on over and do the twist I figured as tying off too shoot, love you so much it makes me sick, is obvious, and come on over and shoot the shit, which is pretty obvious too. I admit, I never read anything that says what it's about but I'm sure they wouldn't write that it was about shootin heroin. I'm not saying that proves its not about an ex-girlfriend, I'm just saying. Also, I'm sure that a lot of his songs were about nothing.

    Kurt first tried heroin in Olympia in 1990 as someone previously posted on this thread.
    I agree with livv3409. It probably is about tobi vail. Although, many of Kurt songs easily have two meanings.

    General CommentIt's about being with a woman who you love but it's one sided.She is more casual about the relationship while he is in love with her and this frustrates and confuses him.
