Kurt Cobain's Saddest Song...

Kurt Cobain was a once-in-a-lifetime talent. He spoke to you through his lyrics; he made you feel his pain, see through his eyes and into his head. Even with the fame, money, and love, it's seemed that Kurt was destined to burn out. "If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I'm not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got"- Kurt Cobain

Kurt has written some very powerful/sad songs, but there is one that stands out head and shoulders above the rest and is perhaps his saddest and most powerful of all.

The song is "You Know You're Right"

The first time I ever heard this song, it truly brought tears to my eyes because of how deep the song and music video are. The lyrics in "You Know You're Right" say exactly what Kurt feels and what is going on in his head. You can really hear/feel all the aggression, anger, pain, sadness, torture, and depression in his voice. If you connect the dots and see that the lyrics and music video are referring to his life, it makes the song very emotional. Not to mention that at some point in our lives we or someone we knew were in the deep, dark, black hole of depression and probably contemplated leaving this world. Most overcome it, but there are those who do not and see only one way out! So, everyone can connect to this song, relate to it, understand it, feel it, and recall when you felt as Kurt did. This makes "You Know You're Right" probably one of the most powerful Sadist songs in the history of any form of music.

There's only one way for you to understand this and that's by:

1. Reading the lyrics
2. Listening to the song
3. Watching the music video

"You Know You're Right"

I would never bother you
I would never promise to
I would never follow you
I would never bother you

Never speak a word again
I will crawl away for good
I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear

No thought was put into this
Always knew it would come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never felt this well

(alt:
I have never felt so frail/
I have never failed to feel/
I have never felt to feel/
I have never failed to fail)

Pain! [x3]
You know you're right [x3]


I'm so warm and calm inside
I no longer have to hide
Let's talk about someone else
Sterling silver begins to melt

(alt:
Steaming soup against her mouth/
Steaming soup begins to melt)
Nothing really bothers her
She just wants to love herself

I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
Always knew it would come to this

Things have never been so swell

I have never felt this well

(alt:
I have never felt so frail/
I have never failed to feel/
I have never felt to feel/
I have never failed to fail)
Pain! [x5]
You know you're right [x17]
Pain ...

 

"If my eyes could show my smile, everyone will cry as they see me smile"- Kurt Cobain: Who knew it would be his last song (released)? I guess he knew it was coming to an end. Pretty eerie 

Here is the album with the previously unreleased song "You Know you're right" on it. Nirvana

If you have a song/ artist that's impacted you or really made a connection, please feel free to share, I would love to hear it.

Thank you Eazy, for this excellent portrayal of Kurt Cobain. Esp after Robin Williams passing. I felt the same when I first heard You Know You're Right.

The song also says to me there is a way we all need to be, watching for what gets in the way, how we can help each other. We're just passing thru. But there's too much that's making it impassable for a lot of us.

Kurt and Robin were definitely "no enemy." They were out of this world but so down to earth. Just wish they didn't have to leave. They took it as far as they could.

It is hard. We don't know if they, or anyone who leaves, are free. I pray they are. They gave us gifts of life we need to pass on to each other.

Wow! you are so right,they were both out of this world and I'm sure if people seen it coming they would of intervened or it might of been already past "the point of no return"; sadly it's too late for Kurt and Robin. But, not for those who are still alive & contemplating suicide, we can really learn from these deaths & hope those in need.

sometimes I wonder what's going through the heads of the rich & famous that commit suicide; I mean they have the life that so many will die for and really no worries, but for reasons only known to those who taken their live's, something very evident and immensely present is missing.

I guess fame and money cannot give you complete happiness. Sometimes, physiological scars never heal, depression is never to far away and life in general is way to much. Very sad....

Thank for you comment stan
