Cobain or Nirvana ? | Reviewer: Zincthi | 1/26/10
The previous coomment by "Stretch Puppy" is factually incorrect, i.e. Do Re Mi is a Kurt song - as opposed to a Nirvana one. The fact is another member of Nirvana - Pat Smear, also plays guitar on this song. Therefore, to all intents and purposes, it is a de facto Nirvana song. Pat Smear still receives royalties for his contribution to this classic.
Finally, I would speculate; had Kurt Cobain lived, this song would have likely been included on any post In Utero albums.
Sounds like KURT! | Reviewer: stretchpuppy | 12/29/09
"Do Re Mi" is not a DEMO and not NIRVANA, it's purely Kurt who happened to hit record on a single channel into a mic... his last basement recording ever released. Pure talent which almost every band/singer seems to lack these days.
I was 14 when it happened 16 years ago, and I could still cry for him... and if you think that's funny I'll cry for you, too, because you missed out.
No more Kurt? *crawls back into electronica*
I'm full of tears, this song is AMAZING....Kurt's real Artist.... | Reviewer: Angie | 12/31/09
Guys, please, stop comparing Kurt Cobain and John Lennon. Kurt was unique, and John Lennon too.
In my opinion, this songs represents the main feelings of Kurt: He was in pain, trying to make the decision of living or commiting suicide. His voice is very nice, but he tries to hide all his pain inside it(his voice). It really was a tough decision. And his lyrics reflect how despised he was because of TV. They illustrated him in a way he didn't like at all. He hated being a "rockstar" and his success was killing him, it didn't represent him or express him. He was fighting with himself really hard. He didn't want the depression to let him down and he tried hard to fight it. He didn't make it, because of his emotions. He was confused, because, expressing them wouldn't save him, in any way he tried. He was too sensitive, we was feeling weak. Not to say he had some kind of problem with his stomach, that led him to this depression, so he self-medicated with drugs, heroin, because he was so desperate. And because he was using drugs, it was difficult for him to get away from this decision of killing himself. So, extremely weak, he tried to change his mind with this song, let the music take him and listen to the lyrics so that he changes his mind, but he knew it wouldn't get right, he knew how he would wind up, and surely, he was pretty upset with that, but he tried to hide it with his calm spirit and calm himself. It wound up to be a song which would encourage him to commit suicide. He didn't have the passion to live this difficult and sh*tty life he lived. He had a daughter too, who he loved more that his life. Everywhere, anywhere, he took his daughter with him. He didn't only wanted to ease his pain, but to help his daughter live better. Without him.
I don't want to be arrogant but i strongly believe it would be better if he stayed there, with his daughter, and his guitar, that he really ROCKS along with it, and a piece of paper along with her and compose lyrics, and I do believe that he was a natural at it (although he thought it was a secondary thing), playing music and record, teaching her and us importand lessons of life with his wide experience. He had so much to give... It's a pitty he is not here with us.
But there was no other way.
R.I.P., Kurt. Hope they understand you up there more than we do, and also hope you are playing music and sing along with them, with your calmness, in peace, and nothing is making you sad...
I know this is a bit big, so erase it anytime you want.=]I said what I felt and I don't care.
Speechless too. | Reviewer: Few Times | 11/21/09
Woah... this song really needs that you read it and read it again for can understand it, but once that you've understand... you stay like... woah.
I still believing that cobain is the best lyricist. I don't mind that sometimes the lyrics make no sense. But i love them.
Every sentence has it own sense and matter.
And Cobain was right, the lyrics doesn't mind that much. The important thing is the music. The lyrics can be good, but if the sound is crap, well... But if the music is so good that you don't need nothing but it, well... you are a Kurt.
Even the covers that he made, are thousand times better than the original ones, and with the same lyrics, the sound is better.
Long life to Kurt.
RIP, dude. Rest in peace.
im speechless. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/18/09
i've heard good things about this song, so i finally listened to it, and i'm actually in tears. he was such an amazing song writer. and not just the lyrics, the melody of this song just reduces me to tears. rip kurt.
i still miss him | Reviewer: myself | 10/27/09
when i first heard this song i couldn't really understand all of the lyrics, but i noticed that he vulnerably switchted between do re mi and don't rape me. i think the careful listener did notice it and that it was meant that way; to be only for the real listener. I still miss him.
Kurt's Last Song. | Reviewer: Zincthi | 7/29/09
When I first heard this song in late 2004, I was once again overwhelmed with deep admiration for the song-writing skills of Kurt Cobain. The melody has a poignant quality and beauty, which I found reminiscent of John Lennon.
In fact, I was so taken by the song, I recorded a version of it in early 2005. I remember thinking, "let's give this boom box classic the studio treatment" I also remember trying in vain to decipher the lyrics on the original version and searching the web - all to no avail.
In the end, we just used as many of Cobain's lyrics as were decipherable, and just basically improvised the chorus and bridge. Anyway, as Cobain once said: " music is primary, lyrics are just secondary".
Suicide letter almost | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/24/09
I dont know when was this song written, but for the lyrics i think its when kurt was thinking to kill himself. It seems he still wanted to be saved, but couldnt help himself... im not really a nirvana fan but this song is amazing
kurt | Reviewer: eric | 3/12/09
this shows what a great lyricist he was. i really miss kurt. i would have loved to hear the music he would made if he had'nt died. music really lost a true talented person and a great performer. i love all of nirvana's music, i have been a fan every since nevermind came out. it seems like yesterday watching smells like teen spirit for the first time on mtv. the early 90s was a good time for good music.
such a grear songwritter | Reviewer: muzzleme | 2/14/09
It's funny to see how the lyrics here are changed as time goes by, since there isn't an official text... the chorus being such a game between do re mi and don't rape me, it seems fitting in its way
I wonder who he'd finilize the lyrics
Do Re Mi | Reviewer: Chris | 1/6/09
I have always been a Nirvana fan. I think Kurt Cobain lived an amazing life if you ever look into it. I just heard this song for the first time on the "Sliver: Best of the Box" album and I love it. It so different than most of Nirvana's other songs, but in a good way. I can't stop listening to it. It puts me in a place where I just feel so taken up by the music. It is such a relaxing song and it shows a more relaxed version of Nirvana. Too bad it was never recorded on an official album before his death. I believe this would have been a huge hit. R.I.P. Kurt Cobain and the great music he has created.
amazing song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/4/08
i just heard the song for the first time today and i think its the best song Nirvana ever did. The song just captures you and brings back old memories of childhood and growing up for me. Kurts voice sounds sensitive which i thought was great cause usually all of their songs were screamed it really brings out his voice that he could actually sing very well. its a great song to lay down and close your eyes too. Amazing that only Kurt could do.
My favorite sad things | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/20/08
This song reminds me of like having to wake up in late fall and go do stuff. Especially getting out of the shower and standing around all cold and exposed at 6 am. Also, roaming around a brownfeild completely alone, rediscovering an abandoned factory and not only the greed infested history there, but the dripping chemicals, the broken glass, the faded teenage vandalism. Trainyards. Dead-end towns. Industrial photographic material. All my favorite sad stuff. Brilliant. I'd also like to remark at the apparent intelligence of everyone else who wrote here. No stupid, preppy "lol" crap. You guys clearly exhibit a certain amount of passion.
i love nirvana, beautiful song | Reviewer: Kurt's #1 fan | 4/9/08
Kurt Cobain is my idol
all of his song are incredible and so beautiful
he had an amzing talent and this song always make me cry, it reminds me of bad memories and also reminds me of kurts death
kurt will never be forgotten in my heart and in music in general
im glad Dave Grohl still carries alittle bit of Kurt in him in some of his songs
R.I.P. Kurt Cobain
be yourself... | Reviewer: marshall banana | 3/1/08
this touching song show us how we can find the very truth of the spirit and liberate ourselves from the vanity, reaching in self-expression the answers for interior pain in a pat of hopes and dreams
