ride that black horse, baby


after reading this post (and subsequently leaving an overly large comment!) i felt compelled to post a courtney tune here too. i toyed with many great tracks both solo and with hole (sunset strip being one of the greatest contenders – a fantastic hooky pop rock classic really worth a listen) but decided not to settle for the ‘easy’ option. so here is ‘life despite god’ from ‘america’s sweetheart’ – a raw, uncompromising, bluesey bloodlet of a song that i think is possibly her most acomplished work to date. janis + dylan + hole = life despite god. pour a drink, turn the lights down and give it a whirl…

  1. Gold Dust Woman is so perfect for her. This is probably one of the most fitting cover songs ever. But my personal favorite is still Celebrity Skin.

  2. i just love the whole fucking lot. gold dust woman is a great cover. she’s done have a few crackers – have you heard hole do ‘season of the witch’ or …. ! ….. ‘hungry like a wolf’ ??

    celebrity skin is awsome. courtney has written many great lyrics but i do particularly love:

    “I’m all I want to be

    A walking study

    In demonology ”

    from celebrity skin. have you seen the video? it’s fab too.

    i think i’m going to have to go and have a bit of an internet courtney-fest now….

  3. I have not seen the video. Over maybe the past ten years, I’ve seen maybe half a dozen videos. I’ve no MTV or VH1 or any of that good stuff.

  4. So I was listening to some music on my PDA today. I had the playlist on random. Track 1: Hole – Celebrity Skin. Track 2: Fleetwood Mac – Gold Dust Woman.

    Strange coincidence.
