(I think even the other Nirvana members would never want to participate in this song).

Silly Version: ??? (If you’ve heard the song, I’m sure you won’t even ask.)

Okay. At least for an hour or two, I would take a break from that I-love-it-but-I-never-guessed-that-it-could-kill-me-when-it-comes-in-that-amount-of-abundance work. Besides the needs of keeping this blog a little bit alive, I could really use some laugh. And who knows, maybe some of you need it too to counter that “I hate Mondays” syndrome. So, here we go.

Written by Paul McCartney and was recorded for the Fab Four’s final album, Let It be. The rehearsals and recording sessions for that album starting from January 1969 and at that time probably the relationship among four of them was at one of the lowest points.

“Matters came to a head on 6 January, when Harrison had a heated argument with McCartney during a rehearsal of "Two of Us"…What is not shown in the film is another, allegedly much more severe argument Harrison had with Lennon on 10 January.” (From

I don’t know what kind of recording technique Kurt Cobain used to sound like someone who is either half Alvin or having too much helium. But during his younger days he was quite “an expert” in dealing with tape-recording himself, like making mix-tape copies or demos, so I won’t be too surprised if he actually recorded this one by himself (added with the possibility that Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were reluctant should Kurt ever told them the concept of this song).
