Doll Parts (Hole/Courtney Love/Miley Cyrus Cover)

Back to grunge and the 90s. 🖤

I’ve been playing this song nonstop since last night because I couldn’t get Miley Cyrus’s rendition on this classic Hole song (Courtney Love) on The Howard Stern Show out of my head.

It’s a song about beauty — doll parts, doll eyes — and being frustrated in love. Maybe competing for it. Maybe being objectified by it.

“‘It was about a boy, whose band had just left town, who I’d been sleeping with, who I heard was sleeping with 2 other girls,’ [Courtney] Love explained.

‘It was my way of saying, “You’re a f***ing idiot if you don’t choose ME, and here is all the desire and fury and love that I feel for you.” Good songs don’t always come in 20 minutes but the force was strong and that one did. Anyway I married that guy [Kurt Cobain].'”

It’s simple, but memorable.

Hope you enjoy my amateur licks and little add-ons on this. 🤘

With love and honesty,

Rachel
