Roxy’s Retro 4/22/21 Nirvana “About A Girl”

TECHNICALLY, TODAY’S RETRO WAS RECORDED AND RELEASED AT THE TAIL-END OF THE 80’S, MARKING THE BEGINNINGS OF THE SEATTLE BASED GRUNGE MOVEMENT; BUT I WASN’T FAMILIAR WITH IT TIL THE EARLY 90’S WHEN IT FOUND ITS WAY ON ONE OF THE LAST MIXED TAPES TO BE GIVEN TO ME…AND I LOVED IT…THEN IN 93, THE KURT COBAIN PENNED SONG, THAT DEFINITELY LEANED POP, OFF NIRVANA’S DEBUT ALBUM ‘BLEACH’ GAINED A WHOLE NEW AUDIENCE WHEN THE BAND PERFORMED IT ON MTV’S UNPLUGGED AND IT WAS MAGICAL…THE SINGLE, “ABOUT A GIRL”, WAS RE-RELEASED AS THE LEAD SINGLE FROM NIRVANA’S MTV UNPLUGGED ALBUM AND HIT THE CHARTS 6 MONTHS AFTER COBAIN’S UNTIMELY DEATH…THE VERY SPECIAL GRUNGEY AND POPPY SINGLE FROM NIRVANA…”ABOUT A GIRL” IT TAKES ME BACK TO A TIME I REMEMBER FONDLY AND NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO! ~ROXY
