Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
You're probably as surprised as I am over my December 1, 2015, Battle of the Bands, with Joan Jett and the surviving members of Nirvana v. Patti Smith.
Here's the vote count (including mine):
Joan Jett 15
If the version for which you voted didn't win, perhaps you can find some happiness in the tie, which means that both renditions won. I know I'm happy.
I realize some of you find no meaning in the lyrics. Using the analytical skills I learned as an English major, I found that I was able to interpret at least part of the song. Perhaps we'll discuss that another day.
For now, Nirvana--including Kurt Cobain--please sing us out.
Infinities of love,
