My two favorite alternative rock bands were NO DOUBT and BUSH.
Among the competition between female band vocalists on the late 90's, Gwen Stefani stood among the rest. Her SEXY yet TOUGH ATTITUDE, which somehow captures a part of my personality, makes her different from the stereotyped female artists. As for me, she’s one of the fantastic performers on stage and Tragic Kingdom was the best album they ever had!
Bush on the other hand, had the most gorgeous vocalist of all time-Gavin Rossdale! Aside from Gavin’s pretty face, awesome body and husky voice, I was so much fascinated with the beat, and their lyrics-OBSCURE yet PROFOUND. Songs like: Glycerine, Machine Head, Cold Contagious, and Chemicals Between Us were some of their tremendous hits. I even watched them performed live here in Ultra with two of my high school friends (Diane Marie and April Sundae).
Funny though that both bands were able to come up with a song of the same title “X-Girlfriend”, only the concept came from two different perspectives. Also, No Doubt made it a hit while Bush had it as a filler song from their album Sixteen Stone. It may sound serendipitous or was it a matter of design? Either way, the two vocalists found a way to connect with each other and eventually made a good family together.
So, for all the Ex-girlfriends out there, have faith! In our pursuit for love and affection, we surely had been an X-girlfriend once, maybe twice or more but no matter how great nor disastrous our past relationships turned to be, our X-boyfriends will surely remember us as their crazy yet though and gorgeous X kind of girl!!!
For all the Ex-girlfriends out there! These are for you!!!
