68. "Do Re Mi"
The last known composition by Kurt Cobain – also known as "Dough, Ray and Me" – was first mentioned in a 1994 Rolling Stone interview with Courtney Love, although it didn’t surface for another decade. Love's commentary on the song is cryptic, but it may explain the line that sounds like "if I may, cold as ice": "I had asked him after Rome" – where Cobain overdosed and fell into a coma a month before his suicide – "to freeze his sperm. So there's this whole thing about freezing your uterus." The song has only been heard as Kurt's acoustic home recording as "Do Re Mi," its title borrowed from the Sound of Music song about the musical scale (note that Kurt plays a descending scale after the chorus).
