10/14/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Don't Speak
“I don't speak negatively and I don't listen to those who do.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I'm a big ol' No Doubt fan, doncha know.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR3Vdo5etCQ&ob=av3e - Don't Speak - No Doubt, 2003
|"Don't Speak" is a song by the American
Doubt. It was released in 1996 as the third
single from the band's third studio album,
Tragic Kingdom (1995). The song is presumed to be about the
breakup of vocalist
Gwen Stefani's seven-year relationship with bassist
Despite the song's popularity, "Don't Speak" did not chart on the Billboard Hot 100 (as rules of the times required commercial singles for charting and one was not issued for the song), but it did reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay for sixteen weeks. The single also reached number one in Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, being No Doubt's most successful international single. "Don't Speak" was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 1998 Grammy Awards.
The song was ranked at number 495 on Blender magazine's "The 500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born". The song is a playable track in the 2009 music video game Band Hero, and is also included as a downloadable song in 2008's Rock Band 2.
The song was written by Eric Stefani and Gwen Stefani and produced by Matthew Wilder. "Don't Speak" went through several rewrites. A live version that exists from April 1994 shows off a bouncy tune that has the same skeleton as the released version, but not the same urgency. A demo version also appeared on a demo CD, which was presented to Interscope Records prior to the release of the Tragic Kingdom album. Part of the song was performed on VH1 Storytellers on August 10, 2000. The song was written via multiple rewrites about the ending of the relationship between bassist Kanal and lead vocal Gwen Stefani...

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always really feel
I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end
It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real,
Well I don't want to know
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry
It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...
You and me
I can see us dying ... are we?
