Will she smell alone?

willshesmellaloneThis falls under the category of ridiculous lyrics. Back before Scott Weiland had yet to fall off the wagon for the first time, he fronted a little band called Stone Temple Pilots. And despite their first ever single being about brutal rape (Sex Type Thing), people seemed to like them. This was back when grunge was the bee’s knees, and they caught on. Their second song, Plush, was much more mellow, but had some of the most ridiculous lyrics ever.

The line that always sticks out to me, and that me and my friend Joe at the time would always make fun of, was “when the dogs begin to smell her, will she smell alone?”. I mean, WTF does THAT mean, Scott? What a weirdo.

Seriously, anyone care to analyze this mess of words they call a song?

  1. I never really paid attention to the lyrics. So I looked them up. Then I was confused by them so I went to wikipedia which said that the song was a metaphor for a failed relationship and loosely based off of a newspaper article. I’m still confused.

  2. This song was written after hearing a news story regarding a missing womens body being found… Read the lyrics again and it will all make sense now
