can't say for sure, since i've never taken an acid hit, but when i hear it that is what i imagine being on acid would be like, clock moving slow, focusing on colors etc.

The flower Marigolds. Dave is an avid gardener so he wrote a song about his favorite flower to plant.

i some how ended up on the mailing list for american spirit cigarette's even though i don't smoke and am in the process of getting listed for lung transplant. in the mail a couple days ago was a promo mailing from them that included a packet of sunflower seeds to plant and a packet of...marigold seeds. random. can't wait to get out of the hospital so i can plant them in the garden with my daughter. wonder if i should have some music playing as we do it

ALL of Dave's songs are about Kurt Cobain.
Marigold is one of them.

No, it was written well before Franz joined the Foos. And yes, I know they were together in Scream.

I have nothing to add except that we had a flower bed full of marigolds every summer when I was growing up. They didnt smell good, I was much fonder of the poppies in the back. They were hearty little fuckers though, we tromped all through that flower bed and rarely could you tell.

OK, you guys are blatantly taking the piss now!

Still, I adore the version of this on Skin & Bones. Lovely tune.
