Track of the Day: 'Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart'

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

Yesterday I mentioned how the song “Sister Christian” was stuck in my head after rewatching Boogie Nights, so a reader today emailed her own earworm—“Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart,” sung by the recently deceased Scott Weiland, who named his autobiography after one of its main lyrics, Not Dead & Not For Sale. (Watch the song with visual lyrics here.)

Anything good stuck in your head right now?  Have a particularly strong memory attached it? Drop me an email. Our reader today recalls:

I was pregnant at the time, and I was in love with Tiny Music. I was stuck on Nirvana’s In Utero, too. That was a coincidence!
