The song Doll Parts is a homage I wrote in 20 minutes in a girl named Joyce’s bathroom in Cambridge, Massachusetts,” she wrote. I had to write most of the lyrics on my arm in sharpie as I ran out of paper. People were pounding on the door as I wrote it. It was played for the first time about an hour later, at the Virgin megastore in Boston.

It was about a boy, whose band had just left town, who I’d been sleeping with, who I heard was sleeping with two other girls, it was my way of saying, You’re a fucking idiot if you don’t choose me, and here is all the desire and fury and love that I feel for you.’ Good songs don’t always come in 20 minutes but the force was strong and that one did.”

And here’s the story’s all-important payoff: Anyway I married that guy.”
