Well, nothing as fickle in the world as love. Emotions often lead to sparks of creativity and none more so when that love goes wrong. This is Holly Beth Vincent, front lady for Holly and the Italians, and for a while during the early eighties she was the other half of another strat toting musician. And with Mark Knopfler on her side, Holly set off building up her own career, helped in no small part by her boyfriend's connections in the music industry. But once she got there, she dumped Mark and started to tell people that she made it all on her own and that Mark didn't have any involvement whatsoever. Not surprisingly, that angered Mark and he wrote a song about her, a song which became one of Dire Straits' biggest hits. That line "I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real, so how can you look at me as if I were just another one of your deals?" is very specific and painful. Now in the early nineties, there were two celebrity couples which everybody talked about. Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were the first but here's the second couple: Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) and Justine Frischman (Elastica) The two of them had a very long husband and wife relationship, even though they never married. But in the late nineties Justine, fed up with Damon's drug fueled behavior, decided that she had had enough and dumped him. Damon responded with a complete album about their break up, Blur's "13" where only "Coffee and TV" (Which is sung by Graham Coxon and is about his desire to quit alcohol) wasn't about her. The most personal song was "No distance left to run" where Damon basically tells her "You were right, I accept the consequences, I'm out of your life." But I'm going for the one where Damon sings about how he will always cherish what he and Justine had, which again became a massive hit. "Tender" Now Sinead O'Connor, isn't the easiest of people to hang around with as the world has since found out multiple times over. But one guy who gave it a shot was Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis, who had a short fling with her. In his book "Scar tissue" he details that he was no match for her, nothing he did could ever made it work. When the Chili Peppers went to record their seminal "Blood Sugar Sex Magic" album he wrote a song in which he admits to her how bad he felt for screwing up what could have been. He said that he wanted to send it over for her to hear but couldn't muster up the courage.
