Nirvana - Where did you sleep last night 

My SO has been listening to this song non-stop the whole week. It grew on me too.

It has an interesting story, which I wasn't aware of: "In the Pines", also known as "Black Girl" and "Where Did You Sleep Last Night", is a traditional American folk song which dates back to at least the 1870s, and is believed to be Southern Appalachian in origin. The identity of the song's author is unknown, but it has been recorded by many artists in numerous genres. <...> Like numerous other folk songs, "In the Pines" was passed on from one generation and locale to the next by word of mouth.
