Bee Girl

I know it's not all that great, but I do like it.
It's quite catchy


You don't wanna be famous, you wanna be shy
Beee, girl, be a girl
Surf little waves big... Charge big waves hard

    I'm so jealous! That's one of the song's I would just LOVE to hear live.
  • I love hearing the studio version because Ed laughs in it, and you can tell he's laughing at the semi-ridiculousness of the song.... fits perfectly.

  • I thought it was nice how they put Bee Girl on Lost Dogs and after a few moments of silence you could hear 04/20/02...thought it was a nice rememberance for Shannon Hoon and Layne Staley B)

    i agree, i have a little chuckle myself at it, good little tune, seems pretty meaningless, yet very true.

    Was the Bee Girl related to Shannon Hoon? I thought I had heard at the time the video was out that it was is sister or something?

    edit - damn getting those e's and O's messed up.

    the bee girl eddie is singing about is from the blind melon video 'no rain'. there's a girl dancing around in a bee costume. eddie met her and her mother in '93. i never thought of the hoon-staley thing, though. both of them died from heroin overdoses. a lot of musicians died that way in the 90's and even after. pretty sad.

    edit: sorry i just re-read your post and it's apparent you already know what i just told you. but i don't know if shannon hoon was related to her?? anyone else??

    OK - I just looked it up. The Bee Girl in the video was Heather DeLoach and Mr Hoon is probably rolling over right now. She was not related to him, in fact he disliked her. I must have been confused with the Bee Girl on their album cover. The Bee Girl on the cover is the sisiter of Blind Melon's drummer.

    why did he dislike her??

    Not sure. This is what the Wikipedia said;

    Shannon disliked DeLoach immensely. According to Hoon, after he stripped completely, DeLoach's parents immediately took her away.

    It's a plea to Shannon Hoon to kick the door.
