Professional Widow

Professional Widow is a song written by American-born singer and songwriter Tori Amos. It was originally a harpsichord-driven punk rock dirge included on her 1996 album Boys For Pele but it got international popularity after being remixed by techno musician Armand Van Helden[?]. The remixed single (entitled "The Star Trunk-Funkin' Mix") hit number one on the charts.

The original song, an in-your-face and accusatory piece accusing Courtney Love of the murder of her husband, Kurt Cobain, had been edited down to the lines "Honey/Bring it close to my lips" and "It's gotta be big." The song was then further remixed by artist Mr. Roy[?], spawning an entirely new CD-single of remixes that again took to the charts.
