90s at 9 'She Don't Use Jelly'

Wayne Coyne said, "The song came to me very quickly, and I thought it was sort of funny."

In late 1993 The Flaming Lips released the song "She Don't Use Jelly" from the album Transmissions from The Satellite Heart.  It is their biggest radio hit to date. It's the band's only song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #55. It also reached #9 on the Alternative Songs chart. 

Wayne Coyne said, "The song came to me very quickly, and I thought it was sort of funny." 

The lyrics are funny, silly really, they describe a girl who "thinks of ghosts" and puts vaseline on toast, a guy who "goes to shows" and uses magazines to blow his nose, and another girl that "reminds [the track's narrator] of Cher" and uses tangerines to make her hair orange. 

The song became popular after being featured on MTV's Beavis and Butt-head almost a year after the album's release.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
