but i kinda wish he wouldn't play it acoustically live
i wasn't a fan of the version he did at reading last year.
but my WORD the studio version is utterly perfect.
It has little impact just as today does acoustically
is the one on Vieuphoria :D
you're wrong, of course :D
I'm o so right :)
Better Or At Least On Equal Terms:
Bullet With Butterflywings
mayonaise is close, i'll give you that.
i just think that Corgan was always trying to reach this certain kind of meloncholy with his songs, a kind of joyous sadness, and with 1979 he achieved it spot on.
totally wins as well.
yeah, you hate them,but they were ace.
i just think they were totally overrated and made out to be so much more than they actually were.
so i'm free from this. what was the hype?
and HOW CAN TWO PEOPLE MAKE ALL THIS NOISE??!?!?! and.. -=sigh=-
there's this whole thing with me whereby i find that lots of bands fall totally short of what i expect them to sound like. DFA1979 were exactly one of those bands.
they were just really good fun. i don't see how they were that loud.
THEY WEREN'T. and i was so disappointed.
i thought it was brilliant, I can't be the only one who thinks that
corgan play "death from above" and "1979" together at Reading last year? just got that. hee.
i like the video too. and get totally nostalgic every time i hear it.
the sequel they did for perfect id pretty rubbish
with the possible exception of Mayonaise.
But I agree with love for Soma.
But then basically all of Siamese Dream is ace.
I must have listened to it hundreds of times and I never tire of it.
my favourite song of all time. It's so bittersweet and nostalgic and wonderful.
I love how every time I listen to it, I keep waiting for the volume to EXPLODE in true Pumpkins style. But it doesn't and it's perfect for it <3
the song 'Perfect' is perfect? or 1979 is perfect?
though both are valid statements.
I noticed this when I hit 'Post reply', but couldn't be bothered correcting myself. Sorry
When they meet each other all those years later, etc.
The acoustic version of that song is so pretty it aches.
