I think mine might be Bodies:
Followed by Cherub Rock
I named my cat after this song :)
ideally if they are epic ballads, so Drown is my favourite. Top three would include Soma and Mayonaise.
holy moly the arrangement is lush.
not 'by a mile'
I'll say Real Love, but this will probably change tomorrow.
Soma or Thru the eyes of Ruby, probably
FUCK, don't make me chose, you chode
was listening to Mellon Collie for the first time since 2009 last night. Listened to the whole thing, still glorious.
Don't tell anyone but I still love 'We only come out at night'.
stand inside your love
not a popular choice i realise
because of the outro - the best I've heard in any song.
blew me away as a relative pup.
when i saw the thread title, before i hovered the mouse over it, the first song i thought of was Bodies. In truth there are plenty i could say, depending on my mood
where boys fear to tread into bodies is a great slice of that album.
probably X.Y.U. though.
purely because of the intros <3
But overall I think it's probably 'Tonight, Tonight'.
Big fan of 'Dross' from Machina II as well.
For a long time Soma and Bodies were my favourites..
I also am a huge fan of Corgan's cover of Landslide on Pisces Iscariot
Geek USA, Rhinoceros, 1979, Appels + Oranjes, Starla, Zero, Freak.
And that's just with no more than one from an album. I'd have to add another 7/8ths of Siamese Dream and 3/4 of Gish before I felt that I hand't left grievously omitted anything.
But the piano intro to Melon Collie (forgot the title) is particularly evocative for me.
I Am One Pt 2 which I only have in realmedia format cos I'm such a fucking fanboy fuck.
(actually, set the ray to jerry)
cos I always though I Am One Pt 2 is a really hard song to love.
it became a running joke with my mate we reckon he called it Lilly because it was the closet he could get to Billy with seeming self indulgent..we're probably wrong lol
You were both right.
is the sweetest song about a stalker ever.
but Hummer, man. HUMMER.
I liked them. That live mtv video with Billy in the silver trousers.
Can I have all of Siamese Dream?
Okay, going on pure instinct alone and trying not to think about it too much...
2) Thu The Eyes of A Ruby
3) ...Said Sadly
4) That's The Way My Love Is
7) For Martha
8) A Song For A Son
10) By Starlight
Good to see that in here, love that tune.
I love the live versions of Ava Adore, pretty heavy.
The version from the Machina tour is incredible. The ones that stick closer to the record are a bit less enjoyable.
Great intro, music and lyrics. And that solo is great fun.
MY GOD, THE DRUMS
Still amazes me every time.
maybe muzzle, maybe mayonaise, maybe medellia of the grey skies, musically that bit after the intro of hummer where the guitars really take off
to appear in this list. What an amazing song
dag now-now dag bibibibibibibibi
That's the Way My Love Is is a BRILLIANT song.
Fuck, I love Smashing Pumpkins.
on MTV's 120 minutes. :) Didn't fall for Nirvana right away, and this showed me there might be life after the Bunnymen. :)
Adore is the record I pull out 3x's as often as any other SP albums.
rhinocerous at the moment. but its a ridiculous question really. i have about 100 favourite smashing pumpkins songs :D
