If the Pumpkins released a best of now, what songs, if any, released since ‘Untitled’ would deserve to be on there?

(The answer is Zero)

Tarantula
United States
Neverlost
Stitch in Time
Freak
Quasar
Panopticon
Pale Horse
The Chimera
Silvery Sometimes
Solara
Marchin’ On

Pretty decent compilation, that.
