Sorted out all my cds at my parents house, never listened to the Judas O bonus disc that came with the best of , obviously it is excellent and there is some stuff I had never heard before, and some of the ones I had heard are far better versions

Also found the zwan bonus dvd, can’t remember what’s on it


#262

Irritatingly short clips of songs that never came out


#263

:jack_o_lantern:


#264

I’m listening to Karen O’s version of Bullet With Butterfly Wings


#265

Its awful


#266

Spent my whole break today designing perfect 10 track Adore albums (and a mellon collie style Adore double album). I do this about once a month…still not got it right


#267

was disappointed adore wasn’t on spotify the other day, had to listen to gish instead. weird album that i’ve never given much attention, it has some great stuff on it, when there was the remnants of their goth beginnings, but with a dreaminess and psychedelic tinge, then there are loads of bad ‘riffy’ grunge songs, would love a full album of good gish


#268

Fuck. Gonna have to try that now. Theres about 40 odd songs from before/during Gish era that would make a pretty good double too!!! Chucking Starla, Drown and Glynis on Gish in place of I am One, Bury Me (although i like that one!!) and Tristessa would make it much dreamier and less knuckleheaded


#269

Wtfff why is adore off Spotify :neutral_face:


#270

Not sure but that suggests you actually aren’t listening to Billly and the gang, and really shouldn’t be posting in this thread at thr moment.


#271

I’m currently listening to a pistachio medely


#272

Billy probably removed it to spite someone who called it a 4/5 album


#273

It’s about a 3/5 because of the second track that makes me want to die inside


#274

Ava Adore? The verse is a little schlocky but the chorus lifts off. Really don’t like the ‘whore’ line, ruins an otherwise nice sentiment. Saw on instagram once someone named their kid after it, that felt weird considering


#275

Would call a kid Starla though


#276

Great song. Up there with their very best.


#277

I also love the fast, heavy ones on Gish, especially live. Siva would probably be in my top five to hear at a show. There’s really nothing like heavy Pumpkins.


#278

I like how we basically have a “listening to The Smashing Pumpkins” thread, “discussion of The Smashing Pumpkins music” thread, and “The Smashing Pumpkins vs. the world” thread, and that they keep blending together because everyone’s so excited about The Smashing Pumpkins that they can’t contain themselves.

I am listening to Karen O. The bullet with butterfly :butterfly: wings riff sounds good on synth
