  1. +1 for Quiet. I'd definitely lose 1979 (or Tonight Tonight; Corgan's voice is at its most grating on that tune) and replace it with Ava Adore, though.

    As is usually the case, the best Pumpkins song is a non-album track - Eye, from the Lost Highway soundtrack.

  2. don't you dare besmirch 1979 for being such a perfect song that everyone knows it. (but seriously, how good was that lost highway soundtrack!)

  3. I can't believe you dickheads left off "XYU." That song is one of the best EVER. Not just by SP.

  4. haha, come now jason, you gotta be able to see why that one didn't make it.....the song is amazing, yes, but not one of their best.....the anger seems more legit in "tales of a scorched earth" and the guitar is much less sloppy in "FY(AOTN)".....so what you miss in x.y.u. is picked up in other songs that we did include.....x.y.u. is a perfect example of how billy and jimmy just love to jam/masturbate.....the song would have made the cut if they made their point without rambling on for 7 minutes (kinda like i just did)

  6. What Natalie said. I never liked 1979 -- I'd remove it AND Tonight, Tonight. I was always partial to Luna.
