There was a nice thunderstorm today, which, while it spoiled our pool plans, did have a nice calming effect on some other parts of me today. *LOVE* Thunderstorms.
I dedicate this MRT to the Smashing Pumpkins concert which we will NOT be attending because I refuse to pay the obscene amount of money being asked for the tickets to go see Billy Corgan and the people who are not James, D’arcy and Jimmy. Love Billy’s voice as I do (and as much as I would love to reminisce about how he was indeed my high school fantasy boyfriend…), I voted no.
On with it.
- Good Stuff — Shakira
- Falling In Love (In Hard On The Knees) — Aerosmith
- Hey Bulldog — Alice Cooper (From Butchering the Beatles)
- Superfast Jellyfish (featuring Gruff Rhys & De La Soul) — Gorrillaz
- Away — Breaking Benjamin
- Dirrty — Christina Aguilera Featuring Redman
- Seven Days to the Wolves — Nightwish
- Hottrack — MC 몽 (Mong)
- You’re Out — Wonder Girls
- My Blue Heaven — Smashing Pumpkins
Cover of “Landslide” sung by Billy Corgan (Lyrics) in a long-sleeved t-shirt with a giant spider on it (I swear I have that shirt in short-sleeved! Oh Billy!) with his iconic shaved head, playing the acoustic guitar.
This one I remember quite distinctly from my youth, sitting entranced seeing my favorite song performed live. At that point in my life I wasn’t sure if I wanted to kiss D’arcy or be D’arcy. I had a lot of undisclosed emotions back then and no one to talk to them about.
Video: “Tonight, Tonight” The Smashing Pumpkins (Lyrics) live at the MTV Music Awards in 1996, playing with an orchestra, and a projection of space scenes flowing in the background. Corgan, bald again, is wearing a black,floor-length something or another with a star-theme on it that almost glows in the dark. D’arcy and James are wearing creme coloured outfits, James a swingin suit with his awesome hair, and D’arcy a knee-length dress that I tried to find for a dance that year. Her hair is awesome and swept up. The drummer of course is wearing black, because drummers get no love and should be invisible, even if in this song there are some righteous runs.
OK. I’m done.
Enjoy and have a great week.
