angsty diatribe on Billy Corgan?

Thats what they said.  Courtney dated Corgan,  frontman for SMASHING PUMPKINS,  before hooking up with Kurt Cobain, frontman for NIRVANA.   In this video you can see that Melissa Auf der Maur has joined the band on bass guitar,  replacing the actual bass player you hear on this track, Kristen Pfaff, who ended up on the floor of her Seattle apartment dead from acute opiate intoxication,  just a few months after Cobain stuck his shotgun in his mouth.  Kristens mom still suspects foul play.

And the sky was made of amethyst
And all the stars were just like little fish
You should learn when to go
You should learn how to say no

Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
When they get what they want, and they never want it again
And they get what they want, and they never want it again
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to

And the sky was all violet
I want to give the violent more violence
And I’m the one with no soul
One above and one below

Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever

When they get what they want, and they never want it again
When they get what they want, and they never want it again
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I dare you to

I told you from the start just how this would end
When I get what I want, then I never want it again
Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything I want you to
If I don’t mind, you don’t mind

Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on take everything, take everything, take everything, take everything

happiest tune about school shooter’s ever

Quick shout out to Nectere,  who also liked this song.

PUMPED UP KICKS

Robert’s got a quick hand
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he’s a cowboy kid
Yeah found a six shooter gun
In his dad’s closet hidden oh in a box of fun things, I don’t even know what
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You’d better run, better run, out run my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet

Daddy works a long day
He be coming home late, he’s coming home late
And he’s bringing me a surprise
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice
I’ve waited for a long time
Yeah the slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger
I reason with my cigarette
And say your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You’d better run, better run, out run my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet

FINAL ECHOES

With the demise of Richard Wright,  Dave Gilmore says he wont perform ECHOES ever again.  Now you can see why.  Wright was an integral component to this tune.

Great rendition.

 

Small Faces: Itchycoo park

You go there and get high and find yourself feeding the ducks with a bun.  Yah, Itchycoo park.   First time most people ever heard a drum run through a flanger,  yah thats Kenney Jones who would later go on to replace Keith Moon in THE WHO.    Singer  Steve Marriott  who almost formed a band with David Bowie,  left the band in 1969 and ended up joining Humble Pie,  a band also featuring Peter Frampton.  Marriott ended up getting wasted and nodded out in bed with a cigarette or something,  died of smoke inhalation due to his inability to get out of his burning house. The rest of the Small Faces went and grabbed Ron Wood, future Rolling Stone, and some dude with a big nose called ROD STEWART, and dropped the ‘small’ from their band name and became THE FACES.   Along with duck references,  as a kid I was fond of the lyric:

“YOU CAN MISS OUT SCHOOL,  WONT THAT BE COOL? WHY GO TO LEARN THE WORDS OF FOOLS? ”

EPIC TUNE!!
