SMASHING PUMPKOVERS (An A to Z Post!)

There was a time, not so long ago, when The Smashing Pumpkins were one of my favorite live bands.  I haven’t enjoyed them of late, but they still hold a nostalgic place in my heart.  I posted an A to Z a long time ago, leeching off of a huge database of SP tunes.  That database seems to be dead now.  Hence, the need for an update.  And this time, it’s only covers!  There’s a zip file, of course, and a few choice flavors to taste.  If you like it, please consider thumbing up the songs on Hype Machine, submitting to Digg, etc.  Or even dropping me a nice comment!

A is for the always classic, “All the Young Dudes.”  Nobody can mess up this tune.  Nobody.

B is for Boys Don’t Cry (Cure cover). It’s kind of annoying how (Ginger?) keeps talking over it, but it’s still pretty cool anyway.

C is for Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young).  Another tune that’s really hard to f*&%k up.

D is for Duran Duran’s “Nightboat.”  Very esoteric selection there, Billy.

E is for eeek!  The zip file! It totally snuck up on me!  Better cop it before it goes away, ’cause once it’s gone, it’s gone.  I don’t do reups.

F is for Forever Young (Bob Dylan).

G is for another eclectic selection, “Girl Called Sandoz” by The Animals.

H is for the Holidays!  Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

I is for I Want You To Want Me-Smashing Pumpkins with Cheap Trick. Two great tastes that go great together!

J is for Jean Genie (David Bowie).  Another complete reworking, but this one is done with the Man Who Sold The World Himself: David Bowie!  Look at this A to Z I’m giving you, two great team-ups in a row.

K is a tough one, so I’m gonna use the k in the middle of Steve Miller’s The JoKer.  Sorry if that’s cheating.

L is for Lucifer Sam-Billy Corgan solo.  A Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett classic.

M is for the monster in Smashing Pumpkin’s classic favorite cover of Godzilla (Blue Oyster Cult).

N is for Never Let Me Down Again (Depeche Mode).

O is for Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr, two key members of the Cars! You’re All I’ve Got Tonight (The Cars). Love love love this cover.

P is for the people in Beautiful People (Marilyn Manson).

Q is for the proudly queer Joy Division, and SP’s cover of their tune, “Transmission.”

R is for The Rolling Stones’ Stray Cat Blues–one of my favorite Jagger/Richards tunes.

S is for Sookie Sookie (Steppenwolf).

T is for Once in a Lifetime (Talking Heads). This is the Corgan version.  It’s pretty much a new song–very little left of the original.

U is for U2!  Stay (U2 cover).

V is for Velvet Underground’s Femme Fatale (Billy Corgan solo).

W is for White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane) with Heavy Metal Machine.

X is for . . . I got nothing.  Sorry.

Y is for Young Love’s cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ classic, 1979.

Z is for thin liZZy’s, “Dancing in the Moonlight.”  A very nice, gentle cover.
