Track 12 from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Length: 00:03:44
Year: 0000
Track Description:
"My life has been extraordinary, blessed and cursed and won..."
The lyrical content of this song has been an influential force behind my life since it came out while I was in the beginning throes of adolescence. The Pumpkins were my first musical love, and this song still resonates. In fact I scrawled the lyrics inside the cover of the journal I kept while backpacking Europe. I highly recommend this song to anyone and everyone.
"And I knew the silence of the world..."

Track 7 from Blue Album

Year: 1994
Track Description:
Some of my favorite moments with friends have been we've all erupted into song.

Again with the sexiness. Included not only because it's Prince, the King of Naughty, but also because I have a great memory of mopping my apartment in Italy with my roommates. We entered into chick flick stereotype-land by dancing around the place, singing into our mops and brooms. Kissy faces included, naturally.
