Smashing Pumpkins: an appreciation

Wow. I just realized that the Smashing Pumpkins' back catalog was added to Rhapsody today, including essential early and mid-90s releases like Gish & Siamese Dream and b-side compilation Pisces Iscariot. Click here for a sampler of some of my favorite Pumpkins songs, from when Billy Corgan still advocated lysergic self-medication and before drummer Jimmy Chamberlain got hooked on the horse.

Thanks for pointing this out. The only SP song I have listened before was that Depeche Mode cover. Now I know why my bandmates like them so much.

Oh wow. I was just thinking of playlist ideas today and lamenting the lack of early SP. Seminal stuff here for sure. Thanks for letting me know...my day is now complete.

OK. I may have to go over and write a post of my own about this blessed event. Just started listening to the playlist and I can't believe how much I missed hearing their music 'on-demand.' Rhapsody, you rock. In a big, big way.

Looks like something's gone wrong with those tracks. They're all locked now and unavailable. Any idea what the story is?

none of the pumpkins' albums have ever been available on rhapsody. though i have read recently (can't remember where) that rhapsody was soon to be adding the albums. so, maybe soon...

They're back up now, along with a 114-song compilation of rarities and b-sides. Enjoy! I know I will.
