The Smashing Pumpkins (12.6K)

Today is the greatest,
Day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow's much too long
I'll burn my eyes out,
Before I get out

I wanted more,
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore,
Of saving face

Today is the greatest
Day I've ever known
Can't wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I'll tear my heart out
Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings...

Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day

I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you

Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

Smashing Pumpkins, "Today", off the album "Siamese Dream"

I first heard the Smashing Pumpkins when Siamese Dream came out. Of course I loved the new style they created. If you haven't heard them yet, start with Siamese - preferably with the song "Today" (my favourite).

Then I bought Gish, which I turn to when I feel like a rawer version of the Pumpkins style but I stil think that Pisces Iscariot is the best Smashing Pupkins album.

Mellon Collie on the other hand I think is already overdoing it. Maybe I still need to hear it a little more, but I feel the Pumpkins have reused their formula once too many. When it's hard to tell which song is which...
