Smashing Pumpkins – “Thirty-Three”

9 Aug 2015 — This ethereal song and its artsy video warrant a post on my personal blog on this particular date.

I’m not a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins, but I respect the greatness that is Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, which is 20 years old. The only songs on the album that I’ve heard are the singles, by way of their music videos. My favorites have always been “1979” and “Zero,” but I’ve discovered “Thirty-Three” a couple of years ago. It’s more timeless than the others and suits the occasion.
