What is your opinion of the song Identify? I kind of like it. Its soothing.

I also hate to admit it but I like the song and video for Smoke from her first album.

identify is amazing. as good as anything billy's done but i think it really suits natalie too. if i were going to do a solo cover of any bc song it would probably be this.

its one of my favorite corgan songs. i wish he still had this kind of songwriting style. also pretty pleased natalie imbruglia sung over it, i think corgans voice would have ruined it

Can anyone imagine Corgan singing Identify? Or would his voice just not work for that song?

???
01-17-2008, 04:15 PM
of course it would work, you can hear his kind of cadence even in natalie's vocal. he writes in his own voice. if he sung it personally itd probably have alot of reverb and a tired drawl like on My Mistake or something.

What I dont understand is how he can write such a beautiful track like that and around the same time make such a horrible album like Machina.

I know it might sound lame, but I actually think I would like Billy's voice better. In fact, everytime I listen to 'Identify' I can hear Billy's voice all over it.

i dated a girl who LOVED her. she was an insane fan. she loved identify. when i dumped her she was really fucked up by it and said she couldn't ever listen to her again. haha.

imbruglia is a hack - can't write, can barely sing and corgan wasted this song on her/that release

AND SHE WAS ON NEIGHBOURS ffs- soapie stars are not musicans

ciGarski
01-17-2008, 08:23 PM
she didn't write it so thats not a problem and her voice was perfect for the tune.

flyfire
01-17-2008, 08:27 PM
really? it all in the production then cause she can't sing live

ciGarski
01-17-2008, 08:31 PM
have you listened to the song?


its not performed live (no should it be) so its not a problem.

yeah sorry I should have been more specific.

I was repsonding to this - the opinion of the song, I love the songwriting but dislike how it's sung.

I also have a very low opinion on imbruglia as a musician and so would rather someone else, not necessarily corgan sing it

ciGarski
01-17-2008, 08:36 PM
i always got a boner when she sung the line "lying naked on the floor".

flyfire
01-17-2008, 08:37 PM
ha ha and hence why she was chosen to sing the song - imo

flyfire
01-17-2008, 08:38 PM
now if bc had sung it I could say the same

ciGarski
01-17-2008, 08:40 PM

She's actually an Australian. And she wasn't all that bad for a few pop singles. I was smart enough to hear any of her other material.

On January 4, 2008, Imbruglia and Johns released a statement announcing their divorce (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divorce), citing the tyranny of distance as the main reason.<sup id="_ref-6" class="reference">[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natalie_Imbruglia#_note-6)</sup> Another reason announced was Daniel John's everlasting struggle with anorexia, as described in USA Today (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USA_Today).

In 1999 Natalie released the Billy Corgan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Corgan) of The Smashing Pumpkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smashing_Pumpkins) written single Identify. The dark, brooding song — an artistic departure for Imbruglia — appeared only on a CD single and on the soundtrack for the movie Stigmata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stigmata_%28movie%29).

^ is that true that there's a physical cd single for identity?

don't worry; you have nick cave to make up for it! (plus i was always rather fond of michael hutchence).

flyfire

he does make up for a lot of it. inxs has always been a guilty pleasure for me too

out of the things I want BC to release, his voice on identify is near the top - and i know it isn't going to happen
