Doesn't it kinda sound like a Green Day song?

Maybe it's just the background singing...

Why does comparing them to another artist and/or choosing to make dumb decisions make me a new fan? Ehh...

I couldn't remember what year this song came out so I went to Wikipedia and found this out:

". Bob Rock (of Aerosmith and Metallica fame) signed on to co-produce his debut album. His first album, Tal Bachman, featured what would eventually become its hit single, "She’s So High," which reached #1 on three different radio formats in Canada. The song became a multi-format Top 10 hit in the United States and internationally, earning BMI's "Song of the Year" award. "

Fucking Bob Rock produced that, must be nice having a famous father. I also found this which made me think this is one of the coolest guys ever:

"He is a former member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who went on an unpaid mission to Argentina and was for a time a Sunday School teacher. He has since renounced his religion, stating "the only way Mormonism makes any kind of sense, is when it is assumed to be a very man-made fraud."

Hey I know you're 16 and Green Day is a new artist to you and all, but they did have some albums in the early 1990s. Check em out.

Actually the songs style Under Your Spell reminded me of was 1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours songs....mostly the song Green Day, Disappearing Boy, and Dry Ice. Honestly I haven't listened to anything by them later than Warning (which I didn't like so I stopped) other than what I've inevitably heard on the radio. And I'm certainly older than 16 but it truly doesn't matter...

Does not sound like a Green Day song. More Pixies than Green Day, and not even really Pixies. Just sounds like some late 80s groove.

But it is a great song.

That shit's all over my MP3 player.
Even songs like Cross and Vigil (which are only arguably SP songs, really.) I wish we had much better quality versions.

There's a new wave song--and I'm trying to find out who did it/what it was--that actually sounds musically and lyrically very similar to She. I'm frustrated now!

Edit: Nevermind, I was probably thinking about The Cure's "Friday I'm in Love."

I'm not into Pumpkins' early work, but I love everything after the first album.
I'm not into Marilyn Manson, but I love everything before his first album.

She kind of sounds like something the Police would do.

Good call here!
It's true, though...in the Pumpkins work pre-1992 your can hear bits and bobs of music derived from elsewhere (usually classic rock and contemporary rock hits of the time) pretty clearly.

I Am One = bass line from Been Caught Stealing (Jane's Addiction) + Welcome to the Jungle (GnR) Riff
the end of Window Paine = that little riff & snare interlude from Stranglehold (Ted Nugent)
"Bury me in love..." guitar part is reminiscent of the one in "Born to Be Wild"
Razor = Waiting Room (Fugazi)

Also, Disarm was probably inspired by Elanor Rigsby (The Beatles)

Nile. It has been a struggle lately. That is exactly what I feel like I am doing..soldiering on. The quality of teh N-Board is declining at an alarming rate. My heart really isn't in it much. Any words of encouragement??

The power of change is in your hands: you must grasp it.

For the Stranglehold/Windowpaine thing just listen to 5:55 in this video.

But yeah, I forgot about Rumble. It may have been a precursor to both.
