Crush has cool lyrics but Siva is definitely my favourite from Gish. One of my favourite SP songs ever actually. It's very definitive of the style of what the band were playing at the time.

I think Rhinoceros is probably the first great work of the Pumpkins with their signature pianoforte style.

Snail easily gets my vote, too. Even though it lasts only about a second I think the way Billy sings "when the sun shines climbs through your window into your bed" is incredibly beautiful. That part always really stands out for me in that song.

I was lost between Bury Me and Snail, but finally decided that Oceania is better which I suppose is not entirely true. Do I need to burn these lies off my soul or is it ok?

Why is it that you Eastern Europeans always have weird ass tastes/preferences when it comes to Smashing Pumpkins?

Do you mean that the ending of Bury Me isn't great or are you just generalizing upon my comment?

It seems like they (Russian Iha, CROPUMPKINS, that guy who was anti-cropumpkins, etc.) are always espousing opinions which seem almost deliberately contrarian to the taste of other Pumpkins fans because of their seeming outlandishness (e.g. WOCOAN was one of the best songs off MCIS...Machina/Zeitgeist/Oceania is some of the greatest music lately and better than X classic Pumpkins record...comments of that nature.) Things that seem frankly bizarre and make them seem as though they've been deprived of rock music wherever they live and thus are simply desperate to like something. I guess a sort of similiar phenomenon was how non-American Pumpkins fans actually seemed to react far more positively towards Adore when it was released...as though they were more accepting of the style of music in general.
