I doubt it was Infinite Sadness, as that was literally a Siamese outtake that the engineers specifically identified as a future b-side.

Medellia was recorded after MC was completed, so I don't think that was it. SP seemed to have a history of going back in a studio and cutting (or re-cutting) additional songs right after they completed an album proper, songs that probably fell to the way side after a big push to finish the record. Medellia seemed to be one of those tracks. Also Corgan tells an interesting story in the Aeroplane reissue box (which I was meaning to transcribe and 1include it in the Recording Sessions) in which he devised a challenge to release 28 b-sides to match 28 album tracks. So all of 1996 was spent tracking down any unfinished MC-era song-scrap and finishing it for a b-side purpose, and again, Medellia was just one of those.
Well, I included "Infinite Sadness" because it is on the official vinyl tracklist when it originally came out, which is probably the only thing that I love about the vinyl tracklist. I hate the vinyl track order, but that song would make an amazing album closer. Wish the CD included it.

For me, "The Aeroplane Flies High," "Pennies," and "Mouths Of Babes" are my top 3 b-sides.
