sounds like it.

Set the Ray to Jerry

"Another remnant of a distant Siamese Dream past, 'Set the Ray to Jerry' was first written somewhere during the Gish tour. It's always been a band favorite, and seemingly only the band's, because no one ever mentions it. A sweet, simple song featuring only bass, drums, and some delayed James guitar. One night Flood and I put everything we had on a couple of tapes (about 40 songs) and just drove around Chicago until 3:30 in the morning deciding what was on or off the album. When we listened to 'Set the Ray,' it really moved me, but when I looked over to Flood he just shook his head no. That was the end of 'Set the Ray' on the album, because I trust Flood's opinion so much."

2:28 - 2:44 in WBFTT...the sick guitar work (James?) in the right channel. Adds so much to the song. Have to rewind it several times every time I hear it.

The first minute or so of G+tGC... fucking sweet drum pattern and kickass bassline anchor a psychedelic guitar freakout. I could listen to this and never get sick of it. The first four minutes of this song are, IMO, one of the best things they've ever done in the studio.

Fucking there's a moment in We Only Come Out at Night. Starting at 2:20-2:23/24. There's a little bleepy thing that is just superb.

Definitely almost all of their songs has a little something extra that's a nice addition, but one thing that I noticed recently is during a live performance of Lily (My One and Only), right after BC says "But there's an officer knocking at my door..." you hear Jimmy hit his high hat four times as if knocking. Pretty cool

The fade out/outro section of Beautiful, you can hear Billy's emotions pouring through the lyrical delivery:

Quote:
don't let your life wrap up around you
don't forget to call, whenever
i'll be here just waiting for you
i'll be under your stars forever
neither here nor there just right beside you
i'll be under the stairs forever
neither here nor there just right beside you
Haven't seen that as much recently.

Thru the Eyes of Ruby..."My Love for you just can't explain" And then when he says "Why" how it just so forms to the music above it. It's beautiful. And then the outro to that song. "The Night has come, to hold...us...YOUNNNNNNNNGGG" It's magnificent.

I'm also a HUGE fan of the intro to the Speed Kills Single Version. It's so great.

One my favorites. I just love that bass line and the synths. The lead guitar during the "when i ride/with you tonight" section is amazing.

I always liked the end of Whir, when out of nowhere it changes to minor key. Actually, I like a lot of outros. Ruby, Muzzle, Hummer, Drown (full), Obscured...

I'm not even sure how to describe it but on Mayonaise it always felt as if the "bottom" drops out under the guitars. In fact, I feel that way about most of SD. I would kill to recreate that dreamy destortion on my rig. Also, I think the "I feel free" part of frail and bedazzled is one of my all time favorite SP moments.
