Default Let's Hear It for The Boy

Forget Blew Away. This is the song James Iha should be performing at concerts. Or maybe let him do both. Either way, I love this song.


The Smashing Pumpkins - The Boy from La Tigre on Vimeo.

Honestly, The Boy is the only Iha song I like. Dude can't really sing, or maybe he just has no confidence in his voice. But this song is fun to listen to.

The Boy should have been on the album following 1979. Great song. I actually love all of Iha’s songs. The Bells is another one that would’ve fit great on MCIS in place of Take Me Down.

Ah, well I do like Bugg but it barely feels like a song.

I definitely would have rather had The Boy on Mellon Collie than Take Me Down. I always skip the latter.

"The Boy" is too short for a comfort break...

Good feel-good song. I like the guitar and drum sound.

I’ll be honest... I think that The Boy, Go and Blew Away are the only Iha songs I’ve ever made it the whole way through. Generally I find his vocals grating as hell. A Night Like This is so off-key I usually scream if I don’t skip over it fast enough to miss the first couple lines.

I forgot about that show. The version of the Boy is way too fast. The cover of "Cars" was cool, they should have recorded that for the BWBW single.

I still don't understand why Delusions of Candor was not part of any reissue...
