Billy should protest by staying away from Disneyland, not to have been chosen for a new Disney version of the song.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I actually like... Billy's version... better. It's more interesting to me.

Vocally? Sure, the AF one is superior. But that's because of Billy's terrible weird vibrato bullshit he can never stop. But arrangement? It's boring.

Also, Billy Corgan is one of the greatest to have ever done it when it comes to choosing and putting his spin on other people's songs. Some artists know how to do it well, and some don't. He's of the former. From the covers in TAFH set, and everything since, I love just about all of them.

"Truly I tell you, all sins and blasphemes will be forgiven for the sons of men. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Grammer will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin. He said this because they [the Pharisees] were saying, 'He has an ingrammatical spirit'."

i also think he can do interesting covers and could have compiled a great collection for a covers album at some point.
even before TAFH, you had Landslide, Dancing in the Moonlight, Isolation, Never Let Me Down...

does anyone know anything about WHY Bill covered this song at the end of every show? was he auditioning for disney's dumbo remake? and then bam someone at disney chooses AF over BC? I feel like that must have royally pissed off BC. it is like a slap in the face. i wonder if billy had knowledge of AF being chosen? it seems to weird and coincidental for a modern band to have been chosen to cover baby mine for disney - goes against their corporate norm. and with SP covering it at every show - waaaaay too coincidental.

Here's hoping Augie starts telling Dad that his vocal vibrato is hot garbage.

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part, baby of mine.
Little one, when you play,
Don't you mind what they say.

Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear, baby of mine.
From your head to your toes,
You're so sweet, goodness knows.
You are so precious to me,
Cute as can be, baby of mine.
Baby mine, Baby mine.

It's either simply his kid's favorite song or a public display of self-reassurance that the band is still good despite any criticism.

song is easily inline with the kind of closure SP has been doing...

similar-ish to In the Summertime from the 20th anniversary tour. just a funish type ending to a show unexpected for the fans.

(minus the fact that billy comes off like a dick [as usual] trying to frontmansplain to jimmy how a kazoo and microphone work.

Does Tim Burton still make films, or does he just apply a SnapChat "Tim Burton" filter to already existing Disney movies?

1.) holy smokes what is billy wearing? this is beyond explanation. also eating vegan clearly does not mean eating low calorie

2.) i was expecting to like arcade fire's version the most but i didn't enjoy it that much. i agree with Reyngel's comments on this

3.) there is a building-sized ad for Dumbo that i can see out of our windows in la and it has been making me eager to see the movie but that arcade fire video makes me not want to see it. hmm.

Tim Burton, Michael Keaton, and Danny DeVito: a Batman Returns reunion. That's kind of cool.
