Default 1979 seems to be the only SP song crossing over to classic rock radio

A load of 90's musics been moved to the classic format and since SP was huge in the 90's it makes sense that they'd be included, but 1979 is the only song that has so far carried over. 20 years from now is that going to be their one song that carries over and stands the test of time?

Disarm, Today, BWBW, Tonight Tonight, and 1979. Those are the only ones I still hear on a frequent basis on the rare times I actually listen to the radio. I think they will all carry over to classic rock radio in the future.

Those are still played on the rock and alternative stations, but haven't heard em on the oldies circuit yet. But yeah, maybe in the future when the 70's stuff gets phased out and it's mostly 80's and 90's stuff being played.

It's kind of odd how you'll never hear Ava Adore or Everlasting Gaze on the radio anymore... Zero very rarely too.

Cherub Rock
Today
Disarm
Tonight, Tonight
Zero
BWBW
1979

these are the only SP songs I have ever heard on any radio station around here, except for Drown once in the middle of the night on a now defunct alternative station. I've never heard any Adore or Machina songs on the radio at all.

Ava Adore used to get played all of the time, I wonder why that's literally dropped out of rotations entirely

I have no idea. It's hard to make inductions about what is getting radio play nationally because different stations in different cities have different "canons" for lack of a better word. When I first got interested in music I would listen to the 2 or 3 DC area alt rock stations all the time and basically just hear Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Coldplay, and some post grunge shit like Staind. Then I spent a summer in another city and their alt rock station played Pixies, The Cure, REM, as well as contemporary stuff like The Strokes, Interpol... my whole musical world was suddenly blown open.

SP actually gets played more on the Pixies, Cure type station... And even then it's only Today, 1979, Disarm. The more "rocky" station only seems to play 1979 and Bullet

We have a "mix" station that plays 1979 and and an alternative station that plays a ton of Pumpkins (1979, Drown, Landslide, Tonight, Tonight, Bullet, Cherub, Today and Disarm).

I understand it though; 1979 is different than the other hits.

no way!? You actually hear Try on an FM radio station? I never even heard it played at all in it's initial release on the radio OR on TV... was a flop from the get-go in Canada.

It's always interesting to hear whats going on in pop-culture, and the radio stations always mix it up... I listen to my MP3 player all of the time, but sometimes the radio hit's the spot... Especially if you're driving with people who you don't exactly share a common ground with music-wise.

I'm surprised Canadians didn't love this song.. it's a pretty gay song.

my bad, Landslide does get play once in awhile here. And Tarantula got a fair amount of play in 2007/8.

The airplane races line in TTT always made me picture Diddy Kong Racing.

You almost never hear SP played on the classic rock or alternative rock stations here and if they are then it's almost certainly Tonight,Tonight or 1979 with maybe Bullet With Butterfly Wings on very rare occasions.

The last time I heard SP on the radio was Being Beige. The DJ built it up with announcements of a new SP song on the radio at 6pm, telling people not to miss it. They played it and then the DJ was clearly trying not to say "WTF was that?" on air after hearing it.

1979 was their most successful single... though i think tonite tonite edged it out in europe

those two, BWBW, disarm and today will be played as long as there's FM radio.

kinda weird how it doesn't go beyond that (even the adore and machina singles tracked pretty high for their time) but that's far more than most 'oldies' bands could hope for.

I lived in Atlanta when Machina came out, and 99x (the alternative station in Atlanta) played "The Everlasting Gaze" and "Stand Inside Your Love" every now and again when they were released to stations, but I certainly did not hear them after mid-2000.

I remember "Tarantula" getting a fair bit of play on that same station in 2007. As far as older SP tunes went, you got the basics with "Muzzle" and "Thirty-Three" thrown in every now and again. I heard "Freak" and "The Celestials" two or three times each when those came out. 99x is gone now, but I certainly have not heard any of the Monuments stuff on any of the current Atlanta alternative stations.

I lived in Chattanooga for a little while from 2005 to 2006, and one of the modern rock stations up there played "Perfect" on a fairly consistent basis.

I quoted this song in a term paper for English class in high school, and tried to pass it off as a poem attributed to "William Corgan." Granted, this was early internet days and I doubt my teacher would have bothered to…uh, Altavista it. But I probably wasn't fooling anybody.
