Calling a song Strayz and then calling a song on the follow up album Starz is pretty fucking dumb. Both terrible songs too.

it was an attempt to tap into that "new language" that "new kids" use to "get back into mainstream".

don't blame your lack of business skillz on teh bill.

Here Is No Why is pure nihilistic splendetic senescence, and Jellybelly is beyond the realm of written words dude.

most SP songs are either purposefully over or understated by their titles. A song is either "mayonaise" or "porcelina of the vast oceans," "starla" or "behold! the nightmare"

Took me a while to memorize SP songs names. Probably cause I listened most of the material in a short time.

I still struggle with abbreviations tho. It's really easier for me to read/write the first word of a title than figuring out things like "GATGC".

Billy's shitty song titles graphically seen would look like a wave...shitty in his early songwriting days, top mid 90s till 2000, then growing exponentially shittier...f(x) = y

The graph of shitty song titles is f(x) = 1

Graph of song quality is f(x) = sin(X)

I think I may have stumbled onto the origins for the "Pretty, pretty STAR" song title. An excerpt from an interview with Mike Garson (mostly about working with David Bowie):

"I went to visit Billy Corgan at the recording studio, he was making an album. I worked with his band Smashing Pumpkins on a couple of their tours and one of their albums, and I did the movie soundtrack for Stigmata with him. We’re good friends. So I went to see him the other day, and he said, “Oh, I love that last track on Aladdin Sane.” He thought it was called “The Prettiest Star,” and he sang it to me, and it was “Lady Grinning Soul.”

yeah in 2005 Billy blatantly said PPS is a Bowie homage and that the title was to show everyone that yes, he was going there.

I guess I'm the only one who loves pretty pretty star. It was the first song to hook me off future embrace and still probably my favorite.

Than again my fucking name is run to me

Wow. I would love to see your best of list, I am wondering if it would have an affinity with my worst of list.
