Default FOL depreciation thread



this song is so weird, it sort of sounds like Mouth of Babes or something shoegazy from PI, but it also sounds like SP copying themselves. it has hooks but also sucks

feel our love is strange

it's ok, not something i particularly go out of my way to listen to, but upper-tier for most post-Zeitgeist SP2 songs i suppose

"FOL" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins, written and recorded during the sessions for their 2007 album Zeitgeist and used for a Hyundai commercial during Super Bowl XLIII. The song title is an acronym that stands for "Feel Our Love".

Released February 1, 2009
And here I was thinking for the last ten years that it was specifically written for the car commercial, always imagined the Bald Lord licking a polished chrome tow bar that was as shiny as his head, now I have to reassess everything.

The song always sounded like he found some Mellon Collie throw away riff demo, quietly repurposed it with some lazy nonsensical crap lyrics he wrote at a stop light.

It was the first track since the "reunion" that sort of sounded like old SP. The double tracked vocals work well, the guitar tone is good, and the drums rock.

Shame there's no guitar solo, and the chorus is pretty uninspired.

He did the same thing with GLOW but apparently all us fans hated how he made something sound like the band we like.

the guitar tone is on point with Zeitgeist.
I've always likened it to Come on (lets go)

come on (and feel our love)
come on (and feel our love)
come on (and feel our love)
come on (and feel our love)

I seem to recall Billy saying it was a demo never initially intended for release on one of his Q&As

A demo which he threw out for a car commercial.

Anyway
