Default Epic cover/reimagining of Tonight Tonight

Hi fellow Pumpkin fans! I just want to share with you my piano cover of Tonight Tonight.



This is not an ordinary carbon copy cover of the song. As a composer coming from a Classical music background (Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart) I took the opening orchestral intro of the song and wove my own 19th century-style music around it. For the video, I used a variety of nostalgic images of the band as well as fairy tale illustrations which pay homage to the beautiful John Craig album artwork on MCIS.

Please leave comments and subscribe to my YouTube channel! You can also follow me at https://www.facebook.com/popnocturne/

Thank you for listening.

This cover totally DESTROYS the original. Totally epic, thanks.

Nah, it's cool. There will always be people who don't appreciate my music, I am bringing something new but some people just want what they already know. But there will be others who will appreciate my passion and love and vision of the song, you can't please everyone. So please, comment whatever you like, but either way thank you for listening.

This is awesome. Ive never heard of this song tho ,- must be a rarity or b side? Can you do Widow Wake My Mind? Thats an SP classic that more people would be aware of.


No it was amazing, tho. Seriously.

Corgan's Bluff never has a "point," per se, so much as a boastful display of how much better an e-stalker he is than the rest of us

i say this of course with love!

Thanks for listening! Yes I put Darcy first on purpose because I have a deep respect for her, no matter what others say. Everyone who worked on MCIS deserves respect and credit for their hard work and talent.

Corgan was telling to be in general no expert in music theory. Doesn't have to do with a special genre.
