Default Winterlong

It's one of my favourites actually. Don't think it's much appreciated. How many stars would you give it?

it's a nice song. from among all those billy acoustics (sparrow, blank, vanilla, to love you, winterlong) i like it the most i think. it's catchy in its own way

shit, right, I forgot about all those beautiful machina acoustic demos.
but in that case, 'laugh' outshines 'here i am' easily


//edit: I forgot about yet one more cutie: "Freedom Ain't What it Used to Be". That's my winner!

Laugh beats all other acoustic demos in my eyes. So simple yet so effective and beautiful, but noone ever mentions it.

i was just driving around yesterday and started singing Winterlong to myself and it really hit me all the sudden that i really love this song and dont listen to it as much as i should.
there is something about raw demo-sounding acoustic billy songs..
they really are some of my favourites, and really capture a chunk of that pumpkins essence.
stumbeleine, sparrow, winterlong, all of the machina acoustic demos. wow, machina demos are great

bah, you say that cause of all the minor chords. too many minor key BC songs. that's why it isn't as fresh as "Here I Am".

"laugh" is really cookie-cutter BC.

I'll agree with that. That and W.P. (but the band does kick in at the end)

I think Winterlong is in my top 10 least favorite Billy sung SP songs. I really can't even come up with a reason. In my opinion, it's just flat out bad.

You're saying that Laugh and Here I Am are better than songs like Jupiter's Lamet, Medellia Of The Grey Skies, or Stumbleine?

Here I am is a fucking great song.

Winterlong is a 4 star song to me but that was the recorded version. I love the bass on that song.

Probably one of the greatest Pumpkins songs in my eyes. Five stars.

Laugh is one of my very most favorite songs that Billy's written. Love it.

that's bullshit, Laugh and Here I Am are both mentioned regularly. Drain is the one that's only ever mentioned by me.
