Pumpkins best single...

I'm gonna go with "Stand Inside Your Love", with "Today" in close second, trailed by "Perfect"

I believe "Stand Inside Your Love" is a perfect song, and the video is very intriguing...

"Tonight, Tonight" was their best video, 1979 was the Grammy-nominated song... but yeah, "Stand Inside Your Love" is #1

but "Cherub Rock" was the single that made me go out and buy Siamese Dream and Gish

"Bullet with Butterfly Wings" was a kick in the ass, not many songs that heavy are smash hits

Adore was a great album but didn't really produce any great singles, though "Perfect" did fairly well

Yeah, I know, I love Adore, it was the first Pumpkins album I owned. My friend is a hardcore Pumpkins fan, and got me listening to them. I downloaded the video for Stand Inside Your Love last night, really, really good stuff. I forgot about "1979" though, for a long time it was my fave Pumpkins song, or any song for that matter. Was "Daphne Descends" a single?

While we're on this, what songs should make the cut for the best of that's due later this year? I'm gonna put mine together, then post it later.

nope, "Perfect" and "Ava Adore" were singles, and "Crestfallen" without a video though

contenders for "The Best of"

Gish
Rhinoceros
Tristessa

Siamese Dream
Today
Cherub Rock
Disarm
Mayonaise

Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness
Tonight, Tonight
1979
Thirty-Three
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Zero
Muzzle

Adore
Perfect
Ava Adore
Crestfallen
For Martha or Blank Page

Machina
Stand Inside Your Love
I of the Mourning
Everlasting Gaze
Try, Try, Try
Age of Innocence

Machina II
Vanity
Cash Car Star
If There Is a God

miscellaneous:

Untitled (post-humous quasi-single)
Drown (Singles Soundtrack)
The End is the Beginning is the End (Batman Forever Soundtrack)

oooops, looks like that would be a double cd

narrow it down to:

Rhinoceros
Today
Cherub Rock
Disarm
1979
Tonight, Tonight
Bullet w/ Butterfly Wings
Zero
Thirty-Three
The End is the Beginning is the End
Perfect
Ava Adore
Stand Inside Your Love
I of the Mourning
Try, Try, Try
Vanity
Untitled

this is my best guess, not saying it's my personal "best of" but this is what I would expect to see

I found an SP discography with Daphne Descends listed, it was a promo CD, so I think it was supposed to be a single, but didn't do very well.

Yeah, I know, I couldn't narrow it down, myself, because they have so many unbelieveable songs. I hope that TEITBITE will be on there, though, because I really need it on CD, don't want to shell out the cash for Batman & Robin.

You are kind to an unreal degree. No, I've been trying to download some songs from Machina II, the only one I've been able to get my hands on is If There Is a God, an excellent, excellent song. Do you have anything from the farewell show?

'LANDSLIDE' but I think it was just a b-side, but it was their best song.

tonight tonight has got to be one of the greatest ever film clips.

The Stand vid is very cool. Nice dress Billy.

Disarm was the first Pumpkins song that got me in.

I liked Ava Adore....try playing it on your car radio with the bass cranked up and the windows down. IT FUCKING ROCKS.

* this same technique also makes POP sound like the greatest album ever recorded. Try it sometime.

I'd have to go with Zero, The End is the Beginning is the End is the Beginning is the End is the Beginning is the End is the..., or Everlasting Gaze.
Really liked the punkins when they got loud and raucous.(like them softer too, but raucous is better).

Also really liked their take on "Never Let Me Down Again" that song is great with guitars in it.
