Song of the Day: Smashing Pumpkins, "Landslide"

Song of the Day: Smashing Pumpkins, "Landslide"

You know Stevie Nicks wrote a damn fine song if both The Dixie Chicks and Billy Corgan can sound great singing it. Not surprisingly, I'm loving this cover of "Landslide" recorded by The Smashing Pumpkins for the 1994 album Pisces Iscariot.

This bittersweet acoustic version is a great showcase for Corgan's fragile vocals and a welcome foil to the more metallic sound on the Pumpkins' new album, Zeitgeist, which hits stores today. On past releases, I really enjoyed the way Corgan (performing at Live Earth, at left) balanced harder rock tunes with ballads, and I wish Zeitgeist had a bit more of the latter. To hear the Smashing Pumpkins cover Stevie Nicks' "Landslide,"

Thanks to I Guess I'm Floating for posting the track.

I LOVE this version. It reminds me of my teen years, when I was an almost obsessive fan of the pumpkins, and I got my friend who went on trip to the U.S. to bring me this CD, wich was hard to find in my country. I'm talking about 1995, so there was no to help me. So the record is more special for that reason. Billy is such an amazing talented man, i love him. I'm going to buy my copy of Zeigeist ASAP!!!

The Pumpkins just left Asheville last week after a 9-show stand. Everybody seems to miss them now! We got used to them being here. Landslide is just a perfect song. The live version of Stevie Nicks singing with Lindsey Buckingham on guitar is my favorite.

Oh I absolutely love this song, I discovered it a few years ago and it was my staple song to put at the end of all my mix cds - I loved it that much! It is so beautiful! You might allso like the cover they do of Dancing in the Moonlight, it is pretty fab too.
