I was born so beautiful, but now I'm ugly...

Today's cassette tape find was my copy of "Tiny Music From The Vatican Gift Shop" from Stone Temple Pilots. I remember that every Stone Temple Pilots fan out there hated the album when I bought it. I felt like I must be a traitor for enjoying it. Now I realize that I just have better taste than your average STP fan in 1996. This afternoon/evening I shall partake of the Primitive Radio Gods on the drive home. Somewhere around this office is a crappy tapeplayer. I need to hunt it down for use in my deep dark hovel.

Finally got around to ripping all of my Smashing Pumpkins (The Aeroplane Flies High boxset, the Greatest Hits album + bonus disc) and am giving them a listen right now. It appears I may finally be over my SP burnout. I hadn't been able to listen to anything featuring Billy Corgan because I'd hit a point of overkill about 4 years ago. Occasionally I have an urge to listen to a few particular tracks, but the desire faded quickly. So far I don't want to kill myself. We'll see if that changes soon.

Smashing Pumkins - Cherry
Stay with me, I'll set you free
'Cause I can tell you once were pretty
Rose so sad you've lost your petals
Lost the luster off your tattle tales

I need a love to help me find my way
I need a strength that I cannot betray
I need a word to say what I can't say
I need a lover, lover
I need a lover, lover

What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?
Time has lost its hold on me

Hatred sleeps inside my bones
In the stillness of cool air
All the boys have been left for dead
'Cause we go where they fear to tread
The beautiful one's the one's we'll remember
The precious one's our greatest pretenders

I need a love to help me find my way
I need a strength that I cannot betray
I need a word to say what I can't say
I need a lover, lover
I need a lover, lover

And if you lose yourself
Could you take me, too?
Could you rest inside the sleep?

Stay with me, I'll set you free from you...
Stay with me, I'll set you free from you...
Stay with me, I'll set you free from you...
Stay with me, I'll set you free from you...
I need a love...

For someone that has no musical skills, I've too much interest in music. I should open a record store or start writing reviews for a shitty indie mag.
