What's your mom's favorite sp song mom thread
Posted 14 June 2011 - 07:46 AM
My mum likes Lily ..because she sings it to our dog and strangely she thinks Ava Adore is "quite nice".
My dad brought me to see SP back in '08 and said "that Jimmy guy. He's some drummer." but expressed no song preference

My Dad's who got me into the Pumpkins, but only because he heard 1979 and Tonight Tonight on the radio, their more rock oriented songs surprised him.

She was sick, so I partly think I just picked an awful choice of a song to play for her.
My father passed away before my SP phase began, so I wouldn't know. I'd imagine he'd like a handful of the songs.

my dad is actually the one who got me into sp, but i know way more about them than he does now. he watches all the dvd's with me and took me to see them once last year. i don't know his favorite song but the one that he's praised the most was jesus is the sun.

So she has to leave the room when I start going on about SP and Billy...
But my dad is actually an SP fan, definitely not a massive fan, but fan enough.
He loves SIYL, Cherub Rock, Geek USA, Bullet, ect... all the hits.

My mother in law on the other listens to the pumpkins quite a bit, her favorites are Lily and My Blue Heaven

-Try (I wanna say it was the Machina II version I was playing)
-Landslide (she's a pretty big Fleetwood Mac fan so I think she just enjoys the novelty of this one)
-Tarantula (she REALLY liked this one when it was playing in the radio back in 2007-2008)
-A Song for a Son
The only song of Smashing Pumpkins she has really said she could not stand was "Death From Above," so I would have to agree with her.

But once, I had Starla playing and my mum said "That's quite nice, isn't it." It surprised me because she only listens to Neil Diamond, ABBA and Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals.

Of course, I was exposed to Tonight Tonight at an early age, so maybe I'm immune? :shrug:/>

My dad is neutral about them, he dislikes Billy's voice, hates BWBW when he hears it on the radio, but he does seem to like Today and 1979

I agree, Billy is a great frontman and the only one for the pumpkins. But he isn't a great singer and that's why I don't get annoyed when people mock his voice. He has a gift for songwriting and that's what drew me in, not his voice..I just learned to tune out the bad bits.

my girlfriend likes how SP sounds but hates the angsty lyrics (she's only really listened to the rockers on MCIS). her favorite is the MCIS theme. it does not surprise me since she is a very gifted pianist. she learned that song and plays it for me every once in a while.

lol aww I wouldn't be ashamed to rock out with my mother at a pumpkins concert. She wouldn't go though lol, still "too wild" for her. The crowd that is.
And to keep on topic,
She also really likes "Everlasting Gaze."
