Rhinoceros-Smashing Pumpkins

I bought the Smashing Pumpkin’s Gish on cassette when it was released in 1991.  I was 23, two years out of the military and in a deep depression.  I wasn’t drinking but I was smoking pot every day, all day.  I listened to this, Nirvana’s Nevermind, Ten by Pearl Jam and various Cure releases incessantly.  Everything the Pumpkins did after this recording paled in comparison, in my opinion.  This is my favorite track from Gish.

Planned a show
Trees and Balloons
Ice cream snow
See you in June

Could have known
I would reveal
Should have known
I would conceal your way

She knows, she knows, she knows
She knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it
She knows, she knows, she knows

Colors show
After the moon
I should go
See you in June
Your way

Open your eyes
To these must I lie?
The way

She knows, she knows……
