As I cannot compete anyway, I’m gonna break every rule
Marquis In Spades as a single, because it’s 1 of their most brutal songs. I love it.
B-sides: I Fall & Alabaster (live)
To give it that old Pumpkins look, this is the artwork of my choice. Red vinyl, limited edition of 1,000.

My next upload is the CD single for Pug, which should have been a single anyway to my humble opinion. It fits the rules of the contest also, correct me if I’m wrong. As b-sides I choose Eye and My Mistake, 2 beautiful songs that fit this single pretty well. Standard release US and EU, no extraordinary things. Just a good single.

Delabel CD huh? Sweet!
I think Pug w/ those B-sides would make a really great single. Nice job.

Single: Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
B-sides: By Starlight
Interview with Billy Corgan
Format: Compact Disc
These 2 songs have such a \"depth\" to them. Together they compliment each other quite well

Hello everybody. This will be kind of a unique post, I registered to this very forum to submit my contribution to this contest. By the way sorry for my terrible English, I’m French.
My choice: Bugg Superstar.
Alone. Because it was the only Smashing Pumpkins song that deserved to be an incredible single and wasn’t released the way it should have been.
This is my artwork:

Hi Chrysantheme! Welcome on this cozy board, and I’m sure you are serious. The judges of this contest will choose you as the winner, no doubt.
We do call for more entries however.

Single: Geek USA
Format: CD single
Siamese Dream deserved one more single, why not Geek USA?! A classic jam from a classic jammin’ album.

toad32r, you seem to bring in quite some quality here!
However, my next contribution is going to blow you all away. Period.
Slunk on 7\" vinyl. Homemade by Billy Corgan, for his friend and music partner Jimmy Chamberlin. Only 1 copy…
Consider this Billy’s invention of the b-side single with a c-side.

I own that! JC and I are TIGHT! He said he didn’t want to be reminded of his singing days anymore and sold it to me some time ago. How’d you get that picture?

Do you realize this thingy is worth almost as much as the real Machina II vinyl?
I only know it from this pic, to be honest. I have a friend that is kinda close to Billy, and Billy send him a copy of the artwork long time ago. What Billy told him was that he gave Jimmy this single together with the Mashed Potatoes set, as he wanted to give him a somewhat extra special Xmas feeling…

I actually had to sell it back to Jimmy when he learned how rare it was. At first he thought it was cheaply made and mass produced. He said Billy was asking him about it, and didn’t want to piss him off.
