The Most Beautiful Songs of the Rock and Roll Era

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Thirty-Three - The Smashing Pumpkins

This song is a bit obscure I guess, but you should give it a listen. It's one of those songs that every one can relate to because every one has been there. Everybody has put on a happy face during crushing depression, everybody has faced the world all alone. No one has told that story better than Billy Corgan.

This is a fan favorite, but thought it deserves at least a mention in ANY beautiful song list. Seriously, if you have never heard the song and you just studied the words you would tear up... Not for sadness, but from beauty.

I don't think anyone has written about putting on a brave face for the world better than Billy Corgan... This song is beautiful.

Totally agree that this song makes the list. There is something that is just special about this song from the voice to the music.
