Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight Tonight

One of the interesting/maddening things in the Mellon Collie era of Smashing Pumpkins was the singles. There were versions of the singles which had the single and nothing else. Other versions had a few b-sides (which shows that even though Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness had a staggering 28 tracks, it still didn't contain every song they wrote for the album). The Mellon Collie singles were released a third time in The Aeroplane Flies High box set and contained even more b-sides than the standard-issue singles.

This single is the standard-issue with b-sides. "Tonight Tonight" is one of the best songs from Mellon Collie. The b-sides are three ballads which compliment the single nicely. The only unfortunate thing for this single and the other two standard-issue Mellon Collie singles I own is that they just generally make me want to either listen to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in its entirety or take in all the discs in The Aeroplane Flies High.
