Music Video: "Being Beige" - The Smashing Pumpkins

Our favorite modern-day American poet Billy Corgan is back with more Smashing Pumpkins goodness. To 6-year-old me, watching the "Tonight, Tonight" music video was akin to watching my favorite cartoon show, or better. I grew up discovering and rediscovering the Pumpkins' vast musical legacy and decided very early on that Corgan had a way with words that spoke to me on a very personal level and tickled my brain in places it had never been tickled before. And so, it shouldn't come as a great surprise that I became immediately obsessed with this beautiful music video and its (sometimes subtle and sometimes quite in-your-face) references to the Smashing Pumpkins' older records. Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie are just two of the great works called forth by the Smashing Pumpkins' new music video to "Being Beige", the first single off of their ninth studio album Monuments to an Elegy. Yes folks, that's a hoodie, get over it. Enjoy!
