CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
BULLETS WITH BUTTERFLY WINGS
“…The world is a vampire
sent to drain...”
Billy Corgan, lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins, wrote "Bullets With Butterfly Wings", one of the most insightful and relatable tracks of the 1990s.
Its lyrics obviously touched a chord with the Generation X audience, enthusiastically embracing the chorus: "despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage".
The song has elements of punk and grunge, fuelled by anger. It was included on the group's 'Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness'. Both the single and its parent album came out in 1995.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
