48 Chords

From Billy Corgans Live Journal:

"the most magical moment of these first sessions came when we were set to record a long instrumental piece, at that time called “48 chords” (notable for the fact that the chord sequence did not uniquely repeat until 48 successive chords were played)"






Adore era song written and recorded in 1997. Originally written as an instrumental but was recorded in the studio with vocals from a poem he had written earlier that day.
