Smashing Pumpkins - Eye


YouTube via theclownslayer. If anyone knows the kit list for this one, feel free to share.
""Eye" is a song by the band The Smashing Pumpkins, which featured on the soundtrack of the David Lynch film Lost Highway. Along with the song "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" from Batman & Robin and "Christmastime" from A Very Special Christmas 3, "Eye" represented a period of work on compilations done by the Pumpkins in between the release of the two albums Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and Adore. It also appeared on their greatest hits collection Rotten Apples.

"Eye" is performed entirely by electronic instruments (apart from the vocals), indicating the direction the Pumpkins would take in their up-coming album Adore. The track "Tear" was also considered to be put on the Lost Highway soundtrack, however instead "Eye" was put on, and "Tear" appeared on Adore.

"Eye" was released as a very limited promotional single, and reached number 8 on the US Modern Rock Tracks in 1997."
