Sunshine of your Love (tease)
Corgan: Huh? [unintelligible] It's just like, one, two, boom-boom-boom. Do one of those Lucy kaleidoscopes, with our heads rotating. No, we don't, we only do, the only cover we play, um, we've only played two covers, uh, Time Has Come today, and uh, um, What Goes On by The Velvet Underground and that's it. Ready? Okay. This song is called Jennifer Ever.
