Studio Recording: “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” by Smashing Pumpkins (Piano Cover)

I’d figured this song out about a year ago, and then of course, chose not to document it or practise it. The result was that I had completely forgotten how to play it. A couple of weeks ago, I rolled the original track on my iPhone and listened carefully, I worked through the notes on my piano, and finally came up with this arrangement.


“Bullet with Butterfly Wings” by The Smashing Pumpkins was released in 1995 in their double album “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness”. It is perhaps their best know song, and went onto to win the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance. This is the only song that comes to memory when I think of the band today.
