Smashing Pumpkins "Go" / Tinted Windows "Back with You"

I don't feel like writing anything substantial today (come to think of it, when have I ever?), so I am going to post the two songs I mentioned in yesterday's review: James Iha's "Go" (recorded by the Smashing Pumpkins in 1999) and James Iha's "Back with You" (recorded by Tinted Windows in 2009). I have a suspicion that the latter is the sequel to the former, and I just realized that they are about 10 years apart.

I'm disappointed that Iha didn't bust out his EBow for the live performance. I still have yet to find out if there is a rough preproduction demo of Iha handling doing the vocals for "Go, Part II," I mean, "Back with You."

If there isn't, I will have to figure out how to use the modern audio technology at my disposal to make a mash-up of Iha's similar tempo, similar lyrical content duology.

Maybe Iha will include his version of the song for his overdue solo album (the follow-up to 1998's Let It Come Down), or maybe he'll write and record a de facto part three with the same pace, the same lyrical content, and the same feedback-y vibe.
