Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Disarm’ – Reality Singing Show Fails
Subscribe to Diffuser.fm on
Grunge rocker Filipe Pinto got pretty far on the Portuguese edition of ‘Idol’ by singing alt-rock favorites by the Foo Fighters, Amy Winehouse, U2 and others — and he can definitely sing. Still, his version of the Smashing Pumpkins‘ ‘Disarm’ has a certain aggressive, over-the-top quality to it that suggests he just doesn’t understand the meaning of the song at all. We can’t picture even Billy Corgan strutting around the stage and aping for the camera quite like Pinto does.
