I think D'arcy steals the show in this video. I don't know why, but my eye is always drawn to her, not just because she looks stunning, but because her actions in front of the camera are the most interesting.

The 90's... When music videos were a serious thing. I can remember every part of this masterpiece

That last "we must never be apart" always gives me chills. This is my favorite song.

3:22 Billy Corgan’s prolonged and intense eye contact plus the twitching lips always get me.

This video is truly a work of art. Well worth all the effort they put into it.

This album was so friggin' good. The cohesiveness of it ("Perfect just like me" leading into "Perfect", and don't even get me started on the transition from "Perfect" to "Daphne Descends"). It's funny; in some ways, this album is like the Star Wars prequels. Everyone hated it when it first came out, but people have come around to loving it.

Still watching in 2021. IMO one of the best music videos ever made; the costumes, the sets (and the fact they show it’s a set), the video speed changes, the pauses in lip syncing, the extras and it all just fits perfectly with the song. Always got on the edge of my seat when this would come on MTV. Fond memories of sitting and waiting for your favorite videos to air, the internet took the excitement from that, but now it’s nice to be able to go back and watch any one of them at any time.

Brilliant and timeless. I was fortunate to grow up during this amazing era of music. I named my daughter, Ava Adore.

I love how timeless this video is. It's aged incredibly gracefully and there's nothing that marks it as being 90s. It will always be cool as hell.

Never gets old. I bought all SP cds first when they were released. I still play them daily. Love the Pumpkins🤟

Some people are saying this doesn't even look like the '90s, but in actuality, this video represents many of the best aspects of '90s scene culture and art direction.

even as a teenager, i thought this was one of the most romantic songs - it tugs at my heartstrings every time i hear. i know it's about extreme codependence in relationships, but call it a misguided subconscious fantasy of a girl who doesn't need an unhealthy relationship ~ but still wished to experience something that intense. "we must never be apart..." gawdddd.
im sure im not the only one; otherwise, twilight wouldn't be a thing.

I didn't appreciate how great this song was at the time. Listening and watching now, it's brilliant.

Not even in the 90s was this video seen with this quality, it's good that they are reviving it with this quality and that these generations have a good time with good music like we did.

Lyrics:

It's you that I adore
You'll always be my whore
You'll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl, you're the beauty in my world
Without you, there are no reasons left to find
And I'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me
You'll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left to die
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever leave behind
In time
In you, I see dirty
In you, I count stars
In you, I feel so pretty
In you, I taste God
In you, I feel so hungry
In you, I crash cars
We must never be apart
I'm drinking mercury
To the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind
In time
We must never be apart
And you'll always be my whore
'Cause you're the one that I adore
And I'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me
In you, I feel so dirty
In you, I crash cars
In you, I feel so pretty
In you, I taste god
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
We must never be apart (ah, ah, ah)
