Let It Come Down (James Iha album). Redirected from Be Strong Now). Let It Come Down is James Iha's first solo album. It was released in 1998, during which Iha was still with The Smashing Pumpkins, before the release of Adore. Iha took on a more acoustic country-ish sound reminiscent of the songs he contributed to the Pumpkins, notably shying away from the darker sound of Billy Corgan's songwriting.
James Yoshinobu Iha (井葉吉伸, Iha Yoshinobu) (born March 26, 1968) is an American rock musician. He is best known as a guitarist and co-founder of the alternative rock band the Smashing Pumpkins. He was a member until the initial breakup in 2000. In 1998, Iha released a moderately successful solo album, Let It Come Down. One music video was produced from this album, for the song "Be Strong Now", which was also released as a four-track single. When his former bandmates Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin revived the "Smashing Pumpkins" name, James did not participate, and in fact had not spoken to Corgan in years. Corgan stated in a 2008 blog entry that when he and Chamberlin reunited, the "door was open" for Iha to rejoin, but he declined, and Corgan said that he "can now say definitively that.
Produced by Jim Scott & James Iha. Album Let It Come Down. 1. 2. Be Strong Now Lyrics. Little darling belle With such a fragile shell In the powerful way that love seems to make her All regret it now And if she'd only say what's wrong She can't go on. You've got to be strong now And if I come and hold you now You'll be safe and sound. Little lonely face That no one ever sees You see the thing she believes is life is bittersweet If she'd open up to me And it's the only thing she dreams You gotta believe . Let It Come Down James Iha. Be Strong Now. Sound of Love.
Be Strong Now. Import, CD Single. Audio CD, Single, Import, March 3, 1998. Format: Audio CD. This single is definitely worth purchasing, if not for "Be Strong Now" then for "Falling" - a great non album track. My Advice" and "Take Care" are alright, kind of sappy and not really my style.
