From SPCodex, The Smashing Pumpkins wiki

"Cyr" is the first Smashing Pumpkins single from their eleventh studio album, CYR. Corgan told Rolling Stone, "Cyr is dystopic folly, one soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn’t possible with faith.". The Linda Strawberry-directed music video was well-received, and Jimmy Chamberlin's dance moves became a fan favorite, ultimately dubbed the #jimmyshimmy on social media. AllMusic said the song invoked the "tense, trembling atmospheres the Pumpkins excel at". "Cyr" peaked at #21 on the Billboard Rock Digital songs chart and at #22 on Alternative Airplay in 2020.
