Now I’m even more bummed we will probably never hear it since you don’t agree that they recycled any of it for other songs. Haha. Is there a song or two in their discography that you’d compare it to? Or, if it was on Dude Ranch, where would you place it in an album ranking? Top/middle/low? And is that the only song on the demo tape we haven’t heard? I’ve read some conflicting info that there may be a second unreleased song on it? There's the alternate version of Voyeur that never saw the light of day either. The overall concept of the song is the same but the lyrics and music are different. The untitled one I just described is really a great track. Some parts probably were used in other songs, but I have never really felt a for sure "yeah that's from that untitled track" feeling, which is what Mark makes it seem like. I could be totally wrong on that. Parts feel like some other tracks, but that's true of that era of Blink in general. Most of Tom's little licks sounds similar or have a similar picking style, at least. It's hard to compare the track against the rest as I heard the others so many more times with such better production. Nonetheless, I think the track is great. The song as a whole probably isn't that special, but it's all a build-up to the overlapping Mark & Tom vocals. To me, that's one of the things that made Blink so special. Pathetic is similar in the part where Mark rings out "This is where I belonggggggg...." and Tom sings "I think I'm different..." on top. For me, the unreleased track would at least be middle of the pack. Everyone's got their own tastes, though. 2 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
