Does anybody here have it? I'm curious to what those versions of the songs sounded like.

I have, according to Dexter, a demo version of Pretty Fly that I love so much more than the album version. He said it was sent to radio accidentally but pulled back a few hours after discovery and wondered if that version made the EP.

But yeah if anyone has it, please let me know as I cannot find it :)

I would if that's approved... Every now and then I find a board that is VERY against that *cough*FooFighters*cough*

The changes in this PF(FaWG) is all in the chorus, but yeah if it's cool, I will.

I think none of us will be against it. I suppose the moderators won't be against it, either. I mean, they haven't said anything about people uploading singles, and unreleased tracks. They can't possibly say anything about uploading a demo.

Although i can't personally speak for the mods, i really doubt they'll have a problem with this. People upload similar stuff all the time without hassle.

I have the EP and from what I can tell nothing is really different from the album versions of the songs except for The Kids Aren't Alright. In the EP version it says "Jamie had a chance, well she really did
Instead she got fat and had a couple of kids" Instead of "Jamie had a chance, well she really did Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids". I just call it TKAA (Alternate version).

Upload the demo!

The demo is the single version of Pretty Fly, it's on my upload, Pretty fly (CD 2).

And TKAA (Fat Version) is there too, TKAA (CD 2)

See the link on my sig.

We've got nothing against that, so go ahead.

Why does he have to upload it again if it's already uploaded on offspringbootlegs?

And though hotlinking is not allowed, here are the exact links to the folders:

It wasn't on the Single #2 as I have both versions of almost all singles from Americana.

But yes the link is to the right one... For those who just wanna know the difference, here's the demo's chorus:

So don't debate cuz he's a player straight
And maybe you know he really doesn't get it anyway
He's gonna play the field, he's gonna keep it real
But not for you no way, for you no way
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate
At least you know you can always go on Ricky Lake
The world loves wannabes so come on and do that brand new thing!

Basically the pauses are gone like the Ricky line and no hey hey in the final line. Makes the song stronger, in my opinion lol

Yeah, I know it wasn't on CD2, but I needed to place it somewhere. So I placed it there.

hm are you sure that version of tkaa is from a piece of america? i owned a couple and they were all the same as the album tracks. tkaa fat version was from americana sampler (4 single tracks + pay the man) rather than a piece of americana (4 single tracks + feelings [or one some, walla walla?])

yeah, it's discussed in earlier topics before. I can't check it, because my Piece of Americana EP is still sealed!

The versions of songs on Piece of Americana are exactly the same.
