    Default the six incarnations of gone away

    just thought it would be intresting for you guys if i put up six
    different versions of gone away to discuss.

    1) the ixnay album version we all know and love.

    2) when adam 'atom' willard played the intro of gone away slightly differently.
    its like he fliped it, you'll know what i meen.(live) (sorry cant seem to find it, search its out there somewhere)

    3) pete playing the intro as normal, but repeating it at the end as a slowed
    down finish. (very cool) (live)

    4) dexter playing and singing solo on the piano. (live)

    5) dex playing the piano and singing but then at the bridge of the song the rest of
    the guys come in. (amazing but have only seen it once and can't seem to find it now) (live)

    6) the offspring with emily armstrong. (live)

    Default There's a rare version on YouTube by a theoffspringdj - it actually sounds decent

    I'd love to hear it on acoustic version live. All the other versions the song sounds great (especially) with Emily Armstrong. But still, nothing beats the original version though. Gone Away I dedicate it to my beloved mom.

    This is the closest thing you're going to get to a acoustic version, fake but not too bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PZO3rs7Auw

    My favorite is the one with that Emily lady. I've never been much of a fan of the piano version because it's boring. I love slow songs, but nothing happens in the piano version - it's just straight, simple, repeated chords on the piano, and the basic melody. No harmony, no layers, no other instruments. I just find it boring. But this version with the female vocalist is really nice, and shows just how good of a song Gone Away is. Really beautiful with the harmonies.
