Lost Songs and Lyrics: The Presently Complete Database
To commemorate what Scottique has coined Cards on the Table Week, please to be enjoying this collection of songs lost to the ether. Theoretically, this list contains every unpublished/unfinished/discarded song currently known of by the fan community. This list does not include alternate cuts of songs that were released (for example, the extended solo mix of "Save it for Later," the extended intro mix of "Authenticity," etc.). This list does include song titles that never never made it past the sketch phase, have been mentioned in passing, seen on old setlists, scrapped and cannibalized into other songs, recorded as demos and thrown away, or are otherwise simply unknown.

Included are notes and quotes for each song where available, as well as whatever lyrics have been publicly revealed to this point. This list was assembled to give a point of easily updatable reference for this material, so that those wanting to find information on them for personal use or conversational relevance would have quick and ready access to them. As a result, there is a little reference redundancy, specifically so that each song listed can be given full context in its own right without having to look elsewhere in the post.

Special thanks must undoubtedly be given to johnnyfootballhero, whom corroborated my information and helped me fill in the blanks. I hope you all find this useful, and hopefully we'll be able to update this further in the future.

* = song is known to have been recorded outside of a live setting, be it a studio recording or home/studio demo

Anna Said*
A-side to a scrapped 7" single, 1994.

AaronH Wrote:That single never came out. It was one of two or three "singles" that we recorded but never released ("Love Bug" was another). "Anna Said" did end up on that old 6-song demo tape, though, didn't it? Maybe it didn't. It was from around the same time.

"Frank Black" was the precursor to "Elvis, I don't Love You Anymore." Very similar to that song in every way.

Both of these songs were from the first bunch of songs we ever wrote, just before the stuff that made it on the demo tape.

Being a Brief Note of Apology*
Released in 2009 as the end of "You Look So Happy."


Busker*
1996 demo, also performed live on KNDD.

sean Wrote:originally intended as the makings of a seven inch single or something, these sessions and songs were a bridge between the coltish promise (if you're generous) of the demo tape and the more upright confidence of the Goodmanson recordings that became Merrymakers. The songs, as I recall, were: Stitches, Busker, Wedlock, Holiday, and, the one that saw the light of day, the original original Carjack Fever. I can't remember whether we also did a version of old hat that weekend or if we wrote that right afterwards.

A Certain Prof

sean Wrote:"A Certain Prof" was a song played at the very first HD show ever, and at a handful of shows thereafter, then abandoned and (justly) forgotten. It did include a Warren Zevon reference, and was sort of about a lit professor Evan and I had at UW who used to regularly disgrace himself to please his students, despite being a brilliant lecturer.

Costellano*

AaronH Wrote:What is "Costellano"?

Cream of Bastards
Predecessor to "Pike St./Park Slope," pre-dates Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?

AaronH Wrote:"Pike St" does date back to around that time. Oddly enough, considering the way it eventually turned out, it started with the bass line. I was listening to a lot of Built to Spill around then, and I came up with this part that seemed like a total ripoff of some BTS song at the time. I'm not sure which one, but that similarity faded as other parts were added, as is usually the case. We tried it out as a straightforward guitar, bass, and drums song for a while, but it didn't seem right. Later we tried another full band version with piano instead of guitar, but that didn't seem like the right thing either. (During this whole time, it was probably only played live twice.) It went back on the back burner for a while until Jeff rearranged the whole thing for piano and cello as we were preparing to make King James Version.

source: http://www.harveydanger.com/phpBB2/viewt...5833#55833
sean Wrote:the line about dues paying that wound up in "Pike St./Park Slope" was actually in another, pre-Merrymakers song that we played for a couple months (around the time of that press release—which I still have copies of, btw)‚ and never recorded. That disused, oft-repurposed song was entitled (you're going to love this), "Cream of Bastards."

Deep Note
Little by Little... discard.


Foot-Controlled Activator*
Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone? discard, also performed live at OK Hotel, May 30, 1996.

AaronH Wrote:Recorded in our practice space and/or live, never released.

source: http://www.harveydanger.com/phpBB2/viewt...5886#55886
sean Wrote:[Foot-Controlled Activator] is hard to reckon without the dense, swirly music that surrounded it. Jeff played a very My Bloody Valentine-esque guitar part over the loud parts, which kicked in after the first "that is what becomes of us," and kept up till the "why you being such a girl" part, then exploded for the rest of the song. We always liked the idea of writing long, sprawling songs and this was probably the first time we ever came close to getting one right. In that sense it was sort of the ur-"Defrocked," but they didn't really sound alike. Also, the words are pretty not-all-the-way-cooked. There's something approximating a dialogue between a man and a woman in there, but I'm not entirely sure I can discern the logical through line. It's hard to be cogent. But in those days, recording always seemed far off, almost unreachable, and so a finished song was always only theoretical. There would always be time to get things right, and if a song didn't survive the playing live process to make it to the finished stage, then that was just musical Darwinism in action.

Foot-Controlled Activator Wrote:Tell me you're not interested
In faking trust and fumbling for connection
With wringing hands
Can we confess the darkest?
Would you even see past the little gestures and doubting who I am?
You're so becoming
Call me when you’re something

Your beautiful boys stop the traffic and bend time
A function of desire, every one
Sometimes I think I'll never want a goddamn thing
Not love or sex or alcohol or fun, fun, fun.
Bullets in the blunderbuss
That is what becomes of us

Don't be my mentor
I don’t need a guide
Don't think I care for the way you run a woman down
We never used to fight
But now it’s all we do
We come to blows over shows we’ve been to
Or haven’t been to
And I was not with you
Bullets in the blunderbuss
That is what becomes of us

In a city of millions
To wake up to find you're one of ten
Was all I ever wanted but no more
So sharpen up your dull, dull blades
And tell me what, what is wit (and where do you find it)?

Why are you being such a girl about it?
That's not fair, see.
Ask me questions that you know I have
No response for

One year down
One year down
It's always nothing
We can talk about it later
It must’ve been something but I can't recall
There must’ve been something but I can't recall
It's always nothing
We can talk about it later
But there's no later
Is there?

Truth collides with fantasy
You’re killing me
Killing me

Frank Black*
B-side to "Anna Said," scrapped 7" single, 1994.

Evan Wrote:Rich, you asked about my fav'rite HD songs. I've been giving that one some thought. The criteria for my selection keeps changing: most fun to play, most fun to listen to, most fun to write, most fun to record... I'd say my signposts go like this: Most innocent fun: Love Bug. Possibly my favorite aural photograph of the band. Most fun to remember: a song Jeff has recorded somewhere called Frank Black, from the same time period.

AaronH Wrote:"Frank Black" and "Elvis" were similar in that they were both sort of odes to people whose music was once great, but was on the decline. And they were both uptempo pop songs. But they were separated by about a decade. Neither of them were our finest creations, but they were fun at the time.

Holiday Wrote:Climb aboard a train on a southern track
Everyone's related and the passengers are in the back
With the cattle, and the luggage, and the babies
And the babies all have rabies

You're going home for holiday
You're going home for holiday

Soon as you get home you'll never be homesick again, you swear
And all your parents' friends are pimping out their homely French au pairs
Rent my room out, put a tie on, walk on eggshells
Cut your finger on the doorbell

You're going home for holiday
You're going home for holiday

I look in the mirror, I catch my own reflection
I can see through myself
I want to write a book about it but I summed it up in a line:
Never thought I'd miss school

You're going home for holiday
You're going home for holiday
You're going home for holiday
You're going home for holiday

Hurried Love & Kisses from Tokyo, Love, Daddy

AaronH Wrote:The last song, a punky/experimental (for us) number called "Hurried Love & Kisses from Tokyo, Love, Daddy," had one of our best titles, but is lost forever--I don't think any record of it exists.

If Irony Was Alcohol I'd Be Blacked Out by Now

AaronH Wrote:"If Irony Was Alcohol" was a different song than "Dining Car." Not sure which came first. I'm pretty sure it was only recorded at home once, with just Jeff and Sean playing. Never played live, or even worked up as a full band song, as far as I remember. It was Sean's best Lou Reed impression.

(I'm) Down With Girlfriends

sean Wrote:we had a lot of trouble sustaining the power of those songs live, which meant that the shorter, sharper songs (carlotta v, terminal annex, helicopter, flagpole) and some of the older ones (crowd pleasers like love bug, scar tissue, and the never recorded star wars song "less than 12 parsecs" and instrument switcheroo number liddsville lunchbox, as well as a couple of abortive power pop tunes with forgotten names—"(i'm) down with girlfriends"—hung around in the set for a long ass time) came in very handy

Sister, my sister, who you lying to?

The second time you dont come home
break your brother's heart

For every fear is what you vanquish
Their laws are not our laws

Take a stranger to the barn
Never know what you take on
Tell me how to love my brother
Family seeks nothing other

I paid the price to take you on
Rock renders loam
Nobility heals well with wine
Some unwashed foot in my mouth pryin' off my jaw

Take a stranger to the barn
Never know what you take on
Tell me how to love my brother
Family seeks nothing other

"The Medley"
Untitled, early "This is the Thrilling Conversation You've Been Waiting For" and "The Same as Being in Love." Performed live at New World Music Theater, May 23, 1998.

sean Wrote:again, it has been a long time... the song was later split and (over)written as "this is the thrilling conversation you've been waiting for" and, more effectively, "the same as being in love."

see, it was a medley of two songs that didn't yet exist. BRILLIANT!!

The Medley Wrote:Maledicta
Time holds its sway
December stalls you, says "that's a laughable way"
Oh, once you've had bad credit, you'll never forget you had it

This extra skin that I carry around
It's not part of me—it's just something I found
Some gorilla had your sister on the ground

Fore!

I tend to forget when I drink
I'm doing it again, I think
A hand to hold
An ego to flatter
Cause you were the wineskin
I was the bladder

Time passes, and events fall away
I don't think they'll hurry up
Hurry up, I'm blacking out
High on the vapor
Cause I was the typo
You were the Liquid Paper

Talk it over
Talk it, overtalk it
The answer's still the same
It's discontent, humiliation
Cause you were the theme and
I was the variation

Try to take a less dramatic
Course of action
This attraction, introspection
Diction, prediction
Breaking my heart again
Breaking my heart

Nervous Breakdown on the Floor-Style
Performed live on KNDD.

sean Wrote:"nrvs" refers to a short-lived, never recorded song called "Nervous Breakdown on the Floor-style" whose lyrics dealt with the love story between Mary Kay LeTourneau and Vili Fuulauu (or however many "u"s go in there)--the female teacher and her teenage lover. it was a very big story here. I assume it got national coverage. I found their story incredibly poignant and wrenching, while the news coverage of it was tawdry and sordid. the best thing that anyone ever wrote or said about it was a piece by Charles D'Ambrosio in the Stranger, later collected in his book "Orphans" (Clear Cut Press--go buy it!).

i was always sad that song never really came all the way together after much early promise. it was modeled somewhat loosely (and ineffectively) on that Failure song "Stuck on You," though it alsoo copped a certain feel from the Low version of Joy Division's "Transmission." the only version that ever existed was when we played it live on KNDD in the morning one time. there may be practice room cassette fragments as well, but it's pretty much gone.

i did later cannibalize some of the words, as i do from time to time.

Nervous Breakdown on the Floor-Style Wrote:A bond this thick is never unstuck
A thousand pages, a finished product
I've had the chance to look things over
I've had this whole place to myself

I see your photograph is face down on the table
I'll turn it over when and if I'm able
They've started closing all your places
They've been removing any traces

They caught me stealing all your glances
It's a crime when you love somebody...

Nervous breakdown on-the-floor-style, Mary, I wish you could've seen it
I will not be your friend or your correspondent
This time I think they mean it

Mary Kay, wasting away, meanwhile I'm staying home on prom night...

...When they finally let me out of here
you'll be old enough for everything
I'll let you buy the beer to celebrate
Will you wait, will you wait
89 months is a long time, you don't have to tell me

The very next time that I see you
you'll be legal, we'll be legal dear
I've had the chance to look things over
I've found their laws are not our laws
A love that dares to speak it's name
cannot be tried in the court of justice, no...

New Joint

AaronH Wrote:Check this out:
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=72...6533693230

Not sure which song we were referring to as "New Joint," but if it was newer than Old Hat and Carjack, it could be something that ended up on Merrymakers.

Poison Tongue
Performed live on KCMU.

AaronH Wrote:There's a studio recording [of Busker] (still pretty rough--the same studio where we did the "demo tape" recordings) and the live on KCMU version.

Incidentally, here's the set list for that live radio show:

All Tomorrow's Parties (Velvet Underground)
Busker
Carjack Fever (original version)
I Ran (Flock of Seagulls)

If I saw through eyes
That believed what they saw
Your faith is like an empty scull

We talk about us
'Til we forget who we are
Our body of work
Is littered with scars
The baggage we brought
Is still in the car
A left-handed compliment
Feather and tar

Decide who's to blame
Then pardon the crime
Unnatural movement
In unbroken line
Deny the denial
Like forcing the rhyme
It won't hurt today
Like stitches in time

She said you always were
Scars obscured by sleeves
Good gardens fight the weeds

Life with you is such an inspiration
purges all my evil memory
calmed and steadied by your warm devotion
ease the fist clenched up inside of me
I'm digging you in the garden
I'm calling you on the phone
This part of me makes me whole

You forget the vows you said
when the heart misleads the head
It seemed like, it seemed like such a good idea

Matrimony is acrimony
temptation fighting two by two
You never told me you were such a phony
don't fight in front of you know who
Gangrene, cut circulation
ring finger severed, flesh and bone
she sure can take a punch, man
she makes a house a home

In my head, in my head
Richer poorer, bitter, bled
In my head, in my head
Yes, I do
Well, you did, too
To have and to hold
as permanent as snow

You shouldn't lie to her
She never knew you were

It was "You Look So Happy." Sean said in an interview it was edited down and retitled.

At least, I think so. He mentioned it in an interview four years ago.

Yeah, "Being a Brief Note of Apology" isn't really anything in itself. It's just the end of "You Look So Happy," which we clipped of at some point because we thought it was a shame to let that cool part go to waste once we scrapped that song. Where did that bit end up? On Jeff's rarities CD?

You boys are too clever!

Possibly worth noting: I don't know where the title "If Irony Was Alcohol I'd Be Blacked Out by Now" comes from, but that line is a variation on the end of "Dining Car" ("...and if irony was alcohol, I'd black out from a shot of you"). Is it possible that this was an alternate title to "Dining Car?"

I feel out of my league here, but pending the band answering: I believe "If Irony Was Alcohol I'd Be Blacked Out by Now" was a different song that debuted soon after "Dining Car" left the live set forever.

Incidentally, if I have stumbled upon sacred burial grounds, I am happy not to go on talking about this stuff. Excited we are, but weirded out. I feel like the first five years of the band are this secret between the band and two lurkers, and I do not want to disrespect that. Although I would donate either kidney just to hear "Wedlock."

I second every word of this. If any member of the band wants any part of this (or its entirety) pulled, or not talked about, let us know. A lot of why I went through with posting it in the first place was because of the massive outpouring of previously unknown information from Aaron and Sean, from lyrics to "Holiday," "Wedlock," and "Foot-Controlled Activator," to Sean's discussing "A Certain Prof." It seemed like the time to document it. If it's not, that can be fixed.

Personally, I think it's fun to read all this stuff. With the new song coming out, etc., it seems appropriate to look back at the old days.

As far as that list goes, it looks very complete. There are few things on there I wouldn't really consider "songs" (Costellano: unfinished song idea caught on tape, which nobody seems to even remember playing; Deep Note: no idea what that was; High-Tension Wires; abandoned pretty early in its development), and there are others that are lost to the ages.

"If Irony Was Alcohol" was a different song than "Dining Car." Not sure which came first. I'm pretty sure it was only recorded at home once, with just Jeff and Sean playing. Never played live, or even worked up as a full band song, as far as I remember. It was Sean's best Lou Reed impression.

I'm working on a couple lists of my own, which will hopefully be archived in the website in the near future.

For now, I'm off to Ireland and Scotland for vacation. Anybody know any good places to go?

That's a bit of relief to hear, and probably one of the main reasons we put the list together. It's still really weird to think of Harvey Danger as a done deal, and I think looking back through a lot of this is a way of "coping," for lack of a better (and less negative) word.

I am intrigued.

I've never left the states, myself, but I hope you have a fantastic trip Smile Thanks again, Aaron.

Quote:i was always sad that song never really came all the way together after much early promise. it was modeled somewhat loosely (and ineffectively) on that Failure song "Stuck on You," though it alsoo copped a certain feel from the Low version of Joy Division's "Transmission." the only version that ever existed was when we played it live on KNDD in the morning one time. there may be practice room cassette fragments as well, but it's pretty much gone.

so. Given that failure is one of my favorite bands, is there anywhere to hear this song?

I'm sorry to say I doubt it. They never recorded it in studio. Practice room cassettes maybe, or if someone in the universe has the KNDD live recording are probably your only bet.
