TSOTLOTM Additional Tracks/B-Sides
« on: September 18, 2012, 02:50:26 AM »
I found a tracklist of the Japanese bonus-version of TSOTLOTM. The bonus tracks are "Tell me what I did", "Stumblin' home winter blues" and a version of "Thank you for breaking my heart" by Ben Folds without the Five - maybe a demo version?

Wonder if the guys recorded more than 10 Tracks during the album sessions. When Ben says they had rough ideas for about 2 more Albums (*), I thought there would be at least 1-2 more actual songs recorded to be released as bonus tracks. Does anyone know anything?

They recorded at least one more song that got cut because Ben stated "it sucked."

they recorded a song in japanese - my guess is that is thank you for breaking my heart. the fact that all 3 of the bonus tracks are listed only as ben has to be an error, because i doubt he also did solo versions of those reunion songs as well. so it looks like there's only one proper bonus track so far on anything.

As I've posted here before, TSOTLOTM Japanese Edition includes 3 bonus tracks : "Tell Me What I Did", "Stumblin' Home Winter Blues" and "Thank You For Breaking My Heart (Japanese Version)". Ben has also tweeted that he recorded a song in Japanese.

According to Sony Music Online Japan, all three bonus tracks are credited as by Ben Folds Five.

The Japanese lyrics of "Thank You for Breaking My Heart" is more touching than the original. Great.

Excellent, thank you for posting!
Did we ever find out if the Japanese CD came with lyrics?  :D

Yes! A CD with 28 pages booklet, no pledgers list. It includes all lyrics, except for "Thank You for Breaking My Heart" Japanese version.
However, those lyrics are NOT checked by BFF.

I can imagine requests for pics of the other pages of the booklet or a full transcription.
A one-hit wonder with no hits...

Hey, that's Oh-Ned-Er!

I've spotted a mistake already.
