Not a problem. To be fair, i included the Dreamscapes tracks as well since I count those as being "unreleased" since they weren't necessarily released in a proper way (a mainstream album, I mean).

I think a majority of the ones I listed aren't completed and fleshed out. I'd argue at least a few of them are just lyrics.

Wow, that's a lot of online sleuthing!
But if DS aren't considered proper albums (the collection was even fully available on iTunes for a while), then Marian's solo albums and CS would have to be considered unreleased material too.



As a side note:
That's All has a version with lyrics released on Atlantic Popes' album.
Twelve Years was released on Marian's So Long Celeste, as Sweet Needles of Success.

That's still a long list of songs we haven't heard. Interesting job you've done there gathering them all.


By the way, Because of You is on DS.
And for your exhaustive notes: Love Will Find a Way has an official release in German, on Karel Gott's album Leben (2009), as Weil Die Hoffnung Nie Vergeht. (My favourite, by the way.)

I was surprised to find a few names of songs on the list that I thought no one knew abot, like HOTEL and HAPPY. Others on the list are not existing, like RAMA LAMA DING DONG (at least not from Alphaville/Gold).
The term „rejected“ is misleading or not matching the reasons for not being published yet in many (most) cases, I would drop that.
From my POV the list is quite interesting, but still quite foggy ;-)

haha I had scoured around here (and your blog) to try and find every possible song name. Rama Lama was a name I saw on some old 2011 Strange Attractor promo (it's a nod towards the Beach Boys 'Pet Sounds' album cover) and there were quite a few names for songs there. I had also read a few songs on that list were actually jokes. haha I thought maybe that one was a joke, though I added it just in case but have now removed it.

As for adding "rejected" to the end of the song titles: I only did that after thinking about the dates in which they were recorded and how Marian has occasionally said how some songs simply didn't stylistically fit the album / didn't flow well. i could remove it from the tracks which I know for a fact were meant to be on albums if you'd like.

The one that interests me at the moment is "Day of the Minotaur". Interesting title... I think it probably has a gritty rock feel, similar to Nevermore.

Every so often, some of these demos and other tracks are found online, a few live, but mostly studio recordings. Some were available elsewhere, like back when the Moonbase had certain ones for downloading, but one is led to wonder just where else they found these other ones!
