Thanks chiliD, much appreciated! Looks like some of the best GOS songs made it on there, although it does make one wonder how many outstanding "leftovers" there are in the vaults. Any idea how many songs were actually recorded for the album (especially since it was talked of being a double Cd at one time)? Aside from that, I can't wait for the tour to start!

John,

It's been stated by trustworthy sources, that the band submitted 23 finished songs to Warner/Reprise, when recording was completed on the album.

So apparently there are five "leftovers"... and we're all hoping they surface in some capicity, within the next few months.

Yea, and I reckon that probably at least 10 more were not even submitted, but nevertheless fully completed in the studio (i.e. both LB and SN songs). I really hope that these "leftovers" surface either as B sides, or on future LB or SN solo albums......or.....perhaps.....the next Fleetwood Mac album.

Sky, are you sure about "sons?" I saw that on Mick's board originally and just assumed that it was a typo. Reason is that "exploding sons" is a particularly violent and unnecessary image. However, "exploding suns" is part of the lexicon. And as I have discussed in another thread, I believe this song is about war and peace, and that Lindsey was using the missile "Peacekeeper" as inspiration for the sardonic tone of the song. Of course, that is strictly an interpretation independent of any knowledge of what was going on in Lindsey's mind when he wrote the thing.

Maybe he will tell us one of these days.

Sugar, a couple of weeks ago I posted the lyrics in a thread called "Psst... Look what I stole" in the Rumours board.

Cool Sons!

CarneVaca!
We feel that Lindsey wrote this after he became
a Father and was surprised by his great LOVE for
his precious new SON! He wrote a straight forward
song about how ...All sons are made the same...if
the peacekeeper tells lies... they all die the same!
LOVE is the Sweet Surprise!{Good Song Title LB!}

Re: Oaklahoma City and tension in the world since
many sons and daughters died in the Trade Towers
bombing! Lindsey made a statement he was scared!

You can isolate the original song before he mucked
it up with that horrible killing stuff for a hard edge!!!

Oh dear...Sorry! Iam ranting and raving! We just Pray
our precious sons and daughters will not have to die!
Or any of you as tension grows in our tenuous world!

The lyric is definitely "sons," not "suns"- it's rather brutal imagery, but "suns" doesn't fit- "we make all of our sons the same" does not work with "suns"- and the word "sons" is continued throughout the lyrics.

The song is about war, it's a bloody, evocative song to me. This song predates September 11th, of course, but I've always gotten the impression that Lindsey was impacted (although minorly, since he was rich-lol) by the Vietnam war, and I think this song in some way plays into that conflict. The "explodes" line has simply always struck me as his particular choice of words to describe the absolute wastefulness of the loss of human lives associated with war.

I think it's great to see him writing such great lyrics- although I'm not a fan of "Murrow" it's nice to see him writing so well, lyrically. The songs on OOTC were, to me, his first step in attempting to write actual "real" emotional lyrics, as opposed to the fairly general lyrics he wrote for so long, lyrics that were there to simply to serve the music of the song.

Hello - I have read these posts with interest for many years and, considering the new record and all, have jumped into the game.

I, too, wish LB would release another solo record and greatly look forward to him doing so. However, I also wish he would just release the completed songs and not take five years to do so. I mean, bless his heart, he has been working (constantly?) on some of these songs apparently for over ten years. Moreover, from the releases of GOS on the web, they all sounded finished to my untrained ear. But then again, the man's a genius and I am not. So, after saying my peace (keeper ) I will wait :[

So you think the lyrics to "I'm So Afraid", "Go Your Own Way", "Save Me A Place" (I could name many more) were written to serve the music of the song?

I'd say so for the first two. But I'd find it hard to believe he thought up a generic three chord acoustic pattern before the lyrics for Save Me A Place.
