old chapel song #3
Music: Simple Minds
© EMI Music Publishing
This was third instrumental demo on Simple Minds' Old Chapel Tape
which was recorded in January-February 1983 as preparatory work for Sparkle In The Rain.
It wasn't given a name.
This track is driven by guitar and bass and lacks the distinctive "drum machine" of the other
demos. The synths come to the fore during the chrous which is clearly the chorus of
All The Things She Said.
Therefore it could viewed as the demo version of this song.
The song wasn't recorded for Sparkle In The Rain and
wasn't worked on during the initial recording sessions for Once Upon A Time.
This suggests it was shelved until extra material was required for Once Upon A Time
during the formal album recording in July 1985.
This officially recorded demo hasn't been released in any form. Unfortunately the recording cuts off near the end as
the song begins to fade.
