YES immediately heard the I Should Have Known chords, too.

Good song. I like it

The one thing that lets me know it's definitely from the C&G era is the muffled sound quality.

*edit ... again, referring to my own argument way back. Any isolated track, not on the regular release, so as not to have to refer to them as "isolated tracks not on the standard release" can be referred to simply as a "b-side" (yes, i am aware of the technicality).
I know this is an age old argument that doesn't really matter but for me, to call a song a B-Side it needs an A-Side. Yes, once we got CD singles they weren't sides any more but you still had the single as the A-Side, then the other tracks were B-Sides.

It doesn't seem right to therefore call a totally isolated track a B-Side to me. Personally I would just call this a non-album track, but I suppose it's not as catchy.

My own collection though with all these songs in I just called 'B-Sides & Others', little catchier.

I think it's a good tune. Only listened once, but felt like Daves voice was lost against the music? cool way to release!

I think that's what makes it good, his voice sounds great in a more mellow vibe like in this track, has an early Foos vibe which I like.

loved this song so damn much it makes me wonder why the hell C&G wasn't 12 tracks long with this included, a great album would be made even greater just by adding this one song. feels like they do b-sides and "misc" sometimes better than a lot of the main ones, immediately I have Walking a Line, Normal, Better Off, Fraternity, Make a Bet/Win or Lose come to mind.

True! I suppose it's down to personal taste.. my fave Foo songs aren't the mellow ones really. but I've not given it a proper chance yet, only one listen.

Agree with your last point, A320 might be my fav Foo song. And Walking a Like, The Sign, and World stand out for me as well.

absolutely, A320 and World are some of my favorites as well, it's a really long list for songs that were supposedly left out of main releases or made for different projects.

Listening again right now, 3rd time through in total.
Definitely a grower for me but I can personally see why it may have been left off of C&G.

I like a lot of the ‘B Sides’ but this isn’t the best for me.
I love Walking A Line, Fraternity, Normal, TCATS, The One and I’m sure there’s more...

I’m more a fan of the heavier ‘screamy Dave’ songs so this is way I don’t love it right off the bat.

I'm 100% sure this is a demo, the vocals are unprocessed and slightly out of tune in places, sounds different to the finished C&G in many ways, the guitars are way different, the arrangement seems unfinished..

Great song!

Just downloaded it off iTunes. Digging it so far. Definitely feeling the nostalgic vibe and the chorus and chord progression hits the feels a bit, haha.

I pre-ordered the box set, so I got the digital files already.

Really loving the box set in total.

But, of course, Soldier is the stand-out track for me here.

Really liking it. And although I am not a fan of referencing other songs, my first reaction was.....Heroes by David Bowie.....

The way the song comes to life. The e-bow beginning, and even the beat. It's all there.

But still. Loving the feel of the song. It's really something else.

It's going right in my "B-Sides" list

Not loving this one. I put it in the World category, it's okay but not album-worthy. The subtle guitar solos are nice enough, just overall not a strong song, imo.

Can't get enough of how the chorus glides downward instead of upward or repeating. Makes sense?

I love this song.

Wow! I'm not saying that Soldier is one of their best songs or anything, but listening to it made me very happy! I feel like it's 1999 and I'm listening to TINLTL for the first time.

Does anyone find it A LOT similar to Live-in Skin?
