Default "Comfortable"?

I have been collecting everything I could get my hands on over the years, and the one thing that I have not been able to find is a song I have read about on a couple occasions called "Comfortable" that a demo was supposedly made of back when William Goldsmith was in the band. Has anyone ever heard this or heard of this?

I remember back in 2000 it was discussed, however no known recording exists. The song may have turned into a song on tcats or tinltl, only Dave would know.

Default Re: "Comfortable"?

The very first time I'd heard the title was when the band went into Bob Lang's to record Down In the Park for the X-Files soundtrack and some new material in January 1996. I was told the band was recording Enough Space, Butterflies, I'm Alone Again, My Hero, Down In the Park, and Comfortable. When I finally got a copy of the session and Comfortable wasn't on it, I shot off an email to my source and asked her what happened to the song. At first she seemed confused like she didn't know what I was talking about (which is odd considering she's the one I got the info from) but then she told me that if they attempted the song during that session, they didn't finish it.

It was years later that Tym finally confirmed the song existed after I posted speculation that Over and Out was Comfortable. ("Restless little one, comfortable and warm...") It turns out Comfortable did exist and that it wasn't Over and Out, and, as someone already mentioned, Tym said it was pretty forgettable.
