Alternate Versions

I spent most of all my Christmas Eve (fifteen hours, start to end) wrapping this one up for you. This podcast includes as much alternate versions of songs as I could squeeze in an almost a 2.5 hour podcast! It’s a fun listen! Check out the playlist after, so you don’t spoil the ride. Enjoy and thank you!

  1. So Glad I stumbled across this, for 3 years I’ve been working from home , so been listening to Spotify – Bowie , Marillion , Radiohead , doors , floyd etc , back in February, thought I’d listen to all 15 Studio albums , back to back , in Chronological order , and that’s all I do now ( alongside working of Course ) 5 albums a day , constantly , Monday to Friday , unhealthily obsessed , helps me concentrate – now I ‘ve discovered this , excellent . one Day I’ll remember other artists exist

  2. Hello Doc.
    I wish you could dedicate a Podcast to the “SINGLE VERSIONS”.
    US & UK SINGLES plus some rare international, all in chronological order, first the band and then the members, all properly doctored and with your comments on the differences between the album track and the single version.

    Thanks for your hard work on the shows and the incredible material.

    Diego.

    • I did exactly that when this podcast was a radio show a very long time ago and it’s been something I’ve often thought about doing again for the podcast.

      • Hi Doc
        Those are the lyrics i found , which does not mean they have been recorded.
        Quite interesting.

        All the best for 2021

        Verse 5]
        And if I were a Muslim
        And you were a Jew
        If I were a Mennonite
        And you were an Hindu
        Would we exchange
        The weight of these chains
        Chains of belief
        And the carnage on the trains to turn over a new leaf

        [Verse 6]
        If I had been god
        I would not have chosen anyone
        I would have laid an even hand
        On all my children everyone
        Would have been content
        To forgo Ramadan and Lent
        Time better spent
        In the company of friends
        Breaking bread and mending nets

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus ]
        There were ten in the pool
        Some black some white
        One yellow one drown
        Then it was nine

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 2]
        There were nine in the pool
        The gamble laid
        And Cain killed Abel
        And then here was eight

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 3]
        Eight different stairways
        All leading to heaven
        And the fox got the chicken
        And then there was seven

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 4]
        Seven women all taking
        Their kids to the Styx
        One slipped on a stone
        And then there were six

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 5]
        Six pilgrims went under
        To get baptized
        One never come up
        And then there was five

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Hallelujah
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 6]
        Now five is a number
        That spanks of the devil
        One took his own life to
        Keep things level

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Thank you brother
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 7]
        With four you can make up
        Two tag teams
        Ding dong seconds gone
        And then there were three

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Yeah, splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 8]
        Three fish in a pool
        As a general rule
        Is one two many
        And the there were two

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Pre-Chorus 9]
        There were two in the bed
        And the little-one said roll over
        You’re dead
        Splish splash hallelujah
        You’re dead
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Verse 7]
        The champion sits on his golden throne
        In his echoing empty magnificent home
        Looking out over the field of bones
        The last one standing stands alone

        [Chorus]
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah
        Splish splash hallelujah

        [Verse 8]
        The champion sits on his golden throne
        In his echoing empty magnificent home
        Looking out over the field of bones
        The last one standing stands alone
        Lay down

          • Hi all, late to the party but those lyrics are from the live performance Roger made with G.E. Smith something like 5 years ago, in a theatre. No official recordings but a few audio or video clips were posted here or there.

  7. Great job Doc! Always a good day to have a new podcast from you, especially this Christmas. Keep on keeping on and stay safe out there!

  8. Wow, Raving and Drooling! I love to hear every single instrument like for example in the Wish you were here-dts-version or echoes-quadro. I find this early version of Raving and Drooling much better better than the original version. Thank you, Doc, for the effort. For everyone in 2021: …stay healthy (and clean)!
