The second of the three lost demos posted by SER on YouTube is this Morrissey/Tobias composition. (From when - do we know for sure?)
What do we think of this one?
theres two or three songs in there,cant quite place them.I'm liking these demos more on a 2nd listen. This one feels a bit more formed than "Saturday." If this is what's being discarded... I hope it's a sign of the quality to come (if we ever get another album that is). There are parts of this song that remind me of another solo song... but can't quite put my finger on it... anyone else hearing it? Right now, it's my fave of the Lost demos. I agree with @This Charming Bowie - a proper recording of this would be a nice addition to the solo catalog.

Yeah this one’s very good, especially lyrically far more interesting than ‘If Saturday’ though it’s melody reminds me of a couple other past songs of his. With some work on the music, this one should have been released.
Lyrically, of the 3, it’s something to sink one’s teeth into. Someone called it ‘misogynistic’, I could understand their surface reading of it, but it’s a little more complicated than that, or maybe simpler than that. Though, we must admit who else in popular music would put it the way he has and here again does?
We could only assume he still feels (ill) that it’s necessary and of importance that these words, this experience, should exist in the form of a song, and a song like this should exist in this world. Before it was hidden behind poesy, now, he doesn’t give a f**ck and is just laying it out, with no one getting laid.
So long ago, and yet ....
He was nervous & didn't expect such direct questions, he says (at the end) the interview was "sweaty." He still does it or pushes his tongue to his cheeks etc when he is uncomfortable.Why did Moz keep slopping his tongue round his mouth in that interview, like a cow chewing a cud? It's creepy and off-putting.
