Default If I Can't Have Your Love

Anyone know why this didn't make Stranger? Or, for that matter, why it wasn't the single? I know it isn't all that si.milar in sound to the rest of the album, but I think it had huge hit potential, and a change up from the guitar led blues rock wouldn't have hurt the album. What a great song, either way.

It is a really nice tune but I just don't think it fitted the style of Stranger. Mind you WGIGO doesn't fit Lost Highway in my opinion but still made it onto the disc.

Back in the Old Old days of Napster I was able to find a Very bady quality demo of the song from the Stranger sessions. It's a lot different than the version that is on the boxed set. It's a full band demo. I haven't listened to it in a long time but I remember it being very similar to One Light Burning as far as the use of Guitars, Drums, Synth, Etc. That may be the reason why Richie chose not to put it in the album.

It was, it's on a bootleg, with the rest of the demos of Stranger In This Town.
