I'm kinda glad Jon changed the first verses here- It's a bit harder to connect to a line dealing with Vietnam,and I LOVE just older, so it works better for me.

Another example is the HAND demo- it's sound all messed up- cause Jon took the song and changed the lines to how we know it
I personally prefer the end of the demo choures
"it might save your life"
I prefer the first verse of Just Older in the final version and the second verse in the old version.

I didn't like the "It might save your life" line because it just made no sense to me. WHAT might save your life? Saying have a nice day?

Unreleased, unpreviewed, unheard.

standing on a ledge might save your life

as in, it takes being at the absolute end of your rope to get you going again

I like that chorus better, personally. Not a lot, though.

OH. I think I was interpretting it wrong. I always thought it was like saying Have a nice day will get you off the ledge and I just never got that. Okay.

I liked the original vocal of the HAND chorus line better - not much different, but a bit better. Why didn't they just stick to "believe", it would have fit with the new lyrics and kept the original number of sylklables. Oh well. The "a capella" part of the original was GREAT, the new riff is simpler but catchier, and the new solo is also better, even though a Bad Name-ish, classical 80s run-up of the scales at the end would have truely been the cream on the top of it.
And if only they'd combined the best of the two songs into one ultimate version... oh well.
