Have A Nice Day Demo
 
Just heard it for first time and prefer it to final version and I'm the same with Someday I'll Be Saturday Night wish he never changed the lyrics.

Also are there any more B-Sides from the album Have A Nice Day besides Nothing, Dirty Little Secret and Unbreakable?
How about The Circle B-Sides too?

Thanks

The I Want To Be Loved demo version was better.

Typical Bon Jovi bullshit. Better versions of songs, or just better songs in general, but only shit quality available. Life must be so much better for bands who really care about their fans. Dave Matthews, Pearl Jam. I don't like either of them, but they give fans what they want. Jon does one thing (New Jersey Special Edition), it doesn't sell 10 million copies, and he decides to axe the rest.

Did he say that somewhere or is it just an assumption? That's an honest question, btw, not meant as a challenge your comment. I just wondered if that why we didn't get others yet.

Thanks for asking. I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't heard him say that or read it in an interview anywhere.

I'm just guessing. I really don't know.

Is there an actual demo Cd of HAND that those songs are on?

Javier 08-09-2015 02:02 AM

These aren't demoes though, it's just an earlier mix of the album that was made available and somehow leaked in kind of a muddled quality. Most of them can be found on youtube....

So you're just at mad at him based on an assumption. Do you think Jon is the one that put them out? It's a label thing, not a band thing.

Only real fans would be interested in deluxe versions. I have loads of mates who love Jovi but never bothered with deluxe versions and thats not good news for record companies.

Id be interested to see how many copies it sold and also other bands rehashed deluxe versions sold. Not many I bet

Bounce7800 08-09-2015 10:22 AM

Deluxe editions, and even CDs in general, are fast becoming a thing of the past to be honest. New generations simply download everything. If there's stuff to come, just releasing it to download would be a cost effective way to please the fans and make some money, especially as there is no cost of pressing the physical format or covers/photos etc..

The HAND demoes weren't meant for public consumption anyhow though as it was an earlier version of the album. Although knowing what they have it would be nice if they released B-side/demo collections online.

Savvi 08-09-2015 12:37 PM

I prefer the album version of IWTBL, rather than the demo. The final version is worded better. The wording of the demo version make it sound cheesy.

I like the little acoustic bit in the HAND demo, but I think it may have been overkill had they left in the final. I don't mind either.

Agreed on both points!

The acoustic breakdown in the HAND demo is really nice, but the final version has a better riff and solo. Lyrics I don't remember too much. Might have been better.

"I'm gonna live, do more than survive" > "I'm gonna live, I'm gonna survive".

It switched the focus of the blame as well. The album version was "I had a roof over head, shoes on my feet" etc while it was originally "YOU put a roof overhead, shoes on my feet".

Alphavictim 08-09-2015 05:17 PM

Was there ever an earlier version of I Am floating around? I really like that song.

I agree 100% with you. They could release demos online like they did with Gimme Some and Do It To Ya and every die hard fan would be happy, I know I'd be. I'm not expecting them to release every single song they did but they could release a whole bunch of them which they have in high quality like the HAND demos, Sex Sells demos etc.

I just don't get why Jon doesn't do this. If I were in his shoes I'd be very happy to repay the die hard fans.

Nope, as far as I remember it was exactly the same as the original version.

How they released the Bitter Wine demo? They could arrange something like that to release more songs.

I remember when it came out in 2004 with a service called AXS. It was like...I want to say $10 a year and more demos would come. I know we got Gimme Some and an additional BJ TV about the making of the box set. Soon after the whole thing imploded and everyone was refunded. I'm not sure if it was a third party site that did this or the band pulled the plug.

I think they really should put them on a service for however many dollars. Piracy isn't that big of an issue for things like this. If the alternative are the songs are just going to sit there then why not? Maybe it's more trouble than it's worth for them with royalties.
