Sophie rarities

Sophie has been around in the music scene for a decade now, and there's tons of new fans that she has now. So i was thinking of sharing some of these rare studio demos and alternate versions with the world, its not going to affect sales in any way, so might as well do it...

Murder On The Dancefloor (Original Demo Version) - I like this version of the song. You can see that Jewel & Stone built their mix around this version of the song. Its not the typical dance track that the original sounds like. Its got a catchy groove, and is very very bassy!! But i'm happy that they changed the song before it made it onto the album. This would sound weird on Read My Lips

Final Move (Original Demo Version) - After you listen to this, you'll think "is this a demo!?" Well, at least that was my first reaction. I prefer this to the original. This is a bassy power ballad, which is so well produced. I wonder why Sophie didn't like this version and chose the louder album brash version instead. This song has a more emotional appeal than the album version.

Love It Is Love (Sampler Version) - This version didn't make it onto the album because of the obvious difference in the sound. Its a whole lot dancier than the original, a foot thomper! The lyrics are different in this version as well. Its got a driving groove, which puts you into a trance and the guitar sampler which is looped in the song catches your attention. Sophie's vocals sound very echo-y. This song was supposed to be a single, if it was, i'm sure this version would have been played on the radios more than the orignal.

Party In My Head (Sampler Version) - I've already given my views about this in the previous psot. Its a charming track!! And i love it!!

Lover (Demo Version) - Its very very rough. I prefer the bassy album version to this.

Is It Any Wonder (Produced by Moby) - Or famously known as the "Moby Mix" is just a vocal and background track demo. When RML was still being made, there was a whole lot of hype that Sophie had reeled in Moby to produce one of her tracks. Here's the demo they made together. Its pretty much the same as the album version, except, Sophie sounds like she just woke up and ran to the studio... lol..
