Are You Gonna Wait Forever
« on: October 09, 2017, 12:37:51 AM »
Do people like this song?  A lot of attention goes to Fast Cars, Native Son, Xanax, Mercy, etc when it comes to the Bomb outtakes.  But what about this one?  I love the guitar riff.  The only thing that bugs me about it is the lingering siren affect.  It's a nice counterpoint to the up tempo drive, but it becomes an anchor.  Other thoughts?

It's one of my favorite b-sides of all time.  Great lyric.

Yes, completely. I do not know why some songs did not get to the album but ended up as b-sides. For example, Holy Joe, LWTSH, TSOHOSOS, Summer rain, BGAB and the like. I hope that the b-sides album will come out in time. I'm lazy to burn them on CD :)

I REALLY enjoy this song. I wish it had made HTDAAB instead of just being a B-side.

I would have loved to hear them release an entire additional album made up of HTDAAB and the Rick Rubin session outtakes. Would have been around 2006/07.

Love Xanax/fast cars, Wait Forever, etc. Also think Holy Joe would have fit well with that idea. Hard Hitting 3 minute songs.

a lot of the aforementioned b sides are superior to some of the dross the band are producing now...sorry if a bit off topic
