I hear a difference in the male vocals on each example of the song. The singing style and the tone of the voice sounds different to me. Are both of these versions Ben Moody singing? Does any one know.?
Demo song from Origin, can anyone see why the video is labeled RARE?
Kinda strange, just sounds like it normally does. 2:02 - 2:03 track time seems the same.
Nothing jumps out at me immediately. I'm wondering if they just mean rare because it was from Origin. Although you can get bootlegs everywhere now and the tracks are freely available from Evref and elsewhere (not to mention the deluxe boxset release), I guess you could still argue that anything that was on Origin other than My Immortal was a relatively 'rare' release in the sense that it wasn't released under a major label and the Fallen version of Imaginary is the more well known?
The quotations raise eyebrows but I can't help feeling that this is mostly a convenient title to help get the video views where the publisher may not have been aware that it was from Origin. I could easily be wrong though.
I doubt it was for views, with so many videos already on YouTube. Maybe, the original demo album actually is even more extremely rare (with all the bootlegs) then everyone thinks.
Users upload things to YouTube as "rare" even if it isnt since they've simply haven't heard it before or think they can get the word out about this unheard song. They could have labeled it "rare" since the backing vocals can be heard a little better on this upload than on others uploaded to YouTube.
As far as your reference to the "original demo album"... Are you referring to Origin? If so, there were only 2500 copies produced. So yes, finding an authentic Origin is quite rare.

As most of us probably know, Amy performed a new piano version of Even in Death at the Florida shows. I was wondering: does anyone else think there's a possibility Amy has re-recorded Even in Death, or any other pre-Fallen material? During the Facebook Q&A this past March, Amy hinted she was doing some work with some older material. It's like, what made her want to play Even in Death in the first place? Was it purely related to Prince's death? Maybe she had this version of EiD stored away (maybe recently recorded), and Prince's death was a good time to introduce that version? Keep in mind, Amy played Going to California live first and then released an official recording after.
I'm curious as to what the legal implications of releasing older material would be. That material isn't owned by any record label, but surely she would have to give some credit to Ben Moody and David Hodges or maybe even get some sort of permission before releasing anything? Awkward! I would imagine she could bypass that hairy mess by releasing any old material as a "cover."
If we get a new version of EiD, I'd be happy for the rest of 2016. I Absolutely LOVE the piano version of Even in Death.
Thoughts anyone? Lol this is all pure speculation on my part.
Ben Moody is not a real person. He was one of the 4 made up names pre-Fallen to explain the other band members. The music is really all her's, and the reason she got rid of "Moody" was because everyone wants to pretend that a man wrote it. Why do people demean women so? Why can't you accept a woman wrote it? By herself?
