i often feel like a lot of her unreleased songs are just other ‘versions’ or ‘reboots’ of the songs that did make the cut…like she’ll make a couple songs out of the same idea and pick the one she likes best
Sad Girl/Your Girl, Ultraviolence/Cult Leader, Off to the Races/Heavy Hitter, Blue Jeans/TV in Black and White, Religion/Crazy for You, etc….
obviously they’re not direct correlations BUT (in my head) a lot of her unreleased songs have a sister song that DID make the album. I can see why certain songs got cut because they’re basically the same as others. She wanted to write a song about _______ so she came up with a couple and picked/refined her favorite one.
