Sample Essay

Can’t Take my Eyes Off You by Lauryn Hill

This was an alternate version to the song Can’t Take My Eyes Off You sung by Frankie Valli in 1967 and could be easily regarded as more famous the original. It was used as a soundtrack for Conspiracy Theatre and Heath Ledger’s performance of it in 10 things I hate About You only boosted its fame further worldwide.

Endless, Nameless by Nirvana

Part of the second studio album by Nirvana in 1991 entitled Nevermind, this song only featured on some copies after the last song as a secret track. It was initially omitted from the album by mistake but when the mistake was discovered, a long silence was introduced after the last song Something in the Way after which Endless, Nameless made its appearance.

Track 28: Belgium by Bowling for Soup

This song does not even get noticed by some CD players. Part of the album Drunk Enough to Dance released in 2002, the song is an acoustic version of the original and is placed at the very end of the album, along with being part of the initial release as well.

Time to Break Up by Blink 182

Blink 182’s rise to fame did include some unlisted tracks such as this one, as part of the album Take Off Your Pants and Jacket released in 2001. The American band’s pun does not go as unnoticed as they might think, and although not the most family oriented album out there, it certainly earned its keep when the album went double platinum in the U.S.

All By Myself by Green Day

Another hidden song that was hidden for good reason, “All By Myself” sees itself getting away with more than just the prying eyes of the censor board. Released as part of the album Dookie in 1994, it was a step away from Green Day’s usual style of music but still serves as a great last track (Akhtar, 2001).

Cashing In by Minor Threat

One of the lesser known bands out there, Minor Threats gained fame in the 80s with this album Out Of Step, released in 1983. The last song prolongs long enough for a new tune to kick in and headstrong lyrics to follow. This song is certainly not for the fainthearted.

Opiate by Tool

The progressive metal band introduced six tracked EP (Extended Play) preceding their album Undertow. It is an example of double grooving and contained a hidden track The Gaping Lotus Experience which roused quite a bit of fan fare as it was part of an early release by Tool, which had only performed professionally for a couple of years.
