Two versions of this song exist. The most famous one, on Pleased To Meet Me
, starts with a bass line and features horns. The original, found on the Tim
demo sessions, has the guitar starting the song and is about committing suicide. The record company felt that Pleased To Meet Me
, with suicide paean "The Ledge," didn't need any controversy over having two songs about suicide, so the lyrics to this song were altered.
