Downloads super rare/FTP


There used to be a downloads for live and super rare stuff.

Specifically really interested in having stuff like Bowling Shoes again, lost a lot of my music and came back on to find the FTP isn't up any longer :(

Does anyone have it?

I had Bowling Shoes too once, but can't find it now.

If anyone can point me in the right direction too I'd appreciate it.

It's definitely pre Taffic and Weather and even pre bsides / rarities compilation, so i'd say around 2003 / 2004. If i'm not mistaken, parts of the lyrics are in the Girl i Cant Forget; so i guess they changed it into that song.

Yeah, they said in the Out of State Plates notes that they used the lyrics to form Girl I can't Forget. I kinda wished they had recorded Bowling Shoes properly as it has a good comedy vibe despite it being about a darker subject.

See what you mean about the lyrics. I also kinda expect to hear california sex laywer after the Ba bada ba ba baah. Anyway good tune and would have loved to have heard a polished band version.

I don't know of the actual history of Bowling Shoes, but I do know they were playing it as early as 2000, as per this setlist:

Bowling Shoes Lyrics
(http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/f/fountains_of_wayne/bowlin...)

Hey now baby don't be shy
I saw you with another guy
He was short but his hair was long
He had your sunglasses on
Ba bada ba ba baah
Ba bada ba ba baah
Picked you up in a German car
He took you out to an Irish bar
You drank bar from a plastic cup
Till you were barely standin up
Ba bada ba ba baah
Ba bada ba ba baah
And now youve got some explaining to do
So come on baby wont you tell me the news
I don't know who you think youre trying to fool
But I know where youve been going so don't bother with the bowling shoes
Tuesday night you were out again
With a bunch of your stoner high school friends
Called me up said you might be late
And you ended up in another state
Ba bada ba ba baah
Ba bada ba ba baah
And now youve got some explaining to do
So come on baby wont you tell me the news
I don't know who you think youre trying to fool
But I know where youve been going so don't bother with the bowling shoes
Bridge
I want a love that will last forever
But it seems like you and me just can't quite get it together
I want a lover I can take for granted
But you give me the blues each time I catch you red-handed
Break
Hey now baby don't you lie
I saw you with another guy
He looked dumb but it sure did smart
When you held his hand and you broke my heart
Ba bada ba ba baah
And now youve got some explaining to do
So come on baby wont you tell me the news
I don't know who you think youre trying to fool
But I
Know where youve been going so don't bother with the bowling
Know where youve been going so don't bother with the bowling
Know where youve been going

The Girl I Can't Forget Lyrics
(http://www.fountainsofwayne.com/music/lyrics.php?id=058)

Well, she picked me up in a German car
And she took me out to an Irish bar
Where I drank some beer in a plastic cup
'Til I had some trouble standing up
And then she drove downtown to a strobe-lit space
Where all the guys wore chains and the thumping bass
Was so intense I could barely feel my face
Then I think I asked her back to my place

But that's all I recall
And when I woke up in the hall
I was alone and softly groaning
And I lost my keys, and I lost my phone, and
I wondered what I did or said
That I might soon regret
It was the night I can't remember
With the girl I can't forget

Well, I was reeling, watching the ceiling spin
The next evening when my friends walked in
And when I asked them if they knew where I'd been
They didn't speak at first; they only grinned
You see, I'm not the type to get in fights
But that might not have been the case last night
Because they heard that I had a word or two
With the man who asked, "Is she with you?"

And if I took it the wrong way
I guess that's not for me to say
Though it seems I may have slipped up
When I offered him some grooming tips
But at least that helps explain
The cuts and bruises on my head
From the night I can't remember
With the girl I can't forget

And it's all coming back now
Don't know how to react now
Guess I'll let it go
I'm not so sure I want to know

Well, I was back at work at 9:15
When a message popped up on my screen
It said, "Pick me up at 8:45
And we can give it one more try"

And now that I'm with her
The whole thing seems a bit absurd
Though she never fails to tell the tale
Of the time she had to post my bail
And for giving me a second chance
I'm forever in her debt
Since the night I can't remember
She's the girl
I will never forget







I don`t remember, I don`t recall
I got no memory of anything at all......

As for California Sex Lawyer, that first appeared in recorded form on the CD "International Pop Overthrow Vol 3", from 2000.

I assume it was also recorded around that time.

Thanks Andy for the Bowling Shoes link.

I guess a similar theme was covered in This Better Be Good. :)
