Hi,

I hope im posting this in the right section.

Just wanted to create a thread that comprises of various youtube links with rare performances or alternative versions of the classic Erasure songs.

I found this rare version of Fingers and Thumbs, sounds more like a demo version.

This version was done for the Wigstock Soundtrack, it has a different feel to the album version.

I love this behind the scenes video of the Wild Tour! Also the remix is pretty good too:

Not technically true.  It's simply called Cold Summer's Day, never "demo".  It was obviously too good a song to be forgotten on a soundtrack for a movie no one ever saw, and was given a makeover for the Erasure self-titled album with slightly altered lyrics and a new name: Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day).  I suspect this was done because there weren't a lot of radio-friendly tracks on Erasure.

I remember this all quite clearly because in my younger college years, I stupidly but intentionally wrote a hot check for that awful Wigstock CD, just to have that one new track by my favorite band!

I actually saw the movie -- in a movie theater!!  (partly because I went to the Wigstock festival for a few years, including one of the years which was featured in the movie!)
