Unreleased Tracks

Below is a list of the known titles for Alice Cooper songs that have, generally, never been released. It's is obviously not a complete list of everything that exists, but rather a list of songs that are know to have been written, demoed or even just mentioned by Alice but which have never appeared on an official album.

I've been sitting here for about 5 minutes and I can remember a bunch of the songs but I'm blanking out on most of the titles. The main reason that most of these songs weren't on is that they weren't that good to start with. As far as style goes, it depended on the writer but I would pretty much say most were basically rock n roll. Some of the songs were 'Best Friend' ('The Last Temptation'), 'Underground' ('Hey Stoopid'), 'The Ballad of Alice Cooper' ('Hey Stoopid'), 'Bad Angel' ('Trash'), 'Good Girl Gone Bad' ('Trash'), couple of songs by Blades and Shaw ('The Last Temptation'), a song with Bob Ezrin and Dick Wagner ('The Last Temptation' - sorry, can't recall the title at the moment), 'If 4th Street Could Talk' ('Hey Stoopid'). I'll try to come up with some more later.
(Renfield, October 1995)

There were a few songs very early on before 'The Last Temptation' took shape ('Invisible Strings' was the name of one). And I think only a couple towards the end ('Blood Brother' was one).
(Renfield, November 1997)

The Ezrin 'Last Temptation' demos are loosely related to the concept. They were done kind of early on.
(Renfield, October 1995)

'Spirits Rebellious' was a concept that Alice was playing with around 1996/7. Alice mentioned in interviews that it was based on a short story and that lyrics were written. The title was finally to appear as a song on the 'Eyes Of Alice Cooper' album.


Please note that some of these songs were never recorded, even in demo form, and most will likely never see the light of day (comments from Renfield, March 1998 except were noted). Others have actually been released since this list was first put together and have been noted as such.

'Respect for the Sleepers'

Alice says this was written for GB. To the tune of Muscle Of Love it goes something...like...this:

"Well, I don't really know myself
But, I ain't really tried.
After leanin' on that crazy stuff,
Too many friends have died

I'll be buried in the same old way,
But prob(bly) not for years,
Yeah, I'll be buried in the same old way
From TV, Whiskey, and Beer!

I got Respect for the Sleepers
But the Sleepers are Dead!
** here the Muscle Of Love lead run ***
(Jeff Jatras, May 1998)

This track is now available on the Boxset.

Call It Evil

It's from the School Out day's, was rehearsed by the band, but not put on the album. (Jeff Jatras, May 1998)

The Song was co-written with Rockin` Reggie Vincent.

This track is now available on the Boxset.

Dress (AC)

That one is something of a mystery. I have some hand written sheet music for this song with a few lyrics. I estimate it being written around pre-1970. I think it is credited to Alice Cooper on the sheet music and I think that indicates it was written by all five members (as in the songwriting for the songs on Pretties For You. Alice had no particular recollection of the title. I know of no recording of it.
(Renfield)

Hello, Is Anyone Home? (Cooper, Bruce, Dunaway, Buxton)

Also listed as "Anyone Home" No Further Info. Not the same song as the track on 'A Fistful Of Alice'.

Frontal Labotomy (Dennis Dunaway, Glen Buxton)

Exists in very rough demo form only.

School's Back In

A "goofy" blues song by the original band.

Baby Please Don't Stop (Neal Smith, ?)

Sung by Neal and recorded during the 'Muscle Of Love' Sessions. Recordings in trading circles. Turned up on Neal's 'Platinum God' album in different form.

Locked Up Lullaby (Alice Cooper/ Bruce Roberts)

This was co-written by Bruce Roberts and from the 'From The Inside' sessions. It was considered for the box but was deemed not crucial enough. The box was is kinda "ballad-heavy" already and this would have been yet another ballad. If Rhino were to do a special reissue of FTI, I wouldn't doubt that it could be included there.
(Renfield (paraphrased), December 1998)

This song was performed live on the US TV-show “TV Soundstage” in January 1979, with Bruce Roberts doing the vocals. This is the TV-show that also included Alice and Bruce Robets performing “Millie and Billie”, accompanied by a piano.

Menagerie - (Alice Cooper/Alan Lee Gordon)

An AWFUL song which was written and recorded in demo from around the time of Goes To Hell.

Hidden Persuaders - "very rough demo" from Dada sessions

Don`t Blame It On Me (Alice Cooper/Robert William Athis (Kane Roberts))

This was written for Constrictor and recorded in finished form. There is a test pressing of Constrictor that actually includes this song.

Summer In The USA AKA Hard Rock Summer (Alice Cooper/Robert William Athis (Kane Roberts))

This is from Friday the 13th and is on the box set.

Bad Girl In Love

Raise Your Fist Period

Low Class Reunion (Alice Cooper/Desmond Child)

This was demo recorded for 'Trash' album but didn't make the final choice.

The Ballad Of Alice Cooper (Jon Bon Jovi/Alice Cooper?)

Demoed By both Jon And Alice around Trash.

'The Ballad of Alice Cooper' was actually demoed by Alice. Both Jon and Alice did their own respective demos of the song. Jon sang a verse and chorus of the song live on the Rockline radio show. IMO the title is rather lame. Titles of demos are easily and sometimes changed by the time they are done for an album.
(Renfield, October 1995)

The Ballad of Alice Cooper (Jon Bon Jovi)

Used to be a billion dollar baby
I used to be the eyes that made you scream
Used to be the one that I could talk to
But now there's something else [Alice?], there's you and me
I used to think I really didn't need you
But I used to think that only women bleed
And I ain't gonna cry no more
I've been to hell and back before
Watch me as I walk out the door
Because Alice doesn't live here anymore

Recorded by Iggy Pop for the 'Shocker' Soundtrack, Alice also recorded a demo of the song.
