"Adios Desconocida" // The B-52’s
demo from Mesopotamia (1982)
Wikipedia describes this as, “A ballad with lead vocal by Schneider in an uncharacteristically soft and romantic tone”, and they’re pretty spot on.
It’s not a great song, but the B’s were never a band with a large catalog of outtakes/alternate versions/demos, so I’ll take whatever I can get.
Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson of The B-52’s

Better put up my umbrella!
Giant stacks blowin’ smoke
Politicrits pushin’ dope
All I know we’ve got to change what’s happening
Something good could happen
I feel light has got to come through, and I need it
Something big and lovely
