Songs List

This is a current list of the songs that are officially released under the banner of The Wedding Present and/or Cinerama. This is my list, not an official one but hopefully it is pretty accurate. This is not necessarily an order in which the songs were written but account of this will be taken on another page.

Cover songs/Ukranian songs will follow later.

* Original title from session version in brackets

** Strictly speaking, this wasn’t ‘released’ at this point but fans heard it broadcast by Peel. Years later the song morphed into Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah but this version is so different, it deserves a separate listing. This is reflected by Keith Gregory not getting a song writing credit for Yx5 even though he was for other songs that later turned up during Watusi. It was provided officially as part of the various Peel Sessions releases.

*** Original title from session version in brackets

**** Not really a song in its own right – it’s just the intro to Interstate 5 but the American record company didn’t like it so it got chopped off and thus ended up as a separate track

***** From El Rey sessions – released on Japanese charity album

  1. Looking forward to the day when all the lyrics are transcribed here with David’s annotations. All 218 of them!! A lyric book is long overdue… maybe I’ll end up illustrating it!
