Hey, all you Blunt fanatics.
I've happily joined your ranks!

And, I have a question. While feverishly gathering all the recordings I can (I'm pretty sure you know what that's like!), i'm wondering if the version of "Butterfly" that's a b'side differs from the demo version on the "Monkey on My Shoulder" EP.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Your new fan friend,

David

Thanks very much.
I had found that site, which is how I knew "Butterfly" was also a b'side, but I was unable to determine if the versions from the two were different.

Any help?

Thanks again!

Wonder which butterfly the song was about.

The children I work with hatched out seven butterflies from egg stage and then released them into the park.

One couldn't fly so I rescued him, named him Brian, nursed him back to health and set him free a week later. The children still call every Painted Lady butterfly Brian.

BTB - Target version - US

This is what the cd looks like, i was lucky to buy this CD last year. The EP has early demo versions of the songs.

Oh my gosh Hils, You're adorable. I am so happy that you nursed 'Brian' back to health and set him free to take wing and fly!!!

While I'm here, I'll mention that I find the song enchantingly cute and sweet.

I wonder if Billy (or anyone) knows if "Monkey on my Shoulder" EP is still available somewhere. Sounds like a lot of people are interested.

OK..

I can't help thinking this song is about being in love and making love with that person.

It sounds so sweet, innocent and shy. No one has mentioned it, so I'm probably the only one to think that.
