show this pic (click to bigger)



you can see two cds of HIM greatest lovesongs vol 666 DIGIPaCK
the one of the left is the original 1997 release printed on plant AB holland (as says on the artwork)
the one of the right is the reprint in CD-Linja OY, finland (same site choosen by BAM to print the HER 3 track promo that he attached with his decks*?, its not curious? )

original finnish release must not be rare, because our loved band sold 400k on his country, but as they do reprint

another tip about bleed well promos

as i know from previous promotion cds, the euro-german-version of the promos are slightly differents from the ones printed on UK

the euro versions use to have the warner logo printed on the silver side, and better printing quality, more crearly on the euro-german version

i noticed this first with killing loneliness promo, that i got one extra in an auction i wont
and a few days ago i tryed again, buying an cheaper bleed well promo from germany, and i confirmed it, the german printings of those promos have better quality and some small differences

LC03228 text is on cd and artwork from german promo (better printing quality)
ECD blackburn is the printing company of the uk promos (worst printing quality)

I doubt you'll ever get a studio version of Rebel Yell.

him?, bam? and the 69 eyes? singing we are the world...


I found this on youtube and well, I'm not convinced at all that it's actually them singing and I thought that maybe some of you knew something more about this or well can hear if it's them? I usually can but this time I find it kinda difficult  :-\
I wish I could say hello to Iggy Pop. Obviously, this is not the right moment!

Technically, you already have a recording of Rebel Yell in the Singles Collection.
Plus I think if they released Rebel Yell with their next album that it might not fit in with the direction they want to go so it wouldn't feel right to have it on the album.  And it wouldn't be right to release it as a single 'cause it has no relation to VD.

I'd be all for either a newer live version or a proper studio version as a b-side. The fact that they are playing it live again at least means there's a slight chance.
I wouldn't want to see it on a new album, unless it was a special bonus track ala "Poison Heart".

i just had an epiphany, and i recommend you guys try it

i took a HIM cd I don't listen to as much anymore (make sure u take the actual CD, no mp3). in my case it's razorblade romance, and play it ur stereo, car, headphones, or whatever u like to listen to music the most with.

i played it in my headphones on a train this morning, listen to the whole cd, and it was so fucking good. and with all the music i listen to, its nice to go back to one of my favorite cd's ive neglected for a while and just rock out.

of course it doesnt work for people who listen to only HIM 24/7, but if u listen to all types of bands and music, and change songs like 30 seconds into it like me, then it's really nice to try. it was just so great to hear that opening riff of razorblade kiss, which ive been only listening to live version of lately.

some questions will be answered and others well...

Ville's judgment
--I hate talking about my own songs. They're all about women anyway.

I Love You
We thought about this one a lot while we were doing the first album, and we did a million versions of it. We had to record this one just because of the title, because those three words are the beginning of every tragedy. A good intro to the record: short, tight, and hits you in the face. And if anyone who hears Join Me in Death thinks that we are just doing that posing-with-bulges-in-our-too-tight-pants glam thing, this proves that we have some vitality.

Poison Girl
This song is about a certain girl and how you can destroy something beautiful. This isn't a song about hate; it's about asking for forgiveness. All of my songs are about real relationships: there's nothing fake about them. I've never liked building fantasy worlds. The texts are personal therapy, so I'm saving a little money here. Actually I'm making a little.

Join Me in Death
I think this is one of the weaker tracks on the album. The piano is nice, but maybe the song doesn't mean anything to me because it's not about real life. This is an old song-the first demo was done in January '98-and I've already gotten sick of it, because it's just the same simple thing over and over.

Right Here in My Arms
An old song, a back-to-the-eighties Billy Idol rip off. The video could have babes with big tits hanging around backstage. I wanted to get that feeling that you had when the last song was playing at the school dance and you wanted to dance and get close to that girl that you really liked. I didn't get too close very often. So this is my revenge. I have a really fucking bad emotional fixation.

Gone with the Sin
This is one of my favorite tracks-probably for the other guys also. It's not very HIM. It's light and you can find a little country twang in it if you look hard enough. It's a really simple love song, but the cliches have been turned around. It's like a negative version of everything.

Razorblade Kiss
This is a tribute to Kiss and rock and roll. The only track without a real melody. Some German critics said that my voice sounds like early Ozzy on this one. I hadn't thought about it that way myself, and I really got a lump in my throat when I heard all of the positive reactions. Maybe Ozzy's spirit descended on me while I was singing this one in the booth.

Bury Me Deep Inside Your Heart
Depeche Mode meets Roxette. Eighties stadium music, even though it has been done as a rock and roll tune and with the warmth of the nineties. The guitars work well. Goddam, I hate talking about my own songs. Thery're all about women.

Heaven Tonight
My idea of heaven is a little unusual. We're probably in heaven when we're in an airplane. This is a really simple symbolic reference. Heaven is when something happy happens. It could mean getting some pussy or catching a fish or getting a record. Small wishes come true all the time, but in this business there is no heaven there: there's no moment that I can say "I've got it all." That's what makes it interesting.

Death is in Love with Us
The working title of this song was 666 Medley, because we wanted to get evil onto this album too. At first we thought this would be the first cut on the album. It's fast, short, and to the point, but not dark. It says "Baby, it's not our fault if the man with the scythe digs us. If he digs black lips and hair and white skin, it doesn't mean that everything is fucked." This is a goth anthem.

Resurrection
If Bon Jovi had put on goth makeup and done a video, this would have been the result. This is going for the feeling that you get when you've seen a Kiss video for the first time on TV. Sing-along, larger-than-life stadium love-in.

One Last Time
This is totally different from any of those other songs. The idea was that it would be nice to end the album with something a little cheerier. We'll probably never play this on tour. We broke away from the HIM sound for this one. When you listen through all the different things on the album and you get to this at the end, it leaves the future open. It's like, "What the fuck?"

*EDIT*
i dont know if this was ever posted i just found it and thought i would share

Hmm.

Whatever happened to b-sides?

They need to introduce another uneasy listening.

We'll probably get something to tide us over this Christmas...and then we'll start hearing news about the next album trickle in after new years.
