Well, I know it sounds funny...some of the unused lyrics, that is.

Here's a photo I took at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame of Eric's original lyrics for "Hit Record" earlier this year. Some interesting bits of unused lyrics in the bridge. It's not in the same rhythm as what eventually made the recording (try singing it to the song—it doesn't fit), which makes me wonder if the bridge had a different melody when Eric first wrote it.

Bumping an old thread but I missed this when it was first posted. Really cool to see some of the finessing of the lyrics in the bridge; seems Eric had the major ideas he wanted to touch on, but just not quite the concise, effective lines that would make the final cut. Just goes to show how much a draft or two can help!
