The first batch of songs Shelly had lined up for the album were:
Totally Underwater; Sands of the Sea; Strange Addiction; The Ultimate Rave; Without Love; End of my World; What a Lonely Place; Escape; Maybe it's the Dark; Long Way Down; How Do You Know This Girl; Nikki; Love You Done Me Wrong.
However, the new album tracklisting Version 2.0, to be titled "Totally Under Water", ready in June 2004, had a final lineup of:
Totally Under Water; Hard Time For The Dreamer; Little Wonder; How Do U Know This Girl; Lose Yourself; Don't Look That Way; Lost In You; If You'll Be Pilot; Ultimate Rave; Ambition; Hope; Fit Somewhere; Give It Your Best.
Now, in June 2005, we have Version 3.0 which has the tracklisting shown above! A lot of songs have hit the cutting room floor, then. Some of them are not likely to turn up as Shelly recordings as she feels they're no longer for her as an artist, but given that she's spent the last 6 months writing for other artists there's a possibility they might be recorded by another artist in the future, who knows?
This just in from her official site on 02.08.2005
The album may be in the can and all the tracks selected, but Shelly has heaps left over.
Below are a list of possible B-sides and other such gems. Look out for them, we may well upload them up here when they are finished being mixed!
- B-sides and Leftovers -
Give It Your Best
How Do You Know This Girl
What A Lonely Place
Maybe It’s The Dark
Blue Midnight Sky
AND THEN THERE'S MORE:
Shelly says "One of my songs, 'Je m'appelle Michelle' has now been renamed! 'Je m'appelle RACHEL' and has been sung by Rachel Stevens on her new album."
"It was written about 2 years ago over a Damian Legassick track while I was in Paris and is about a French hostess. I was in a cabaret club by myself watching all the coming and goings ...It was fascinating!"
Hilariously, there was a claim recently published online and in a less-than-reputable UK newspaper that the track was originally written for Michelle McManus, so that can now be officially consigned to the rumour bin!
