Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger has a few pet songs that are finally getting a public airing on "Out-of-State Plates" (Virgin), the group's new collection of B-sides and other rarities, including holiday songs such as "I Want an Alien for Christmas."
But one of his favorites is "You're Just Never Satisfied," which Schlesinger says was around a long time before it appeared on an album.
"It's a rough demo we never recorded in an official way," he says. "It's a song I like and always wished we would've put on a record at some point." Schlesinger says the band thought about doing a full-on recording of the song but decided to let it be.
"I don't think there's any rules about it; it's not like we think we're gonna get hate mail if we decided to recut it. The only time you can't do that is when you have something that's a hit - like Sting did with 'Don't Stand So Close to Me.' I remember being furious about that."
