|Black Hole & I'm Stupid... Fake Singles?
Many people emailed me asking if I know something about the
release of those singles, of wich the covers are available on many
sites. But surfing
on the net it's easy to find fake pictures or jokes.
The Black Hole cover is authentic and is taken from iTunes or
other digital download sites.
song was released as a digital single in late 2004. No back cover
has ever been released (or I've never seen it).
I'm Stupid is quite sure a fake one. Anyway, these are the reasons that let me think
- Searching for it on eBay or Google returned no results.
- It uses a well known pic of Ana taken from an official
photoshot. This could be OK for Black Hole (that is a japanese bonus
track) because sometimes b-sides or bonus tracks are released in
other countries as exclusive or promotional singles and since they're some kind of
secondary-importance releases, there is no much work behind the
So it seems strange that for a brand new single
the label didn't use a brand new picture.
- The font used for the "Ana Johnsson" logo printed
on the cover is uncommon, since they used the same font
for every official singles selected from the album The Way I Am.
- There is a code on the sticker of I'm Stupid: 96244 26 96.
No search engine is able to find useful results for it, as it
happens for the codes printed on official singles.
- The tracklist reported is:
1. Im Stupid
2. Im Stupid - Live
3. Coz I Can - Live
4. Lost Love
Usually when a live track is featured on a single, date and place of
the performance are well explained on the back or in the interior.
Being a "square" cover, let me think it is a sleeve CD
single, so it has no interior design. Lost Love (track 4) is an unknown
song and nobody has ever told us to have listen it.
