I *totally* agree. Xanax and Wine rocks my socks off, Fast Cars not so much so. Who knows why they chose FC over it...legal reasons, maybe, or just the evolution of the song, or whatever. :/

I like both of them quite a bit. They each have a unique sound. I'm not sure which I like better, but I hope that "Xanax and Wine" will be released as a b-side at some point. "Smile" as well. I am in love with that song.

You're welcome. :)

Thanks! I've been a Steelers fan for about ten years now...can't wait for next year. We almost had it. I hope we do as well next year and then go to Detroit for the Super Bowl...and win that. That would be so awesome. (By the way, I'm not even from Pittsburgh. People always ask me that...and then they ask why I love the Steelers if I'm not from the `burgh. *eyeroll* I'm from Upstate NY...as in Saranac Lake. Am at school in the Southern Tier, though. Good thing, because everyone at home seems to be a Pats fan...*facepalm*)

haha! I'm from MA, where of COURSE everyone's a Pats fan (I got a couple of not so nice phone calls during that game...lol). I've only been a fan since oh....several months ago? LOL But I certainly picked the right season to start watching!

Y'know, when the album came out, I loved Fast Cars, but when I heard Xanax and Wine, my love of Fast Cars just died. Great song. I'm sad it didn't get polished and put on the album, but also kind of happy it didn't.

I think Fast Cars is slightly better overall, but maybe I would have preferred Xanax & Wine if I'd heard that one first, because then the lyrics would have sounded "right" with that version of the music... who knows!  I adore both, though. The falsetto on "wiiine" absolutely kills me dead.

i think i like "Fast Cars" over "Xanax and Wine" there is something "Fast Cars" has that "Xanax and Wine" does not. I can't put my finger on it.

Tho i have to say i like the clapping bit in "Xanax and Wine"
