Re: Used To Love Her

(Stradlin)

Lyrics

I used to love her
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Mm, yeah
But I had to kill her
I had to put her six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, Oo, yeah
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Oo, yeah
But I had to kill her
I knew I'd miss her
So I had to keep her
She's buried right in my backyard
Oh yeah, Oo yeah, whoa, oh yeah

I used to love her
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Mm, yeah
But I had to kill her
She bitched so much, She drove me nuts
And now I'm happier this way, yeah
Whoa, oh yeah

I used to love her
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Mm, yeah
But I had to kill her
I had to put her, Oo, six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I have one question concerning "Used To Love Her." It seems someone in addition to Axl Rose is singing. Am I correct or is his voice overdubbed on this song?

Re: Used To Love Her

I'm pretty sure its just Axl on vocals. If I can remember, tomorrow I'll dig through my cds and see if I can find it and I'll check the liner notes. If memory serves me correctly, the liner notes on Lies blew. The album revolved around that tabloid cover art and LLAS art and little attention was paid to anything else.

Thanks, James. My son, who grew-up listening to GNR, says it's only Axl too. My music comes from the 60s & 70s, the Byrds, the Beatles, the Kinks, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Cream, Led Zeppelin, the Stones, the Yardbyrds, etc. I do like this song very much, but it just sounds like some else's voice in additional to Axl. We, therefore, have a bet which needs settling. If you can help further, I would appreciate it.

What do you mean by LLAS art, by the way?

Live Like A Suciede.

The "Live Tracks" were once a seperate EP called that. Lies is those songs repackaged with the accoustic numbers as one album.

As for the singing. Tough call - i'd never noticed before until i just had a good listen to it then. There's definately several voice tracks but I can't tell if they're all axls or someone with him.

Glad you chimed in, monkeychow. I have never listened much to GNR since my musical preferences predate them by, maybe, twenty to twenty-five years, mostly due to age differential. I remembered this particular song from the past, a cassette tape my son was playing, its sort of rolling, more acoustic but fast tempo, and little or no Axl-screams, and downloaded it among music from my time in order to burn CDs. I must say, it's an excellent piece of rock music. I have listened very carefully, I am aware of overdubbing a singer's voice, I am aware good singers can significantly alter the tenor of their voices, and that voices can be manipulated electronicly, but given all this, it still sounds like someone else's voice. How can we verify this one way or the other?

The live recording is no help and, to an extent, validates my position, since Axl sings there only in his high-pitched voice.
