For decades, some fans believed that the lyrics of "Guy Forget" included:
Basking in the silence
Soaking up the violence
Will the good lord save
Or will I dance on grave?
This has proved mistaken; the only lyric of "Guy Forget" is---you guessed it---"I've never met a man that I could not forget except for Guy Forget." How do we know this?
After conferring with Dave Abrahams about "Guy Forget" (whose lyrics he authored), and after unearthing the never-circulating-until-now 5/3/93 soundcheck---thank you Eric Becker for the recording, and Jeff Goldberg of Audio Specialist for the transfer!---which you can download here and which contains the only known (and hilarious) performance of what we're calling "Will I Dance" with Tom Marshall's permission, it has been determined that "Will I Dance" and "Guy Forget" are entirely different uhm "songs."
Accordingly, the "Guy Forget" song history has been revised and amended with ZZYZX's consent, and the "Will I Dance" history created from part of the former "Guy Forget" history. The histories of these two "songs" are thus forever, albeit ridiculously, linked.
