If I Only Had A Heart covers the song from the movie The Wizard Of Oz (1939). Originally sung by Jack Haley (the Tin Woodman) and Adriana Caselotti (Juliet). Creep is a TLC cover from their album Crazy Sexy Cool (1994). The unedited versions of Honky’s Ladder and Blame, Etc. appear on the album Black Love. The edited version clocks in one minute shorter than the original, and the word ‘motherfucker’ is replaced by a sampled moan from pornstar Tori Wells. Honky’s Ladder (Album Version) omitted from UK releases.
