LISTEN: Two "Erotica" unreleased songs

Over the years demos for "Erotica" album, referred to by superfans as “the Rain tapes,” have made their way online, mostly as snippets, along with a lot of fakes.

“You Are the One” exemplifies the club-pop approach of her early-’90s recordings, with a bubblegum vocal part over a organ-driven Shep Pettibone house beat and a post-acid-house bass line.

“Shame” is a relatively serious song with a self-empowerment hook seemingly intended to repeat the success of “Express Yourself” from her previous album, and would have fit in with Erotica‘s political streak. It may have had a better chance of making the album if it had been kicked up a few BPM.
