Later former CEONEO singer Carsten Agerlin and former CEONEO keyboard player John Visholm added the  outro vocal part and the keyboard solo (instead of guitar).

Ceoneo
Pickering/Binau

Story

Music written by Torben Pickering, former CEONEO guitarist circa 2007. Later Alan wrote the vocal line and provided the lyrics.

Original demo is from Pickering's home studio with later overdubs from Alan's ditto.

Before the final recording minor changes in lyrics were done, but basically the demo and the final song is pretty identical. On this demo the solo instrument wasn't decided yet though, therefore nothing plays during the solo.

The song was included on the second album "No Slack".

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 2008. Demo recorded in Alan's home studio.

The whole feeling of the song was changed from an up-tempo pop-rock song into a more subtle low key song.

Also the arrangement was changed a lot (e.g. the solo was taken out) to make the song more a statement vignette than a "normal" song.

Included on the second album "No Slack".

Binau

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 2008.

The demo was slower than the final recording, that was speeded up to get the song going.

CEONEO
Binau

Story

Written by Alan Binau in 1997, and was released as the first track on the 2007 "Father's Sun" album.

Originally the lyrics were about pop stars that passed, but they were later changed to be about Alan's father, that passed away too.

The feeling, rhythm aso. on the demo, pretty much made it to the final recording. The song was shortened a little though.

 

CEONEO
Binau

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 1976 then called "Love Song". A couple of years later the first demo was made (pls. see Early Demo Song To You)

This demo from 2007 starts with bird chips that were later taken out. The lyrics were changed a little before the final recording as was the arrangement. Also the solo came out differently.

The whole song was shortened too.

The song is on the 2008 "Father's Sun" album.

 

CEONEO
Binau

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 1976, then called "I love you".

The lyrics were rewritten in 2006 and even after this demo were changed a bit.

This demo from 2006 doesn't have that reggae feeling with drums and guitars that later was added.

Because of the sound of the demo (almost tacky) the song was almost dropped for the first album. But after recording new drums, guitars and adding Christina Boelskifte's vocal, it was included - and actually became the hit song of the album (Father's Sun).

Story

This demo made in 2006 includes some more live ambience, that was later taken out.

Apart from the solo and some editing that made the song shorter, the song was pretty much recorded as the demo goes.

The song was released on the first album "Father's Sun".

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 1995. Demo recorded in 2006.

The demo is a bit longer that the final version. Also it doesn't come with a solo guitar - that was added later.

CEONEO
Binau

Story

Written in circa 1984 by Alan Binau it originally was a song in Danish with a pop feeling, written for an amateur band. (Pls. listen to early demo). As it was never used it was changed to this English version.

This is one of the few demos where many of the recorded instruments actually were used on the final version - ukelele, guitars, drums, bass and the piano solo (played by John Visholm). Also the arrangement on the demo did not change.

Included on the Father's Sun album.

Story

Written by Alan Binau in 1976 this song was initially called "No Chance" and and early demo was made (pls. se Early Demo It's U.). 

In the early 2000s the lyrics were changed and this new demo made.

The final recording got to sound pretty much as the demo with only minor changes made e.g. last verse was taken out to make the song shorter.

The song was included on the Father's Sun album.

 

CEONEO
BINAU

Story

Written by Alan Binau in 1976 this song was called Quciksand. In 2006 the lyrics changed and the song was arranged differently to make the song shorter.

The demo (2006) was made shorter for the final version, but a lot of the instruments on the demo recording were actually kept on the final recording (guitars, percussion, drums).

The song was included on the Father's Sun album as the last song on the album.

CEONEO
Binau

Story

Written by Alan Binau circa 1985, it contained a lot of verses that were later cut out.

The demo, recorded circa 2007, still had too many verses, so they were cut out to make the song shorter.

The solo was replayed on the final recording, but apart from that the sound and feeling became pretty much the same.

Father's Sun became the title song of the first album.

CEONEO
Binau

Story

This demo was recorded circa 2006. The song was written by Alan Binau circa 1976, the called "Straight into Hell". 

The original song had other lyrics, they were changed in 2006.

From the demo to the song nothing much happened: many of the recorded instruments were used and the arrangement is pretty much the same. One verse was taken out though and other changes were made in the lyrics. Also the idea of the train as a metaphor (of death) was made.

The song was included on the Father's Sun album.

Story

Written by Alan around 1990, this is the second and final version of the demo. The second verse was later omitted. The whole song was made shorter too. The song pretty much ended up sounding like the demo, structure and instrument wise.
