Hi Thibo,

That song comes from an alternate unreleased version of the Songs of Pain cassette.

Actually, the 1st version you list is the original "song of songs" as Dan puts it. I can't listen on this computer so I'm not 100% certain about the 2nd one you list (I think it's a remake that was originally entitled "Grievances Revisited"). There is also a song entitled "Grievances" on the Texas Trip compilation album, with the original lyrics but new improvised music by the Butthole Surfers, plus a completely unrelated song entitled "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances" and a spoken word bit entitled "Mabel's Grievances".

In the version that was referred to in the first post, Dan adapted his original lyrics to fit a traditional melody from around the 14th century or thereabouts. It remains unreleased but you can tape it off Youtube with an old recording Walkman ("old-fashioned Daniel Johnston style") since it is so lo-fi to begin with!

They laughed when I sat down at the piano.
They didn't think that I could play.
But their laughter turned to amazement,
When I got back up and carried it away...

Gosh, how'd I miss this all these years...!  shocked

It's a lot of work being a Daniel Johnston fan!

By the way, For Mac users, you can save the youtube video to your computer in Safari by going up to the menu and selecting "activity" under "window." Then scroll down, find the file that's streaming, hold down the option key, and double click the mouse. That will save the file to your desktop, at which point you can extract the audio using any number of programs.
