That was the "Screenager" intro inthe halcyon days when it was played live.The "Butterflies&Hurricanes"issue...I think itīs more about the string section of the Allegro Scherzando of the Piano Concerto II.It has been discussed lots of times.Same happens with "Space Dementia".You know,the "...tear us apart,and makes us meaningless again" line matches with the string section of the Moderato.

Even so, it shows a pretty good knowledge of romantic music from Bellamy. Only classical music officianados would be able to detect. Honestly I don't have a problem with rock bands nicking off the classical/romantic composers, because it's hard to do. It's the riff copying off previous rock bands which is trouble.

Butterflies & Hurricanes - do you prefer album or single edit?

Each has their upsides/downsides:

Album - the full piano solo, but lacks the guitar solo right before
Single - truncated piano solo, but love the extra guitar tracks and solo

Honestly I don't get the point of truncating the piano solo for the single release, so it would have been 20 seconds longer? I hate butchery of art.

There's:
- album version
- full length remix with additional guitars (used in the video and track 1 on the singles)
- radio edit (from the promos, piano solo removed with no extra guitars).

The live version they've played since around the single release is most similar to the remix with additional guitars.

The one on the video is NOT full length! Check the running time, it's about :50 shorter then the album version. It lacks the lengthy piano lead-in to the solo and a truncated piano solo.

For those in the know, had Bellamy ever performed the guitar solo that leads into the piano solo in the single edit live?

Butterflies and Hurricanes 100% Piano Live?

I could probably have found the answer with enough wiki-digging but...

Was B&H ever performed 100% on piano live (like the Absolution version)?

cheers.
