"woe" is an old topic that does crop up occasionally, so perhaps there's some truth in it...also have a feelign it m,ay have ended up as part of "prophet's song"

is it possible that  "any given day"  "all for nothing"  and "and baby will fall" were the initial working titles of final "opera" tracks?

"any given day" and "all for nothing" could easily be "good company" and "you're my best friend"

I think it was established that Woe was probably the working title for "The Millionaire Waltz", and was recorded during the Day At the Races sessions.  Brian was talking about the song in an old "Circus" magazine as one with a ridiculous amount of overdubs.

I think that all of them are just a rumours/legends, just like "Surrender to the City".

Some of them might be a working titles of known songs (although I rather question this idea), but it doesn't mean that songs under these names were recorded at all. Anyway, if demo of "The Millionaire Waltz" exists, it won't be named "Woe".
