Just check my old files I've downloaded from BMI some years ago and there is a lot of names of songs which are not released and I have never heard anything about them! For instance:

"ALI" (BMI Work #004282382) - writers are: Deacon John Richard, Bowie David, May Brian Harold, Mercury Freddie, Taylor Roger Meddows, Rogers Andrell D. (who is he?).

Or some songs contributed to John which I've never heard before:
BAD BOY
GIVE ME SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN
GOTTA BUY YOUR DOPE FROM US
THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE

If someone's interested I can post other unknown tracks written by Brian/Roger/John/Fred and registered by BMI.

(Sorry if this question was asked/posted before)

As far as I know, all of these songs sample Queen songs (in the first instance, 'Under Pressure'), and they seem to be rap/R&B songs (sorry for generalizing).

Thanks Lester! It explains a lot!

But anyway it's interesting to check those lists because some of tracks were real unreleased ones 'till the FM box set. I've read them before release of the box set and some tracks like 'Money Can't Buy Happiness' was in the list!

And 'My Baby Does Me' registered as its' demo title 'My Baby Loves Me'.
