Poor Little Bastard is an unreleased track recorded in mid-April 1992, at Platinum Studios, Melbourne, Australia (while also on the Diamonds And Pearls Tour, during the same set of sessions as Don’t Talk 2 Strangers, The Rest Of My Life, There Is Lonely, Be My Mirror, Wow and re-recordings of Make Believe and I’ll Do Anything). The song was written specifically for the James L. Brooks movie I’ll Do Anything, and was re-recorded by Hollye Leven but is not known to have been considered for the planned I’ll Do Anything album. The song remains unreleased, but follows the same musical model as both Damn U and Extraordinary.
