    Is Dead Souls considered a part of The Downward Spiral???

    havent posted in a really long time but ive been getting in a heated argument with someone about wether or
    not dead souls is considered to be a part of TDS. I say no because it wasnt on the original release and wasnt recorded during the album sessions. they say it is part of the album because of its inclusion on the japanese import and deluxe edition. what do you say?

    No. It’s considered part of the soundtrack for The Crow. It’s also considered a bonus track on the Japanese import of TDS and the deluxe 10-year anniversary version of TDS. I love that song, but despite apparently being the first song they recorded at the Sharon Tate house (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong about that), it's a cover and not part of the "story" or concept of TDS.

    Japanese releases at the time typically included an extra track or two as an extra incentive to buy. Nothing more to its inclusion there.

    Being on the deluxe edition is no kind of argument as that also includes a bunch of remixes and demos.

    All signs point to no.

    Correct. The Japanese versions tend to be considerably more expensive (30-40% more than the US & EU), so they typically add a bonus track or two to discourage Japanese consumers from buying an import from the US or EU and encourage them to buy the local version.
