Pink Floyd - On the Run (Studio Version) Pink Floyd - On the Run (Demo) - Pink Floyd had been performing much of The Dark Side of the Moon live for about a year before recording it in the studio. This is the original version of On the Run that was eventually replaced with the synthesizer version on the final studio recording. I like both but I think I prefer the original with the guitar.
Pink Floyd - Have A Cigar - Roger Waters wasn't comfortable/confident doing the vocals for the Wish You Were Here album so Pink Floyd brought in Roy Harper to do the vocals. This is a demo of Have a Cigar with Waters singing.
This is Paul McCartney improvising on the old Jerome Kern standard "The Way You Look Tonight" (listen to a conventional version here). You can actually hear as the song evolves into The Beatles' "I Will".

I've gone back and forth on that Doors demo, it sounds like Morrison but the quality is probably too good for that period. I'll leave the link up because it's not a bad version of the song even if it's a fake.
