Holy crap, "She's Gone" doesn't have a I chord, either.

That means that there are two songs, back-to-back, on the Abandoned Luncheonette album that don't have an authentic cadence. In fact, neither song has a tonic chord AT ALL. This is amazing to me. "I'm Just a Kid" dodges the tonic over and over. "She's Gone" seems to substitute a sustained Vsus to V pattern for the I chord.

I get excited about things like this. Judge me as necessary. But this is nervy, risky songwriting.

I prefer the longer, album version, and this audio is junk. but the video is too good.
