mmm skyscraper i love you (the last 3 minutes)
always been curious - does the bit comprising of the last three minutes and change have a separate name?

It's a manipulation of a song called "Can U Feel Me?" which is a MKI/MKII-ish song (in the way M.E. is). The full song made its way onto a MKII demo DAT tape, but never an official MKII release. It also appeared on a MKI demo tape.

Thanks for the history lesson! Gave "Can U Feel Me?" another good listen - can't believe I never picked up on that before. Awesome.

I just always called it "Skyscraper Coda". I know about that demo track, though.

Ah yes, Can U Feel Me, reminds me of Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal :P

Re: mmm skyscraper i love you (the last 3 minutes)
what happened to the post where someone wrote it's called "what would genesis do?". i wish we could "like" posts on here.

to me it's the same song, it's permanently part of skyscraper... to me it's the second "movement" in skyscraper. it does have some things in common with "can u feel me?" but to me it's different enough that it's a section of music in its own right rather than an instrumental version of can u feel me, sort of like cherry pie versus rowla or ansum versus little speaker.
