I wonder because it's on a demo CD and not released as an official song they didn't need to credit her? Or she didn't want to be credited?

I'm pretty sure it's Nina cause the accent sounds German.
Will correct again the lyrics tomorrow as the Japanese booklet has them (albeit with some grammar errors) as I've got a gig tonight and I'm at work now

Am I the only person who is ambivalent towards this song?

Nope.

Cannot understand all the gushing over this song personally.

My least favourite of the whole album/bsides/bonus package. It's like some ghastly show tune.

Yeah, certain lines sound kind of German-ish to me.

Sublime song, really beautiful melody and vocals! Glad I forked over that bit extra for the deluxe version.

But now that they have said this is a secret, I'm coming back to my first impression that it's Mylene...

I missed that - where did they say it's a secret?

Either way, whoever sings it, it's a fantastic song. Would have made a great end to the album.
