Find here original versions, covers & demos of Amuro Namie’s songs.

Note:
– A ‘Demo’ is a pre-version recorded for limited circulation, even though some artists choose to perform them or put them online. It is often a proposal sent by songwriters to artists and labels. Amuro Namie is known to have listened to hundreds of demos before she has made her mind for her last albums.

– An ‘Alternate version’ is a song released from the same original demo, but which rights were bought by a different artist often in a different country [ex: ‘Christmas Wish’ and ‘Lucky Star’]. It is also used here to name a song that cannot be properly called a self-cover, but which is another version released by a same artist [ex: ‘What I did for Love’ by David Guetta].

– Songs bear the mention ‘Sampled By’ when they only retain a single part of the original song, whether it is the whole chorus or a very subtle musical element [ex: ‘Dreaming I was Dreaming’ and ‘Liquid Gang’]. When there is no original singing, the whole song can be considered as sampled [ex: ‘Ballerina’ and ‘Fire Power’].

– A cover retains most of the original song even if changes in the melody, lyrics or structure can happen. Only covers that were officially released or put online by the artists appear here. Covers sung during live concerts are to be on their specific page. Self-covers by Amuro Namie of SUPER MONKEY’S songs found in ‘Finally’ as well as instrumental covers and medleys are not included.
