Mr. Rogers Visits the Cows
The original copies of Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space featured an alternate version of the title track that was then removed from the later reissues of the album. The original version of the song featured much of the lyrics melody of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love With You sung in the background of the song as well as being much more present in the main vocals. The result created a much more atmospherically driven and downright gorgeous song, but the Presley Estate made them remove it due to copyright claims. The song was finally featured on the 2009 deluxe reissue of the album, under the condition that it be called Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space (I Can’t Help Falling In Love)

Leo Tolstoy in the Hell. Fresco, 1883.
It’s a well-known story about complicated relations between Tolstoy and the Orthodox Church that ended up with excommunication of the writer. Though let me remind that Tolstoy died only in 1910 so the image of him sitting on the devil’s knees is a kind of dream of the Church.
