Not That Ugly (lost Marina and the Diamonds Myspace song; 2008)
MARINA, previously known as Marina and the Diamonds, is a pop singer-songwriter who got her start on Myspace in 2005. She’s best known for her sophomore album “Electra Heart”, as well as her debut album “The Family Jewels”, which released in 2010.
Background[edit | edit source]
Prior to her debut album, the singer uploaded her self-written and recorded songs onto her Myspace, most of which being home recordings. Many of her Myspace tracks, like Starlight, The Common Cold, and Happy Meal would be uploaded to Youtube over the following years.
One of these tracks that have yet to see the light of day is “Not That Ugly”. According to Marina and the Diamonds fansite rockabilly.net, the track was released on August 16th, 2008 and was 1 minute and 59 seconds long. At the time, it was a free download on her Myspace page, but due to the Myspace deletion of over 15 million songs, it is currently unavailable.
There was speculation that the song could be a demo of a previous track by her entitled “Supermodels Legs”. However, considering Marina has historically have given her songs relative titles (see: Bubblegum Bitch and Mowgli’s Road), this is believed to be false. Besides this, not much else is known about the track.
