Note: V1 is a solo acoustic demo recorded between September 1981 and April 1982 at Bruce's house at Colts Neck. He used the same melody he composed for "Follow That Dream", with lyrics lifted from "Loose Ends", and some that would end up in "Janey Don't You Lose Heart". V2 is a fascinating band rehearsal from Colts Neck dated after V1, but in the same time period, still using the borrowed melody from "Follow That Dream" and lyrics from "Loose Ends". Even though "Loose Ends" was finished in 1979, it's clear Springsteen was keen to scavenge most of the lyrics for "Baby I'm So Cold", but then again, the latter was never released, and sometimes we have little idea what Bruce is doing with his vast empire of songs. According to studio logs, V3 was later recorded at Power Station on May 11, 1982, perhaps the "Loose Ends" lyrics were just a placeholder, and by then it had its own identity.
