I failed to mention that they discuss and show clips of "When Love Is Gone" during the extra features of the film. There is a part where Michael Caine mentions that he had never sung before and it was initially a challenge for him to sing in studio. It was entertaining to watch.

Entertaining, yes, but still wrong that it is not included in the movie.

I wondered why the new dvds didn't have that song. when I was a kid I had the VHS version and remember the song being in there. I thought for a moment I was imagining things.

I also remember the Rankin/Bass Rudolph television special had a song called "fame and fortune" in it when I was a kid. My mom used to record christmas shows that aired on tv and every year when I watched it, I remember that song (plus it was pretty neat to see all those old He-man toy commercials or the McDonalds commercials with Ronald, Grimmace, and Birdy).

When my kids watch Rudolph, in place of that fame and fortune song they play "we're a couple of misfits". I told my wife that it used to be "fame and fortune" and she thinks I'm pulling her leg.

The DVD release I have has "We're a Couple of Misfits" in the show, and includes "Fame and Fortune" as an extra. When I was little, "Fame and Fortune" was the song being used ... I never knew about the full version of "Misfits" until I bought the cast album. You aren't crazy!
