This is a great song that could have been easily overlooked because it didn’t make the cut on Eilish debut EP “Don’t Smile At Me”.

Luckily it was later included on the extended version. Billie was only 16 years old and her smooth vocals are mesmerizing, reflecting the sadness after a relationship breakup when the other person lets you go. To listen to the song click here.

This single was a remix of the song “Watch” that was originally titled “Watch & Burn,” though Eilish and Finneas decided to create two different tracks. “&Burn” is a much better version that shows her brother’s talent in sound production. To listen to the song click here.
