Music Trivia -> Hidden Tracks -> A

Ever since there has been music on recorded mediums (vinyl, casettes, CDs) groups with a sense of humour have placed funny snippets or entrie songs on their albums without a mention in the credits.

Entries Beginning with A

"after Star Strangled Banner," Blue Meanies
Following the band's jokey mangling of our national anthem and a few minutes of silence, there is a performance of "Pop Goes The Weasel" on a cheap Casio keyboard...for an interminable 15 minutes.
Agrimorfee
"Alarm sound," U2
Many copies of their 1993 album Zooropa have an alarm sound hidden at the end. If you play the last track (track 10 "The Wanderer") and wait for it to finish at about 4:41, silence follows and the hidden alarm sound begins at 5:15 and the entire track finishes at 5:41. This alarm sound is apparently the same sound that radio DJs hear after there has been too much dead air in the studio. Interestingly, they later hid one second of the same sound as an intro to an easter egg of the song 'Elevation' on their Elevation 2001 DVD, and another warning sound all together (this one identifable as an air drill siren) features an an easter egg on the Zoo TV: Live from Sydney DVD (the DVD of a performance on Zooropa's associated tour).

"All By Myself," Green Day
long after F.O.D has stopped playing

"Already There," K's Choice
On the "Almost Happy" album the last song titled "All" has a hidden acapella track entitled "Already There".
Rad
"Ambient," Linkin Park
After "Part Of Me" (from Hybrid Theory EP) finishes, static plays. After this finishes 6 minutes later, this track plays. Some fans call it "Secret" - it is similar to "Session" from Meteora.
A Stranger
Directly after Aerials ends
Jim
"Attention CD listeners," Tom Petty
On Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever, there is an extra track after "Running Down A Dream", with Tom Petty announcing that this would have been the space where tape cassette and vinyl LP owners would have to stop what they were doing and turn the record/tape over. He is accompanied by various unidentified persons imitating barnyard animals.
Agrimorfee
"Auld Lang Syne," Flatulina
On the CD "Flatulina's Fabulous Holiday Spectuacular" only nine tracks are listed, the last being called "Auld Lang Syne" That ninth track is indeed "Auld Lang Syne" but with miscellaneous instrumental accompanyment by unidentified instruments, and only a light to moderate presence of the rare tonal flair that Flatulina blasts as only she can do. THEN, the CD player's display progresses to "10" and the track timer resets to "0:00", and after a pause Flatulina pulls out all the stops and does an final rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" that is her version of a capella (or should it be "fa** capella" or "a casmella"?). Suffice to say that it is nothing that Milli Vanilli or anyone else could add anything to by lip-syncking. Nowhere on her CD does Flatulina do "Feliz Navidad", but with all her songs she adds a twist that Jose Feliciano surely never dreamed of -- she wishes us a Merry Christmas from the bottom of her heart AND vice-versa! If the CD were a contest to see how loudly and heartily she could do it, the final and hidden "Auld Lang Syne" track would certainly be where she scores a come-from-behind victory!
