Are you aware of a song that has an unintended noise recorded in it?

Like a slamming door, cigarette lighter or something like that?


Happy Christmas (again) Harvey! :)

    You can hear an airplane in the song "Black Country Woman" at the start, but Plant tells the producer to leave it in. A mic in the control room was picking it up.

    Just after 0:53 in the recording of "Louie Louie" by The Kingsmen, you can hear the drummer yell "F**K" because he dropped his sticks.

    Not many people can detect it if they aren't told about it, and thankfully the label never noticed it, otherwise the song would not have been put on the airwaves because of the censorship in the time (early 60s).

    In a few jazz albums I've listened to you can clearly hear people talking in the background, but I think they just didn't care. 

    McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster is the most recent album I've listened to that has this

    Right at the end of "Love Reign Over Me' by The Who, you can hear some clattering and clashing sounds, which is apparently Keith Moon falling over his drums.

    I don't know. I thought they used to edit those out, no? I know this one has a honking car horn in it, but I have a feeling it's fully intended.

    Or does this count? =) (second last note, right at the end of the song)
