Default No Way Back

At 1:23 into the song, there is the unmistakable sound of a phone ringing. Is that deliberate?

I think it's some sort of instrument myself, but I definitely see where you're coming from.

I don't see any unusual credits on the jacket... such as, "On the AT&T Unity 7100...... our manager calling to beg us to add dates to the tour while we were recording the song."

jesus! now that you mentioned I remember, everytime I listened to it I heard a phone ringing as well, I kept looking around to see if there was really one. that's weird. never mentioned to anyone because I thought it was just me.

I'm too lazy to go check it out (I'm in the living room full of people watching TV, I would have to get up to find a headphone =P) but I think it's a guitar chord that ended up sounding like a phone ring.

I must have the non-phone ring version of No Way Back.

You can hear someone taking a shit around the 3:18 mark.

All I hear is a little clash noise that starts at 1:22 and extends to 1:23.

I can't hear it, but i've always heard someone say my name (Ryan) in a certain part of "Wonderboy" by Tenacious D at 56 seconds in or so. I know it's not there, but I hear it every time.

I've been hearing it since 2005 and I hate it.
I think I posted about it back then.

Completely out of place because you know... it is a phone.

I know what you mean. When I listen to The Corrs, "All The Love In The World" there is a very clear passage at 2:41 where a voice says, "Tom, have sex with your Mother."

It's spooky. As hot as my Mom is, I don't know if she's up to it. I'll have to be extremely discrete in how I aproach the subject with her.

The most annoying one for me is on "Overdrive" after the first chorus. There's that "beeeeep!" that sounded just like my CD player's battery dying. Not really a problem anymore, though, because I 1)don't listen to music on a CD player anymore, and 2)never listen to the song.

I don't like Overdrive very much either but I had never heard that "beep" until somebody brought it up. After you know it's there though it's clear as day.

The Overdrive beep is prominent though, it's meant to be there.
