  • This song was concocted when John Linnell listened to "Thunderbird" backwards and interpreted his reversed vocals into lyrics. The track itself is not "Thunderbird" reversed; instead it is Linnell, without accompaniment, singing the lyrics he heard. Although "Thunderbird" was performed live in 1999, it was not formally released until 2004.
