HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

For the first 17 seconds of the song, there is another completely different song playing. What is that? Does anyone else here that? At the very begining, there are words, but I can't decipher them....

You need to turn the volume WAY UP in a set of headphones. Be careful to turn it back down at 17 seconds, because the song starts.

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

It reminds me of Mexican Ranchero music.

There. In addition to getting credit for discovering what the song was, your credit report also gets bumped up fifty points and you have $1,000 dollars more credit limit on your credit card.

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

On the FAQ, if I remember right, it's some kind of Indian chant/dance or something. But it's in the FAQ.

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

I just wanted to point out, now that those videos of the Undertow recordings have been unearthed, it looked like a Mexican Ranchero band.

Somebody mentioned it above, but there didn't seem to be a final decision.

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

If anyone would've bothered to look at the FAQ, it has been described as traditional Andean mountain music. It is also the music from some spanish song of which i forget the name. Oh, and it isn't "hidden".

Ok - off to listen to "Oruro Tierra De Ensuenos" or "Fiestas De Mi Pueblo" by Suenos. I love that bit at the beginning!

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

My parents used to listen to this album when I was younger, I specifically remember hearing it when having barbecues. The song sounds EXACTLY like the ones on the album. I will have to ask my dad the name of the album...

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

If think they put this music there at the beginning of the song as a sort of joke. When you play the album pretty loud, you would think that your neighbours are playing folk music. You would put your stereo on pause and then you'd realize that the folk music is actually a part of the album (wtf?). Pretty funny joke :)

Re: HIDDEEN MUSIC at the begining of Crawl Away....

Well, there's something fairly obvious about it.

TOOL begins by starting the intro of Crawl Away 17 seconds late. In the meantime, you're thinking, "wait, when's it starting?"

You crank it up. You hear an irish jig/carnival song/mexican music/whatever be your prediction, and when those seventeen seconds are up, Crawl away comes down hard on you to blow your eardrums for a few good seconds.

I think it's a way to express and feel surprise.

For a while, I thought something kind of strange over the song---I thought that maybe the low background music was probably representing the act of "crawling away" which may be defined in some other fine thread, and the loud noise following it being the moment when the thing/person crawling away is caught and dragged back.

I guess that's kind of analyzing it musically.
