Sounds Familiar

The melody to the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" is based on the sound of French police sirens and if this is something everyone knew but me I am just gonna go hide in the corner somewhere and die of shame. Ugh, I've heard this thing a MILLION times and it's JUST NOW APPARENT TO ME? Next you're going to tell me there's something going on in the FedEx logo.

The 13 yr old clued me in to the FedEx thing. I almost got into an accident the first time I tried to see it.

On a (sort of) related note, the drumming in The Feelies' "Raised Eyebrows" is based on the sound of a fireworks grand finale. Once you hear it, you really hear it.

I thought it was based on E. Honda's rapid punching move.

once you know that Mick Jagger is singing background vocals on Carly Simon's "You're So Vain", you can't stop noticing it.
