Do any of you know any songs that have "errors" in them, such as poor mixing, bad and disjointed editing, etc?
Here are a few that I can think of:
"Dust In The Wind" by Kansas: In the middle of the song, where the long fiddle chord is played, you can clearly hear the dropout caused by the bad tape splice when that violin loop was created.
"Sex" By Berlin: Right after singer Terri Nunn (How's that for irony) sings "I'm A Boy...." if you listen carefully, you can hear sort of a low male laugh in the background. It sounds to me like a mike was left on. Although I don't know for sure, I don't think that laugh was intentional.
"Hold On" by Wilson Phillips: Right at the opening of the second chorus, the left channel drops out about 6 dB for about half a second. For some reason, it's hard to hear if listened to directly off CD, but any CD-R or tape will pick it up, and then it's VERY noticeable.

Oh my God, I thaught I was the only person that recognized that!
Styx is one of my favorite groups!
California Dreaming - Mamas & the Papas.
Did you know the vocal chorus couldn't come in at the right time and so they recorded the song with the chours coming in 1 second before it was intended.
Turned out to be a hit!
Working Man.. The feedback from Alex Lifeson's guitar can be picked up when he takes a break in the middle of his guitar solo.
Everything on MTV, the Grammys and all boy groups and girl groups.
The Spice Girls are great!
I have two of there albums. I don't know how they sound though! I can care less about there music!

One other one I just remembered:
An obscure song from the Beatles' early career:
"Every Little Thing"
During Paul's guitar solo, he knocked over an ashtray with his guitar. I guess the "take" was otherwise perfect. So it was kept. In that song, you can hear the metallic "clink" in the background as the ashtray fell.

Superfly! YES!!!! Styx rocks!!!!!!! In sixth grade (about 1980), one of our assignments in music class was to make a video to a song. My partner's dad filmed a local hockey game for us and he and I ran it to 'Foolin' Yourself'. (I was really in to 'Grand Illusion' at the time) On the film, one of the players took a nasty check and fell down to the ice injured. It happened during the lyrics, "Get up! Get back on your feet..." The music teacher assumed we intended that and thought we were freakin' geniuses. Was pure bull$%it luck!!! LMAO! She did give us high marks for the choice of tunage.
Funny you should mention Calif. Dreamer. I had just picked that up off Napster before it went down. I have it next to Age of Aquarius. I must say one thing about hippies. They weren't right about much, but they sure got the music right!!!!!
