Is that a " YES" i hear on FTLOG?

#1 Post by davemeetsworld » Fri May 23, 2003 7:57 am

hey guys, is it just me, or on the part in FTLOG just before the ending ( you know, the muffled run), is there someone shouting " yes" or something, because sometimes i can hear it, and other times i cannot? It depends on what sound system i listen to it on

I noticed this after a year of owning the CD. It clearly is Steve saying "YES!". That's one of the thing that I love about Steve's music, that after hearing the albums tons of times, you can discover little hidden things like this one.

That is most definetely Steve saying "yes"....
He had been struggling so hard to get that whole song down, and he finally nailed it. He was so happy he couldn't hold back, and out came a "Yes!".
And I think we all agree.....
:D

I don't have the CD here, but it's at the very end of that amazing run, at the end of the "solo".
It's muffled and in the background (as you would expect, it was picked up by the mic in front of the speaker cabinet, with Steve standing across the room, or something....)
Personally, I would have done more than scream yes after playing something like that.
I think I would have peed my pants.......!
:lol:

Hmm, being that Steve is such a packrat when it comes to audio, it wouldn't surprise me if he just happens to have that exact sound in his "library"....

Hehe, I noticed that a couple months ago, so I went listning to the backing track and it's on there too (easyer to hear). But like RAI said, I wouldent be surprised if it was meant to be there. Unless it was an error and that a microphone in the studio caught that "YES!!!" and Steve thought it was cool and kept it. But one thing is for sure, if we can hear it, thats because it was meant to be heard.

If you also listen at the end of the cutting heads solo, right after Eugene is done and before "Jack" starts to play, you can hear the croud mumbling... but put the volume real loud on that part.
It sounds more like a loop made from a weird noise thats speeding up and down giving the effect of hearing people mumbling.

It's always fun to figure out subtile stuff like that, specially when you've heard the song 10 million times already and tought you knew it from head to toe.

Actually, that's not what I meant...
:)
What I meant was that Steve was across the room when he recorded it, and just had a spontaneous outburst when he nailed the part he wanted.
Later on he heard it, thought it was cool, and left it in there.

Party on, Garth!

Yeah, thats exacly what I said in the next sentence, it was probably an error that was kept :wink:
