  • There appears to be a sample of a seagull's call at around 0:49, 2:40 and again at 3:10. However, these sound different from those sampled on "Happy Cycling".
  • Between 5:16 and 5:35 is a recording of a woman talking and laughing. These voices are sampled from an early 1970's anti-drug social hygiene film. [1] The full quote is as follows :

"Woman: ...two weeks ago for the Christmas formal. [laughs]
Man: For the Christmas formal?! That's a fuckin' sacrament!
Woman: Just so, you know, 'cause the Christmas formal last year was so funny. I thought well, maybe... I didn't like mescaline before but I had such a good time. [laughs] It was just so funny. [laughs]"

  • There appears to be a sample of a whispery, male voice saying what sounds like "Seven" throughout the song, first appearing at 00:32, then at 00:42.
  • The piano chord at 04:29 is reused as a sample in '84 Pontiac Dream.


  • "Chroma key" (or color key) is a technique used in video production to swap in a separate signal source over a particular chrominance range across the source video, e.g. in bluescreen cinema effects. [1]
  • The title could also be a reference to a musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber called "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."[2]
