I once read somewhere that there is a sample of a Bulgarian? female choir in it too.

I wonder why Van Diemen's Land is in there - lyrical connection? musical connection?

"Van Diemen's Land"

Hold me now, hold me now
Till this hour has gone around
And I'm gone on the rising tide
For to face Van Diemen's Land

It's a bitter pill I swallow here
To be rent from one so dear
We fought for justice and not for gain
But the magistrate sent me away

Now kings will rule and the poor will toil
And tear their hands as the tear the soil
But a day will come in the dawning age
When an honest man sees an honest wage

Hold me now, hold me now
Till this hour has gone around
And I'm gone on the rising tide
For to face Van Diemen's Land

Still the gunman rules and the widows pay
A scarlet coat now a black beret
They thought that that blood and sacrifice
Could out of death bring forth a life
Yes, there is a choir singing in the second verse. They sing the exact same thing as the guitar hits after Bono says, "Wake Up...." BAM BAM, "Wake up Dead Man" Ba dum dum..." The choir doubles that. At u2wanderer.org they guy on the RTSS forums had stated he could hear a choir and that it fit in, something may have been originally used as a background in the chorus, but they later changed their minds maybe?


I also discovered, and I think, so don't quote me on this, but Miami is played in reverse as well. The drum track is evident, and the spoken words in the background, the monotone, when reversed sounds like Bono speaking the lyrics of Miami.


There's another section in the 3rd verse before the last chorus (Jesus, were you just around the corner), where I can hear what sounds like Larry saying "Passengers was a mistake," with Adam responding, "You're just jealous".

I can't quite tell if that is what is being said exactly because there's still lots of other noise (.....the actual song....) playing in the foreground. But I do know it's Larry's and Adam's voice. I can hear it in the left channel when it's recorded that way and played in both channels with certain levels on and certain levels off.

That would be soo hilarious.

But seriously, could anybody post the 'cleaned up' versions of this song (both forward and backwards played)? I'd be very interested to hear your version U2Fan101, as you seem to hear many hidden things I can't hear.

U2Fan, what program are you using? Can Audacity take out all these layers individually? I downloaded it once just to reverse stuff, but I never really played around with it.

This stuff sounds awesome. I love hearing about & finding these random things!

Wow! WUDM in reverse sounds so freaky and cool!

Thanks for posting this link for Audacity!

I still can't hear Van Diemen's Land though!

In order to hear Van Diemen's Land you need to remove Bono's vocals. It cuts in and out throughout the piece. I have a friend who has a program that will be able to cut away the vocals, guitars, bass and drums so all that will be left is everything else. He uses the same program when he mixes songs.

I'll upload the versions I have when I am at home. I'm at a friends' house tonight but will definitely get on it.

I don't think I have the tech savvy to do this myself. Can anyone post the result?

I can hear the crowd noise, and I can hear someone saying, "Adam is a butthead" somewhere in the first verse.

Even though I can hear these things, it always confuses me that so much time must have been spent on sticking all this stuff in Wake Up Dead Man, when they could have been making mixes that they would be happy with of some other songs. Still, I love Dead Man, and I don't know enough about what makes good mixes to notice much difference, so I guess it was worth it.

I was listening to Wake up Dead Man with my headphones on lastnight and I could hear what sounded like a song been played in reverse.

I can't really hear it through my regular speakers.

Thats called 'out of phase' sound - its the same thing that if you don't put your headphones in right on a 'normal' (WUDM is NOT normal) you often lose the centre channel, normally vocals.

Somewhere there is a list of everything found so far.

This song does always make me ask one question though

'With a song so advanced, did U2 really not finish pop? or was it just said cause they realised it could be a dangerous album. Its even possible the Las Vegas 'cock up' was staged to show commercial pressures breaking the band down (Cause isnt that what pops about? )

They probably just spent too much time on this one song or it was one of those songs that they kinda just thought of things and added them in at different points

I give this thread 5 golden arches and a giant swizzle stick.

U2 need to get back to their arty, hidden-weirdness selves.
