Announcement

length: 1:53
writer: Chris Grigg, Mark Hosler, Don Joyce, Richard Lyons

Naah, I don't like that.
(Well, try just putting a, even if it takes a hair more time,
Putting a little bit more....little rise thing on your exit.)
(Track 13....)
This announcement from the producers of this record contains
Important information for radio program directors, and is not for broadcast.
The first cut on this record has been cross-format-focused for
Airplay success. As you well know, a record must break on radio in order to
Actually provide a living for the artists involved. Up until now, you've
Had to make these record-breaking decisions on your own, relying only on
Perplexing intangibilities like taste and intuition.
But now, there's a better way.
The cut that follows is the product of newly-developed
Compositional techniques, based on state-of-the-art marketing analysis
Technology. This cut has been analytically designed to break on radio. And
It will, sooner or later.
For the station that breaks it first, the benefits are obvious. You
Lead the pack. Yes, no matter what share of this crazy market you do
Business in, no other release is going to satisfy your corporation's
Current idea of good radio like this one. On this cut, we're working
Together, on the same wavelength, in scientific harmony.
But remember, this cut is const
Ructed for multi-market-breaking
NOW. Don't waste valuable research with needless delay. We've done the hard
Work of insuring your success; the final step is up to you.

"I'm gonna record all the noise."
"Oh, yeah?"
"Well, you know, actually, right here in this neighborhood, we
don't have a heck of a lot of noise....
(No, we don't either.)
Um, because uh, well, you know, there's, the big city isn't around here,
(oh sure) and once, we do hear somebody shoot off a (yeah)
couple of guns in the distance, and somebody rattles some tin cans or
something, and that's about all. So, it's very quiet here..."

Supposing you're watching the Playboy Channel....

Wham.
The horrible noise comes in, and completely destroys your orgasm on
the Playboy Channel.
("Oh yes!")
There it goes again. (YEAH!) That awful interference, wrecking your orgasm
on the Playboy Channel. (YEAH!)
You've called the cable TV company six times.
("oh oh oh oh oh o

Each time the technician comes out, he can't fix the problem.
He is fired. ("flush.")
Wham! (YEAH!)
That sound is more important than you are.
That sound is more (YEAH!) important than your entire life.
And it will stop you from having an orgasm....on the Playboy Channel. (YEAH!)

Stress in Marriage

Turn on the dishwasher. The blender. The electric can-opener. And
You can be in pain. Then your wife comes in to talk, and you can't hear
Her. And she thinks you're not paying attention. Or giving you the cold
Shoulder. There's enough built-in stress in marriage ... without noise

Nesbitt's Lime Soda Song

length: 3:08
We spent a lovely summer, my wife Elaine and me,
We bought us a great big motor home, with a shower and TV,
We was camping and having a great time, watching Brokaw on Today,

Till a bee flew into the Nesbitt's Lime Soda, and we had to throw it away.
Now most of the time I'm a peaceful man, but I lost my temper that day,
Just one last bottle of Nesbitt's Lime Soda, and we had to throw it away.

I brought a case of Nehi, and Double Cola, too,
A half a dozen Upper 10's, and good old Mountain Dew,
I bought a quart of cola-a, to get me through the day,
But just one bottle of Nesbitt's Lime Soda, and we had to throw it away.

Now most of the time I'm a peaceful man, but I lost my temper that day,
Just one last bottle of Nesbitt's Lime Soda, and we had to throw it away.

We spent a lovely summer, my wife Elaine and me,
We bought us a great big motor home, with a shower and TV,
We was camping and having a great time, watching Brokaw on Today,
Till a bee flew into the Nesbitt's Lime Soda, and we had to throw it away.

Over the Hiccups

length: 1:26
vocal: Louisa Michaels
composer: Harold Arlen
lyricist: Yip Harburg
arranger: Daniel Powers
publishing: Swan's Wing Press
premiere: Judy Garland

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land ... I heard of once ... lullaby
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clou
Ds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon dro
Away above the ... away above the, the chimney tops
Where I'll find me
Somewhere over the rain, haa naa naa
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
If happy l
Ittle bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?

Sycamore

length: 2:29
effects: Ian Allen

("Firing party....ready....")
Sycamore ... is open
("...aim...fire! BANG")
That's how Sycamore opened
That's how....Sycamore is
(guns.)
I say this somewhat quietly and without fanfare, because ...
(HOW ARE YOU VOTING ON THE GUN INITIATIVE?)
Well ...
(i'm against it.)
Because ... people who like their living green and private don't
Usually appreciate a lot of fluttering flags and cartwheeling clowns
(THERE ARE 17 MILLION ADULTS IN CALIFORNIA, AND AN ESTIMATED 4
MILLION
HANDGUNS.)
(but
That's not fair!)
(WHEN NO MORE CAN BE SOLD, YOU CAN SEE THAT THE MAJORITY OF
ADULTS
WILL BE VIRTUALLY PROHIBITED FROM EVER OWNING ONE.)
When this vacation land is sold out ...
(THAT'S RIGHT!)
(DID YOU KNOW IT GIVES SOME PEOPLE A SPECIAL PROPERTY
RIGHT?)
(you mean, my neighbor can have something legally that i can't.)
So if you've always admired parts of Piedmont, or Orinda....
(WELL, YOU COULD BUY ONE, IF YOU CAN CONVINCE SOMEONE TO SELL
YOU HIS
AND IF YOU'RE WILLING TO PAY HIS PRICE.)
And regret you didn't buy there ten or fifteen years ago
Sycamore should have considerable appeal
(THAT'S RIGHT!)
It is a custom community of personalized....
(guns.)
For the private pleasure of a limited number of families
(IT ALLOWS PEOPLE WHO ALRE
ADY OWN HANDGUNS TO KEEP THEM.)
After all, you aren't going to find a finished big blue mountain
Lake in California that isn't full of boats and people, (guns.)
And surrounded by cars. This opening is just the beginning....
Of something people will want a Sunday drive through, for the next
Couple of hundred years

Time Zones

length: 5:27
bell: Ian Allen
The Autonomous Commie Republic, which is part of the Russian
Federation, is situated in the far northwest of Europe, and spreads up to
the Arctic part of the Ural Mountains. It's crossed by 9 northern
parallels. Ten fair-sized European states could be placed on its
territory. Besides indigenous residents (that is, the Commie people), there
are also Russians, Ukranians, Nenetzes, Tchubashis, and Tartars.
And now, let's go back into history a little bit. (CLICK)
A boil lying on skins behind our backs was turning the knobs of a
small transistor radio.
(".....making efforts to use radios as vehicles of the
psychological warfare. A subversive....")
And the tent was suddenly filled with an announcer's voice speaking Commie.

(Jane Jane Jane....)
Then, with music from Moscow, followed by English and French speech.
("The recording was made at the Moscow Theatre of Musical Miniatures.")
Now, back to modern times.

Sir, there are hundreds of people outside. They can't get in. You

You didn't listen even to your own two consultants of the advisory
Committee on the reactor's safeguards, when they said that this plant is
Dangerous. You don't have to talk, you don't even live here, you have no
Stake in this (??)
You told us that a Class 9 accident was incredible. Our fell

Citizens have learned too painfully that you were WRONG AGAIN! The NRC said
That the money eight years ago, money would never be a factor in licensing
This plant. Yet today self-righteously you made claims that we've got
To get this plant licensed because any delay costs the plant millions of
Dollars. Sir, may I remind you that, as tax-payers, we in this community

Mister Noisy gave up!
(SOME TIME LATER)
(munch munch munch munch munch munch......)
My house burned down this morning, and my friends they came around,
I saved the master recordings, but my girl was not to be found.
I ran inside the studios, to
save the tape machine,
But my girlfriend she was fast asleep, locked up inside some dream.
Now I'm leaving this suburban crowd and moving to LA,
To a big-time record company that will pay the AMA.
Success is just around the bend, you can hear it in m
y voice,
I wonder if this is the way to Escape From Noise.
