You won't find this title by looking at any track listing. Rather, it's a name the Boys have given the brief (1:04) instrumental opening to both the "Moscow Mix" and the "expanded single version" of "A Red Letter Day," the latter of which appears on the Bilingual reissue Further Listening bonus disc. Neil wrote this somewhat Debussy-ish piece of music back in 1989, but the Boys apparently didn't quite know what to do with it until they decided to let it serve as an introduction to these two versions of "A Red Letter Day." Neil concedes that it sounds rather threatening, which may account in part for the fact that they "buried it" in this way.
