3. The atmospheric quality of the song was created through a painstaking process of sampling and layering vocal parts, and arranging them carefully on tape. They essentially used their studio mixing console like a sampler, years before they existed.
4. This audio documentary from 2009 tells the story of how the band created this distinctive sound by using many audio techniques that are now common for the very first time.
The amazing thing about this documentary is that they take the track apart, and allow you to hear individual parts of the song in isolation. They also unearth a lead vocal part that was removed from the bridge section.
5. And that’s why nothing else in the world sounds quite like “I’m Not In Love.”
