Kid for Today (6:20)

Cover of In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country

From In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country and 6 other releases

It has been suggested that the percussive clicking noise heard throughout Kid For Today is the sound of a slide projector.

“Strawberry Fields Forever” by The Beatles includes a drum fill featuring a distinctive tambourine at 0:57; this seems to be the source of the drum loop beginning at 3:00 in Kid for Today. The sample is slowed down slightly and only uses the left channel.

In 2002, the song “Kid For Today” was featured in a BMW 7 Series commercial for British television.
