From PinkMind
I was always sad that this is just a short Instrumental, because I really liked the melody.

A nice little interlude. It has a good groove and is a bit of respite from all the woozy psychadelica on this album.

A pleasant psychedelic twelve bar, works great in the movie, and although not much more than filler on the ep/LP, it still has a lovely quirky charm about it. Nice groove.

I dunno...I've always loved this song. Maybe it's because the mellotron, guitar A and guitar B all seem to be playing different songs. Maybe it's because it always seemed like a mixture of modern and dated. Maybe it's because it caught me by surprised when listening to MMT the first time. But I really enjoy this track and makes me fill very good every time I hear it. I know it's just me but I think this is the 5th best track on this album. 1.IATW 2.SFF 3. MMT 4. BYARM 5. Flying

It's not a song to have on shuffle on your ipod, but when listening to the album from start to finish it belongs here.

This track's "unpopularity" probably has a lot to do with the facts that 1) it's an instrumental (with wordless vocals) 2) compositionally it's very simple and 3) it's quite short.

Personally, I feel it's an underrated and delightful little gem. A soothing melody that really lifts your spirits and some nice psychedelic tape loops at the end.
