|Tommy James and the Shondells singles chronology|
"Mirage" is a song by Tommy James and the Shondells released in 1967 on Roulette Records.
Mirage was recorded for the I Think We're Alone Now album.
During a songwriting session producer Bo Gentry accidentally inserted a master copy of the "I Think We're Alone Now" song backwards in his reel-to-reel tape player. Tommy and the group instantly liked the reverse chord progression and recorded it as "Mirage" with new lyrics by Ritchie Cordell, who had also written "I Think We're Alone Now".
The song has been covered by Leon's Creation.
