Writing and recording[edit]

In a radio interview,[1] Stewart recalled the origins of the song "I'm Mandy Fly Me":

The intro to "I'm Mandy Fly Me" features one of the bridge sections of the band's 1974 song "Clockwork Creep". The section, whose lyrics are "Oh, no you'll never get me up in one of these again / 'Cause what goes up must come down", is rendered soft and tinny, as if heard playing from a portable transistor radio or an in-flight audio system.
