**How has no one mentioned that the most renowned part of "Hey Jude" was improvised? When the song was supposed to end, during the fade out, Paul chanted "Better, better, better!" up the scale, and the Beatles, along with the thirty-six piece orchestra accompanying them, followed him for another four minutes. And the only reason Paul did it was because he was having fun! The song went on to become the Beatles' biggest selling hit, making this the Beatles' most memorable example of this trope.

* When Music/TheByrds covered Music/BobDylan's "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere", they inadvertently changed the line "Pick up your money, pack up your tent" from Dylan's demo to "Pack up your money, pick up your tent". When Dylan recorded the song later on, he sang "Pack up your money, put up your tent, [=McGuinn=]…" in reference to Byrds bassist Roger [=McGuinn=]. Then in 1989, [=McGuinn=] covered the song along with Roger Hillman on a Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album, where he replied to Dylan with "Pack up your money, pick up your tent, Dylan…"

* The version of 'Valerie' from ''Music/BackToBlack'' sung by {{Music/Amy Winehouse}} (said to have been done in one take) starts with producer Mark Ronson saying, "All right, it's rolling." and Amy murmuring, "I'm sorry Charlie Murphy; I was having too much fun."

* Kirsty [=MacColl=] was only supposed to record the ''guide vocal'' for the female part on "Fairytale of New York" - a favour to her husband, who was producing the track. But ThePogues, who were between female vocalists at the time, fell in love with her performance.

* In [[{{Music/DirtyRottenImbeciles}} Dirty Rotten Imbeciles]]' song "Dry Heaves" on their album "Definition", the song started with a false start when Kurt Brecht and Spike Cassidy were supposed to count "1, 2, 3, 4" together but only one of them counted. It led to a conversation for the first 20 seconds of the song before finally starting. If you listen closely to before they start the song, you can hear the producer yelling "go!"

* The guitar intro to Syd Barrett's "Baby Lemonade" from ''Music/{{Barrett}}'' was apparently Syd noodling about between takes as a warm-up. When producer David Gilmour found out that the lick had been recorded, he decided to tack it on at the beginning of the song.

** What had actually happened was, Bones Howe, the engineer, punched in the vocals a bar too early, but then Lou Adler, the producer, loved it, and asked that Bones leave it in.

* The title track to Music/{{Motorhead}}'s ''Overkill'' came about when Lemmy Kilmister and Eddie Clarke bumped into Phil Taylor practicing the double-bass drums and decided to base the song on that.

* Near the beginning of [[{{Music/ThePolice}} The Police]]'s "Roxanne" from ''Music/OutlandosDAmour'', there is the sound of a piano and Sting chuckling. The dissonant piano chord was a result of Sting accidentally sitting on the instrument during recording.

Thus as [[CreditsGag an in-joke]], the liner notes credit Sting with performing vocals, bass, harmonica, and "butt piano".

** While recording "I Am the Walrus," from ''Music/MagicalMysteryTour'' Music/JohnLennon randomly flipped through radio stations and came across a BBC production of ''Theatre/KingLear''. He added snippets of dialogue from the scene being broadcast at that moment to the mix, most of which appear in the song's coda.

*** Also, at the end of "Helter Skelter" from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'' (but not in the rare mono version) you can hear Music/RingoStarr throw his drumsticks across the room and famously scream: "I got blisters on my fingers!" Your hands would be sore too, if you had played a 27-minute-long version of Helter Skelter earlier in the day. The version captured for the White Album was the band's 18th take of the night.
*** "I'm So Tired" ends with John mumbling "Monsieur, monsieur, monsieur, how about another one?", and a "pleh" that supposedly comes from his son Julian. This was one of the things that fueled the "Paul Is Dead" myth, since when [[SubliminalSeduction reversed]], it supposedly sounded like him saying "Paul is dead man, miss him, miss him!".

* Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somewhere over the Rainbow" (featured prominently in ''Film/FiftyFirstDates'', and heard ''incessantly'' at tourist hotels all over Hawaii) was recorded as a spur-of-the-moment demo session. In the last verse, he clearly mixes the verses up, singing a line from a different verse that doesn't much make sense, but he leaves it that way.

** He also missed his mark
in while the other band members "It's Gonna Be Me", where he, Justin Timberlake, and Chris Kirkpatrick were dancing.supposed to rappel down a shelf to the one below. He ended up missing it by a few inches, hitting it butt-first. The bit was funny enough for them to leave it in, including a bit of the others pulling him up.
