John Leckie

Used as intro music.

The shimmering Simone is a sublime ethereal backwards track. The majority of the vocals on Simone are Reni harmonies from a live version of Where Angels Play. All the vocals from the reversed studio version of Where Angels Play are cut from Simone except at the very end, when Ian's first few lines can be heard very low in the mix.

Simone is a female given name derived from Simon, Hebrew Simeon, meaning "one who hears".
