Mynx singles this out as a song that has special meaning to him. He told Songfacts: "'Horse' is the true story of dead friend. He lived it. I recorded it. Some people giggle when I play it live. They chuckle at first, then, after the song is finished, they feel awkward around me. They turn away. I dedicate it to Kid. His fingers were like a claw, but he showed up to play bass every night at a seedy den of debauchery with carpeted walls. He believed the song. He was a crackhead when he was younger. He committed suicide on New Years Day. The song is not about him."
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
