Did you know that the members of Queen recorded and stacked 180 different voices to create the chorus of their monumental track, “Bohemian Rhapsody”?

Often, it’s the little details like this that can transform a good song into a favorite. Stashed underneath the big hooks, quotable lyrics, and seductive grooves, these secret sounds are typically so subtle they are rarely noticed, and many times are accidents.

Technical Foam Services, one of the U.K.’s leading acoustic foam manufacturers, decided to compile 20 of these stunning anecdotes found in some of the world’s most classic tracks from the past 60 years, including tales of Paul McCartney chewing celery, Sting sitting on an open piano, and Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s attempt to sabotage the recording of the band’s debut hit “Creep.”

So whether you’re a fan of Elvis, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, or The Rolling Stones, check out the infographic below for a reason to love your favorite songs a little bit more than you already did.
