Hidden In The Sand, a song by Joe Hawley, appears as a hidden track on Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum.

The music video for Hidden In The Sand debuted at the end of the 10th episode of Tally Hall's Internet Show as a hidden music video to end the first season.

Fun Facts[edit]

The song references Marcel Proust's novel In Search of Lost Time. In the novel's second volume, the Narrator becomes enamoured with a "little band" of teenage girls as they stroll by the sea.

At one time, there was some question as to how the song received the title "Hidden In The Sand" since it's called [Untitled Track] in iTunes, not listed in the track listing of the CD insert, and those words are not a part of the lyrics, either. However, in the liner notes of the Complete Demos, after the lyrics of all the songs, you'll see: "(Hidden In The Sand)".

This song appeared in Season 4, Episode 11 (AKA: The Dream Lover) of The O.C. It plays while Seth is in a dream world walking down the hallway and into his room, confused and scared. He then befriends an otter by the pool.

At the end of the track, there is a reversed recording of Marvin Yagoda saying, "Wouldn't the world be better off if we took nonsense more seriously?"


We were playing in the sand
And you found a little band
You told me you fell in love with it
Hadn't gone as I planned

When you had to bid adieu
Said you'd never love anew
I wondered if I could hold it
and fall in love with it too

You told me to buy a pony
But all I wanted was you


Played on ukulele (standard gCEA tuning).
