"When I listen to Big Girls Are Best I can't help thinking, if we kept working on it for a little while longer it could have been a huge hit. It's possible that we sometimes overthink these things. She's got a smile like salvation, she's got a baby at her breast, big girls are best."

In late 2004, "Mercy", an unreleased track taken from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions, surfaced on the Internet through a fan who had been given a copy of the album containing the extra track. The track is of less than standard audio quality, but managed to become a favorite on fan websites.
