Thom: "That song was written in... it was weird actually, it was written one of those days off you have on a tour where you literally, all you can do is sit in your hotel room 'cause there is nothing. It was a Sunday, and it was some place near Hershey - I got no idea where - and there was just nothing to do at all. And I just had this idea of someone writing a song, sending it to someone and saying, 'If I ever lose it, you just pick up the phone and play me this song back to remind me.' So that's it."

Q: "Wow... Was the song written on keyboards?"

Thom: "No, it wasn't, no. I mean that's all Jonny on Fender Rhodes, really. It was funny actually, 'cause I was listening to Farah Saunders this morning, and that's where it's all from! [laughs] And Miles Davis and all that. We just totally fell in love with the Fender Rhodes on this record."
'A Reminder' was recorded in Bath along with the rest of OK Computer, but was left off the album and released as a b-side to Paranoid Android instead.
The Czech voice in the intro was taped at a train station in Prague and says this:

Ukončete prosím výstup a nástup ... dveře se zavírají
Příští zastávka ... Jiřího z Poděbrad

Translation:

Please end up entering or exiting ... the doors are closing
Next station ... Jiřího z Poděbrad
