What is that on the back of my Air Bud DVD!!!

Last night my daughter wanted to watch her DVD of Air Bud (the one about baseball)
The disc is a one side disc. The upside with writing is very light. Last night I put the disc in upside down, with the face (title) down.
It started to play, no picture but had audio. It was from what sounded like a classical concert. You hear a intro, people clap and the sound of a man playing the piano. The mans name on the intro is not listed in the movie credits.
What is this? Do all disc have things like this?
I couldn't listen to it all cause after about 1min it start to skip.

Must be a defective disc. Play it on the other side without your daughter, and if it plays fine without skipping, then keep it and watch it again, if it skips, just take it back and get another copy.

I've read about this sort of thing elsewhere, quite a while ago. Here, I think. Wasn't there supposed to be a Criterion disc that did something like this? Insomnia, maybe?

I would love to check this out, but since it means I would have to rent/buy/borrow/risk having to watch the movie, I will have to take your word for it.

This is the equivalent to playing a record backwards for the new millenium!

If you play it backwards it says "Paul is dead."

I tried it, but the only thing that came up on mine was a black screen with white letter saying "Good Burger: Criterion Collection, 10/28/03". It disappeared after a few seconds and I never could get it to come back. What does it mean?
