- The "daddy'll sing bass/daddy sang bass" sample is from the Johnny Cash song "Daddy Sang Bass," which was written by Carl Perkins.
- All studio versions of this song feature the vocals of Margaret Seiler, though the version on the 1985 Demo Tape features a different recording, as well as a lyrical variation: "traces of your fingernails that run along the windows".
- On the double-tracked vocals in this song, Flansburgh has stated: "It is classic 80s delay (I'd assume a Lexicon PCM70, a unit we still use) set for very short delay so it's a very tight, un-blurry chorusing creating the double."
- Watch it on – Recorded live on September 10, 2001: In-store performance at Tower Records, New York, NY, recorded for Gigantic DVD (with "Meet James Ensor")
