|sung by||Elina Löwensohn|
- This song was inspired by a woman who called a radio station complaining that "the mountains are in the way". The Orange Mountains mentioned in the song are located in New Jersey.
- Flansburgh said, "This recording was cooked up quite spontaneously at the end of the marathon tracking session at Unique Studio in Times Square. Romanian-born actress Elina Löwensohn, star of Nadja, a number of Hal Hartley films, and the upcoming 'The Devil When Down To Newport' video, did the voice-over. There are no samples or loops, just real records scratching along, and live radios being tuned."
