- Originally known by fans for decades as an untitled instrumental, John Flansburgh explained this track on March 26, 2013 via Facebook:
It's a very obscure recording from Dial-A-Song called Heptone, celebrating the joy of riding a bike to a record store. Heptone was a record store on Flatbush Ave. that had 12" records of hip hop and UK imports of post-punk stuff. Got Malcolm McLarens' Duck Rock there, and the songs The Birthday Party and The Message.
- According to John Linnell, Flansburgh used a Moog synthesizer modified with microtonal sounds to create Heptone.
