- From the Summer 1999 Info Club newsletter: "This beloved cover of the Lesley Gore hit from the '60s has been in the John's repertoire since the very beginning. Often an encore selection, it is now finally available to y'all. One of the few songs that the band busked with (along with 'Cowtown' and 'Alienation's For The Rich') on the Brooklyn Heights promenade."
- The Johns have claimed that they played "Maybe I Know" during one street performance in the 1980s. After the song finished, a woman approached them and said to them, "My grandmother wrote that song," and gave them $20. The Johns then stopped playing, and bought lunch with the $20.
- According to a 1989 TMBG newsletter, "Maybe I Know" was originally intended to be included on Flood as one of 17 songs (which ended up becoming 19).
