- John Flansburgh: "The song doesn't have the classic crunchy spy chords of Bond music but the biting guitar is a hat tip to that famous intro. If there was any specific piece of music that it jumps off of I'd guess I'd point to Peter Gunn." The Johns have covered the "Peter Gunn" theme song before.
- Features Steven Bernstein on trumpet.
- No two endings of this song are alike in live performances. In concert, the end of "Spy" is improvised by the band which is led by a random "conductor" (either John).
