- Video directed by Ajax Digital Design. The video's source is a 1967 promotional film on the New York City Ballet and their founder, George Balanchine.
- According to Flansburgh, this song "was finished days before it was posted, although it was in the works for a few months and in a few incarnations."
- In a 2022 Tumblr Q&A, Flansburgh described the thought process behind the song's subject matter:
Best Regrets is completely personal-although kind of hypothetical-I’ve never met up with the person in question (thank god). Best Regrets is definitely about dread in a very ultimate way-and I do feel a level of dread as an older person that feels heavier because there isn’t a lot of skipping past it. Not trying to be a drag, but sometimes things don’t work out!
- Punk pioneer Richard Hell wrote "Betrayal Takes Two", a song on the 1977 album Blank Generation.
