|sung by||John Linnell|
- In a 2021 interview with the Guardian, John Flansburgh briefly talked about the demo's release on Dial-A-Song:
Before we got noticed we did this thing called Dial-A-Song to get our music heard. You basically rang a phone number and heard a song free of charge. A really embryonic version of Birdhouse in Your Soul was on Dial-A-Song as a one-minute demo a good year before we signed to Elektra.
- The lines "I don't feel thirty" and "Give me something to write on!" are likely references to the Van Halen song "Hot for Teacher" and its lines "I don't feel tardy" and "Gimme something to write on, man." The band has been known to break into "Hot for Teacher" during performances of "Masshole" as well.
- This demo was partially played, through Dial-A-Song, in a 1989 interview with the band on NPR's Fresh Air.
