  • Flansburgh says:
When Marjorie Galen and I first started Hello CD Of The Month Club, producer Joshua Fried suggested we do a disc of "Hello" songs - or maybe he just wanted an excuse to cover this song. Originally recorded in the early seventies as an over-the-top Glam-rock number by the legendary Gary Glitter, the tone of this track bears little resemblance to the original. Some of the words are unintelligible on the original, and we just kind of flubbed through them on this version. They are also strangely smarmy, and look too ugly printed out, so I'll just leave that experience for the listeners.
  • For Unsupervised, the ambient noise audible during the brief pauses in the song was replaced with silence. This is most notable about 1:50 into the track.
