- An extended remix of Istanbul (Not Constantinople) by Daddy-O and Bobby Simmons, members of the Brooklyn hip-hop group Stetsasonic. They also created the Bedford/Stuyvesant Mix and the Park Slope Mix.
- The drum break fifteen seconds in is a sample from Funkadelic's (Not Just) Knee Deep, and the "This is a recording" vocal sample is from "Got to Get a Knutt" by New Birth. Notably, both of these samples had been used by De La Soul on their 1989 album 3 Feet High and Rising - an album which John Flansburgh has mentioned as an inspiration for the sound of Flood. The drum beat was used in "Me Myself and I", and "This is a recording" was used in "This Is a Recording 4 Living in a Fulltime Era (L.I.F.E.)".
- Also contains samples from Janet Jackson, "The Walk" by The Time, and "The Robots" by Kraftwerk. The "white tornado" sample at the beginning was from a commercial parody by Bob McFadden and Bryna Raeburn called "Tornado" (from the Audio Fidelity Records album "Fast, Fast, FAST Relief from TV Commercials").
