- From the Summer 1999 Info Club newsletter: "This beloved cover of the Lesley Gore hit from the '60s has been in the John's repertoire since the very beginning. Often an encore selection, it is now finally available to y'all. One of the few songs that the band busked with (along with 'Cowtown' and 'Alienation's For The Rich') on the Brooklyn Heights promenade."
- According to the Johns, after performing "Maybe I Know" during their only time busking on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade in the early '80s, a woman approached them and said that her niece, Ellie Greenwich wrote the song, and handed the band $20. The Johns then stopped playing, and bought lunch with the money.
- According to a 1989 TMBG newsletter, "Maybe I Know" was originally intended to be included on Flood as one of 17 songs (which ended up becoming 19).
