  • JF: That song was written to incorporate a bunch of chords I had learned under the instruction of Jack DeSalvo, a guitarist I took lessons from in the early eighties. It was originally titled "I'll Remember 3rd Street" to reflect its jazzy origins, but once the recording was made with the spacey synth part its final title seemed more appropriate.
  • The very first original They Might Be Giants song. The original version, I'll Remember 3rd Street, was one of the songs played by TMBG at their very first live show.
