  • This is quite different than the later re-recording for the (She Was A) Hotel Detective (EP). It is in a higher key, features a different drum program and different synths.
  • The mix of the song that appears on the 1985 Demo Tape is slightly different to the other tapes. It's got a much wider stereo mix, and the accordion fade out is removed.
  • The synthesizer used for the riff is a Fairlight CMI, and its preset sound "dooo1".
