  • This is quite different than the later re-recording for Flood. The main differences are that this version is in a higher key, features several lyrical variations, and has a much more minimalist arrangement. Also, the song ends with Flansburgh singing a series of very strange vocal inflections of the song title.
  • The drum track of this song is directly taken from the 1979 drum beat album, DrumDrops Volume One by David Crigger and Joey D. Vieira. The track is titled "Bluegrass Country", and can be listened to here.
