  • ^a "Class" was filmed but cut from the final editing of the movie. The footage was later included on the DVD release and in the film's broadcast television premiere on NBC in 2005
  • ^b "I Move On" is a song which Kander and Ebb wrote directly for the film adaptation, thus is not featured on the original Broadway musical.
  • ^c Songs not featured in the film, bonus tracks.
  • ^d A music video was released for the song but it was never officially released as a CD single for a worldwide market, as promoting it would have been impossible due to the singer's recently announced battle with breast cancer at that time. When Anastacia was shooting the video she had a 40 °C (104 °F) degree fever.
