The title track features an intentionally mangled rendition of the song "Over the Rainbow", popularly known as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, as sung by the main character Dorothy Gale portrayed by Judy Garland. It is the inspiration for the title of the track, and thereby the album.
