A special Australian tour edition added an acoustic reworking of Overkill as the first track, in response to Hay's appearance performing the song on the television show Scrubs. The track later reappeared on the 2003 album Man @ Work.


The song "Waiting for My Real Life to Begin" has been featured in a number of television series: Scrubs (sung by the cast), Dawson's Creek, The Hills, What About Brian, Cane, The Cleaner, Judging Amy (Season 2, Episode 22 'Hold on Tight' end sequence), Miami Medical, and Brothers & Sisters and A Million Little Things (2020).

The song was also featured in the films Penguin Bloom,[2] Morning Glory,[3] and Words & Pictures.[4]

In December 2005, Hay and Heather Mills digitally re-released "My Brilliant Feat" as a charity single as a tribute to the late footballer George Best who died on 25 November 2005. Proceeds went to the Donor Family Network supporting organ donor families and promoting organ and tissue donation.
