  • *The debate over which state has "The Lowest Highest Point" is often disputed, and the state with the lowest highest point is incorrectly given as Delaware, when in fact, it is Florida. The reason for this mistake is reportedly from a misunderstanding[2] of an answer in the game Trivial Pursuit, in which the question was, "Which state has the lowest mean elevation", to which Delaware is the correct answer.
  • ^This track has an unclear recording location, but it appears[3] to have been recorded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts on May 17, 1997.
  • #The liner notes only show Byrne as the composer, but the song was composed by David Byrne, Chris Frantz, and Tina Weymouth.
