Differences[edit]

  • The end of "Theme from Flood" is changed. The original lyrics were "It's a brand new record/For 1990/They Might Be Giants' brand new album 'Flood'". However, Carrabba changed the lyrics to "It's a brand new record/of songs we've covered/We hope you like them, here is volume one". The song is also listed on the album cover as "Theme From Volume 1" to reflect these changes.
