  • From the Summer 1999 Info Club newsletter: "This track is the story of a New Wave fan who loses her mind and comes to believe she is the famous Hollywood fashion designer. 'The accent in her speech she didn't have growing up.' The song is already a featured staple of the Giants' new show. This recording has a driving guitar performance by Dan Miller. Look for this number to appear on the next Giants CD."
  • The shout of "One More!" was done spontaneously by Dan Miller.
