* DeathByChildbirth: "A Beginning from an End" initially describes a girl that reminds the narrator of an ex-girlfriend that suddenly left him. A spoken interlude ''a la'' "Dead Man's Curve" then reveals that the ex-girlfriend actually died in the hospital while giving birth to the girl that was described earlier in the song.

** ''Pop Symphony No. 1 (in 12 Hit Movements)'' features covers of Jan and Dean hits in an easy listening style quite similar to that of the Hollyridge Strings, a studio orchestra that specialized in covers of pop artists such as Music/TheBeatles and Music/TheBeachBoys.

* LongTitle: "The Anaheim, Azusa & Cucamonga Sewing Circle, Book Review and Timing Association" probably set a [[{{Pun}} record]] for one of the longest titles to be printed on a 45rpm record label.

* LongTitle: "The Anaheim, Azusa & Cucamonga Sewing Circle, Book Review and Timing Association" probably set a [[{{Pun}} record]] for one of the longest titles to be printed on a 45rpm record label. Both the picture sleeve for the single and the cover of ''The Little Old Lady from Pasadena'' album (which includes the song) had trouble with that title, being forced to bend the text to make it fit inside.



* RecordProducer: Jan Berry produced and arranged most of the duo's records himself.

* RecordProducer: Jan Berry produced and arranged most of the duo's records himself. Their producers during their years at Doré Records were the then-little-known Herb Alpert and Lou Adler; Alpert later founded A&M Records and became famous for his Tijuana Brass albums, while Adler gained fame as a record producer, most notably at Dunhill Productions (later Dunhill Records) with The Fantastic Baggys, Barry [=McGuire=] and Music/TheMamasAndThePapas.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the choruses of "Bucket T", they can clearly be heard singing [[ClusterFBomb something else that rhymes with "bucket"]]. The cover by Ronny and the Daytonas (of "G.T.O." fame) makes it even more obvious.

Their full names were William Jan Berry (19412004) and Dean [[EmbarrassingMiddleName Ormsby]] Torrence (1940 ), and they first met playing high school football together in Los Angeles. Berry first came onto the pop scene with 1958's "Jennie Lee", recorded with Arnie Ginsberg as "Jan and Arnie" due to Torrance getting drafted into the U.S. Army Reserve. Berry and Torrance scored their first hit as a duo with "BabyTalk" in 1959, and kept singing while going through college at UCLA (unlike the Beach Boys). However, tragedy struck in 1966 when Jan crashed his car a short distance near Dead Man's Curve in Beverly Hills, suffering brain damage but retaining his genius-level intelligence, but the duo had a comeback in the early 1970s. Berry died in 2004, but Torrence continues to tour and give interviews.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Despite being one of the preeminent surf-pop acts in their time, they're nowadays remembered mostly as a footnote in the history of the Beach Boys, [[MisattributedSong for whom they are often confused]]. It should be noted that while Jan and Dean (Jan in particular) were talented songwriters in their own right, many of their biggest hits were written at least in part by Brian Wilson - meaning someone trying to acquaint themselves with Wilson's surf music songwriting repertoire would have to listen to a lot of Jan and Dean!
