* LyricalDissonance: "Saucy Sailor" is (on paper) a rollicking comic tale about a sailor who tries to woo a girl, gets rejected, but then mentions that he's got money, whereupon she accepts him -- whereupon ''he'' rejects ''her'' and cheerfully swaggers off saying he'll marry someone else. The first half of Steeleye's version (the half with the words) is set to an eerie and rather menacing backdrop, and the second half is a sad little melody played on the piano with ghostly wordless vocals.

* BertoltBrecht: Slightly uncharacteristically, the band covered a couple of Brecht songs, including a darkly comic rendition of "The Black Freighter" from ''Music/PirateJenny''.
