* PromotedFanboy: After hearing a university choir perform one of his songs, Ben Folds produced an album of university acapellas and put the school's cover on the album.
* The song "Not the Same" is based on actual events. Ben Folds was at a friend's party, some guy did a lot of acid, climbed up a tree, and when he came down in the morning he was a born-again Christian. The only major difference is that the party took place at Darren Jesse's place, not Robert Sledge's. [[WordOfGod Ben said]] that the reason for this change was because he thought "at Robert Sledge's party" simply sounded better than "at Darren Jesse's party".
* ThrowItIn: While Ben Folds Five were recording a take of "Steven's Last Night In Town", a phone rang right at the end of the last repetition of the chorus - it happened to do so on rhythm, so it was left in. If you listen carefully, you can also hear Darren Jesse {{Corpsing}} in response.
