* CutSong: A version of the song "Burn You Up, Burn You Down", featuring the Blind Boys of Alabama, appeared in the initial pressings of ''Up'' given out to the press for review, but was then ultimately deleted from the CD prior to release. The song would eventually appear on the greatest-hits collection ''Hit'', in a very different mix, with a sound that more resembled the song's first appearance on ''Big Blue Ball''.
* EnforcedMethodActing: Gabriel is really being shocked by the lights he's wearing at the end of the "Sledgehammer" video.
* Creator/{{Hipgnosis}}: Did the cover art for his first three albums.
* SimilarlyNamedWorks: ''Up'' shares its name with a Creator/{{Pixar}} [[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} film]] and a {{Right Said Fred}} album.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Music/DavidBowie declined to cover one of Gabriel's songs for ''And I'll Scratch Yours''. Granted, we got Music/BrianEno instead (who's pretty awesome in his own right), but it was still pretty disappointing. Music/{{Radiohead}} also dropped out of the project.
** Gabriel's decision not to reunite with the "classic Genesis" lineup in 2007 to tour ''TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway'' may count as well.
* For the film ''Film/SayAnything'' Cameron Crowe wanted "In Your Eyes", Gabriel requested a rough cut of the film before he licensed the song. He told Crowe yes, but that he was disturbed by the overdose at the end. The producers had sent him the film ''Wired'' (a Creator/JohnBelushi biopic) instead.
