- Covered Up: Notable in that two original versions exist from the same time frame: Cracker released their version of "Sick of Goodbyes" (co-written by Linkous and Cracker leader David Lowery) around the same time it appeared on Sparklehorse's Good Morning Spider album. The two versions are roughly the same in popularity.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Gold Day.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Knives of Summertime, Sick of Goodbyes, King of Nails, Rainmaker... the list goes on.
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: His cover of Galveston features the lyrics "Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying/Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun..."
- And then there's Pig. "I wanna try and die, I wanna try and die..."
- Tear Jerker: Mark's death. Song-wise, "Sad and Beautiful World" definitely counts.
- "Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain" will never fail to bring a tear to your eye.
