* CreditsGag: A few oddball titles for people. Instead of producer, Don [=DeVito=] is credited as "Captain in Charge". Larry Kegan (an old high school friend of Dylan's who was wheelchair-bound) was "Champion of All Causes". Two members of Dylan's staff, Arthur Rosato and Ava Megna, are "Second in Command" and "Secretary of Goodwill". Mary Alice Artes (his girlfriend at the time) is "Queen Bee".

** "Where Are You Tonight", as befitting the final song of his last album before his Christian phase, has a few. The title had already been used as a recurring line in [[Music/BlondeOnBlonde "Absolutely Sweet Marie"]]. It uses a similar chord progression and lyric structure to [[Music/Highway61Revisited "Like a Rolling Stone"]]. And there are some similarities to [[Music/BloodOnTheTracks "Tangled Up in Blue"]], with lines about lovers meeting and breaking up, references to parents and strippers, and the song opening up with the narrator wondering about his old lover.

Added DiffLines:

* ProductionForeshadowing: It's been argued that some of the album's lyrics have covert Christian themes, perhaps indicating that Dylan was already pondering the religion even before he formally converted. It's worth noting a possible BilingualBonus: "Señor" means "mister" in Spanish, but it can also mean "Lord".


** "Señor" also mentions Creator/JackKerouac's ''Mexico City Blues'' by name.
