Sally Anthony provides examples of the following tropes:

  • All-Cheering All the Time: "Don't Fall in Love (With Me)" has Sally randomly shouting "A-W-E S-O-M-E" during the song.
  • Billing Displacement: She is usually credited as a featured artist on her own remixes.
  • The Cover Changes the Gender: "Turn the Page" has two lines in particular.
    • "You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before" turns into "and the night fills up with sin, of the men I knew the night before."
    • "All the same old cliches, is that a woman or a man?" becomes "cause that same old cliche, that a man is in control."
  • Cover Version: "Not An Addict", "This Woman's Work" and "Turn the Page."
  • Indecipherable Lyrics: A lot of Sally's songs frequently fall into this. Particularly amusing on "My Life" where this kicks in on the line succeeding "someone wise once told me." note

  • Perspective Flip: The verses in "Turn the Page" are changed from third person to first person.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Subverted in "Real Man". Upon first listen, the song is initially framed to make it seem like the singer hates her boyfriend for being feminine, but it turns out that he's a Casanova Jerkass who steals his girlfriend's stuff, abandons her at the club, and is embarrassed by her Britney Spears music.
  • Shout-Out
    • "Give Me Luv" name drops Susan B. Anthony and Carrie from Sex and the City.
    • "My Life" quotes Laurel Thatcher Ulrich with the line "well-behaved women rarely make history."
    • "Real Man" name drops Britney Spears.
  • Updated Re Release: Goodbye was re-released with "Haunting" and a third mix of the title track.
  • Vader Breath: Done at the start of "Not Now" where it eventually turns into it's own instrument for the remainder of the song.
