You May Find Your Tropes Getting In The Way...

  • Alliterative Title: "Navel To Neck".
  • Face on the Cover: A close-up of Adam's face, lying in the hay.
  • Hot Librarian: In the music video for "Strip", there's a very prim, proper woman in glasses shown throughout the clip, until the end, when she flips out, kicks over a table and, you guessed it, takes off the glasses and starts to strip .
  • Homage: The album cover is fashioned after the poster for the 1943 film The Outlaw, starring Jane Russell.[1]
  • Intercourse with You: "Strip"
    When it gets so hot, the end of the day
    You may find your clothes getting in the way
    If a pretty dress hides your true desire
    Fold it nice and slow, throw it on the fire
