  • The "Radio Mix" of the song is essentially the same as the album version, however there is little to no programming on all vocals making them noticeably more prominent. With the instrumentation, the guitars are more prominent throughout, though most noticeably so during the intro. The overall song is simpler, rougher and harder than the album version.
  • The interview was filmed at SonyBMG Studios in New York on August 3, 2006 for AOL® Music. It touches on the creative process on recording The Open Door and Amy & John's musical opinions.
