|NOTES & TRIVIA|
The 12" single contains an extra-long, alternate version of "I Lost On Jeopardy," mixed by Randy Cunningham. This 12" mix did not resurface on any subsequent domestic Al release, but it did turn up on Japan's The Official Music Of "Weird Al" Yankovic compilation. Collectors can find it on Dave Rossi's "Weird Al" Yankovic Rarities #8 trade bootleg.
The 45 is the first Al single to feature songs from two different albums.
Debuted at #83 in Billboard on June 30, 1984. It would reach its peak position a week later. It would eventually stay on the "Hot 100" for only three weeks.
