  • The "hook" from "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang, featuring a chorus singing "yahoo!", appears throughout the song.
  • Synthesizer chords are a sample of "Make That Move" by Shalamar - this also appears throughout the song.
  • Pitched-up spoken vocals are heard in alternating channels every two beats. The "lyrics" are hard to decipher.
  • An ascending glissando on a harp is heard periodically.
  • The version of "Smokes Quantity" appearing on Music Has the Right to Children may share a heavily-flanged sample with "The Way You Show"; however, the resemblance on both tracks may just be due to the use of the same effect rather than a common sample.[1]
  • The drum fill used at 0:51 and elsewhere in the song is the exact same drum fill as the one in the entirety of "R35TT A07".
