Dolenz revealed that one of his personal favorite song on the album is "House Of Broken Gingerbread," which is the fourth track featured on the collection. "Producer Adam Schlesinger wrote it with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon. It is just a wonderful song," he said.
He noted that the album's closing tune, "Merry Christmas, Baby" channels his musical roots, which include such diverse artists as Otis Redding, Johnny Mathis, Sam Cooke, Little Richard, Fats Domino, and Jerry Lee Lewis.
