The original songs "I Love You Too Much" and "The Apology Song" were co-written by Paul Williams. According to director Jorge R. Gutiérrez, when he approached Williams, the composer assumed it was because he had co-written the Oscar-nominated "Rainbow Connection" for The Muppet Movie and was surprised to find that it was because of Gutierrez's love for Williams' rock musical Phantom of the Paradise.
