Although it may have been one of the better moments on the uninspired Good Thing, "Is That You Mo-Dean?" pales into comparison with many of the B-52's' best singles and doesn't quite stand proudly on its own. Neverthless, it's a pleasant diversion, and the CD single contains an edit of the title track and two remixes -- the "liquid sky dub" and "harpapella" -- that are fun and danceable. Those two mixes, along with the "MK dub" mix of "Tell It Like It T-I-Is," are available on the 12-inch British single of "Is That You Mo-Dean?." The seven-inch single contains the single edit of the title track, with "Good Stuff" on the B-side.
