In het begin en op de achtergrond van de gevoelige ballad "Castles in the Sand" zijn typische strandgeluiden te horen, zoals golven en meeuwen. Het liedje (plus een instrumentale versie) verscheen in juni 1964 ook op het album Stevie at the Beach. Dit album heeft het strand als thema, net als de films Muscle Beach Party en Bikini Beach, waar Wonder dat jaar in te zien was.[5]
