  • The soundtrack features an extended version of the TV series' theme song with new instrumental and vocal recordings.
  • The most noticeable differences between the two covers is the changes in the background of the cover, the logo, the soundtrack's title and Mary Anne's hair.

    • The 1994 release has a solid dark pink background with no symbols, the official logo as it is seen on the main book series, TV series and most merchandise, the soundtrack's name is yellow and Mary Anne's hair is short like in later books after she cuts her hair.

The most noticeable differences is the track title's coloring, and the pictures used for the BSC members. In the 1992 original release the soundtrack title is dark pink while the re-issue is yellow. Kristy's and Jessi's pictures are the only ones not altered between the two releases, while the re-issue uses Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, Mallory and Dawn's pictures use the images on the soundtrack's cover.
