The film takes its title from the lyrics of the song "Pleasant Street," written and performed by Tim Buckley. A selected part of the lyrics: "You don't remember what to say / You don't remember what to do / You don't remember where to go / You don't remember what to choose / You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down / All the stony people / Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes / I can't hesitate / And I can't wait / For Pleasant Street"

Director Monte Hellman's appearance came about due to the film's writer, Floyd Mutrux, who wrote much of the screenplay for Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) but lost credit in an arbitration with the Writer's Guild due to the fact he was not a member of the Guild. So Hellman agreed to appear in this film.
