The record continues the unorthodox arrangements that the band had become known for, while moving in a softer direction than their previous work. Good For Your Soul featured an increased diversity in songwriting and instrumentation from previous Oingo Boingo records. Several pieces were recorded as demos but omitted from the final album, remaining officially unreleased. Two outtakes, "Lightning" and "Cool City," would be resurrected for their next album release, So-Lo , in The song "Lost Like This" was also written and recorded during these sessions but did not surface until many years later on the album Boingo , in a new orchestral arrangement.
The instrumental track "Cry of the Vatos," named after drummer Johnny "Vatos" Hernandez, contains a back-masked message jokingly promoting Christianity to its listeners. The music video accompanying "Nothing Bad Ever Happens" depicts the band performing on a paradise island; Elfman appears watching TV, unaware that his house is being robbed behind him, referencing the lyrics of the first verse.
He finishes taking a bath, before the tub catches fire, and catches sight of guitarist Steve Bartek being carried down the street by a lynch mob, but decides to ignore. The paradise island from the start of the video then appears to get hit by a nuclear bomb while the band continue playing.

Moreau" in "No Spill Blood. Once again all the tracks were written by Danny Elfman who saw a huge growth spurt from the previous album but he cleverly retained all of the traits from the past and merely built upon and around them. Two of the more unusual tracks for the band were the two closers "Pictures Of You" which found Elfman sort of crooning in a Gothic Cure sort of way with a female voice in harmony. The title track that comes directly after really shows off the dual nature of the band, being able to create strange, manic songs, while also having the capability to make some truly beautiful, catchy stuff, which is what I find this song to be, especially with the nearly ethereal nature of the synths.
