Started by searching ccmixter for the word “hell”.

Started pasting “hell” phrases into the DAW. Then picked a nu-disco beat. “What the hell?” pretty much fell together without much coaxing.

Swapped the downbeat (kick) and the back beat (snare) during “no need to worry”.

What the hell voices:
(1) Main “what the hell” phrase is PorchCat with Jaspertine joining in the last two per verse.
(2) “Pull the lever” is Speck
(3) “No need to worry” is Jaspertine
(4) “Screaming in your head” and “already dead” is Orrisroot
(5) The “hell, hell, hell” chorus is Speck, Stellarartwars and PorchCat
(6) “Dead” is Dave Merrick and Orrisroot

Remember to put your lyrics up to enable searches! dig.ccmixter is not search friendly but the old, reliable producer friendly ccmixter is search friendly on the sections that have not been upgraded to dig.ccixter.

If this song doesn’t get your toe’s tapping and your rump shakin’ I’ll eat my hat.

This is a nice little romp and I’m sure a few ghosts and goblins have got up and danced to this mix.
