Joey Filspart has been one of my faithful supporters and he has been looking forward to this song for a while. AND today just happens to be his birthday so, Joey, this one is for you.
I worked on this one forever. There are so many layers of drums and it took a while to get just the right drum sounds I was looking for because, as you know, I'm not a beat boxer. Never in my life did I think that I would attempt beatboxing, let alone let anyone hear it! It just goes to show how little I know. There are so many fun elements in the original song and I wanted to represent them as faithfully as I could, such as Morrissey's plinky piano solo, and the siren and snare drum rhythm at the end. Every song teaches me something new I can do with my voice and electronic manipulation techniques- this song taught me a lot.
I hope you like it, Joey!
