Not intending to be controversial and for some it might even be stating the glaringly obvious unnecessarily. But the main riff on here is ever so reminiscent of the xylophone chords on Depeche Mode's - Everything Counts apart from the last couple of notes on the latter's middle eastern influenced clarinet sound.

Coincidence? Probably. Influenced by? Maybe. Vice versa even? Hmmm, not sure, improbable but not impossible. Both were out around similar times. Music is also a borrowed art, it doesn't always come from thin air. Whether that's a conscious process or not. Whatever the case, the riff in my opinion is one of the most earwormish sounds of the 1980s. The Vocoder Mix and the stripped down Haunted Mix are probably my favourite mixes because they lean even further into the Electro sounds of Hip Hop which I've always been positively biased towards. But the monstrous sounding MUWAHAHAHAHAHA laughter on the Extended Mix is still freaking hilarious :)

Awesome record that can be had for dirt cheap. Super-catchy horror-cheese synthline, menacing bass creeps. Pure win. My money is on the Vocoder Version as the best cut on this 12"
