This funny song in a medium tempo range starts with a squeaking door and a deep laughter. Is it spooking in the house?
Often there is a murmur in the dance crowd when the intro starts and the majority of the dancers don't know the song: Is that a Swing tune? Yeah, it is!
There are strings and a choir supporting the orchestra which gives the song an additional mood.
I like this song. Steve Leggett on allmusic label it “utterly goofy”. Make up your own mind!
