Hit 'STOP' above and 'PLAY' below (stereo): <embed quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" bgcolor="#000" width="328" height="94" src="http://res0.esnips.com/escentral/images/widgets/flash/esnips_player.swf" flashvars="theTheme=bronze&autoPlay=no&theFile=http://www.esnips.com//nsdoc/fb710077-bcc8-40b1-90f9-a0186c73f6ac&theName=Chris DeBurgh - Don't Pay The Ferryman&thePlayerURL=http://res0.esnips.com/escentral/images/widgets/flash/mp3WidgetPlayer.swf"></embed> The weird, unintelligible speech heard during the bridge always intrigued me, so I Googled it. Turns out it's a quotation from Shakespeare's <i>The Tempest</i>. The background track has some kind of nonsense there already, but I thought it would be fun to put in the right words with some spooky FX (flanger, echo, chorusing). I also did a couple of echo-y things, only apparent in stereo.
