Analysis

Key: E Major
Time Signature: 4/4
Tempo: 90 BPM
Length: 1:53
Release Date: May 19, 2009
Update: WAR!
Composer: Mike Morasky

Likely for consistency, this song uses the same melody as the main theme and Playing With Danger as its basis. Differentiating this song is its lower tempo and note density, instead opting to place emphasis on its chords. To highlight this, there is very little in the way of melodic lines for the song, with heightened importance placed on the drums as it throws in more fills than typical. More melodic parts only really start with the guitar and a few flourishes from the brass. The introduction of such elements segues into a small saxophone solo, which acts as a call-and-response to the trumpet solo that follows. A drum interlude carries the rhythm while acting as a melodic break, before the saxophone carries the song back to its regular parts.
