Story behind the song
I'm fairly sure it was the marvelous Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 (Liszt) which was the main influence in coming up with this; my first all-MIDI multi-track creation (1995), using the Ensoniq ESQ1 synth. As it was all recorded in MIDI, I recently took the liberty of re-creating the song using VST instruments to get a better sound, as the ESQ1 sounds are not very authentic :) Trying to program a drum track into the Roland TR707 for the patterns I had in mind was just too hard with all the stops and tempo changes, so what you hear are real-time finger-bashing on the 707 pads - oh for a real drummer!
