overthinking... the duck tales theme song 

the way that the songwriters broke up this clause over the count in the ducktales theme song is really brilliant imo

tales of derring-
do, bad and good
luck tales

elsewhere in the song (as is the "default" I think in English-language lyrics), measure boundaries more or less line up with syntactic constituents. but here the measure boundaries break up a word (derring-/do) AND a strongly collocative adjective sequence embedded in a noun phrase (good/luck)

overthinking... the duck tales theme song 

here, orderly syntax submits to the music's propulsive, machine-like form, mirroring both the formulaic nature of the typical Duck Tales narrative, and the show's sometimes nightmarish and subversive themes

was only thinking about this because imo this hocket very strongly suggests in the opening bars that it is going to become a cover of the duck tales theme song mearaoreilly.bandcamp.com/trac (it does not become a cover of the duck tales theme song)
