Drizzle (Firelight Smoove Mix) is one of the 10 different songs that are played during a regular game. It is the third track that is played. The tracks are played in sequence starting from Shamburger and ending with Tazer, at which point the list starts over from the beginning.

A MIDI version of the song was also composed in Cakewalk that was used in the demo version of the game. In the MIDI audio track, it was also used as the second track out of eight total. These were played in sequence starting from Shamburger and ending with Tazer, at which point the list started over from the beginning.

The track was composed by David Rippy, but since he had moved over to game design he didn't quite have the time to finish the track. As such, Stephen Rippy took over the track and finished it. He subtitled his version of the song as "Firelight Smoove Mix".

The equipment used in the creation was a Boss DSS-330 synthesizer and an E-mu ESI-32 sampler. Finally, the mixing and editing was done using SoundForge.

The song title has been confirmed by Stephen Rippy.
