The SNES version of the song is in better quality than the DOS original due to its use of samples. The song plays a little faster than the original. However, the drum track was scaled back a bit; the ride cymbal heard in the second part of the original song was reverted to a hi-hat like in the first half. Some of the instrument designs were changed as well.

The song was arranged by Bobby Prince and then converted into Rebecca Heineman's sound driver.
