Added DiffLines:

* CreepyJazzMusic: The film has a moment when Elfman, as the Devil, kidnaps the hapless protagonist and orders him to kidnap a girl. All this is set to a key-changed and lyrically modified version of ''Minnie the Moocher'' called ''[[https://youtu.be/WACN2cdr4wc Squeezit the Moocher]]'' performed by The Mystic Knights of the Music/OingoBoingo as his imps. No, we didn't make that up.
