Is this song from "Repo!" 100% original?

Asked by ANef_is_Enuf (25194points) September 20th, 2010

The melody in this song sounds incredibly familiar… is this another song twisted with new lyrics to suit the movie?

Darren Smith and Terrence Zdunich (Hnnngh!) wrote the music, lyrics, screenplay and original play all by themselves. Whether they were inspired by something is another question. But it’s not just repurposed material.

Oh wow, I was listening to Repo! when I checked my Questions for You. Creepy.

I can’t remember where I saw it, but I’m quite sure there was a video where they explained that ‘Zydrate Anatomy’ was inspired by (I think) nursery rhymes and children’s playground songs. Perhaps that’s why it feels like you’ve heard it before.

Edit: Found it—http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PreSZ0e8wpE (it’s towards the end)
