But in fairness the song's quite a good re-interpretation of a cheesy 80s classic.
My only problems with it are:
1. The thing that made the original song enjoyable was the tune and not the words (i.e. not the bit they kept).
2. The words (happy and euphoric) don't match the new tune/performance (pain-ridden, angsty).
3. The rap.
If they got rid of the rap, and the words, and put in words that fit the tune/performance, then and only then would it be OK. But of course then it would have nothing to do with the cheesy 80s classic.
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
The best comedy bit is either: a) when the wind machine gets going and it looks like Stan's hair/wig is about to blow off. b) the guitarist looking REALLY bored / thinking he is in Tenacious D c) when the rap kicks in - John Barnes eat your heart out!

Shortpacked's blog reports Bush was at Botcon:
Stan Bush, of course, brought his current bandmembers, which included Holger Fath, everybody's favorite giddy guitarist! (He's the jammin' dude on the left. Stan Bush is on the right.) They played their crowd-pleaser songs, which were basically "Dare," "The Touch," two or three other very similar-sounding songs, and then "Dare" and "The Touch" some more. There was no escape.
Yay Holger Fath. I hope he gets drawn into the background of every subsequent TF comic.
