The Fugal Countdown

So this is a pretty silly post, but whatever - I had lots of fun doing it. Basically, I had "The Final Countdown" stuck in my head because I was excited about the new Arrested Development, and then it occurred to me "that guitar riff would make a really great fugue subject." So I went ahead and tried to do a fugue. It's been a while, so it it's a bit sloppy, there are probably a few voice-leading errors and parallel fifths, but it still sounds pretty good. So here you go - the FUGAL COUNTDOWN!

Sheet music here. Differs slightly from the video above - I'm fixing voice-leading errors as I find them.
