View Full Version : OCR00203 - Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 'Late Night Lullaby'
05-14-2002, 11:57 PM
Fun clean sounds and a nice stereotypical dance beat make this a
nice simple track to listen to. It's by no means a breathtaking arrangement
or amazing hardware processing, but it's still fun to listen to.
Man, how did this get on OC Remix?? The bass line is completely non-harmonic and doesn't complement the melody at all, although that doesn't seem to be an issue nowadays. After two loops (well yeah, the pitch bend was kinda interesting...), I started to wonder if anything was gonna happen, and then suddenly...oh wait, that's just him hitting random notes in the general direction of the melody. After that's finally over, he goes back to the original loop, and I wait for something else to happen. Oh my goodness, look, he raised the pitch! I can't believe it, it's never been done before, this is a total breakthrough, it's going to change the world of remixing forever!!

Keep in mind that this was one of the older remixes on the site: Notice
the OCRID# of 203. Back when this site was new it was a big thing to get
ANY new content, so there are some real stinkbombs back in the archives
of the site (Alas, i weep for Bad Tuna).

Although slightly repetitive, this ReMix is really cool. It made me get up and dance. Literally. Great bass, classic percussion, very nice.

Mmmmm... generic mediocrity. You know the drill. Techno-download-if-you're-a-fan-of-the-game-but-still-completely-disposable. The best part of the song probably is the title, which I find a bit humorous. 3/8

When I first started this one up, I realized for the first time: not ALL remixes on this site are good! I knew the day would come...the day I would come across a remix I absolutely hated. Well, this ISN'T the case. I like this one quite a bit. VERY repetitive, VERY basic, and KINDA good. Put simply, this mix is simple. Nothing big and flashy. No voice samples. No guitar, either. Just a barbaric-in-style remix that still "partly" satify. Not such a bad remix, and maybe I think that because of the change in sound at 2:58; thats pretty neat. For a while only, though.
Final verdict... MY SCORE-- 7.1/10

Not bad. Nothing outstanding, perhaps a little repetitive, but still interesting for the first listen.

I think the others have pretty much said everything about this mix, but I was just wondering why Zelda's Lullabye is listed under Ocarina of Time, when it first appeared in A Link to The Past, when you rescue Zelda and the maidens.

Aside from "A Storm in the Desert" this is the best Zelda song on the entire website. It has a nice, easy beat, and it stimulates the imagination. On a music video this would go well with lots of blue and black.
It's much to classic techno. But again why is the bass out of key of the melody. I really don't like the sound used for the melody either. In my opinion this is a bad remix. Not a fan of the key change in 3:05 because it's still off key of the bass.
Yup. Just as I thought. I came here to confirm what I thought about the mix. You all seem to agree.
This is a ghetto mix.

I liked it.
It brought back soo many memories. lol. I love the game and I love the remix. Good job :wink:
i think its pretty good ... nice and clean
What is that supposed to mean St3ph3nt4n?

Is there an arguement coming on? It was a good piece and he was being totally honest of how he felt.
It is true! It is clean and nice :D
I meant that I didn't know what s/he meant by "nice and clean".
I'm not seeing it.
Maybe one can clarify or elaborate?
And for the record, I'm not argumentive. I'm debatable.

You make no sense.
08-16-2005, 09:45 PM
Of course it does. I understand him.
It didn't sound all scratched up and the real tune wasn't hidden under bells and whistles.
I am defidently a fan of the game and I don't like it when the origional is lost to trumpets and electric guitars. We still got to hear the origional before then the remix.
Do you understand now?
I still believe this mix is rather unimaginative and unengaging. I'm wise enough to realize other people's opinions and not dispute them...too much.

Alright! Everyone is intitled to an opinion. And that one happens to be yours.

This is a really fun remix! The pitch bend at 0:29 was really cool, and the font used for the melody sounds very clean and smooth.
...Wait, then what? WHAT IS THAT??? THAT BASSLINE DOES NOT FOLLOW THE MELODY AT ALL???? WTF???
I'm sorry, but there's no way this remix should be on this site. It's a joke. The bassline is a standard techno I/IV/V progression, the "solo section" at 1:03 is just a random barrage of notes. They don't remain true to the original chord progression of the song or the completely random chord progression of the bassline.
ARGGG...That bassline just KILLS me, it's COMPLETELY non harmonic?!?!
I normally don't review remixes, but every time this remix comes up on my playlist I just get completely pissed off, I don't know why. The production value is clean, but nothing is done with the melody at all. There is nothing brought to the song at all, there is no imagination, there is no arrangement. There is never any harmony present, nothing interesting is done with the melody (except for that masterfully handled keychange).
Why is this on the site..?
03-17-2007, 11:32 PM
Well...thank God he subbed it when he did. :-D
04-04-2007, 06:48 PM
its really neat when youre high, at least
Seeing some of these reviews has sortof scared me into not wanting to hear this one... but here goes..
yes, this is pretty bad.

I wanted to like it, because I like the original song. The issue is that this IS the original song. It has a beat in the back to remind you it's a remix, but it's not a very strong beat. The key change near the end just doesn't strike me as a big enough change to change my mind.
I won't be downloading it but I can see why it's on the site. 2000? I didn't even show up until 2 years after. Years change and with it, quality.

I freaking LOVE this remix! I love old club songs from the 90's so this song really hits me good, thanks for making this!

Bahahahahaha. It's got everything working against it, and yet... I gotta admit, I don't hate it.
I give it some credit. It made an attempt at working out an arrangement. And that would been a decent succes, if it wasn't so goddamned hilariously out of tune. The lack of harmony in this is beyond what I thought was possible in the OCR database. The SNES-era samples are far, far too shrill, and to go up a key was a disasterous move. The playing with pitch was a nice small addition, but it doesn't do much to save the mix.
I can't deny, however, that I did bop along to this. It's a celebration of trashiness, of which I stand by diligently. Just don't let standards ever drop to these levels ever again. EVAR!
