Good ole Alex kidd really got overshadowed by Mario in popularity, but nevertheless his first adventure in "Miracle World" still stands as an innovative and well-crafted platformer. This remix takes the title theme and basically schnazzes it up a bit, with nicer instruments and processing, using a program for Macintosh called "VocalWriter" . . big thanks to Joe Redifer for this one.

Seven seconds to start... unforgivable
Once it gets going, this is a cute little rendition of a naturally happy little tune. Sort of reminds me of a holiday, winter jam, not sure if that was intentional at all. But yeah it's kind of just a cover with nicer instruments. Not super impressive but it's nice to see Alex Kidd get some love.

Sugar high is right. This is a bit too happy for me. Though it did have a good arrangement and really perked me up after listening, it's just not my thing.

Of course, this just reminds us that we need more Alex Kidd. On the site, in our mp3 players, on our videogame consoles and in our lives in general. Although, maybe not this track specifically.
The strings are the only thing that save this. That, and the obvious nostalgia factor. Things get somewhat muddled, and the entire thing creaks with age, but bleh. At the very least it is good soundtrack material for reminiscing about the old days when this mix was considered 'cutting edge?'.

I enjoy this track. For some reason, it makes me think of the kind of thing I might hear on a Mexican kids show that I happen to have on on a Saturday morning, possibly while a little hung over.

This bring back memories of pure fustration from what i got out of the game. It seems close to the original source but over all its okay.

I really was not a fan of the game but this is pretty decent not great but decent.

This is so happy it's sickening. Bleh.
That being said, the fact that I can't stand it doesn't mean it's bad. A VERY happy setting, drums that drive the mix (they do get a bit repetative), and some decent strings. Overall, the sounds are old, and the melody's too much for me, but at the time it was probably a pretty decent mix.

Can't say i'm really a fan, but it's super old, so we'll chalk another mix up to the constantly improving standards of the site.
The strings in the middle are actually pretty nice, wish there was more of that.

If it wasn't for the judges, this is the kind of music we'd have crawling all over the site.

It's alright. Good enough to keep in the remix folder.

Er, well.. this is an old mix, so you shouldn't be expecting much. Problem is, this song is like crack- you shouldn't like it, but it's so addictive. And I hate that percussion that Joe Redifer used in ALL his mixes.
So yeah, not exactly the best, but what were you expecting?
on 2005-10-11 22:05:00
Man, it startled me. I wasn't expecting something so friggin' happy. Aaaahh.... errr, eeesh.... damn, that's happy. It kinda hurts my negativity. Errrr.... make it stop. I mean, I just see balloons and balloons. I hate the circus. Clowns scare the crap out of me. Ferris wheel thrice 'round, please. No.

Comment to this song:
Frash SHUT IT!
Frash SHUT IT
Frash THAT?S KILLING ME
* Frash screams
Frash NOT STILL FINISHED
* ^^SK^^ sicceth thy Holy Lord upon Frash's unclean soul, wiping his very existance from thy mortal realm with thy divine weapons of utter horrific destitution. And verily the Lord did speak; "Burn In Hell You Fool"
I hope I'll be still alive when I'll click the "Submit" button...

Very catchy and bubbly. It does sound a lot like the original with better instruments (as was stated). I can see a group of kids running around a playground as this song starts. It's like something right out of Kids Incorporated or The Mickey Mouse Club from the late 80's.
My only complaint? It should be longer. Around 2:30 or so. I would love to get an extended version of this.

I agree with mDuo13 on all accounts. Not really comparable to most songs done today, but a reference point in remixing history. The title's definitely fitting, at any rate.
