"Title"

Primary Game: The Legend of Zelda (Nintendo, 1986, NES), music by Koji Kondo

Bwahhhaaaahaaaaaaa. This is what the Zelda song would sound like if the Violent Femmes did a song based off of it, with perhaps a little lyric inspiration from Andrew Dice Clay. It's great. I love it. It's also completely insane, and is bound to piss off anyone that has a deep respect for Zelda, videogame music, or good taste in general. (Just Kidding). Any song that mentions the singer's groin over 5 times is destined to become an instant classic, right? Well, can't say much more except that this might indeed replace my own hillbilly bubble bobble ReMix as the strangest, most questionable ReMix on the site. Shael, I thank you AND your groin for this . . . interesting . . . submission :) What's that smell??? . . .

I'll just call it what it is, it's a comedy thing and less of a serious music song obviously, and for that, well, that comes down to the listener's taste in humor. Personally, I've heard far too many songs like this to be bothered and I actually think it's funny (mostly because it hits the joke and then ends all within a minute). And still, I'll give credit where it's due: small issues on the first few notes aside (which actually sound more like a recording bug than the actually guitar to me), the guitar playing reminded me of some Stephan Lynch songs in it's quick acoustic style, and is still far better than I could ever do, so well done on that. Lyrics sounds like that old game where kids take a famous song and replace every other word with "butt" or something. It's funny, and it makes me smile, and sometimes, that's all you really need from a song. Plus, vocal dubs and chipmunk run-ins for the win!

I think THIS is the most classic track on OCR. It's so hilarious :D Awesome. 5/5

I came here just to post that I remember this song, I enjoy it (even if it's more for the memory of its existence than actually listening it) and that my life has been enriched by this song. I'm really glad that OCR didn't remove this song due to lack of arrangement or lack of quality or anything else like this, because this song really is a big part of the site's history.

Listening to someone play the new Zelda DS game as I type.

Came across this in the new torrent.....why god, why? It's like listening to a kid who just learned a new word and thinks it's hilarious. Deleted.

After nearly 11 years, this song is still among my favorites. In fact, I can't believe it's been 11 years. I'm glad Shael is still around writing music and performing.

I'm ashamed to admit this, but this is one of my favorite early OCR mixes. Chipmunk overdub at 0:24 == WIN

What can I say? So bad it's badass. The background singing at 0:24 in particular, cracks me up every time.

But, really, for a throwaway song it sounds quite fun and memorable. And it's a classic.

The vocal overdubs really make this one.

Heh, it's things like this that make me glad for OCR00001-OCR01000 :-P Quality, arrangement, and everything else goes by the wayside and ends up being completely irrelevant when the song is just so damn funny. I don't know how to properly review something like this, but rest assured the value of the song was not lost on me :-)

crazy track- it makes me glad that OCR can do some funny tracks in addition to the SUPER SERIOUS PENDULUM INSPIRED PROG METAL.

I don't think we'll be hearing a track this creative again for a long time. :-(

To all the haters of this song:

I remember when I was a wee lad of about 13

I loved to play Zelda:LTTP on my SNES,

and for some reason or another...

...I don't know if it was the pink hair

or the constipated look on his face when

trying to lift ANYTHING (vases even)...

I always felt that link reminded me of

a walking, talking (or grunting) penis.

In that respect, I feel that Link should

indeed remind us all of the mighty groin.

Amen.

(What's that smell?)

Zelda
The music of my groin
The sound of my groin
I can play it all day long

It looks like my groin
And it sounds like my groin
And it seems like my groin
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Zelda
Is such a happy game
But Link really looks
A lot like my groin, you know

My groin
Yes, my groin
Yes, my groi-oi-oi-oi-oi-
-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-OIN
