Hazama, who you'll remember from his groovy Cars-esque Pop-up ReMix that's more addictive than watching Mr. Ed reruns with the volume down and trying to dub the horse yourself, gives us this amusing nugget of pitch-shifted vocal splendor. Whilst it is not McVaffe, it achieves a certain warm, smiley feeling through its endearingly earnest lead vocal, from the perspective of a resident of hyrule who waxes poetic about his life. Hence the title. When it goes up on 'Hyruuuuuuuul,' be ready to run for cover. Briefly charming :)

Hahaha, I love this song so much. Is absolutely hilarious. The lyrics and the way they're song are absolutely perfect. I am so happy this made its way onto this site.

I found this hilarious. My wife sings this to me on occasion, with much laughter during/after. A strange little mix, I recommend giving it a try.

This was kinda hilarious in a way it shouldn't be. But I kind of liked it. Marks for the balls to do such a short piece in that style :)

The lyrics, I have to say, are weak, but the quality of the vocal sound tells us to accept it as intentional.

A strange one for sure

at first I was thinking wow this is a pretty solid remix through the intro part

then it shifted to the vocals and I was thinking WTF!?!?!??

of course I was laughing all the while. It sounded to me like this song was intentionally sung too high.

Despite what others may say I think the vocals fit perfectly.

I finally had to stop listening to it to catch my breath and avoid passing out due to lack of oxygen.

"I live in Hyrule, my kids they go to school"

"It is a busy life . . . but I live with my wife."

short and sweet and to the point.

I was disappointed that it wasnt longer.

I WANT VERSE 2 DAMMIT! _

This was awesome and hilarious! I can just see some country Hyrule guy out there looking at the chickens in his yard thinking the bushes need trimming and singing to himself.

Contrary to what others have said, I think the voice fits and when it goes up on Hyruuuule and schooool I get a kick out of it. We need more fun mixes like this, Music of my Groin, and Team Gato

Sure is a busy life.

I enjoyed the quirkiness and creativity of this one; though the production is weakz. I think some reviewer dudes are a little overly harsh considering the intent of the mixer of having some fun.

This is cool. Kinda like Karaoke but pretty interesting. Wish it was a little longer but the set up is interesting enough. Good work! Keep up the innovations in remixing!

This is why we have a judge panel.

Protricity. Ok... did you know this song was never actually submitted? DJPretzel posted it on his own whim... and I think it's awesome that he did.

I really don't care if you hate this song... but before you go bashing it, just take a step back and realize that it's people like you who've kept me from writing anything new in the last four years. Suikoden II was my swan song, and that's that. Love it or hate it, it's here to stay.

The only thing stopping you is yourself. Change comes from within. Home is where the heart is. Or in this case, somewhere in Kakariko village.

So true. Don't get me wrong. It's a really cute remix. Perhaps you could write something that's more in your vocal range, or work your way up there, lol. Don't let others get you down!

The voice on helium is funny for a little bit, and it fits well with the cutesy simplicity of the lyrics, but good thing it's less than a minute cuz then I'm not sure we can all handle hearing that voice for a lot longer than that. Overall, it's short and sweet, and I like it, haha.

Im not to shure about the voice but I like the backround.

Hazama: PLEASE NOTE work on your high notes.

I liked the piano and drums, very soothing to listen to... but then the voice kicks in and I was frightened. Hazama's best is still the Pop Up song, I'll never get rid of that one!
