Final Fantasy V

LOL. Joe Redifer covers almost every aspect of Final Fantasy fandom, including even the (some might say) excessive ReMixing of its music in this hilarious Robovoice ReMix. Based off the Chocobo theme, it is 100% guaranteed to crack you up if you are at all familiar with anyone who fits the description of the track's electro-fanboy singer. But it ain't just parody - the music's actually good, with an absolutely brilliant whispered "FI - NAL - FAN - TA -SY" rhythm bit (loved that shit, there). Might offend some of the purists amongst you, but I'd take it with a grain of salt - we know we have a sense of humor when we can laugh at ourselves. Or something like that. Anyone, from the perspective of a Phantasy Star fan, this track is even better :) You really owe it to yourself to check it out (lyrics as well).

While I enjoy the lyrics for what they are (completely relevant to a lot of FF fans), the age of this ReMix shows up several times. Not that I don't like this ReMix, quite the opposite actually because I do like it, but I kinda have to agree with some previous reviewers that the arrangement and idea is what makes it.

Production-wise, this one is pretty bleh, but the arrangement ideas are great, especially the whisper counter melody, and the lyrics are personally super hilarious, as I have known several people who fit the description of the lyrics completely.
This remix will always be relevant. :D

THIS SONG IS SATAN. KILL YOUR CHILDREN. EAT THE HOMELESS. PEE ON A LOVED ONE.
When I first heard this song, I was all like "YOU GO, JOE!! YOU STICK IT TO THOSE FF FANBOYS!! YEAHHHH!!" I didn't really get into the FF games until more recently.
Now it's more like, "ok dude, you made your point". Not that the lyrics aren't great or the sentiment is at all wrong! I was just thinking it might be a little more dated now.
But you know, the more that I think about it this kind of fanboyism really hasn't gone away at all. And final fantasy still gets remixed all the damn time! So I'll declare this still relevant because the frustration lives on!

Lol! I didn't hear anything perverted in the lyrics till I checked out that misheard lyrics page. Now they're all I can hear D:
Anyway, this is really hilarious: the lyrics and their delivery both work to entertain.

I concur with what DJP wrote all those years ago: LOL.
This is serious music made to not be taken seriously. Simple yet broad satire on the gaming and mixing community. I love how it has something that any gamer can instantly relate to, even without having been a FF addict. A real classic that I'm sure I couldn't forget, even if I tried. The Chocobo melody is now completely synonymous with this song and its lyrics. I even know that it has become an anthem of sorts among the FF community.
Novelty mixes that don't get old are rare, so it's no surprise this one is remix royalty.
Also, I think I'm in love with Truth96130.

I also find it interesting how my remix keeps changing games. I submitted it under Final Fantasy, then it changed to Final Fantasy 7, and then to Final Fantasy 5. I think a script should be written where the Final Fantasy game to which the remix is assigned is generated randomly and is different each time! :)

Consider that my fault. Since the remix is more closely based on Boco's theme from FF5, I put my foot down to get it moved there.
Besides, Final Fantasy 5 doesn't have enough remix love. Where you're lost under the tidal wave of Final Fantasy 7 remixage, you're free to swim around in the shallow pools of Final Fantasy 5.

On the writeup page, there's a lyrics tab.

LOL @ Truth96130. However he/she is not the first to misinterpret the lyrics of this song. To clarify, that is definitely NOT what the vocals are saying. There used to be a link to the lyrics somewhere, but I'm not sure if I included the background vocals in the lyric sheet or not. But it is whispering "Final Fantasy yeah Final Fantasy" etc. I like your lyrics better, though. Maybe I'll change it!
TRIVIA: I had to write the lyrics to say "FAN TUSSY" in order to get the pronunciation correct within the Vocalwriter program, so that may cause some confusion with people who have never heard of Final Fantasy before and failed to notice the title/filename. :)
PS - If you were banned, you probably couldn't post.

Im banned from the site? Wait.. I love this site. Ok so we have had some disagreements in the past but we can work it out. I said I was sorry. Ok how about I write an official letter of apology for my actions of (jumping to conclusions) and you don’t ban me form the site ok? That seems fair to me. Im not a bad guy. IL change ok, Il do better. I promise from this day forward to never go on a cyber rampage, trying to get my point across (at this site again). You never know, I might join a evil site and not even know it.
In that case Its on. However, for this (wonderful) (cool) (nice) (awesome) (great) sit its all good form now on. You can trust me. Iv graduated form (premature jumping to conclusion) school. Now Im all good. By the way Id just like to complement all the wonderful administrators and the great work they do hear. I think they all deserve a raise.
You’re the greatest! O, I only used one exclamation mark. Woo Hoo.

Sorry about all the emails. It just sounded like it was perverted at first.
Next time Il listen more carefully to songs before I go on a rampage again. Ok I wont do that again. I suppose she’s just saying “Final fantasy Final fantasy”
However there was another guy that thought the same thing.
Any way I’m truly sorry for any inconvenience I caused as a result of my disapproval. Hope I did not offend any one. If so I am sorry. I also hope we don’t find out later that it really is perverted. Any way see ya. God bless.

I would have thought that the 'Swinging Porno Mix" would've attracted more of this stupidity.
