The one that started it all... well, by "it all" I suppose I'm only referring to a handful of games, but still, the original Pilotwings was a launch title done RIGHT, offering something completely new and making excellent use of the SNES' technical capabilities at the same time. In the tech-jargon of today, it was a differentiator, you might say. I know I for one had a blast playing it, which obviously included some solid minutes of intentionally NOT opening my chute & crashing straight into the ground, for the death-lolz. Speaking of having a blast, hopefully you're enjoying halc's album already, or will be soon, and I also think it's clear from the music itself that he had a good time making it. Of this 'Rocket Belt' arrangement, he writes:
"I decided to treat this one a bit more conservatively and focus more on the syncopation and rhythmic variation of the percussion and the interplay between various instruments. I think this came out to be one of my catchiest, most bouncy mixes yet. :)"
Definitely chipper, upbeat stuff; whereas the P64 mix emphasized the bassline, this is more about percolating sizzle & tricked out percussive exploits. I remember flying around to this theme, thinking to myself that it was both awesome AND strangely mellow accompaniment for having a rocket strapped to your back. One conjures something more Rocketeer-ish, i.e. adventurous, but since Pilotwings is more about the journey than the destination, and your only real enemy is yourself, I think the lounge/jazz vibe was the right choice. Obviously so did Nintendo, since they stuck with it for the sequels. halc's given the source a 9-bit facelift that adds some crunch & texture to the already catchy, smoov melody.
