Happy 20th North American Birthday to the Sega Dreamcast! Just three months older than us :)

To celebrate we've got not one, not two, but THREE Dreamcast ReMixes for you, starting with this Arcadia Legends Erasure-esque synth-pop vocal jam from Jason Covenant (Jason Miller); album director Darkflamewolf writes:

"Those who know me know that I'm a die-hard fan of Jason Covenant and pretty much anything he does is gold to me. I adore his voice and singing in every track he's done. He's been primarily on the compo scenes more than he is submitting remixes to OCR directly, but I took note of his unique style right away. His track was the last one delivered (not counting the sudden last-minute submission rework by Deedubs) and was a nice capstone to a completed album tracklist. He met and exceeded my expectations I had for him when I sought him out for this album."

Mastering engineer Rotten Eggplant adds:

"The lyrics and the composition here is amazing, and turned a song I didn't care for much in the original OST into a song I thoroughly enjoy listening to."

Vocals have a processed sound to them, but it's on the subtle side & (more importantly) works well with the genre, which channels synth-pop & a bit of indie-pop, at least for me. Lyrically, as a software developer, I can only say that C confuses me too, and even as an atheist, a coding angel with an omnipotent, omniscient IDE does sound like a game-changer. Eclipse doesn't strike me as Heaven's IDE, particularly ;) Thematic comparisons to Jonathan Coulton's classic "Code Monkey" seem relevant, though Covenant goes for a less overtly-goofy vibe. I've got a soft-spot in my heart (brain) for upbeat synth-pop, and Jason's done a great job transmogrifying the source into a sweet, tightly-packaged example of such; good stuff, enjoy!

C just confuses me
How I wish I could code
Progress has slowed

Free of errors I see,
How you comment so clearly
My programming...

[Chorus]
Angel, coding Angel,
Debugging my broken heart with your perfect functions
Angel, coding Angel, using Heaven's IDE

I wish that I could write,
lines the way that you do,
I would write for you...

[Chorus]

Angel, coding Angel,
Debugging my broken heart with your perfect functions
Angel, coding Angel, using Heaven's IDE,
Using Heaven's IDE
