    OCR03694 - Undertale "The Spectral Mire"

    This is definitely what I was in the mood for today. I only had one thought about this I wanted to express right now: I love the inclusions of the in-game text and conversations you overhear from the Echo Flowers. At first, I found myself wishing those lines were a little bit louder, because you can't totally make out everything they are saying. (For instance, I only knew that the conversation about two monsters' wish to climb Mt. Ebott is in there because I caught a few key phrases, and I remember that part especially well from the game.) But as I kept listening, I realized how fitting it is that those are in the background, and hard to hear. With those voices behind the music, it creates the impression that you are hearing nothing but echoes, or the whispering voices of ghosts. So, the quiet voices truly do give this song a spectral feeling. And putting this in a metal arrangement is probably the best expression of "mire" I can think of. "Spectral Mire." Ingenious! OK, that's all from me. I'm going to go download this now. Hasta luego.

    OCR01481 - Raptor 'PlectraSubCity'

    I don't know what's more surprising: the fact that I remembered this game well enough to think of looking up remixes for it, or the fact that someone else remembered this game well enough to actually create a remix for it. Not to mention, there's the fact that I still recognize a song that I last heard when my age was a single-digit number. This remix may be subtle and ambient, but something about it commands my attention. It's like I can be in the middle of doing something, and when this song starts playing, I'll want to stop and listen more closely. (I guess I shouldn't listen to this while operating heavy machinery, then.) I wish I had the technical expertise to say why I like this so much. But, as it is, that's all I can really say: love it.
  3. I'm just going to re-post the comment I left on the YouTube video for this song: "This is the kind of song I would play to my kids to put them to sleep. You know, if I played the violin. And if I had kids. "Not only is this a beautiful piece of music, but it's imaginative, too; for all the times I've heard Gerudo Valley arranged to sound upbeat, intense, epic, or overwhelmingly active, I think this is the first time I've ever heard someone remix Gerudo Valley into something mellow and calming. This actually does feel like something that would help someone sleep. "I love it. I'm going to go download this now."
  4. Probably not the intended effect, but listening to this is making me laugh almost non-stop. Maybe it's reading the descriptions and comments. Or maybe it's because I recognize those voice clips from every time I've..., you know what? Right now I don't want to use any verb you would use to describe what you do to Rosalina in Smash Bros. It feels... weird. Oh, and I am so glad I was wearing headphones when I listened to this. I wouldn't want anyone to walk into the room and wonder what exactly was going on in here. Now, with all that said, this is a pretty good jazz piece, and I like it. There. That's all I needed to say. That wasn't so hard. (*Sigh.* It feels like everything I say here runs the risk of becoming an innuendo.)
  5. I'm no hater of vocal remixes, but I'll admit that when I come across one, I often click "play" and expect that I'm not going to like it. And then I was pleasantly surprised by this today. It's upbeat, happy, has a bit of melancholy in the story the lyrics tell, and it's catchy, the more times you listen to it. As people have already said, this song has a "summery" feel to it. Perfect for me to listen to while the air is freezing, and I am surrounded by mounds of snow. (Ha. Good times.)

    OCR03641 - Chrono Trigger "Zeal Breeze"

    I remember that for most of the time that I ever walked around the Kingdom of Zeal, I always felt a little uneasy. It was like I somehow knew, even from the moment I set foot in it for the first time, that something was off about the place. (And of course, as the game goes on, you find out just how "off" a lot of things are.) Maybe it's the uncommon opinion, but I felt that same quality present in the original "Corridor of Time" theme. So even though the music in the original soundtrack is meant to be beautiful and calm, I always found that it made me feel just a little bit on edge the whole time. Anyway. As I listen to this, it reminds me of that one line that an NPC in Kajar says to you: "Your power... differs from ours. It's difficult to describe, but in you I sense a strange... kindness." Yeah. Something about the gentler instrumentation, the Eastern-sounding quality, the smoother articulations... maybe it's just my layman's interpretation, but I find it comes across as "kinder." And so, I like this almost more than the original. I think it's a beautiful piece of work.
  7. I remember when I first came across this song, about 10 years ago, on this newly-popular website called YouTube. It was one of the first video game remixes that truly mesmerized me. I've listened to it fairly consistently over all those years, and I'm still not tired of hearing it. The brass parts make it feel heroic, the harp parts give it a mystical quality, and every part of this song feels inspiring. Exactly as Legend of Zelda music should be. ¡Bien maravilloso!
