When I look back on this remix I think it should not have been accepted by ocremix.
The only good part is the part that starts at 1:57 and the intro had sort of a nice feel too ( with the really cuddly pad ), but the rest of the mix could have needed a lot more effort and generally more "feel" put into it.
The reason why it is so dull, with nothing really creative in there such as a bassline is simple really. When I was a kid I was virtually tone-deaf and I knew this.
Even though I had improved much at that stuff at the time I made this remix I still had much doubt about myself. I was afraid that if I experimented with layers of
strings or arpeggio synths I would do something wrong, i.e. use a wrong key-tone or something and not be able to hear it.
So basically I feel that I should have waited with submitting it until I was more confident about myself.
I am not tone-deaf at all anymore so I know I could make a much better mix if I tried but it would be a waste of time since ocremix doesn't accept new versions of old remixes anymore. After all I guess this is a piece of video game remixing history, boring as it is, there is at least one small part worth listening to.
Just thought I would let people know that I don't even like this remix myself and explain a bit why it was never as good as it could have been.
