Ever hear an OC ReMix in "real life"?

Recommended Posts

You know, you're walking down the street, and someone's playing a remix from their car, house, or you even hear it coming from a radio! Has this ever happened to anyone, and if so, did you strike up a conversation with the person?

I have a few friends who listen to OCR outside of those I know from OCR. The only time I've heard one played though was during my visits to the Nintendo World store.

Once at a nerd convention. The other in my friends car... a couple of my friends who don't partake in the forum action here at OCR are quite the avid downloaders of OCremixes... I'll occasionally hear them listening to something every once in a while.

Well... this one day me and two of my friends decided to go on a hike. When we got to the top of the hike we sat around and decided to play though Secret of Mana with 3 players. After playing for a few hours I suddenly realize that we were listening to an OCRemix that was from the Secret of Mana soundtrack... and just happened to be in that zone too.

I think it was Zeratul's track. I only remember because this was two weeks ago and it was awesome to realize that we were essentially playing the game with the OCRemix soundtrack running (at least for that zone). Hmmm... still need to sit down and finish that.

I have! At my local Gamestation store in London, I heard Jared Hudson's Metal Gear May Cry Remix on what looked sounded liek a CD-R with the usual R&B / Hip Hop Pop. Had goosebumps while listening to it, so powerful! Then those goosebumps turned into cringebumps when the next track was by Soulja Boi Tellem.

Define "real life." I mean, I definitely heard a couple of OCRemixes played live at a wedding a couple weeks ago, but I don't think that counts.

Excluding OCR-related gatherings and things that have been my own doing (ie my girls doing floor routines to OCRemixes), I don't think I've ever heard any remixes in the real world.

My hometowns local radio station lets anyone who knows how come in and DJ, and I've definitely played OCRemix doing my shows.

On a side note, I happen to know personally that a famous author listens to OCRemix while he writes and recommends OCRemix to anyone that asks. How cool is that!

haha, I do the same thing!

Well, I used to work at a dollar store where I would play OC ReMixes for everyone to hear, but no one ever recognized the music (exceptions being a couple friends who came in to visit).

About the coolest random game music experience was at a Giant Eagle near my college, when I heard the Viper Manor music from Chrono Cross start playing over the loudspeaker.

I always play 31 Seconds really loud, I wear my OCR T-Shirt whenever I travel in hope that I will actually meet someone who knows more about it than I do (when I say meet, I mean in person). I do my best though to spread the word of the awesomeness of OverClocked ReMix using my blog (http://www.reoganworks.blogspot.com/) and by just generally playing music really loud. I try, but I've yet to hear anything regarding OCR in "real" life.

Yup, lots of us have met each other during meetups and became good friends that way. Generally people are pretty cool to meet & hang out with in the community.
