OCR01206 - Little Nemo "Nightmare King's Dream"

Recommended Posts

This is definitely a great remix! It brought back some memories of the game. I remember playing this game when I was a kid! Definitely a wonderful remix... I think I would take out some of the synths, since it seems more like noise than just part of the song itself.

I was thinking the same thing, mainly because I wanna hear nothing but that piano.

Great piece though, would've loved to hear more of the piano, but I don't think more would have been enough anyway. Damn that's good... this makes me realise I have to get out more to hear real stuff like this. Just the skill in that playing grabbed me by the throat.

I definitely owned a copy of this game back in the day. Great mix, especially the piano jamming. I love high energy mixes like this that combine electronic synthesis with straight-up instrumental playing. Hope to hear more submissions, Shane!

Sweet mix! It's rockin and is just variable enough to keep it fresh. I like it a lot. Maybe Shane would be kind enough to release a piano mix for us, I'm sure we would all appreciate it.

I have been waiting forever for someone to remix that song and he's done a damn good job. Not quite how I would have done it (if I could remix well) but a damn good job none the less. I give it a 15/10 8)

I don't see what was so great about the original, and thus I don't see what's so great here. But, the piano solo was absolutely great! More of that stuff!

After hearing it a few times, I've changed my mind. It's not just the solo that's great, the whole thing is. The start is a little slow, but what ReMix serves the whole sound package at the start?

This is awesome! I love everything about it. 8O

The instruments, the melody, and the overall feel. This remix sounds like really good video game music, and that's why I like it so much. I MUST hear more! :D

P.S. Do you have a higher quality MP3 of this song available? :wink:

does anyone know where i can find the movie of this on DVD? 8O

Oh say WHAT? A Little Nemo in Dreamland MOVIE?

I wanna know more.

Oh yeah. The mix. Not quite download-worthy for me, I just didn't like it. Can't put my finger on why though...

Hey. I'm caffeine-high, sick, CO-poisoned and it's 12:45 AM, and you expect me to THINK?

Fat chance.

if you mean "Finding Nemo", then I'm sorely upset. Just kidding.

Anyways, I hate to be the one to say it, but the intro immediately made my mind turn to Final Fantasy 3(American) Boss music. Listen to the first 2 seconds of it and then think of the very beginning of the boss music. DIE-HARD SQUARE FAN!

Great start to this one, nice intro synth, and piano solo lead into the track.

Very cool beats and synth selection; that bass synth has a great arpeggio at the end of a few of the phrases. The piano is a real highlight throughout, and the layered percussion has some great rhythms.

Really classy work, this is a great mix! Recommended!

This is one of the ReMixes that made me go back and play Little Nemo again. This is top choice mixing here, very energetic and altogether awesome. The Nightmare King is no match for Shane Barber!

I remember first hearing this at a friend's dorm room - it's a curiously catchy song. The samples are unfortunately outdated - would love to hear this with updated ones. :-(

Yeah, it is pretty amazing how old this sounds now. When I did it, it sounded pretty fresh to me. Maybe I will get around to it one day. By the way, I now do music under the name Rush Coil.
