OCR02031 - Super Mario Bros. "The 2-2 Blues"

Recommended Posts

K. So I fangasmed... I subscribe to Mr. Floss on youtube so I heard this awhile ago. Little did I know he subbed it to OCR!

Good showing, I liked the piece before, but its awesome that the rest of the VGM community can see the musicality of brentalfloss.

I hope he can put a show on next Mag, he's got skillz.

Awesome, I remember he said he submitted it at one point (on Twitter.) I'm glad to see he made it on here now.

His vocals are great, as well as his piano playing.

I'm subscribed to both Floss and OCR on Youtube, and when I heard this start playing, I recognized it immediately. I'd always wished that Floss would send his stuff here to OC, and when I heard this, I had to come read the write-up right away. :razz: Glad he's part of this community.

It's super awesome to see him here. 2-2 Blues was one of my favorites by him, even if not one of his more humorous pieces. I really enjoyed the piano and the singing, and particularly the lyrics. It's just a... sweet little song? I don't know how else to put it, exactly.

I hope to see more of him here in the future.

Damn, could this dude's vocals match the blues piano anymore? Seriously, this is amazing work. I heard that Randy Newman thing DJP mentioned, but regardless, that just makes this mix even better. Probably the best version of the Underwater theme I've ever heard.

I've been a fan since I got linked to his stuff a couple of months ago, and I have to say that this seems quite different from a lot of his other material. Regardless, it's a nice piece and certainly a tribute to his skills.

Good job! :nicework:

Exceptionally classy, yet still humorous lyrics. Brent can do it all, it seems. I wish the mic was a little closer to him for the recording, but he's still audible, and overall this is a great mix. :-)

Okay, THAT was frickin' awesome. Wow. Instantly one of my favourite OCRemixes of all time. Just... peerless.

edit: having listened to it a zillion times, the only complaint I can find is there's some pretty evident noise reduction artifacts on the vocals... at least to my ears...?

I'm not a fan of blues, really, but this is still obviously quality stuff and I did enjoy it. The lyrics are very cute and I'm definitely getting the Toy Story vibe, whether or not it had been intended. Great work!

Vocals are too dry and cold. Dunno if it's noise reduction, but the recording sounds like it's made inside a tin can. Which is a shame, because I think I would have really enjoyed this piece otherwise. There's nothing wrong with the perfomance or the piano. Some EQ and reverb on the vocals would have done it, I think.
