OCR01236 - Space Harrier "I Got the Spacebeam"

Recommended Posts

The tough homeboy lyrics about an 8-bit game are hilarious in a pathetic, Weird Al sort of way. I appreciate that Star is one of the few out there who is remixing tunes in a style other than techno. However, in my book, rap isn't a style. (DOH!)

I'm not one fer rap myself and I listened ta it once before I didn't think it was my kind of song. But then I gave it another chance and paid close attention, and it's got this mellow groove and amusing lyrics that I just didn't notice before. I likes it.

Geeze lighten up you weirdos, star made this song as a joke over 2 years ago, and he wrote it and finished it in about 20 minutes. Can anyone say, pretentious little pricks?

Hmm it's okay. Sounds like Star is trying to imitate Ludacris, but it comes across like he just lowered the speed on his rap once he had finished recording it. The beat sounds nice, but overall, not as good as Niggaz 4 Life and Unknown from MC.

It's good. It would have been good without the lyrics, too. I really like the changes in the instruments of the beat, especially the piano part, but the speed changes are weird.

Lol, While I'm not too crazy about the rap, i love the fact that it was done and its not too bad. I haven't heard Star Salzman since the Incredible Singing Robot. Star, Have you been hanging out in the ghetto or somethin', cuz this is ill. Man, I'm looking forward to more of your lyrical skills.

This is some crazy killer power orchestra rap.. whatever. Just great stuff.

I was at star's house when he made this. We got rather into it. Its easily one of my favorites from him. Creativity is simply spilling off of it. Very well used original source material.

Round 1:30 is when I feel it gets the most powerful. 1:50 always makes me laugh. This is simply a music style you'll never hear anywhere but here.

Sweet.

I tried to remove vocals in the Goldwave but failed. I wanted to listen this music without the vocals.

Good orchestra/rap.

I don't know how I came back to this mix reviews, but oh well... I'll worry about the health consequences a bit later. ^_^

I remember everytime I came across a mix where the review mentions it had lyrics, I always got this bad feeling because I don't enjoy lyrics in most songs- mostly due to that it's hard to enjoy the -music- and any lyrics at the same time (if they are even audible).

I think this mix if fairly clear, flows well, and has humorous lyrics, which labels it a keep for me.

Agreed 100%

The middle section is so good. Complete juxtaposition that works. I'm glad I don't hate rap because it's one of the best things ever, and I used to hate it til I stopped being gay.

I actually listened to this and froze for a split second when I heard the lyrics, thinking that someone had turned on the radio when I wasn't looking or something. GAH I'M HEARING THINGS

Nah, it was a good surprise. The lyrics made me laugh, made me think of trudging through a good(?) kind of sludge through space. o.o Good job.

WHY YOU DISTRACTIN' ME?

I SAID DON'T EVER BUG ME

WHILST I'M BEIN' A KILLA

i think that's all that needs to be said, but since I'm feeling verbose, I'll say a bit more. I like the original theme a lot, but i'm not really hearing much of it throughout, and the lyrics aren't great, though the flow and delivery is good enough. I think speeding up the track a bit mroe overall would be good, more of a club/party track.

Inspired delivery, I'm liking this. Never heard the original, though.

This is a puzzlingly unique and amusing mix, to be honest I can't even point the reason I like it - I just know I do. It feels way shorter than it actually is, then again it's probably better that way.

A+++, would (and will) hear again.
