OCR02068 - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island "Mr. Stork! May I Go Home..."

Recommended Posts

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This mix isn't necessarily a style I'd be into normally, but I like how gentle/fragile it is. You can really see a lot of care and sensitivity taken to the emotional weight of the arrangement, which is impressive, especially given the quality of the samples.

WAY TO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! :) :) :)

Pretty good for a debut piece. This track is indeed very "fragile" sounding as Ella Guro put it, almost as though a reflection of hard earned peace that could break with the slightest pressure. At any rate, I enjoyed listening to it. Good job Iggy

Man, I went and had a couple's massage today with my wife, and the music in the room was terrible - a super slow and lame rendition of Pachelbel's Canon. Then I get home and listen to this. Now here, this would have been SOOOO much better. Methinks next time I'll bring this on a CD along with a few other select remixes. :)

Iggy this is great, really peaceful, and so touching.

Also what a great way to make a comeback into the community. All grown up now and a remix posted to boot. <3

Fantastic choice, Iggy!! I've been campaigning for someone to remix the credits of Yoshis Island for years!! You have really done a great job. Although there will always be a space in my heart for someone to produce a rendition that more closely fits the timing of the original I think you have done an very peaceful, thought provoking rendition.

It's got a real good dreamy feel to it, without being lullabyish.

I disagree; personally, I find this very lullaby-ish. Peaceful, relaxing, perfect to zone out & fall asleep to.

Naturally, this also means that this isn't a remix that is going to grab your attention and hold it hostage for its full length, but since this isn't the purpose of the song at hand anyway, that's not a problem in any way, shape or form.

Beautiful, relaxing song. Nice work.

Actually, this is what I did as I started listening to it, and I wasn't even sleepy. But that's not a bad thing. It is a simple mix, but sometimes less is more.

This is just about all I could possibly ask for in a remix of this theme, which I hold very dear to my heart. It's very meaningful, elegant, and, for lack of more appropriate adjectives, fucking beautiful. You manage to squeeze the most out of those sampled instruments (though I'm not really loving the tone of the pad at times) and ultimately craft an arrangement that's so relaxing that you tend to ignore any potential flaws that could be found.

Not much more to be said here, this is one of the best Yoshi's Island arrangements around!

I love the piano and acoustic guitar combination work here, and the whole ReMix is simply beautiful and gorgeous. Very peaceful and appropriate to it's nature, which I loved. Everything sounded really good, and if anything came up that sounded a hair off, the arrangement masked it, which made it that much better. It sounds dreamy and gentle, perfect for a lullaby, especially how the ReMix itself seems to drift off to sleep which I thought was cool. Fantastic job.

Such a mellow mix; beautiful and faithful. Wondrous job, but I've already told you this when it came out.

now where are you anyways?
