I listen to most the new songs on OCR like the night they're posted. UNFORTUNATELY, this one slipped by, and I only listened to this because of its mention in the mp3.com interview with DJP.

Anyways...OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG.

Simply amazing.

The beginning sounded a little generic to me at first; I almost skipped over the song thinking, "yawn, another stereotyped rock remix". Then the vocals came in and I realized this one was different. The progression, vocals, production, everything is proffessional (or close enough!). I love the alt rock sound of bands like Foo Fighters, Gin Blossoms, etc., and this song is very reminiscent of that style.

I give it a 10/10.

Here's to hoping for more remixes from JD.

10/10

You can tell from first listen that this song was very organized and very well set up. The vocals were also very cool, very original. Nice job, jdproject, I'm looking forward to more excellence from you! :)

Let's not forget to add the fact that said n00b was trying to type 'losers' (note that there is only ONE o - just one!) but instead typed something that implies we're all loose...

See, this is why no-one likes n00bs.

Here is a short exceprt of a conversation between myself and a friend of mine:

"So what did you think?"

"That song was pretty bad-ass. Where did you find it?"

"Would you believe a video game music remixing website?"

"What?! That's music from a video game?!?"

"Yup."

"NO WAY!!! THAT'S AWESOME!!!"

Okay granted, video games have rarely if ever been acknowledged for their music. More and more games are licensing actual music for their games (EA Sports, Gran Turismo series, SSX series to name a few) but that doesn't count. Games with ORIGINAL soundtracks are more often than not passed up in favor for a cd in the stereo and that's a damn shame. Especially with this song. Ken is in a tie for my favorite SF character (with Guile), and the first time I heard this, I think I creamed my pants.

Can I give it an 11/10?

3 letters. just 3. O M G! I can't DL your second version (I can't even listen to it!) It is very sad about how most people tend to ignore game music. This song fits Ken perfectly. If anyone knows his moves, pm them to me so I can beat his story. THX

PS: THIS SONG=0\/\/N/-\G3!

Air guitar? More like heavy dragon punch - excellent work - totally agree with DJP's use of the words "radioplay" and "foo fighters".

Realise your Ken!

Hey...I'm a n00b. Oh well :roll:

Honestly, I wasn't too fond of Ken's theme music in Street fighter. However, this remix to his theme is awesome!! I'm listening to it right now. Time to "realise my Ken".

A great mixx of EMO and Game Music, though I'd like to hear a little more aggresive drums. But other than that, its a kickass song. If it was completly original I'd guess we'd all hear it on the radio.

That's one thing cleared with jd. It's meant to be "realise you're Ken." Just a little bit of poor grammar entering the lyrics. ;)

I disagree - the writer may have meerly used Ken as a personification of inner power..cheesy as it may be.

Only way to clarify is for the mixer to elaborate..
