Congrats Chthonic, on finally being an OCRemixer. I've been following this since its early WIP days and the tune stayed as sweet as ever. The sax has gotta be the best part. You did a great job with arranging your own stuff without separating it too far from the original, considering that the source music is already short.

This has to be one of the best uses of the sax in a remix that i have ever heard. The way you use it with the speed jazz piano reminds me of the Cowboy Bebop series. I also like the stuttering track in the back, whick works really well in this. 8)

the sax solo is definitely one of the best solos on the site. Great job - this one goes in my personal top 10 playlist

I downloaded this song just a while ago, and I have to say that it is a title that beckons my memories back to classic Mario playing days.

Not sure, but I would say anyone who enjoys Mario game music should try this out.

Oh, and the sax interlude is to die for.

Mmm, such a happy beat.

Like RimFrost said, I really do get a feeling of soaring through the skies when I listen to this. It's such an enjoyable and fun song to listen to, especially with the nostalgia on it's side. Here's hoping for more from you.

This is it.

This is what I like to call an OC original!

Theres nothing that makes my foot tap and heart beat with nostalgia than the old original music going into a new age mix!

This one is definately going to Mr. MP3 Player!

Way too fun. Great piano and just a really fun vibe throughout. Those fun vocal breaks are nice and don't get me started about the oboe deal at 2:24. That synth that we first get introduced to at :37 starts out innocent enough but it really picks up and you have a lot of fun with it ESPECIALLY with the fun solo starting at 3:12. Really fun to jam to. Quality stuff.

fun.

I have yet to find a remix that sounds as fun as this. An excllent first submission with a perfectly clad title.

:sleepzzz:8O

If I could have this play on my alarm clock every morning, I would actually get up.

I hate this. Just to say that the ReViews aren't always good words.

I have yet to figure out whether or not you mean that, but if you do, awesome. 8)

This ReMix captured my attention from beginning to end. I believe that this is easily one of my favorite Mario Remixes that I've ever heard! It reminds me of the days when I used to play Super Mario 64 all the time... Not to mention the added nostalgia from the golden days of the NES Mario Bros! The addition of a sax adds a new layer to the already uplifting song, and I just can't get enough of it! Props to you, chthonic, for a great ReMix. :)

All I can say is "wow." This is one of the most interesting remixes I have heard. It is one of the remixes that just makes you stop doing everything and just listen to it. It would be great in the new Dance Dance Revolution with Mario game. I would love to dance to this!

If I'm not mistaken, the "Yeah!" is Flavor Flav right? My sister watches a LOT of "The Surreal Life" and it sounds just like him.

I have no idea. I think it has something to do with Def Jam. Or something. I don't really know. But the sample actually says "YEEEAHH BOOYEEE!"

If that helps.

Kinda.

Yo Ben, This is probably one of the coolest Remixes i've ever heard! I've listened to it at least 13 times already and ive only had it for a day XP

I love the smooth techno feel and the jazzy interlude at 1:07 into the song. It all blends together into one awesome song 8) I highly recommend downloading this one!

Keep up the great work chthonic!

Didn´t know that a fat italian like mario could be this funky. At first I thought this would be some sort of MIDI-remix, but WHOA, it looks I was way wrong. This mix is like mario himself in this song:INVINCIBLE.

This song is awesome, plain and simple. No matter how many times I hear it, it never gets old, and now matter how crappy my headphones are, you can 'feel' this song. I ecspecally like the saxophone bit near the middle of the song. It's as if the red plumber himself is flying in the clouds before my eyes. For this perfect mix, a 10/10.

I like the fade-in at the beginning and the electric guitar adds a new good twist to it while still staying true to the original. The sax is amazing, haha! Really adds something new and unique to it. Enough said. Keep it up, chthonic!

This is a classic tune that has been well remixed. its nice to see that you have kept with the feel of actual intstruments instead of creating just a techno remix.

The guitar is extremely well done (is That Live?) the saxephone has been commented lot but is just IS well done. all up this is really really good!':D'
