OCR02562 - Final Fantasy VII 'Not the Taxi You Whistled For'

Recommended Posts

Heck yeah! I remember when this passed through the workshop, and I absolutely loved it back then. XPRTNovice has been bringing some fantastic tunes through there, so I'm really glad to see this posted. It's one of those tunes you can't help but love, since it's so cheery.

Well, I hit play on this one before even starting to read the write-up, and needless to say I was really surprised from the get go. On OCR, we typically get music in one of the 'holy trinity' genres (electronica, rock, or orchestral). I don't think I've heard bluegrass on this site yet, but if this is the first venture into that genre, then it sets the bar quite high. Nice work all around!

Fantastic! An utter delight! By far the best video game whistling song since Deadly Premonition's "Life is Beautiful". I look forward to hearing more from XPRTNovice!

well played! I've been kinda itching for a little more bluegrass from OCR and you definitely delivered. I've also been playing through FFVII lately and thinking it would be fun to figure out Farm Boy on my guitar. You've got some great skills and a lot of creativity. Look forward to hearing more from you!

Thanks :) I'd be happy to pass you the chord structure. It's way easy.

I loved this. Congratulations on something truly original. I felt totally transported to a bluegrass band (or a back porch) where everyone was getting together and just taking the tune and running with it in a wonderfully organic matter. TREMENDOUS whistling - the ability for that to be both the lead and the background was impressive! A must for everyone who wants something new that they haven't heard before!

This remix inspired me to register for the OC forums so I could comment favorably. It's upbeat, fun, and distinct; almost like two of the happier tunes from FFVII were infused with the energy of the Super Mario Sunshine soundtrack (initially I thought Wild Arms solely due to the use of whistling lol). Remixes that make the listener(s) smile are a good thing.

Yeah! I remember this from the workshop, such an amazing remix! So upbeat and relaxing, it always puts me in a good mood. The guitar work is so expressive, I love it! Gotta love that whistling as well!

As Cloud and the group are leaving Midgar, they find a Chocobo farm which has recently been purchased by... the Beverley Hillbillies.

Or maybe a joke about Green Acres is the way to go.

Nonetheless, this arrangement really made me smile. Superbly put together!

That's some damn good whistling! So awesome to see some bluegrass appear on OCR like this. I actually have a fondness for these kinds of arrangements, so the entire ReMix made me grin with how natural it all sounded. Just wonderful stuff.
