OCR03009 - Pokémon Red Version 'Polka Center'

Recommended Posts

When Misdreavus become mischievous

On the night of Hallow's Eve

They fly around and deceive

With tricky intentions, they are frivolous.

They may inflict some with a status

And sometimes make them faint

But otherwise things turn out well

The frequency of battles get put on hiatus

The end of these Pokemon it ain't

Some other day they will scream their battle yell.

Short as all hell, but beyond that, this is quite the fun little ditty of the PokeCenter that I would probably hear at a crafts fair. Love this direction. Nice work.

Youth is not just a matter of age or of particular instrument, as this ReMix feels younger to me than some of the synthesizer-filled or shreddage-filled ReMixes on this site. It is a great piece, full of spontaneity, energy, and yes, youth. I feel the melody is particularly well suited to the instruments, and the adaptation is very well done on top of that. Someone's definitely having fun here, so make sure to listen to it.

Also, can I get a collective *groan* at the writeup?

I teach English in Japan right now and play this song on accordion during games of hot-potato : D and so far only one JHS student has recognized it

My only *groan* with the writeup is being categorized as "bluegrass". Next sub will be sure to point out this is in the "Old Time" or "Appalacian String Band" tradition!

Awesome idea, concept, and instrumentation -- the performance is also strong. Despite its short length, there are some neat creative ideas here and there. Maybe too minismalist in the end, but damn, that was great! :) More please, man!
