OCR00546 - Street Fighter II' Champion Edition "Credits Theme (One Credit Finish Mix)"

Recommended Posts

Street Fighter II' Champion Edition 'Credits Theme (One Credit Finish Mix)'

Hah... it *is* Pachelbel's Canon! :) Which brings up the question: was that an addition by the remixer, or was it in the original? Anyway... Most of the intro seemed very dry to me, even after it turned into a fast techno mix, but this picks up towards the middle so it's all good! Overall I would really recommend this one, to Street Fighter and classical music fans alike!

way back when i'd first heard this, i found the intro to be quite emotional. really, when you go with Canon you can't go wrong. the original shines in the happy hardcore genre, and the mix itself induces fond memories of playing SFII with my friends

Usually I'm not a fan of happy hardcore... ah, but this is great. Brings back memories. Who didn't try FOREVER to beat Street Fighter 2 with just 1 credit? Or for that matter, defeat M. Bison on level 7 with every character just to see the ending? Man - 40something tries to do that with Zangief, man... getting mad, throwing the paddle, screaming, and trying again - those were the days. But when ya actually do it! YES! Happy! Ya stare at the screen with a big grin glued to your face as ya watch the character's ending you fought SO hard to see. And this music, well - this music adds the final touch. When this played along with the final credits, you KNOW you made it. Yeah.

This remix just amplifies all those memories. The happiness of victory. Yay!!! Fun.

A good, fast-paced techno-pop piece that manages to be nostalgic in a very upbeat and happy way. Listen to this when you're depressed, and I promise you you'll put the wrist-slitters back. :)

This song is awesome. Even if you don't like techno, you should check this out. This is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in the past few years. All of my friends seem to agree too.

I can't believe that this ReMix has so few ReViews! This is BY FAR one of the best remixes ever written. Happy hardcore at its best, this song has everything in it, and the sound quality is excellent. I always listen to this, at least once per week, and it is on the CD I have in my car.

Seriously. GET THIS SONG NOW PLZ.

Everything Nineko says is spot on. I can't believe this song (from 2002 IIRC) has this few reviews.

This is one of my all-time favourite remixes on OCR, from one of my favourite games of all times. Listenting to this makes me remember the good old days, and I feel like 12 again.

And seriously, we need more Happy Hardcore in here.

This is a great ReMix. GREAT. I discovered it only a little while back when I downloaded the total OCRemix 0001-1500 collection and it has stayed in my "OCR Best" playlist ever since.

Two months ago my brother died in a plane crash, he was a pilot and loved the Street Fighter series his whole life. He was the only one I ever saw get the "You have mastered Ken!" screen on SFII:Turbo [complete the game with all perfect rounds] and we lived and breathed SF as kids.

This song makes me remember him [sFII:CE was another fave] so its really sad for me now, but such an awesome mix and a great reminder of an incredible Ken player and great guy. Long live SF, long live Ken!

One of my favorite remixes on here. Been so for awhile. Definetly invokes lots of smiles and lots of tears and things of that nature. Well-played, my man. Permanently in my top 5 of OCR.

I find it a bit repetitive, but like the general consenus here, it matters not, for it is Street Fighter; Street Fighter represented in a most unadulterated form, as it should be.

Here's to retro ladies and gentlemen.

Pretty authentic sounding happy hardcore, I can dig it.

Very much Cannon in D, but it sounds fine. I havn't heard the source and can't seem to find it, but it's a good track.

Ahhh...

I can see why "happy hardcore" applies here, and I pick out some Cannon in D.

Mmmm...

This sounds like some bizarre anime/DDR track. I don't particularly care for it, but I do give credit for trying something different out.

Wow, I'm really embarassed to say this, but I've been listening to both this and Canon for years and I've never realised how reminiscent the two are. Which is staggering now that everyone has pointed it out. I really hope it doesn't damage my enjoyment of this mix in future. It shouldn't.

Anyway, its not a Canon remix and thankfully the theme is only used as a bed to support the main melody.

Rayza is the king of boiling hot dance music that is almost impossible to dance to. No complaints from me, since I don't dance. I enjoy this type of mix because of the audio overload, and that sensation is delivered here while also delivering some kickass tunage as well. You can't ask for much more.

Ha, those opening claps and thumps are such a generi-teknoz throwback. :-)When the theme actually kicked in around :43, it was certainly an interesting approach. Was never my cup of tea, especially because once the track got going, it was pretty repetitive and didn't have much development or dynamic contrast. I appreciate the interpretation approach, but wish this had more substance and variation behind it.
