<WillRock> what the
<WillRock> i’ve noticed something
<WillRock> why the fucking lack of Double Dragon remixes on OCR
<WillRock> I realised there is a single remix for 3 different ports of the original double dragon, wtf is that
<WillRock> so 3 remixes in total
<WillRock> I thought Double Dragon was better known musically than that
<OA> double dragon has 2 ridiculously good songs
<OA> but it’s 30 years old
<Liontamer> Double Dragon has a ton of great tracks, not 2 :-P
<Liontamer> we should do a priority posting compo for it
<Liontamer> Anything from the DD series, make a passable mix of it to boost the representation, we'll post it ASAPs [sic]

There are only 8 Double Dragon series mixes on the site despite the NES trilogy in particular having awesome music. And only 3 from the original Double Dragon.

You see that? WillRock is right. THIS IS BULLSHIT. :'-(

Any VGM from the core Double Dragon series is pretty strong, and virt killed it with Double Dragon Neon. Let's see if anyone can find some inspiration.

I'm proposing this:
1. If anyone in the next 6 weeks submits a passable Double Dragon arrangement (old or brand new), we'll post it!
2. If we get 6+ solid total tracks by the community by mid-February, we'll aim to release a quick EP soon after, since (surprisingly enough) there are also not many fan arrangement albums for anything in the series.

If this idea works to get a few good arrangements, I'll continue this on a regular basis with a new series, and we'll also involve fan voting on what underrepresented comes next. :-)

Check out the core series music, and use this thread to announce what you're working on and share works-in-progress.

I'm always available if anyone wants me to contribute some electric geetar, synth lead/pad/bass/solo/whatever, piano, non-metal drums, and orchestral strings. And I'm game for helping with production as well. :lol:

Oh, and @Prince uf Darkness needs to do something here.

You already have this.  There is no need for further Double Dragon remixes, the pinnacle has been reached.</opinion>

Can we get the same treatment for Sega Swirl?  Which is at 0 remixes :/

Could do a whole album on criminally underlooked soundtracks.  I'd submit Tetris Battle Gaiden, myself.

Rule 1: NEVER try to suggest "less remixes is ok" for any reason whatsoever.

Sorry, that was meant to be tongue-in-cheek.  I could have said the same thing about The Moon and it would have been equally ridiculous, especially as of today.
