Looking for a Remix (Chrono Cross)


Recommended Posts

Got a bit of an odd request here. I've been going through my OCR collection and updating tags (mostly adding in "track" numbers since several of them were missing it), and I came across an unusual remix that I can't locate. Now, in most cases when I have a remix downloaded but it isn't on the site, it's because it's been removed - the change log has been very helpful with identifying these. In this case, however, it doesn't appear in the log as a removed track.

The remix in question is a Chrono Cross remix called "Tower of Bad Dreams," with Blue Magic as the tagged artist. The other tags indicate that it's from 2004 and the album is parsed as http://www.ocremix.org (newer tags omit the www. from the URL). My first thought was that maybe I'd downloaded it elsewhere and it had gotten mis-tagged somehow. So I googled it, and came up with exactly one hit: a remix listed on the soundtrack page of Chrono Compendium. And when I downloaded that, it had the same tags as I did, including the OCR album listing.

Does anyone have, or know where I can find, any more information on this track? If it was originally on OCR and somehow skipped in the change log, I'd like to at least add in its original number. And if it wasn't, I need to sort it into a different folder and properly tag it.

Hey there!

2004 is more and more of a hazy time for me, but I suspect Blue Magic tagged the track in advance before sending it into the submissions inbox (as indicated by the instructions back then).  And yet, there’s no record of him sending it to OCR, which is odd.

The VGMix archive (where Chrono Compendium obtained a fair chunk of coverage back then) has a similarly titled track known as “Tower of Nightmares”, and it’s safe to assume they both are either identical or follow the same principal idea.  So I have a feeling you got the track from VGMix when it was active.

I hope this answers your query x)

Listening to the track in the archive, it sounds like Tower of Bad Dreams might have been an earlier version of Tower of Nightmares. So unless someone else can find evidence linking it to OCR, I'm going to assume that was the case and replace it with the one from VG Mix.

Thanks Rexy!
