My playlist: OCR Vox

Recommended Posts

So I have a playlist I've been working on for a couple of years now; finally decided to share it! I have a couple I've put together, with different criteria, so the criteria for this one was:

  1. Must have prominently-featured vocals (not just background OOH AHH)
  2. Must be from a game I like, or at least a game with music I like
  3. Cannot be featured on an album I already listen to separately

Now, this is pretty rough criteria--I bent or outright ignored the rules for a couple of tunes I just really liked. So if your remix doesn't appear, please don't take it personally! I probably just never played the game it comes from, or already had the album, or maybe just not personally a fan of the genre, may even just be newer than the last time I added stuff, etc.

It is (rather uncreatively) titled OCR Vox. I just put together a youtube playlist for it:

(1) OCR Vox - YouTube

Here is the track list. I separated it out into discs, like some of the OC ReMix albums do. Each disc has its own opener and closer, and of course I sorted them all based on what felt to me like the most natural progression musically.

 

DISC 1: This disc was mostly composed of tunes that felt like intros to me.

1 (Disc 1 opener). Castlevania: Symphony of the Night 'Lost in a Nightmare' by Palpable.

2. Donkey Kong Country 'Permutation' by Nicole Adams, injury & Entheogen.

3. Mega Man 4 'Standing on Top' by Flexstyle and Jason Covenant. 

4. Donkey Kong Country 2 'A New Place' by injury, M.J. Ault, Nicole Adams & Tepid

5. Super Metroid 'Kindred' by Jillian Aversa & zircon

6. Ocarina of Time 'Generations' by DrumUltima, Jillian Aversa, XPRTNovice & zircon

7. A Link to the Past 'The Goddess Gets Groovy Tonight' by Garrett Williamson & Sir Jordanius

13. Chrono Trigger 'Lucid States' by ambient & DragonAvenger

14 (Disc 1 closer). Ocarina of Time 'Lullaby of the Sky' by Jillian Aversa and zircon

DISC 2: Discs 2 and 3 were for tunes that had an "act 2" feel; which I know is really vague, haha. I mostly split them up because otherwise there would be this one disc twice as long as the others.

1 (Disc 2 opener). Final Fantasy II 'Grind My Crank' by XPRTNovice

2. Metal Gear Solid 'Never Go Away' by Chris | Amaterasu, Claire Yaxley & Dj Mystix

3. Chrono Trigger 'The Incredible Singing Robot' by Star Salzman

4. Mega Man 10 'Going Commando' by Brandon Strader (What happened to this one? I can't seem to find it anymore on OCR or anywhere else; naturally, I had to omit it from the yt playlist.)

5. Mega Man X4 'My Choice' by Brandon Strader (Ditto. I did find it on youtube, but it was uploaded by someone else and I didn't want to perform a faux pas if these were deliberately deleted)

6. Final Fantasy 'Find Your Way' by Darangen

18 (Disc 4 closer). Chrono Trigger 'The Place We Knew' by Claado Shou, Jillian Aversa and Reuben Kee

DISC 5: What gives? Why is there a disc after the closers? And why is it overrun with Xenogears remixes? Well, long story short, these are where most of my 2020 updates landed. For previous updates, I had been mixing the new tunes into the existing four discs but they were getting so long already that I decided to add a fifth disc. And I just so happen to have played Xenogears (and a few other titles) for the first time shortly beforehand.

I think that's all correct. Please let me know if you see any mistakes, spelling errors, differences in order, etc. Thanks to all the remixers named above, and many who were not (because this is not an exhaustive list of all the remixes here that I really love)!

I never realized how many vocal remixes there were on OCR.

Neat.

Yeah, I was surprised at first too. And this isn't even close to all of them. There were hundreds, probably thousands of them last time I searched.

@DevsmanHow do you search for remixes with lyrics?

(I tried some time ago with downloaded files, and a text search for "lyrics" turned up... well, hundreds of them. But I was never really sure if that search was conclusive.)

 

When you find a remix with a tag you want to search, you can just click the tag and it will bring up everything that has been tagged with that tag.

https://ocremix.org/tag/lyrics-original

https://ocremix.org/tag/lyrics-existing

You can also browse all tags here:

https://ocremix.org/tags

Though the site does warn that this is still beta and might not work well.

Many thanks again to all the Remixers who have contributed to the site!

For the two tracks that were removed in Disc 2, it looks like they were deleted. There's a page on OC ReMix that shows which remixes were deleted and why, and both of them are on it.

Hm, I took a look and it says they were removed by request. There are a whole lot of ReMixes from this author that were removed by request. Huh. Well, I suppose that's all anyone needs to know.
