OCR00753 - Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time "Pachelbel's Ganon"

Recommended Posts

Nice. I really got into this remix. At first I was having a hard time picking out the parts that were the OoT songs, but once I did it was like a whole new way of looking at them. I didn't feel bored of any particular part, which is what I look for in remixes or songs in general.. I can't stand when a song is repetitive. So, in conclusion, I enjoyed 'Pachelbel's Ganon' very much. :)

Oh, god! I really liked this one!! (And yes, i'm a fan of Zelda series (i have 'em all...))

I was pretty doubtful about this piece at first, but once it managed to get into the WinAmp playing list, i was forced down to my knees.

rating: 10/10

The first time I heard this one, I just thought "WTF?! Where's the Ganon theme? Actually, where are any of the themes?!" Then I read what djp actually wrote, and suddenly I could pick them out distinctly.

This track has a somber, dark mood to it, but the woodwind-ish Zelda's Lullaby somehow adds a feeling of hope to it. All in all, it combines to make one friggin KICKARSE remix. And I'm a big fan of the original Zelda themes, moreso than of the remixes. So that's saying something.

I love that EP in the intro

How come you fools can't recognize this song? FOOLS!

This song's got a great name! Clever, I would have never though of something like that

When the chorus comes in singing Zelda's Lullaby thats where I really fall in love then moves onto a guitar solo, I wish I was this skilled!!

I just think you should have the rest of Zelda's lullaby in here as well as like another verse or something, not in the chorus though.

Anyways, Great Job djp! Keep it up!!

I personally love these mixes that depart from the original. When I download something that's almost a direct transcription with a few barely noticeable changes - yawn. This, I like. Real nice job, djp.

This is too catchy. WAY too catchy! :D I think I've listened to it like 5 times in row. Really nice work all around, especially with the melody adaptations. I'm really digging the cello DJP used in this...it sounds very familiar to me, but I can't place who it's from. Some Roland/Edirol product perhaps? And it's strange, I recognize half the instruments in this song too, like the classical guitar and the hi-hat samples.

Well, it makes no difference either way. Excellent job all around, and very listenable. Great job on the mixing, too. Everything sounds clear and professional. Despite the lack of Ganon's theme, I'll give this a 10 outta 10. D

yarr!!!

i most certain;y enjoy this song. I rather like what you do with the bas around the 3:00 climax-ish area.

also- in the post, when you said that you used pachelbel's canon as part of the background, do you mean Mozart's pachelbel's canon?

I have pretty much the entire content of this website on my MP3 player. Whenever I make a 70-minute CD-R to introduce people to OCR, this tune is the last song on it. The last song is always the one you wouldn't want to put anywhere else because it would make any other piece look bad. Pachelbel's Ganon is the reason I fell in love with this site and I don't think it has been surpassed yet. This one is the best in show and bow in reverence of it.

As im listening to this, i can't understand why you thought that people would go up in arms about it, but thats what i get for being new :) , very nice composition/insturment choice. Especialy liked the woodwinds with Zelda's Lullaby.

Excellent work, i like to put this on just before i fall asleep, it's the kind of gentle sound you can just relax to. i love the way this feels.

this mix is the reason i found OCRemix 3 years ago. i was searching for Ganon on google, and i kept seeing "pachelbel's Ganon" popping up. I thought i'd see what it was all about, and wow! I managed to get my whole IT class (about 25 of us) singing along to this, even though i was the only one who had played the game.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? How can I express what I think of this song.

"Too beautiful for words" comes to mind. I'm absolutely in love with this. From beginning to end.

I'm 21, 6'3" tall 240lb ex-football player, and this song made me cry. Yeah. Out loud. Couldn't stop. Played it everywhere I went for a week straight, and still remains on every mix CD I burn.

Really, I'm trying to think of something educated and "judge-like" to say, like "the beat transitions nicely from strong to soft at around 1:50," but even that won't do this justice.

Beat, instruments, tone, flow, POWER, all are perfect.

Maybe not my favorite "rocking out" song, but I would say that this is hands down the best song I've ever heard in my life.

And yeah, post 1, made an account just to share my feelings.
