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

Recommended Posts

Pachelbel's Ganon? Hahah! That's rather witty. As said before, Clearly some of your best work, DJP. Very relaxed. Makes me think of the title screen again. It's much different then the songs alone, yet similar enough to be within the game and not sound out of place. Brilliant.

Finally I have found the words for it: helps you contemplate, reflect, and relax while listening. The beat, the mood, and the guitar is awesome. An awesome salute to the original, as well as a very unique, individual piece.

This is my #1 favorite OC Remix of all time.

I've been going to OC Remix for the music for many years now (though only recently did I join the forums), but this is the one that's had the greatest impact on me. Not only is it a great remix (that's a given!), but it really brings me back to when my friends and I at the UW dorms the first year would much more constantly listen to OCRemix. Brings back lots of great memories listening to it, not even related to OoT. In fact, this remix was one of the main reasons I decided to play the game in the first place.

Definately a staple of my OCR playlist; such a different style with this one. Zelda's Lullaby around 1:29 has such a different feel to it than it did in game. Love it 8)

This was the first song I heard from OverClocked Remix, thanks to a link from Zelda Dungeon several years back. I fell in love with it and thats what introduced me to video game remixes. It's beautiful and truly one of the best I've heard on the site.

I just finished Ocarina of Time for the first time, so I've been listening to a lot of the OoT songs on the site. I love how you implemented Zelda's Lullaby in there. You did a great job with this. ;)

Great mix, great great mix. I <3 it. And the title is punny.

12 pages of replies of your loyal legions showering you with praise? Lord Pretzel, you don't have to worry about offending the purists or anyone. Your mixes are all amazing, and have a world-altering quality to it. I think that Thou Canst Unite All The World With Thine Holy Melodies, O Father Divine.

Amen.

I joined this site with the sole intent of praising DJPretzel for this amazingly masterful, haunting and beautifully arranged piece of music. I love the way you use Zelda’s Lullaby as a refrain in the chorus. It works so well and I’ve not stopped listening to this track since I downloaded it earlier on today. Magnificent. Thanks for the experience! I’ll definitely check out more of your stuff now :)!!.

I'm listening to this one as we speak. I love this song. The percussion itself was enough to make me fall in love with it. The organ samples and the melodies used here were excecuted with such percision and skill, this stands as one of my top ten songs on this site.

So, I'm new to the community here and I'm just now getting a taste of what a remix actually IS...

I think this is definitely one of the songs I can look up to and honestly try and dissect the meaning of the word "REMIX".

Wonderful job. This is something I would pay money to sit in a cafe and order expensive coffee while I listened in a euphoric state! :sleepdepriv:

I listen to this remix a lot. It's melancholy, euphoric, and nostalgic simultaneously. Brilliant work. I'd love to hear more like these. I think you made the Title Theme and Zelda's Lullaby meld together perfectly. I love it. So relaxing...

:banghead:

The intro reminds me of something and

I

Can't

Think

Of

What...

Anyway, I love this mix.

It so mellow, dreamy, hazy, foggy.

It's sort of like that edge of consciousness when you start to wake up from dreaming, and you can't tell what's reality and what's dream. Especially the echoing Zelda's Lullaby as the chorus, that was slick.

I actually had done some vocals for this song. Still sitting on my laptop down in the cellar. This is a good one though. This is the song that you will remember DJ Pretzel for. Check it out NOW.

This is my favorite song on the site right now. I kind of wish that more mixes did this kind of thing - taking the melody and changing it so much that it's wholly separate from the original. The mix is no longer the theme with accoutrements and things put there to evoke nostalgia, but a truly original composition, a new song on its own terms. And this song is just wonderful - the other day I put it on repeat for quite awhile. The use of the theme is just... mindblowing. And the choices of instruments/tones/effects work perfectly. It all comes together to create something very melancholic, and very beautiful. The chorus, if you will, evokes a rather vivid kind of imagery for me, and the atmosphere of the track as a whole is unique and nearly tangible. It's quite an accomplishment. Very good work.

Though I'm not the first to do so, I've joined the site solely because I was so compelled to praise you for this amazing piece of music. It's been on repeat for the past several days, and I still find myself enjoying it ever bit as much as the first time. There's something really evocative about this piece that gets the artist in me thinking in new directions. It's soothing, a little melancholy, and wonderfully pensive. It's become my working music, keeping me going during crunch time in my project development (video game design) class.

I have to say that the chord progression you're using here is something I find myself actually favoring OVER the original. Exquisite work, a beautifully reflective piece that is wildly different from its roots without losing sight of them. Gorgeous, reflective, and soothing.

....and I was wondering if you would give me permission to play this song as a background piece for a drawing it inspired (emotionally, since it has nothing to do with zelda)? The picture is on deviantART, and it really needs this song to accompany it to evoke the proper mood. I've compromised by linking to the song itself (on the OC ReMix Youtube vid) and encouraging people to play it while viewing, but it would make me the happiest person on earth if you would grant me permission to embed the song. dA is a stickler for formalities when it comes to copyrighted material.

Anyway, even if you decline, I cannot thank you enough for sharing this amazing arrangement, and for the inspiration it's given me.

One of the best-named remixes on the site, for sure. It's really liberal, but the source melodies are pretty apparent, and the soundscape is good. I think i'd notice it more if I was more familiar with the original music, I think.

The idea to mix these tracks all together is pretty cool, and the execution is strong as well, I really like the guitar sample too. From the looks of things, this resonates with a lot of people too, so nice work. :-)

Recommended.

To be brief, this mix has become my favorite song. Not just from this site, but since the first time I heard it, it has been the one song that has been my absolute favorite. As in, no other song I own has captured my attention and my imagination as much as this one.

The two themes blend seamlessly and swirl together to create an intoxicating audio experience. Each time I listen to it, I hear things about it I hadn't caught before. Even after hundreds of listens, I still find an immense amount of gratification and wonder from this one song. After only about 9 or 10 months, it has become my top played song in itunes and I've listened to it even more in my car on cd. The total has come now to 364. The next most played song comes in at 276, and coincidentally it's one of yours; The Koan of Drums.

The only gripe I have at all is that on the sections where the bass drum restarts its beat, it's a bit overpowering through headphones. But really, it's so minor I only notice it when I'm paying attention.

I am a huge fan of your work, if it hasn't already been obvious and I always look forward to any works you may post.
