Our first Persona ReMix is a short little humor piece from Mr. Dale North, who himself takes on the persona of the pharmacy owner in a hilarious vocal overtop the relevant theme. If you're like me, and I know I am, you'll find this rare interpreted glimpse inside the mind of a merchant non-player character very addictive . . . aww, who am I kidding, it's fun, funny, and retains musicality with a peppy beat anchored by low brass-ish bass, some ambient street noise on the intro and outro, and of course nobody messes with da vocal here. Well "sung" in the accent of a crabby old store-owner, with beautifully lecherous and generally repulsive lyrics that are totally believable; I suppose we all knew that in his heart Mr. North wants to be a dirty old man ^^, and here he gets to realize this most noble of vicarious desires. Wacky, zany and infectiously smile-inducing.

Just glad this is still up. The world has moved on...but some future generation will perhaps find the joy of appreciating this masterpiece as I have. One day.

This rivals The Music of My Groin for silly + raunchy lyrics. I love the vocal fluctuations, i.e. the rises in pitch at 0:43 and 1:21 and the parrot-like punctuations at 0:54 and 1:32. "My security cam record for me" has an odd inflection, but that can be excused by the fauxreign accent and the need to match the beat, and I can't stop laughing at "and you stupid ass whore" (smooth ad-lib). And of course the tropical instrumentation gives the mix a vacation-y, jovial feel.

Also, for those wanting to see the Flash video, I believe this is it.

Hahaha. Why does it have to be short... obviously not the best mix on the site, but I wish there was more stuff like this.

Hahaha, this is great. Lots of character going on here, and I can totally picture an old store worker singing this to himself. So much fun, I'll might just have to add this to my playlist for laughs. Goofy lyrics and catchy arrangement, gotta love it. Now to see this video........

Crazy stuff. Crazy.

I approve.

This song just came up on my playlist. I had to suppress laughter.

I always like comedic songs (well, within reason, I mean they have to at least be good to begin with). This one definitely does what it sets out to do... it's not serious or great quality, nor is it really trying to be--it's just a cranky and sketchy drug store owner. And hilarious.

Oh, and... since this is pretty old, the music video links no longer work. No one would still happen to have that floating around, would they? KF

Just recently downloaded all of mr. North's stuff, and I have to say that this is great! So obscenely crazy, and yet so addicting. Love all your stuff Dale, and look forward to more of it. Much more.

LMAO! You know, the mix is kinda' funny. But what's funnier is that I turn to here and it's DALE yet AGAIN!!

My actions exactlty :D. It seems the madness of Dale knows no ends...

on 2007-03-08 16:40:22

maybe? It's hard to say

LMAO! You know, the mix is kinda' funny. But what's funnier is that I turn to here and it's DALE yet AGAIN!! I swear!! The problem with the torrents is that they don't credit the author (cept maybe in the id3 tag that foobar doesn't show). Are all the best mixes by Mr. North?!!!

I dislike this remix, although I'm apparently one of few who do. I usually hate joke things in the first place, but getting onto ormgas to find this playing is really irritating, when compared to such great songs lying around the website.

It's annoying and unfunny, and belongs on a site dedicated to humor remixes rather than a site like this.

I played that game like SOOOOOOOOO long ago and the only real thing i rememner about it was the weird catchy japanese tune in the pharmacy... and so many years later i come across this, sweet.

This is a great peice. It's funny, the music's catchy, and overall a very good arragnement. The lyrics are smooth, and transition with the song's original melody, not to mention they are flat out hilarious. The samples are really good, and don't sound synthesized. Overall, very well done.

I was falling asleep in the library, trying to find a way to stay awake, when I found the Persona LiveJournal community link to overclocked and this ReMix.

It definitely kept me awake.

People who don't know the games might not get as much of a kick out of it as the ones that do, but it's *damned* funny anyway.

Not only was it amusing and kept me from snoring facedown on my laptop, the mix of the background music was chipper and fun, too.

This was great. It made my day.

I have to go play Persona II, now. Every time I walk into the Pharmacy, I'm going to hear this song. -_-

And I'm singing along too, darn it. *twitch*

Doh, doh doh doh, doh doh doh

Welcome to my pharmacy,
Drugs and pills as far as you can see
I enjoy your company
Just make sure you buy something from me

Please don't loiter, or lean on the wall
drinking coffee and having a ball

'Cause you damn kids always spill stuff on the floor
and you don't clean it up, *and you stupid ass whore

Don't you know that I used to know karate
I'll punch you in the pee-pee, or I can just call the cops

I like to look at hot girls
'specially cuties, boy they rock my world
Dirty man is how I'm known
Yes, I like the school girl uniform

I use the mirror in the corner of store
to see some boobies and even some more
Oh, hey, hot booby girl
I dropped something on the floor
hey could you bend over and pick it up

Don't you know my security cam record for me
so I can rewind it
and watch it to my heart's content

(* = I did this in one take, and I couldn't remember the words I had written earlier, so I made this line up off the top of my head)
