Overclocked Favorites: Just for fun May 23, 2008

Posted by eric22222 in General, VG Music.

Sometimes, making a great orchestrated symphony may not be as exciting as it used to be. No, sometimes you need to mix things up, and just get a laugh out. These songs take a much more light-hearted look at these classic songs.

Hillbilly Rodeo: Bubble Bobble, NES
Bubble Bobble was a weird game in itself. But this song… The Bubble Bobble theme done over with banjo and occasional animal sounds. I really don’t have anything to say about this, other than at 1:21 things get pretty hilarious.

Rabbit Joint Cover: The Legend of Zelda, NES
Yes. This one is laugh-worthy. A lyrical interpretation of the Legend of Zelda theme, which tells the tale of how Link saves Hyrule. The thing that keeps me rolling is the voice. There’s such… gusto in that singing. I never noticed before, but it sounds like he dubbed himself over (singing falsetto) starting at 0:44.

ROBOVoice: Final Fantasy V, SNES
The lyrics here were done through a computer program, so they’re kind of difficult to understand. On the song’s page, there’s a tab labeled “lyrics,” which, not surprisingly, shoes the lyrics. This song is sung from the perspective of a Final Fantasy fanatic, which makes it all the better.

The funny thing about djpretzel’s Hillbilly Rodeo is that he didn’t do any effects on his voice in order to sing like that. I always thought he did some crazy pitching effects on his voice or something like that, until he song the vocals while I was visiting his house. SHOCKING! 🙂

Thanks as always for your ReMix comments, Eric!
