"Holly Jolly Spekkio" Jolly ol Spekkio's Theme Remix by Agatio
Seriously, who comes to a music blog to see this! To punish you, here is a link to an annoying song multipled by annoyance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk9ltTQm4S8 It's also kind of funny, so go listen to it if you have a minute (you wont survive longer than a minute, trust me)
So i actually posted this on the old site and completely forgot to repost here.... fail. So this is one of my early attempts at remixing videogame songs.
Here's what i had to say back then:"I've always though that Delightful Spekkio (or Jolly Ol' Spekkio in the DS port) was far and away the best song in the Chrono Trigger soundtrack. However there arn't any really good remixes of this amazing song. So how do you make one of the best songs ever even better? Why, remake it as an ice stage theme of course! The ice levels in video games have always far and away been my favorites, so i tried to take the original Spekkio theme (which had a very distinct tropical vibe) and turn it into an ice level type theme. Right now i dont have a name. any suggestions?" LeviathanVII (who i dont think is around anymore.... T^T) came up with the idea of "Holly Jolly Spekkio" (it was aroudnd christmas) and ilike it enough to keep it. Anyway, here's what i have to say about it now: It's actually not too terribly bad, but the drums dont really fill out enough or have enough variation. The song as a whole really doesnt have variation. The mastering on it also leaves some to be desired. Most people wont notice it, but i still cringe at some parts of it. I hope you enjoy!
In case you're wondering that picture was actually my back yard after a huge blizzard a few years ago.
I don't really post stuff too often, but if you want more of something similar you can subscribe if you want. I have an interesting re-instrumentation of Dire Dire Docks from Super Mario 64 that i also forgot to repost (and apparently forgot to post to youtube... harddrive digging time) that should be up withen the next 2-3 weeks, so at least stick around for that.
Im also very close to getting down a solo piano version of Dire Dire Docks. Would you be interested in seeing that recorded live while im at my Grandma's with her awesome grand piano? Let me know in your comment (you are leaving a comment right?) whether your interested.
In the point of comments please leave either a positive OR a negative comment (yes, im Jirard now) if it's not too terribly much trouble ^.^ (if negative, remember i made this before i knew what i was doing. dont flame me!) Thanks all!
