Default Favorite OCRemix Tracks?

So I was going through my OCRemix folder and realized I haven't been to the site in quite a long time.

I was wondering what some of your favorites are. I am looking for some new tracks to put on my Sansa and need some suggestions. I haven't been to the site in probably a year so I know there are plenty good ones I have missed.

I probably have a few others, but these are the few I remember off-hand.

Too many to name, but of the more recent stuff they've put up I greatly enjoy Detestation's Doorway, Vampire Spanker, Tattered Slippers, Cantata for Dancing: I. Mors ego sum mortis, and Snowfall on Forbidden Lands.

I love playing an old game for the first time and going to OCRemix to see what people have done with the music. A decent portion of my library has come from this site.

Edit: Sorry for the strange formatting

Edit the Second!: Nevermind

Dammit, you had to start the topic on the day I leave my iPod in the car and can't check the titles of the remixes I like

On the other hand, this is just as well. I have FAR TOO MANY favorites, so all I can do is list those whose titles I can actually remember off the top of my head. Still quite a few, though:


Wicked Orchestra (CV "Wicked Child." Indalecio already mentioned my other favorite remix of this theme, Wickedest Child)
Circuit Breaker (Elecman theme)
It's About Time (Flashman theme)
Tickle my Wily (Wily Castle 1)
A Clockwork Vampire (CV3 Clock Tower theme)
Pools of Rust (CV3... Forest theme, I think)
Phoenix Symphonic (FFIV airship)
Surface of the Moon (FFIV, self-explanatory)
Rachel's Gift (FFVI, "Forever Rachel")
Return of the Phoenix (FFVI "Decisive Battle")
Seized with Fury (FFVI battle mix)
Squaresoft Variation (Terra's theme, arranged by Secret of Evermore/Elder Scrolls: Oblivion composer Jeremy Soule)
Terra in Black (Another Terra theme)
This Heart (Seiken Densetsu 3 "Delicate Affection")
The Trial in Concert (CT, the trial)

The best thing about this topic is that, in seeking out the URLs and reading what other people posted, I found that there are plenty of new remixes I had never seen or heard before. I'll have to get to downloading as soon as I get home.

I'll second The Ken Song and Seized with Fury.

A few more favorites that haven't been mentioned:

Atonement
(Frog and Magus' Theme)

Jethro and Vash at the Fair (another CT, done like Jethro Tull)

Advance with Caution (First level of Bionic Commando)

Nothing but a Pile of Dance Moves!
(Cheesy SotN)

Crystalline Caverns (Yoshi's Island caves)

Braving Tal Tal Heights (Link's Awakening and self-explanatory)

Ok, I'll stop now.

It's a little unfortunate I guess, but I really only make an effort to really enjoy a mix if it's extremely unusual, has an amazing source track, or is by somebody I really like (or the occasional all three).

Landstalker 'Rare Mineral Addict' - I recommend basically everything by this guy (although Mucho Dollar is kinda boring to me for some reason) but I don't want to just list his stuff, since I know how ridiculously much I love his music. I have all the original works he posted to his website (they're even cooler than his remixes generally) and the album he played piano for his sister's vocals on.

Earthbound Dreaming on Distant Shores and Twoson Hits the Road - I don't like Earthbound as much as anyone else, but the music is awesome. 'Dreaming' I listened to for days on end, with nothing else. The Twoson mix is powerfully emotional in my opinion, and djpretzel's recent tracks have continued the trend. Plus I really dig the folksy style.

Mario Paint 'Intense Color'and Mario 64 'Spinlock'
Two of the three mario series remixes I really like, and they're similar in a way. I can't describe these mixes, they are must listens.

Wild Arms 2 'Lord Blazer', Parasite Eve 'PMS' and Tsugunai 'Static Wonderland - ktriton does this weird jazz stuff that is going to make him my new favorite remixer if he keeps putting stuff out, with these three pieces being...uhh, better than the other two. I don't know which I would say is my favorite because they're all that good.

finally, Bahamut Lagoon 'Dragons of Paradise' - this was one of the first remixes I ever listened to, and still one of my favorites. The soundtrack is in my opinion pretty underrated, and even though the mix leans on a kind of cheesy gimmick I love it.

Indeed! I have literally only listened to one song on OCRemix (One Girl in All the World) and despite digging it, felt intimidated about delving deeper due to the excessively large number of songs. Nice to have other people do the filtering...

One Girl in All the World is one of my favorites to this day.

I used to have their new song RSS feed, but there were so many new songs coming out and I didn't like half of them that I stopped.

That's actually not a bad choice, although a lot of other The Wingless tracks are even better in my opinion, including its corollary All the World in one Girl, Teardrinker, and The Scarlet Halls of Night.

Great mix. Hypnotic, almost. A lot of Disco Dan's stuff is good, like Triforce Majeure.

And I'm glad to see One Girl In All The World getting some love. It has special meaning to me, so I wasn't going to mention it in case that had clouded my judgment.

Chances are you won't like a fair amount of our recommendations, but let us know what you do end up enjoying.

most of the chrono cross remixes are wonderful, especially Nikki Learns A Song, Radical Dreamers Angelic, Radical Punks, and the absolutely stunning Another Inspiration .

Also, pretty much every Guardian Legend song. I loved that game, and never really thought of it as a fantastic soundtrack, but man, these remixers have done some amazing fucking things with that. Check out Rosenthorne by The Wingless, who does fantastic guitar work. Heck, i can pretty much recommend any mix he has done.

Mega Man remixes abound, and they're almost all stellar, owing to the fantastic source material. Highly recommend Disco Dan's Blue Lightning , and those mega man 4 dustman remixes.

Street Fighter has another set of fantastic works, but the cream for me is the aforementioned Ken Song, and Jungle Jazz , a remix of Makoto's stage theme by the omnipresent McVaffe, another guy whose remixes are pretty much assured to be fantastic.

Finally, i'd be remiss if i didnt mention super mario 2, which has some of the best music koji kondo ever did. Most spectacular are the remixes of the main theme-- Gypsy Jazz, which is a django-esque guitar play, and SuperBuckJazz by Santa Cruz-based big band Estradasphere. The double-bass solo and sax solo are just freaking amazing. If this track doesnt have you just grooving, you have no soul.

That should be enough to get you started.

Hey, Shivam already mentioned Jungle Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, and SuperBuckJazz.

"Ocarina Boogie" by The Dark Lounge seems to have been removed based on some tightened criteria for inclusion, but you can find it here.

"Hyruel Party Mix" is a good song with a generic, unenthusing title. SAiNT 420's take on "Song of Storms" is good. "LostWoods South Central" is an interesting take on the LttP tune. Neskvartetten's "Waltz for Zora" is a very legitimate bebop take on the Zelda theme. "Hey Saria, How YOU Doin' " by Seifer isn't on OCRemix, but it's one of my absolute favorites.

Mustin's "La Samba De Agua" from Mario 3 is superb. "Da Phunky Forest" from SMW is likely too eccentric for most, but I like it.

I don't really scour OC remix... at all. But I DO make it a point to download all their "Albums." More fodder for the Ipod.

Out of all of them Rise of the Star and Project Chaos are the only ones I can listen to from start to end without compulsively hitting the skip button.

Team Gato is the only remix you'll ever need. Actually, it's so epic that it transcends the label of mere "remix" and becomes more of a life-changing experience.

The Atomizer is similarly amazing .

Ok I downloaded everything in the thread so far and put it on my Sansa. It will take me awhile to listen to them all (between podcasts) but I will let you know.

Thanks again everyone, I knew you wouldn't let me down.

Holy crap, it's amazing. I googled the guy, Joe Darwish, and he has a few mp3s floating around.

Not OCRemix, and way too damn short, but I looooooooove this.


And if I'm going to be linking to youtube, I can't leave out this guy.


An actual OCRemix: Brainsick Metal.

Also: hopefully vgmix.com will actually come back one day, because there were several remixes that were only hosted there that I really liked.
