LEAF XCEED Music Division goes pop! This is an 8-bit remix of Adam R. Young's (known better as Owl City) hit song called Fireflies. It's one of the popular songs that I actually liked and appreciated, so when I was stuck without ideas when trying to make something metal I ended up making my first real 8-bit remix ever. This one's completely from scratch with only the song, the instrumental version, FL Studio 9, a couple of NES plugins and my 2-day determination XD Enjoy!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not too shabby

really good, i just wish you would have left the vocal track in it
it would sound totally tight w/ the singer and the 8 bit background

rtnario responds:

I cannot and did not bother to extract one Adam Young from the original track. ^^; Thanks!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

love it

i loved the real song but this 8bit remix is just as good. i love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

rtnario responds:

If the original Fireflies wasn't made awesome by Owl City, I wouldn't have remixed it. But I did. So that only means...? XD Thanks.

Love it! one of my fav 8-bits now! i gave a 5 as well, this is a song needy of a 4.40
keep it up!

rtnario responds:

Above 4 would be fine for me as it's the average I aim for :) Thanks for the vote and review!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow!! This is incredible!

I boosted your score up .20 points, this song deserves anything above a 4.
The melodies are great and you did a very good job on this song! 10/10 5/5

rtnario responds:

I wish my overall average was always above 4 :< The melodies are straight from Owl City; I just remixed it as great as I possibly could with just 8-bit synths. Thanks!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


What the FUCK is this doing with a score lower then 4.5? This song is absolutely brilliant. It's beautiful beyond words. It's done with 8-bit instruments, and yet it evokes such an incredible scene, and the audioscape is just masterful. There is no possible way that someone could do any better with 8-bit instruments on this.

ikr. You should've seen the entry score before the bombs fell XD Thanks so much for the review, and about the UnderdogList...I dunno, I'm probably a bit above an underdog, but way below being popular in NG (I think) ^^; Have you heard YuYu Metal? It's probably my most popular song as of now...

Thanks again!
