Lyrics written/performed: Paul Basila

Video: The Great Haaf

This piece was made entirely on livestream on my Twitch channel, including the recording session. It was a great chance to focus on my work and show my friends and fans how I get things done! You can follow my Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/paulybfromda303

It started as a Twitter poll for my followers to vote on which remix they'd like to see me do live. It's been a long time since I've done a remix from perhaps my favorite all-time Sonic game, Sonic Advance 3. It brings back wonderful memories of my high school days, challenging fellow classmates who also had this game with my GBA link cable.

The atmosphere of the music and the lyrics, as well as the video itself (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nh7USGOGaDM), is supposed to represent a competitive feel, a battle theme of multiple unknown outcomes. In a way, I also wanted to emulate some of the sounds and styles of my past to keep it unique, such as synths and drum sets. Some new instruments were created as well, to better match the target atmosphere.

Another fun fact was that when my videographer Haaf was going through searching for usable gifs, for some reason we were unable to find one of Cream running, or even flying. We found one of her spin-bounce and grinding. He came up with the idea of using that to bring in more of that competitive atmosphere. It goes to show you that even when things don't go completely as planned, you can still complete the job and make it even better than the original idea.

We hope you all enjoy this, and many thanks for all the support! Feel free to follow us all over!

You will never

Ever get the best of me

Because I've been trying

To be the man I wish to be

You're interfering

With this task I must complete

But you'll be sorry

I'll be there to watch you tremble in defeat

I'll be there to watch you tremble in defeat

The synths sound really good. I think the vocals could have been a little less filtered with the echo serving as a reverb but really can't dock anything off it. Gureat
