This one is old as the constitution. But who cares.

Yeah, decided to do a take on the Monkey Island theme. Cause come on, who doesnt like that melody. Tried to recreate it as close to the original as I could inn the first sequence, and then I did 2 alternaticve melodies after that before I finished with a slightly different version of the first one again. The vocals are obviously ripped from "Curse of the Monkey Island", and I managed to find an old April 1st. joke on Monkey Island 5-interview, which I used in the middle section.

Enjoy ... or hate!

Since 1991 I love this song with all my heart... now is the symbol of the many afternoons spent in front of the computer when I was a kid... I almost fall tears.... thanks SkyMarshall!

It captures the feel of the Monkey Island games very well.

You should revisit this with the addition of tracks from Escape From Monkey Island and Tales of Monkey Island.



SkyMarshall responds:

I should - and I will =) Thanks man.


I like the melody!
The dialog in the beginning works good with then music!

SkyMarshall responds:

Thanks man! Tried to recreate the feeling I have from the previous games :)

I am Murray, the invincible demonic skull!

Point and click games ftw, u dnt see many these days :'(

SkyMarshall responds:

No you dont. And that is just sad.
BUT - LucasArts just re-made Monkey Island 1.
It's heading for X-Box Live in a little while. (just so you know)

And thanks for the review =)

Awesome job!

It's not every day you get the chance to listen to an awesome remix/remake of an awesome song from an awesome game! (alot of awesome?)
But what I'd like to hear, is a trance or dance remix of this old tune :D I think you'd do a great job if you did that :D

Just love the caribbean feel from this song, and you made a good job on the other melody :)
Cant find anything bad about this, just another piece of awesomeness :P


Keep it up! :D

SkyMarshall responds:

4x AWESOME right back at you, lad.
A faster dance-remix might happen one day. I actually checked out if it is possible when I made this one - and yes - it can be done. The only problem is that the speed becomes a little hazzle to make cool. So I cant keep the original flow of the melody and still keep it cool, it has to be changed around drastically to fit the faster trance-genre. If I were to put a dance kick in the speed THIS ONE goes in, it would be around 170 beats per minute - which makes it a hardcore-song:P (just tap the beat with your finger as you listen, and you'll see what I mean)

But one day when the motivation is up, I'll give it a go and see what happens.
After all, it is maybe the best game-song ever made.

Thanks for the 10 man!
