A remix of "Oil Ocean Zone" from "Sonic The Hedgehog 2" on Sega Genesis

In case you are wondering, this is the song that plays during "Oil Ocean Zone Act 1". It also plays on Act 2

I have no clue why this is my most viewed/downloaded song, it's honestly not that good, but thanks I guess

The reason why Oil Ocean's Act 1 music plays in Act 2 is because Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released on Tuesday, November 24th, 1992, which is about 2 years before the release date of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (February 2nd, 1994), and that game was the first to have different music for each act

Thanks for your review and 10! Means a lot on a submission as old as this one

i discovered this by slight accident and its quite good, currently questioning those tags though.

BallinFatty responds:

Hahah I forgot a had those. I know which 2 you're referring to now. Thanks for the 10 though, means a lot, especially on an ancient song such as this one

Sorry this is so late

Ok you got the right idea.

I like how you structured it. It does have that cool "hip" beat, it's got a bit of detail. But unfortunately the instrument selection ain't the best. And I'm not gonna be a hippocrate, cause I do the same thing and I know it lol. But it sounds like the program you're using is uber-retro. New program/equipment needed, eh? Again, I'm the same way. I use some program from 2006. Kinda sad yeah but I been broke for the longest time. XD

Keep it up. I'm likin what I hear


BallinFatty responds:

right now i'm using FL studio 8, sadly, its only the demo version. i have no idea where/how to get a legit copy, plus, im pretty broke too. i try to make do with what i got. this is one of my older tracks. i honestly have no idea how this is the most popular of all my tracks. i have lots of songs out there that are way better than this.

what program do you use?? the quality of what i heard so far surpasses mine by a long shot

anyways, thanks for the review, 9, and your time in listening. oh yea, and you probably figured it out, but this is the song that refered me to yours...

It's so...ironic! :D

BP should play this as they are cleaning up the massive ocean of oil they caused out in the Gulf! :D Great job! :)


BallinFatty responds:

hahahahah they definatly should. a song entitled "oil ocean" hell, this should be their theme song.

hahah thanks again for the review, 9, and yur time in listening

BallinFatty responds:

thanks. altho this isnt (in my opinion) now that i look back at it, not one of my best. but recently according to everybody else, it is a epic piece of work. idk why

thanks again, glad you enjoyed it!! :D
