Sadness and Sorrow v.2


Author Comments

NOTE: Just a quick heads up! You may have to turn up the volume a bit on this one. It is a bit on the quiet side (Unless my speakers are simply terrible and/or broken).

Before someone inevitably asks, the answer is no; this is not Naruto. It isn't related to the song "Sadness and Sorrow" on Naruto, nor did I even watch the anime at the time I wrote this. That is a great song, but this is completely unrelated aside from the coincidental sharing of titles. :P

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the actual commentary. I wrote this piece long ago, and I've come a long way musically since then. However, I have received several requests to remake this song. I've added a VERY simple intro, a nicer piano soundfont, some strings, and I've tweaked the volume in a few spots. I think it sounds a lot better, but you can compare if you'd like.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments! I would love to know your opinion, how I might improve this, or even what you imagine as you listen to this music. I read and respond to every review, so don't shy away! XD

Thanks in advance, and enjoy. :)

PS. I really need a decent strings sample for free. I have been using the string soundfont that comes with the FL Studio demo, but I can't stand it anymore. Know of any good samples for free?

"you never stood a chance to begin with, not you, nor Super Mario"

not only is this a powerful song, but the moment in which it starts playing is chilling, amazing work!

Thank you for the kind words!

I watched Power Star 4 when Iz a toodler. Man, what a fucking dark sprite movie.
This music is really sad! :,(

Every friggin' time I watch Power Star 4 and hear this tune, I'm reminded of just how much of a brutal downer the end to the series was...

This does not, in any way, shape, or form, have any notes that help relieve the tension when putting the two together. Yet it's because of that very thing that this song is a good one to use during a bad situation. (That, or Nothingness from Tekken 4. That song is copyrighted, though, so...)

Nice one, BlazingDragon.


Hauntingly beautiful! Wish there was more music like this out there
