This isn't quite finished yet, but it's fairly close. The arrangement is done, and I've just got to fix up the production a bit.
This is a remix of 'Life in the Mines' ('Winky's Walkway') from the SNES game 'Donkey Kong Country.' I used a lot of piano in this one. Probably a bit too much. XD
The guitar at the end was a lot of fun too. ^_^

I've slipped in a few cameos from other songs. They are, in order of appearance:
0:20 - Green Brinstar (Super Metroid)
1:01(piano) - Cave Dweller Concert (Donkey Kong Country) [the bit at 2:08]
2:29 - Mining Melancholy/Kanon's Klaim (Donkey Kong Country 2)

A few people have pointed out that some of the piano sounds like a Final Fantasy song (I think it was 'Suteki Da Ne'). That's just a coincidence though. I'd never even heard the song before I made this remix.

Classic game sounding

A great piece of {QUALITY} sounds came out very {SMOOTHLY} i thought it could have had a more longer feel but what you did have was pretty good i thought, it is very {GAME} sounding cant think of the game but theres some simu;arities to an old game maybe something from mario bros or something, but anyways besides all that it ran smooth, and was pleasent with abit of cuteness, i liked it, so with all that said i really enjoyed your work today.

For some better outcomes my suggestion probably would be make it {LONGER} some new and differant mixes wouldnt hurt either.

Hey there Sock

Great job on this song I love it keep up the good work my friend


Hey how's it going? Nice to see you're still making some good stuff. This one doesn't quite match some of your better ones but then it's only a WIP, so I'm interested to hear the completed version.

great :)

awesome can't wait to hear the full version ^^


This was a beautiful song you created,the melody sounded really good and the quality was perfect,honestly it didn't have too many similarities to the mine theme in Donkey Kong Country till about 3 minutes in but regardless it was a wonderful song to listen to and you should be real proud of yourself.
