Hello once again, NG! This is the eleventh of 26 submissions (or so) that I'll upload this year for a project entitled Project 26: Submission a Week. This project is in collaboration with NG user Chocosoda (check him out!) Each other week in 2011, I'll upload a musical piece for a total of 26.

It's March, and that means it's FFVIII month. What better way to celebrate the release of Suckerpunch (which I went out to see tonight -- and you totally should, too!) than with a nice boss theme to round out your weekend?

This is "Force Your Way," the boss theme from FFVIII (duh), with a few instrument changes, part modifications and a new drum track. In other words, this is a by-the-books Joshy676 job. xD

And, this week, Chocosoda collaborated with me on this one. It's good to have him back.

TIME/TEMPO: 1'54"/180 BPM (4/4 time, with a measure of 5/4 and a measure of 6/4)
KEY: E minor/F# minor/A minor
ORIGINAL THEME: "Force Your Way" by Nobuo Uematsu
MIDI TRANSCRIPTION: "SinclairC" at VGMusic.com

At first, I thought this was the wrong one.

Served me right for making judgments before the song even picked up. Nice job you two! Keep up the good work.

I was wondering who would get trolled by the intro! Thanks, Shawn. :D
