Words can hardly describe the nostalgia and joy I experience every time I hear this song. You've done a fantastic job at taking what many people would consider a somewhat cheesey theme song and turning it into something that people can listen to and enjoy even without knowing the show that inspired it. Thank you.
You're very welcome! I'm glad to see that more people warmed up to this song and that it brings back memories to some people who used to watch "David the Gnome" when they were a kid. I just wish I came up with the David the Gnome theme myself! haha! At least all the other melodies are origional!
HEY RED 7!!! As always, I love your beat. I've never heard the original, but I can thoroughly enjoy it here. I can't get over how much I love your beats man. :)) I need to hear something from you that you made in 2008!!!!!!!
2008 didn't yield that many tracks. Sorry, but I had to go through some very horrible times and just didn't have the spirit. 2009 is here now and I'm hoping to bust out more songs that are more up to date with the times. Still trying to learn my style.
Cool Music ! poor style
I wish I could learn something from your comment. Sorry.
i already like the upbeat tune of the original, and this remix is a nice take on it + ..makes it more listenable for me.. haha. keep up the good work ^^;
I appreciate it man. I know you wrote this review in 2007 and I haven't responded until now but I hope to tantalize your ear buds with my new stuff and see your reviews more often as 2009 progresses.
Well, I've never heard the original before...
Simple introduction, not bad. I suppose it's a remix, so while I like the melody, I can't give you credit for it. I don't like that hihat, though...
Still, once the rest of it comes in, the highlight of this song is easily the percussion. They're some great samples and while the kick distorts a little bit now and then it's pretty good.
And, while I'm talking about clarity, might I mention how the song sounds remarkably clear in my headphones? I don't hear that kind of clarity every day so good job there.
Once the bass starts syncopating - or, at least, it goes off the offbeat every now and then - it doesn't sound as good. Maybe it's just my style but I'd rather it have stayed on the offbeat.
Your 8-bit NES-like synths are actually a pretty good choice. I didn't think they'd fit but they actually work. :O And the melodies/harmonies they play are great, too. Are they yours? Or part of the original as well?
There's not much to this song in terms of diversity - you change a little now and then but I don't hear any buildups, any huge changes, any quiet and calm, almost ambient interludes... this song could have done with that, it would have worked quite well.
Overall... I've never heard the original but this remix worked! :D Great job, even though it could have used a little improvement. Stop by my page sometime? :)
Im glad you enjoyed this. I ended up spending too much time fussing with the drums and hats than workin on the melodies. Only two of those melodies were from the show "David the Gnome" the intro while all the rest was my doing. To get a feel of the real song just type "David the Gnome" on www.video.google.com or youtube.com and you'll get an idea of how the real song went. Im glad this song came out so well with clarity. I spent many hours looking for that one sweet spot equalizing this. Even though I could have done a better job at making absolute sure that it was perfect sounding I didn't wanna use up too much of my time but I'm still glad with the outcome myself :)
Yes the 8-bit NES synths I had to create myself in Fruity Loops because therre were no presets I felt could match. The first melodie line from this synth was in the origional song however the second I had created. Like I said before youd just have to check out the origional.
Your absolutely right about the buildup part in my opinion. I wish I had atleast made a bigger one like in my previous song "Coniferous Blizzard"
I just want to say thanks for such an indepth review of my song! Ill definately keep these in mind while I work on my next projects.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
