Stuff I Used To Listen To In Internets 1.0

Otherwise known as all the crap I used to have on Real Player. LOL, yes I used that hunk of junk before I ever switched to MP3's because of how small the files were in comparison.

Nowadays it's like whatever, but every now and then I realize I had songs back then that aren't inexactly easy to find fact, some of them I can't find whatsoever. For instance, there's this enhanced midi version of Castlevania's Vampire Killer that is ABSOLUTELY. FUCKING. PERFECT. Just the timing, everything in this remix is fucking perfect.

And now I can't find it.

Also Sade's "This Is No Ordinary Love" had a remix that was awesome, but I can't find anywhere anymore...and trust me, I've looked! There are some songs that have translated well over the years, but ultimately there's some songs I'll probably never be able to find again...and some that are possibly lurking on a data c.d. somewhere, moldering in my storage shed.

Or on one of my ten Zip discs. Yeah, you remember that? 10 bucks per 100 MB disc. OHHHHH BOY, I REMEMBER AOL AND THOSE OLD BROWSERS FROM BACK IN THE DAY. COMPUSERVE AND WHAT-NOT.

Man it sucked being poor, but these songs..just every now and then it haunts me, y'know?

So, let's see what I can find...either the actual songs, or translations thereof that is close.

Castlevania - Vampire Killer (this heavy metal remix by Ultracomicon is the closest that I can find to the mix I was speakin' of. Seriously, it even has the pause before the overreaching on it's own it's just fuckin' awesome! Not as good, musically speakin', as the original version I speak of...but man, is this is a great cover!)

And while we're on Castlevania remixes I used to listen to back in Internets 1.0...

Castlevania - Bloody Tears (Heavy Version)

DIG that fucking coda, man!!!

Sade - This Is No Ordinary Love (out of all the remixes I've listened to currently up on Youtube, this is the closest to the one I'm thinkin' of...and it's damn near nothing like it. Erg. Still, good remix is good, so enjoy~!)

Jim's Big Ego - Addicted To Stress

Face to Face - Won't Lie Down

Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag

Lost Prophets - Shinobi Versus Dragon Ninja

Mindless Self Indulgence - Bitches (y'know, THAT Pokemon/Dancing Pikachu AMV)

Cowboy Bebop - Tank! (you have NO idea how big of a weeaboo I was back then...but Cowboy Bebop and pretty much EVERYTHING on Toonami was godly, y'knowwhatImean? Undeniable. Truth.)

And just because, music from two of my fave games from that era. Man, do you guys remember Sierra's adult brand of games? 'Cuz I remember Sierra's adult brand of games, and I ain't talkin' 'bout Leisure Suit Larry or that weird labyrinthine RPG with Elvira.

No, I'm talkin' about Phantasmagoria (the first one, not the second which was fail in comparison), The 7th Guest, and Gabriel Knight.

Oh hell yes.

Phantasmagoria - Consumite Furore

The 7th Guest - Skeletons in my Closet

Well, there's plenty other songs that I COULD post but that'll do for now, y'know? Next time, be on the lookout for a healthy dose of rage-inducing hard rock and straight-up, no bull heavy metal.

'Cuz I'm kinda in the mood for some hard rock and straight-up, no bull heavy metal.

See ya then!

P.S. - Holy shit, how many of my posts have Jim's Big Ego in it? That's not even spelled properly, it should be Jims'. Anyway, I've really gotta make sure I'm not recycling songs TOO much here at Sooth(e)...>XD


  1. I forgot about Real Player!

    That thing took over everything else on your computer as soon as you downloaded it. It needed an update every 20 minutes.

    And it also... Wait... Hey, that sounds just like Adobe Acrobat.

    (P.S. There is a male enhancement ad right under this comment box that includes the word "harder"... )

  2. those are awesome tunes dude! :D
