SNES Final Fantasy 5 Remember

OST: Reminiscence
Remix: Remember
Sheet: None


I never actually completed final fantasy 5. However, one night after playing through a few hours of it I decided that I’d allow myself to skip ahead and browse the SPCs. I found a lot of music that I didn’t expect to find in a final fantasy game and it made me pretty happy. I learned this song right away and recorded it because I felt it was a good model for how this game has different music.

SNES Final Fantasy 5 Nostalgia

Remix: Nostalgia
Sheet: None yet


All those things you could have once had. Reaching to touch them as your fingers fold against the glass cover. It’s just a 2d image of what was once in your permanant grasp. It’s gone now, and you are changed. Where is the past, where are you.

NES Ninja Gaiden Glass Ninja Tears


Mp3: Glass Ninja Tears
Sheet: None yet


For a few years I played around with this song. I tracked it a few times (in FT2) and one day when I was sitting around on the piano I decided to record it. Back then I was arranging stuff on a very regular basis so I could upload it to VGMix1. I was always pretty happy with this song and it was well received by those who remembered the original song.

Dos PC Skyroads Sad Song

Level Sample

OST: None yet
Remix: Sad Song
Sheet: None yet


Back when BBS downloads and shareware CD’s were the primary way I would receive games I came across this game “Skyroads“. Initially I didn’t care that much for the music because honestly the game was pretty hard. However, sometimes after playing it for a few hours I would find myself going through the music in my head.

I didn’t think much about it, or try to remix it (I didn’t do remixes back then) but it stuck in my head. Then years later when I was sitting down aimlessly at the piano I started to play this song but couldn’t remember where it was from. When I finally did figure it out I went back and played skyroads after which I did this arrangement.

The arrangement itself does not follow the skyroads melody note for note as I tired to make it more emotional but I think it’s easily recognizable.

Dos PC Tyrian Composition in Q

Deli Shop

Remix: Composition in Q
Sheet: PDF


I had always sifted through the jukebox in the tyrian setup and this song seemed hidden (since in the shareware version I don’t really think it was played). My friend created a tracked version of the song for fun and when I heard it I decided to learn it. Once I learned it I realized that it was actually pretty good so I recorded it and upload it to VgMix1 since tyrian remixes were pretty rare.

SNES Final Fantasy 3/6 Kids run through city

OST: Kids Run
Remix: Mp3
Sheet: Piano collections version


When I first became interested in recording remixes a friend of mine showed me a remix collection of Final Fantasy music that had been published on CD. I didn’t think much of it and I decided that I would start making my own “higher” quality arrangements. I learned this version of “kids run through city” from the Final Fantasy Piano Collections. It took me a while to get this song the way I wanted and since it was my first recording there were several technical and practiacl mistakes. I think by the end it took me around 100 takes in the living room of a house with no air conditioning on a very hot july evening. That is something I will not endure again :)
