It’s been a while since I did a big music bash here. And since Halloween is this weekend, I thought I would dedicate this post entirely to remixes of what may be the most remixed song in history:
Flandre Scarlet’s theme from Touhou.
That was the original song as it appeared in Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Remixes galore after the break. (This will be by no means a complete list, it’s just a few of my favorites. There’s still more mixes that I also like, though. I really had trouble deciding which ones were going into the post here.)
Jeux Interdits is a rock/metal remix brought to us by the legendary IOSYS. I love IOSYS, because they don’t have only one style of music. Their stuff ranges from Cirno’s Perfect Math Class to Jeux Interdits to Phantasmagoria Mystical Expectation. I’m quite sure they have a song out there for everybody.
dBu Music did a great job with this one. Slow and relaxing one minute, fast and crazy the next. And even though it isn’t official art for the song, that picture of Flan is just awesome.
I knew this one was a keeper thirty seconds in. That intro pwnz.
Mere words cannot describe the Virus Key rendition of U.N. Owen. Symphonic music like this is epic.
Because classic guitar renditions are always nice. This one is quiet, relaxed, and hauntingly beautiful. In fact, I may say that this is my favorite U.N. Owen remix.
… Opera? Why, yes. Indeed.
This one is also brilliant. And that image is a perfect lead-in to the next one…
This beautiful rendition by EastNewSound/Nayuta portrays both the lovey-dovey and insane psychotic sides of Flandre. And it’s delightfully creepy. Therefore, I love this song.
I hope I haven’t scared you away, because now that I’ve shown you the insane side of Flan, let’s change gears again. This song has no creepiness in it, but it does have Patchy on the castanets.
And for our finishing act:
I didn’t see what I just saw, did I? I mean, it’s not humanly possible to do that, right? Right?
