@nivi: I would work out a way to embed it or put it on Youtube as I don't think ill be the only person who doesn't want to click that link.  Then I can know its awesomeness!!

@nivi:
Good job dude. Sounds awesome. Love all the chopped up voice samples.  
 
 
@Mrskidders: It's a direct link to an MP3 file, what's the big deal?

@WEGGLES: Last time I clicked a direct link it was a sound file of a woman screaming and speaking in tongues.  The next day I woke up and I had shrunk a whole foot in height.

Jesus Christ this is REALLY good.  Guys like you are the reason the GiantBomb community is as amazing as it is.
#10 Posted by ESREVER (2682 posts) -

That was wonderful. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed at the end with some saying of Francis York Morgan. 
 
Wonderful work!

Glad you guys like it :3. More of my stuff is available here.

Started out slow, wasn't expecting much, but the middle blew me away. Get this shit up on OCR.

#13 Posted by markini6 (445 posts) -

I don't even know th game or the song but well fucking done!

@nivi: Oh and welcome to the forums of Giant Bomb!!
#15 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10894 posts) -

I don't like it. Too many changes! Rarr, [insert angry old man who doesn't like change comment here!] 
 
I guess it's okay, depending on one's taste in music. I like this cover better:

Man, the opening is a complete mis-direct on what kind of cover that is. Nice job.

#17 Posted by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

Common fruity loops sounds makes it sound like a keatonkeaton999 fun times mix. Or an OC remix.

#18 Posted by Beforet (2916 posts) -

That was unexpected. Well done.

#19 Posted by HatKing (5883 posts) -

Hahah.... I like it.
#20 Posted by supermike6 (3557 posts) -

Brilliant! Makes me want to watch the ER again!  
 
Must resist...

#21 Posted by Brackynews (4060 posts) -
@keyhunter:  *cough*  And when was the last time you heard an OCRemix to trash them so?
#22 Posted by SeriouslyNow (8534 posts) -
@nivi:   Really awesome job.  Love the granularized samples.  Is that Ableton Live I detect?
#23 Posted by weegieanawrench (1937 posts) -

Nice job duder! I was caught off-guard by the awesomeness after the piano intro.

#24 Posted by Chuggsy (554 posts) -

I love it! Great work man.

#25 Posted by nivi (121 posts) -
@SeriouslyNow: Naw, I just sliced the vocals up to half-syllable chunks and sequenced them like that.

What the hell wrong with you?
 
Oh that's a wonderful cover version. I like the little voice bits. It's more than a deliciously tasty crunch indeed.
#29 Posted by weegieanawrench (1937 posts) -
@Chuggsy: Ah, it didn't mean to say that the intro was bad. I meant that when it suddenly changed from piano to the 8-bit stuff, I didn't expect it. I though that song would have gone in a totally different direction is all.
#30 Posted by jos4 (97 posts) -

Wow, this is the best cover I've listened so far!! The sound bits are hilarious! 
Can you upload it to Youtube, please? I want to to post it in other gaming boards!

#31 Posted by nivi (121 posts) -
@jos4: It's Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial, so while I don't get why you wouldn't just link to the mp3, you would be perfectly within your rights to upload it yourself, provided you link to my site on youtube and any other sites you post it on.

Ah, ok then, I didn't know that! Well I could upload it to Youtube including some video remix involving Michael Tillotson and all, but I'm quite busy to do such thing. 
Anyways, I'll just post the link to the mp3 file, thank you very much!
#33 Posted by Tordah (2478 posts) -

That was totally not what I was expected, but it was surprisingly good.

 @nivi:
Awesome cover, or, remix man. What'd you use? Fruity Loops? I need to take the time to learn it.  
 
I'm trying to figure out how you did the voice-work. Cut it into syllable chunks, right, but then what? Put each in it's own pattern? Idk. Great job though.

No with that you can just record your vocals over a metronome with something like Audacity then add the music file you got from FL to the project in audacity or whatever and save it from there.

This is fantastic, awesome work dude. My avatar approves.

Thanks, but what about stuff like voice clips of characters. just cut them up and place them in patterns in FL?

Oh... yeah.  With that kinda stuff, yes.  I mean... you can go to his site and ask him there.  But that's how I would do it.  I'm sure he did it the same way. 
 
Here's his site.

I could so see the guy with the piano on the ground floor of a Macy's somewhere doing this.

Same here - want to play through the game before watching the ER as it's proven so terribly divisive and I don't want my opinions shaped too much beforehand.  Never experienced the song in it's original setting but still loved this remix.
