I hate reggae. I hate reggae. Dammit, Makke, I hate reggae, why did you make this kick so HARD?
One of the weirdest remixes ever. I love it.
Really great track!!!
Ahhhh and here I found finaly the raggae vocal :D Production on it can be a bit hmm how to say...? More professional raggae produced? But not bad indeed. :) I like it anyway..
Adorable; superb vocals/song. And I love the reggea approach on this one. Keep 'em coming!

Overall rating

Sometimes a tune is covered so strangely that it becomes a work of art in itself. Makke's Great Giana Rastas is one of them. While obviously based on the Great Giana sisters theme, it's really a song about Giana, with Makke singing the lyrics, and a very persuasive reggae beat. Giving this marks would not be the right thing to do: it's a coherent original track in its own right, which is well worth a download. What I will do is (a) say that I'm not 100% keen on those lyrics, and (b) say that overall I'd give it an 7 for entertainment value. I'm not sure I'd listen to it regularly, but creative jumps like this make for a much more interesting C64 scene, and long may it continue.
