Story
  • SKYLINE from the motion Soundtrack COBRA by Sylvester Levay


First I thought this is a Martin Galway - SID , then I was told NO it's a Ben Daglish - SID and guess what ? YEP,it is a Ben Daglish -SID conversion from a Sylvester Levay tune! Very well done by Ben Daglish 'cos the original tune is close to the SID conversion. My remix is more like:

  • PINTA,NINJA,SANTA MARIA from the VANGELIS soundtrack Conquest of paradise (track 12)


It was a struggle to get the guitar notes at the end of the track, but it was fun doing the remix and I hope you all like it!

Great Remix!!
Great, but after three minutes something happens with the lead and it sounds horrible.
This is one of the best guitar remixes of any game I've heard..
THIS IS AWESOME! Love it!
Very nice remix... Very vangelis-like, reminds me to some passages of the blade runner ost :)
LMan. It is better than the original. Don't fret. Emanuelle anyone?!
I like the cobra tune, but not this remix. Probably due the choir in the background. And the lead voice is not accurate towards the end. I prefer the Morricone version by Axel Melzener.
Should be better with a bit originality, however good and evocative
Very awsome very climatic and melodic it has the magic and is very smooth and pleasant to listen
I still have that linen sheet from that picture today! Great one, Thomas!
It is not some way that I could imagine Cobra tune before but it works perfectly.
Thomas! Well DONE!
Very nice... Until 3:18...

This could be the main selling song on any Synthesizer greatest-CD of early 90'ies. Jan Hammer, well, he's there somewhere, and boy have you done a great piece of art here, Thomas! Being one of my very favourite SIDs, I'm just drooling here, listening, dreaming and having a very good time! Some spots reveal that it's a sampled guitar, but turning off the nitpicker in me those few seconds, I really love this remix! The drums are calming, soothing, just wonderful!

Totally awesome! Thomas does Vangelis style again. This would fit seamlessly into the Blade Runner soundtrack. The instruments are replicated perfectly, you couldn't tell the tune from a real Vangelis track. The Cobra melody is incorporated properly to fit into that mood. I actually haven't heard Sylvester Levay's original, but there's no way it could be better than this!

Thus top smiley for all categories!
