Rambo (feat. Hanna Kappelin and Larsec)
Rambo. I still don't believe how unreal the movies were, all of them. But still, the Commodore 64 game rocks! It's always fun to blow the roofs of buildings, you know!

With Larsec doing the synths and Hanna Kappelin doing the vocals, this remix tries to capture the mood of the brilliant loading music of the game by Martin Galway. (God, if you didn't know it ;)

If you like this, there's more to find on the CD "READY. Vocally too" by Visa Röster. 18 Commodore 64 tracks, remixed with the lovely voices of Swedish a cappella group Visa Röster. Read more about it at Visa Röster's homepage at http://www.livet.se/visa.

Visa Röster are: Hanna Kappelin, Karin Öjehagen, Elsa Persson, Sofia Åberg, Johannes Lindén and Pex 'Mahoney' Tufvesson.

We hope you'll like this song. We had loads of fun making it. Enjoy! / Visa Röster

REVIEW BY LMan (29/03/2006)

Top notch vocals as usual by Visa Röster, and Larsec's style is distinctive in the arrangement. Technically, this piece is flawless.

On the other hand, I would really really appreciate if there were some lyrics for the melodies, and I would not mind if it was in english, or in swedish or any other language I don't understand; the point is, lyrics would add a lot of personality and texture to the singing.

Without doubt Visa Röster have the finest vocalists in the whole scene, it's a shame all we get to hear from them is "Ooooohs" and "Aaaahs", if you know what I mean. :-)
Technical Impression: 6
Artistic Impression: 5
Nostalgic Impression: 5
Overall: 6

6 Chris Abbott shouts: Can't fault it, except it should be a song, as LMan says. /me gets lyric writing
6 Makke shouts: Hanna for president! I love this track, though LMan has a point in what he say about lyrics. Though writing lyrics to fit the Rambo lead might be hard.
6 Waz shouts: There's something so wholesome about Hanna's vocals for the lead which just makes the whole thing work, where in lesser hands it might not work so well. Epic and excellent all round.
6 Dan shouts: Just epic in every sense of the word, it works SO perfectly
6 jaytee shouts: Lovely stuff.
6 browser_brody shouts: Wonderful!
6 moog shouts: I must admit --- this one really ROCKZ!!!!
6 floaf shouts: This is my alltime favourite. Soooooooooo sweet!!! And the end is wonderful!
6 prowler shouts: Really nice lyrics, but I must agree with lman that the "ooohs" and "aaaahs" to tend to fill up too much of the song.
6 romeo_knight shouts: You Rösters are some bad muthas!
6 Skitz shouts: This is what happens when a remixer and an amazing vocalist meet. A match made in heaven but keep your hands off Hanna :)
6 gibs shouts: VGJ (Very Good Job) :-) :-) :-) :-)
3 grytulf shouts: Ok, but nothing special... A bit to slow and empty... Wont really remember it after 5 min
6 chilli_uk shouts: Lman - I think many of us would like to hear more oohs and arghs of Miss Kappelin - the work IS amazing, but Yes if only someone could put true vocals to it - but still my FAV remix at the moment. Well DONE!!
6 delta89 shouts: Blinkin excellent!!
6 Danceaway shouts: GORGOUS vocals and a nice remix of a great sid track!!!
5 weasel shouts: Very cool mixing and style! Feels fresh and full of power! Really cool effort on a classic SID again! Great voice (as always!!! ) and carries the real spirit in it overall! Simply GREAT! :-D
6 aero shouts: Close to perfection
4 plastikbag shouts: No doubt there's some great vocal talent here, but I found the song itself boring.
6 sloth shouts: This remix made me register, just so I could cast my vote. When I played this game back in the 80's, I never would've dreamed that I one day would regard this tune as sensual. Kinda disturbing in a way :o)
4 infamous shouts: Cannot fault the vocal talents of the ladies involved or the arrangement talents of those behind the scenes and its a winning formula but this isnt my cup of tea and I too would love to hear more done with them voices. Ill probably be outcasted now heh
5 feark shouts: Excellent. Agree it will just disappear from the mind after it end, but! Good music shouldnt be remember, or els it will get stuck in the head and you will going nuts after awhile. Good tunes is like a dream, a good dream ofcourse... Yeah
5 eliot shouts: Big minus for 128kbps (should be 256 at least), the intensity/punch I expected is missing, but still a very good tune...
6 horizoner shouts: Wow just listened on my brandnew highend stereo-machine /OUTSTANDING/
6 LaLa shouts: Phantastic vocals, oozing of emotions. A bit unusual from Vista Röster to have a non-vocal backing, but the arrangement works very well. Very, very good. Can anybody make out the Morse code at the very end?
6 baztd shouts: What a voice Hanna has. I could listen to this all day.
4 spellcoder shouts: Much too long for my taste and a tad bit slow, but still very good.
6 redi72 shouts: Very, very beautiful.
6 daborg shouts: Oh my God... Utter musical beauty = Goosebumps++
6 zartan_2001 shouts: Beautiful remix of my all time favorite song
6 Mayhem shouts: Just lovely, like they all are! Actually it's grown on me the more I've listened to it.
6 omoroca shouts: OUTSTANDING!!! This song and "Thrust" (also feat. Hanna) are some of the greatest in here!
6 humorguy shouts: I see wings..... Wings..... Behind her back.... Can't you see? ! CAN'T you see? !! Oh my God! The light..... THE LIGHT!!!!!!
6 mert shouts: Rambo has been Great Gigged in the Sky! Sweet. Marvelous work!
5 chabee shouts: Very, very nice and beautyfull vocal! Well done!
6 radulescu shouts: Perfect, I just utterly love these collaborations between VR and "guests", and I love these wordless vocals (reminding me of the performances by edda dell'orso on these dozens of fine 60s/70s Ennio Morricone soundtracks), no lyrics needed here!
6 Ziphoid shouts: I REALLY, really love this... Driving up on the dark roads from the CRC in Copenhagen with this cranked up to the maximum in the car made the trip a pure joy. Excellently done! ... And Hannas voice... OMG!;)
6 Seider shouts: Extremely Amazing and Outstanding. I never thought Remixes of C64 games could reach this level of quality.
6 oddball shouts: Drool... Wow! Lyrics.. Yah well would be nice but it is outstanding as it is!
6 Ultra Maximum Prime shouts: Omigosh, could this be my favourite mix right now? ! One of the all time most excellent SIDs flawlessly arranged in an incredibly powerful peice. It doesn't need lyrics, no way. That voice is all the feeling and personality we need. Beautiful & moving
2 Cubud shouts: This is Rambo? I heard a slow dull song, with vocals (not enough alone to impress me). I didn't even realise it was Rambo. Rambo is supposed to be full of life. Well produced, but simply NOT Rambo in the slightest!
6 Nebdar shouts: Very moody one, very pretty and full of emotion voice here, I love those kind of remixes. Outstanding job
6 _steve_ shouts: Lovely haunting vocal over a well produced (slower) Rambo theme. Lala, I believe the morse is "AMIGA" (.- --..--..-)
2 NostalGuy shouts: I must have missed something. Where's the Rambo melody?
6 ElektroSeed shouts: More power to a song like this is not possible
6 Melaure shouts: No rambo, but beautiful voice ;)
6 Jojje70 shouts: Very atmospheric with great vocals that makes it even better!
