Story

You have to know Epic by Faith No More to understand how well interlaced these two tunes are in this remix. Sure, I bent both tunes a bit to arrange this, but I still think both tunes keep most of their integrity none the less. I'm proud it happened and I'm not ashamed.

 

It's SID! (What is SID?) It's SID!

Lyrics:

Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
Well if you can't you've got to be def in some way
And you will never understand why the arpeggios so fast
And it feels like your ears are made of glass

It's so cool, it's so hip, it's so right
It's so groovie it's our of sight
You can' touch it, nor smell it, but it still is so sweet
And the sound of the SID makes you move your feet

You wanted SID and you're gonna get it

It's blippin', bloppin', that's what it's for
So you flip the disk and then you listen some more
You've got to sing it, got to say it
Then you bing it, and then you play it

You wanted SID and you're gonna get it (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's in your ears and you can hear it (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

It's a live, afraid, a lie, a sin
It's magic, not tragic, and it plays when you win
It's dry, not moist, it's a parents pain
I'm glad it happend and I'm note ashamed

It's SID (What is SID?)
It's SID (What is SID?)
It's the SID (What is SID?)
It's SID (What is SID?)
etc.

It's SID. What is SID? :) Makke gooooood.
Well done... Mixing epic with arkanoid, great idea, great remix!!!
Not my thang.. But still a competent and decent remix.. Wtg makke
Nice idea and a little mad, well done Makke.
Arkanoid-tune could be louder...
Makke, you are a nutter! I love the vocals on this one!
Hahaha!! Really great 'remix' with fresh new ideas in its style!! Not just a 'remake'! It's definitely more behind it! Great makke!!:-)
Maybe Beastie Boys are hiring? Very entertaining :)
Great vocals!
Is there an instrumental Verion around?
Great remix, highly original.
This... Arkianoid? No. SOrry.
Makke no more! No, seriously, the idea is good, but there's too little left of Arkanoid in this for my taste.
Great vocal track; nice balance in the mix and indead this feels like Beasty Boys to me too.
Yes right, I like it.. Arkanoid and Faith no more, too :)
Lol, it's Epic :)
Cool idea to use Epic from Faith no more as the base for the lyrics.
After many years, Still a classic. It's SID!

Arkanoid - as techno-rap??? With some alternative rock mixed in??? I am scratching my head here, but one some level it seems to work okay. In a club setting this might set the place on fire, though, because it has really great rhythm. I doubt there's a single tune (C64 remix or not) out there that boasts more styles than this one... It's probably this eclectic mix of styles that distances me from it.

Great mix, great sounds, great vocals and with a Pattonisation of a sid you couldn't possibly go wrong!

I really like this mix, it's fun, unpretentious and damn funky, how about Spy vs. Spy in the style of Midlife Crisis? ;)

You've got you hand it to Makke - when it comes to crazy vocals he's hard to beat. This parady of 'The Real Thing' by 'Faith no more' couldn't have been easy to fit around the arkanoid sid, just damn it he's just about pulled it off. Great singing by the way - a funny and lyrically clever mix from the goooood man himself.
