GROOVY! A new EWJ cover after... 4 years? Wow!
Maybe one of my favorite themes from the 16-bit era. Not only was it simple, it was vocal! You'd think that'd make things as easy as ripping the vocal samples, but the NES has only one channel for digitized audio. Then again, so did the Genesis, so I took a cue from that and used tones to replace the vocals I'd loose.
Another small issue is the fact the NES could only play samples at fixed arbitrary rates, not flexible enough for certain pitches, so I had to resample them myself and have multiple versions of the same samples at different pitches. This means more memory is used up however, and would've probably driven up the cost of using such a trick on a real NES back in the day.
Despite these limitations, I hope this track is still quite enjoyable.
