Mahoney - Boulder Dash (Commodore 69 Mix)

Surprise! Laughing

This is not what you think it is. I wont spoil it by telling you, but if you've heard the mix, you know. I hope you'll get a good laugh.

This is a work of fiction. All resemblence with now living creatures on this planet is unfortunately purely coincidential. Sob!

...

Do you have any idea how the Mahoney one was done? It sounds like a voice synthesizer that was programmed with a combination of text and midi. I'm so ignorant of music synthsis technology these days -- it was a big interest in my younger days, and I sometimes think of taking it up again, but I hardly know where to start.

Well, Peter (the author of the ORIGINAL Boulderdash sid!):

You're right on the spot! I use a program called "Virtual singer v1.3", together with it's host program "Melody Assistant". Not a very good (=natural) voice synthesis, but for these kinds of effects it worked!

Some have guessed it was some kind of vocoder, and well, it could have been, but it would be too much of a hassle of getting the rythm correct. Instead, it was a quick test of the program, the mix took in all about 5 hours to make.

The lyrics are (WARNING: SPOILER!):

I remember all the joy

I had with just a single toy

la la la

/it was so lovely/

it was a

co mo mo mo mo do re 64

/It was just fantastic/



I remember partying

and playing 'round

with everything

la la la

/it was so lovely/

on my

co mo mo mo mo do re 64

/It was just fantastic/



Lisa was a friend of mine

and she was looking oh so fine

la la la

/she was so lovely/

we played

co mo mo mo mo do re 64

and then I kissed her

it was just fantastic



She said I was oh so right

she said she could spend the night

la la la

her body was so lovely

she was so lovely

we did the

co mo mo mo mo do re 69

/It was just fantastic/





... and at the end, from a traditional swedish cartoon shown every christmas, a man yelling some words like "You may end up in mental hospital cause of that". Sorry for the swedish, but I am swedish. And I didn't find any more suitable ending than this in english... Scandinavians laugh, so please laugh with us! (Or maybe at us!)



Have a noise night! / Pex "Mahoney" Tufvesson
