SONG INDEX HERE

Okay, so it's not as cool as the opposite thread, but I'm bored. I've got Tweakbench's Peach and Toad as well as the rest of FL Studio at my disposal, and I'm a sorta-crappy musician.

HOWEVER! I think it would be cool to start an opposite thread. Therefore, give me songs that I can get sheet music or MIDI (MIDI is easier) for, and I will make you an NES version of the same song.

If anyone else would like to help out if this goes out of hand, feel free.

...are necessary for NES. The simpler songs will work better because the NES isn't exactly the most powerful platform on the earth. (I'll at least be nice and allow some polyphony.)

I'll do Stairway to Heaven and Purple Haze for now. If they go over well, I'll do more. Give me until tomorrow afternoon; I'm going to get some sleep now and hit FL Studio in the morning.

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

A little backstory
Apr 24, 2004

Let's call her Elizabeth, because that's her name.

https://www.8bitpeoples.com is a pretty site.


Officially requesting anything by Radiohead or the Pixies though, because I am so very gay for both of these fine groups.


Radiohead - Paranoid Android

Radiohead - Karma Police (lots of polyphonic stuff going on in this one, but I mean come on, have you heard the intro to MegaMan 3?)

The Smiths - How Soon is Now


Bless you if you can make a Pixies song though, 'cause I couldn't find any MIDIs.

I don't know how different standard MIDI beeps are from NES beeps, but maybe you could make this MIDI of Operation Ivy's "Bombshell" cooler!

Those were electronic remixes of NES songs. Don't expect these to sound like those.

EDIT: These'll sound a lot like that first little breakdown in the Zero Wing sample.

Quick and dirty and breaks all kinds of NES music rules, but I'm too lazy to actually edit the MIDI tracks.

Uhm, I've kinda remixed that song a few times in the past. Don't ask why. These have nothing to do with the topic, but hey, final countdown.

you know you can import MIDI files to FL and just swap out the local MIDI instruments to VST instruments, right?
