We're coming for you, Andross! ...Right after I pull myself away from Nier Automata.
Man, it's been too long. Two or three weeks, I think? Anyway, I noticed on Thursday that the 14th anniversary of Star Fox for the Super Nintendo in North America is on Sunday, so in the spur of the moment I decided to whip up a track from that game. This track, along with Corneria and Venom, is probably my favorite from this game, and it's a damn shame it took until Star Fox Zero (Smash Bros. notwithstanding) for elements of Hajime Hirasawa's soundtrack to make a return.
The other reason I decided to cover this track in particular was because I didn't see a proper cover of this song on YouTube, Venom was already taken (coatlesscarl did a Famitracker cover of SSBM's Corneria), and I'd already done Corneria back in April of last year.
For this, I wanted to try and combine the best of both the original song and its orchestrated version from the Orchestral Game Concert series back in the 1990's, which differed in quite a few ways. Hopefully it turned out okay!
