I hope to keep improving so don't be surprised if I do weird experiments with textures and colors and stuff like that in Photoshop.
You have no idea what this means to me, to finally hear these songs from this obscure film in crisp, beautiful HD with no talking or sound effects cutting the songs off. This dumb little movie with its terrible, outsourced animation that earned itself an episode on the Nostalgic Critic and a place on several "worst animated films of all time" lists was such a huge influence on me as a kid.
I mean, hell, just look at this character I draw from the movie occasionally. I'm pretty sure he's my spirit animal just from how many personality traits and style quirks from him ended up in my characters.
I should probably draw this guy again...
And with this movie being so beloved and watched in my household (hell, I'll be the first to admit that I watch this damn movie at least once a year because the kingdom of Oriana is an amazing, inventive place littered with animation errors), one of the biggest teases of my entire life was that there was absolutely no way to hear the Princess's bubble dance song in its entirety. I would try to mime the bubble dance as a little kid with the VHS playing the scene, but I'd always have to end up stopping my dance short because Grumper and the Duke of Zill had to have a tender moment.
Some quick notes on the two songs I downloaded, Face to the Wind and Who is the Boss?
*Face to the Wind does not include the saxophone solo by Felix the Cat.
*That being said, the "escape" song is heard in the track and by golly will it melt your eardrums with sheer 80's-style beauty.
*While Face to the Wind obviously benefits from having all the background noise taken out, oddly enough, Who is the Boss? sounds kind of barren without the monsters, the Duke of Zill's opening speech, or the monsters splashing in time to the music.
*That being said, hearing the HD 80's drums and guitar in the song more than makes up for the parts of the song that sound a little empty. I'm just going to be a dork and include both a soundtrack version of the song and a movie version of the song on my iPod.
But by all means, download those two songs. Download ALL of the songs. Celebrate in this wondrous, magical thing that is Felix the Cat: The Movie of all things getting new material after all these years.
