Weekend Remix-Sadness No Jutsu!
Song: Beats And Sorrows
Based On: Sadness And Sorrow from Naruto
Original Composer: Toshio Masuda
This week we’re getting out the Kunais and Hand Signs in order for the Weekend Remix. I’m not going to hide the fact that I’m a bit of a fan of everyone’s favorite orange ninja. Although, these days when it comes to the series, I keep up with the manga moreso than the anime. But my trip with Naruto started during my time in school, when a friend of mine turned me on to the series. We’d watch five or six episodes in between two-hour bouts of Soul Caliber II. Not a bad freshman year.
Now usually when it comes to the music of Naruto, I personally prefer the catchy J-Rock/J-Pop stylings of the openings and endings. However, the track ‘Sadness and Sorrow’ always stood out to me simply because it’s a beautiful piece that successfully conveys “Naruto is having a serious moment now.” It’s a proper break in the comedy or action.
Zoned’s subtle beat remix manages to add in a calm groove, without sacrificing the song’s somber nature. Its intention of providing an audio shift in mood from fun to sad is never lost. In fact, thanks to its building keys, it’s just as reflective as ever.
It doesn’t completely warp the original song simply because it doesn’t need to do so. But Zoned still manages to add in enough to truly elevate this song into such an enjoyable piece.
