This could very well be an OCRemix song, but it's not. It's the real deal.
While the Final Fantasy ain't exactly my cup of tea, I have always loved and respected the music from each of its soundtracks (even VIII and X...). One of my favorite tracks from the series are the "de Chocobo" songs. Really fun and cute songs to hear while riding a giant lovable chicken. But then comes FF13-2 and messes up with the whole concept of Chocobo songs.
Crazy Chocobo isn't totally bad. It doesn't sound horrible, at least as the instrumentals go. But it totally takes away what makes the Chocobo song fun. The "de Chocobo" songs are simple, cute and pretty catchy, this is just a generic metal song with the "de Chocobo" tune thrown in. I would've accepted the track, since like I said, it isn't that bad, but then come the lyrics...
The vocals totally kill whatever positive feeling I had for it and burns it to the ground.
"GAS 'EM UP WITH THE GREENS AND LET 'EM GO STAND BACK, STAND CLEAR AS HE PUTS ON A SHOW. SO CUTE, YET FIERCE, IS HE FROM HELL? I CANNOT TELL, YET I DON'T EVEN WANT TO KNOW"
I have heard the song several times, and I have pretty much decided that this is parody of itself. There's no other explanation as to why Square-Enix made this.
"SO DO YOU THINK YOU CAN RIDE THIS CHOCOBO?"
No Square-Enix, I don't think I can ride this chocobo... Granted, the song feels so over the top bad, it's funny, but not something I would be proud of.
