Darkwing Duck Theme (CGT Remix)
Weekend Remix: A Song That Flaps In The Night
Song: Darkwing Duck Theme (CGT Remix)
Based On: The theme from Darkwing Duck
Original Composers: Steve Nelson And Thom Sharp
With Disney theme songs on the brain, this edition of The Weekend Remix is taking place with everyone’s favorite caped crusader.
Not that one.
Yeah, the one with the gas gun. Darkwing Duck has one of the most memorable theme songs crafted from the doors of the mouse. With it’s mingle between urban new jack swing and dance pop, it’s one of the coolest theme songs created. And while in most regards it’s pretty much untouchable, this week’s remix is still pretty fun.
CrazyGroupTrio put Darkwing’s theme through a speedier electronica filter. But instead of causing images of Darkwing and Launchpad Disco Ducking it in the clubs, this song feels more in synch in old school gaming.
CGT’s remix sounds as if they were hired by Capcom in 1994 to make a fun Darkwing Duck platformer.
Bottom line, somewhere in an alternate universe, a 16-bit Darkwing Duck game exists with CGT’s take on the theme song, completely pushing what the SNES and Genesis could do musically. We’d be stuck on the title screen quite some time before pushing start.
