Re: Does the Kai soundtrack make a big difference to you?

I think we knew that some of his music was similar, but no one realized that it was almost EXACTLY the same until he was put in charge of Kai's soundtrack. VegettoEX and Meri were aware of it years before Kai began. There's an old episode of the Kanzenshuu (then DaizenshuuEX) podcast from August 20...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

Awesome!! Thanks to this i found the name of M118. Si Xing Qu Chase That's not the official name, just so you know. Most DragonBall/DBZ cues are only officially known by their M-numbers, so I came up with a bunch of unofficial names to make them easier to remember. The closest thing it has to a nam...

Double-posting because of the new business surrounding editing posts, but last night I decided to finally go ahead and update my site with the title card corrections/info.

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

So while making a collection of various short bits of DB music like eyecatches and title cards, I noticed that the DB title card cue listed on the site is incorrect. d2:14(a) actually seems to be a variant on the eyecatch music with a long gong sound at the end, which I'm not sure is actually used ...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

Looking back at the unreleased cue from Curse of the Blood Rubies, I'm positive that the tracks "Departing The Island" and "Kame Sennin Speaks Of Friends" are actually both together one cue. Well, I don't know. There's a good number of spots in the DragonBall movies where the cues bleed into each o...

^Not only that, but given that some released tracks were never played in full, it's also quite possible some unreleased tracks were never played in full. Oh, of that I'm positive. On another note, are you going to do the Sumitomo stuff? It's definitely on my radar. And I'm not just saying this beca...

Re: Why is kikuchi bgm called MXXX M2XXXX?

I don't know who invented the practice of labeling music with M-numbers, but I'm sure I'd have to go way far back, probably to the beginnings of talkie/audio cinema. Maybe even earlier. It's not just a Japanese thing, though numbering conventions vary depending on the production. Film music cues - a...

Could it be that "Why Watch The Bay On Baywatch?" is stock music? It doesn't sound like something Kikuchi could have composed, does it? It's definitely my hypothesis that it's stock music. Something I want to bring up about the last unreleased cue from Mystical Adventure, "Metallic Tries To Kill Up...

Re: Why is kikuchi bgm called MXXX M2XXXX?

Well, first off, the M-numbers are basically the production codes for each music cue. The number directly after the M indicates which recording session it came from. The movie music is numbered, for the most part, by the order in which each cue appears in the film, so most of the time it's easy enou...

Re: Episode #0392 (06 December 2015)

And to steal a bit from Chris Psaros' DBZ Uncensored : The moment Gohan gets his neck broken by Rikuum's kick is SO much more dramatic in the Japanese version, and once again, it's all because of the sound direction, or in this case, the lack thereof. What happens is that Gohan comes in to strike, ...

Re: Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku [Hero's Legacy] ID

It's never been released (along with the rest of the made-for-TV GT score), but occasionally a low-quality isolation crops up. The cue you're looking for is this one, and for future reference, I have a site for identifying music cues from DragonBall.

Re: Why didn't Akihito Tokunaga come back for Kai?

I feel like I'm one of the only people on this forum who really does not enjoy Akihito Tokunaga's work in DragonBall? Saikyo e no Michi included? I just feel like it's corny, tinny, and boring... I legitimately wonder where all the love for his work comes from. To be honest, I've always had a certa...

Re: Episode #0392 (06 December 2015)

I can totally agree with Kirbopher about the Sumitomo cue that was used for Pure Boo's final moments. I haven't watched Final Chapters anywhere past what I've documented, so at first I didn't know what piece that would have been, but I immediately recognized it when the sample started up. It was fir...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

Here's another reason I should type up my expanded/revised notes for the movies soon. Had they already been up, it might have saved quite a bit of confusion (assuming my guesses are right). Kenisu3000, was "Octagons Aplenty" intended for DB Movie 3? It does have the shorter-length, common of movie c...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

To Ree and raulvalente, I'm afraid I haven't documented anything from Super. Plus, if the cues you're looking for are indeed original music from Super, getting the cue names probably won't do you any good as I haven't heard of any BGM releases for the new series yet.

Re: Help to identify a DragonBall BGM

The cue in question is a piece of stock music called "Boogaloo", by Sammy Burdson and Jean-Claude Madonne.

The instrumental (which is what you hear in DragonBall) is here
And here it is with lyrics

And I thiiiink I'd better update my site with that info.

Next, One of my personal favorite Dragon Ball tracks of all time: M201 Took the words right out of my mouth. I adore this cue, and everything about the scene it was composed for. The way the music starts up before the Toei logo even appears, the slow, ominous buildup over the mist and parting cloud...

Re: Ree vs. DBZ Uncensored

It's easy to see the point I'm trying to make when one compares certain scenes of the Japanese version with the corresponding English ones. I have found that the new music shows it's true powerlessness most evidently during scenes of great emotion, such as the death sequences. I will never forget w...
