Song Information

PC-XMOnward Ride (Original) Have video

Song Length: 8:25
Release Year: 1995

Song Source: Demo
Song Platform: PlatformPC-XM

Additional Information:

Also known as dope.mod (957334B)

This is the longer, but smaller "DOPE.MOD" version (957334B). It has the somewhat more funky breakdown (approx 5 minutes in) with keyboard and drum breaks. It also has a short key modulation (approx 8 minutes in). It's supposed to fade out quickly at some point (perhaps shortly after the modulation returns to original key), but that is demo controlled -- and that's why it's hard to say how long this version should play (without timing the demo playing on the hardware it was developed on).

As legend has it, the other shorter (but bigger) "party" version (Onward Ride (original party version)) was "remixed" and shortened in the last minutes to make it sync up with the demo running on faster machines... but it could have been the other way around. This DOPE.MOD version could actually be the remix with the kick-ass keyboard lead! Maybe the music played fast! GET JUGI ON THE PHONE!

Even worse, I found a third version that sounds just like the shorter version, except it uses the FT2 format. Maybe that was the remix source for the "party" version, which was converted to FT1 format for demo compatibility? :D All speculation.

Superb buildup, and nice melodies all the way.
