AlexSmith - This was a really fun entry. It's a nice unique take on the theme while keeping it pretty recognizable, and it's so dang catchy. I was listening to it all week. XD I love the way you end the section from 1:43-1:55; it's such a simple change, but it makes all the difference. My only complaint is that overall it sounds kind of muffled/muddy. The production was what pushed you to second for me.
OneUp - Just felt a little emptier than the above. It's still got that cool, bouncy tropical feel, but it's just not quite as successful. Production is good.
V___ - lol.
Chickenwarlord - I couldn't recognize the source. D: But kudos for doing something different, eh? The second half in particular was cool. Then the mouth stuff made me laugh.

2. OneUp - Cheesy stuff but still groovy. Instrument variation wouldv been nicer.
3. AlexSmith - I really wish the processing was better on this, was a good song...

Skanking in the Tropics is also a very good interpretation of the song.
I dont have much reason for choosing #3 other than I think it's better than the other entry

V__: If only I had your courage. My vocals for the time being will be restrained to lame vocal percussion. Ballsiness gets you 2nd place.
Setokaibarocket: The wide tuning on those synths was good for the mood you set up. I would suggest a little more prominence to the part in the very back of the mix: especially bringing it out during those parts where you loop the same thing three times.
Oneup: Once again I feel as if your piece, despite some very interesting drumwork, is emptier than it should be. I don't know if this is a matter of filling out the lower frequencies or what (hypocrisy!).

AlexSmith: The idea is great! The samples and mastering could be improved though, it's kind of messy and gets drowned by the guitars. The part that starts around 0:34 is really cool, and earns you my second place vote.
setokaibarocket: Dude, breakdowns and transitions plz! It just keep going nonstop, and gets too repetitive. Otherwise I like the tune. The samples and mastering are ok, but a little too rough. Shame I didn't thought of that whistle in my remix. It gives the remix that little extra, that gives you my third place vote.
Chickenwarlord: As usual quite strange remix... Shame that it sounds like you just use the original presets of your synths. The percussionsare in the wrong places, and the whole arrangement sounds too rushed and random. I know I tend too use standard boring arrangements, but it gives it a flow that I think lacks in your remixes.
First place goes out to da funky mothafudging V___! Love the beat, really funky, makes me head nod. The bass is a little too loud. The wack raggamuffines is awesome, shame that the sound quality on the vocals are so bad. The intro synth sounds a lot like an intro from the swedish metal artist called Pain. Nothing special otherwise with the instruments or composition, but overall it's catchy and sweet!

OneUp - I like the intro bass. But it takes long before the song starts. But when it starts, I like the song. The main lead starts dominating the song very slow. As you said, it's repetitive, it's all the same. I like the samples you used.
Setokaibarocket - Good intro, the drums are very good but they don't variate. Some samples are a bit weird, it doesn't feel good. The vocal fits well. There isn't much variation, but I like the parts and the ending.
Chickenwarlord - It really is slow and simple, good you mentioned it, maybe I'll listen to it again when I wants to sleep. The samples are combined very good, they are a good set for this. I don't like the 'noisy' at the end.
V____ - I don't like the horrible 'thing' in the begin, but at 0:30 the song starts. I don't like the vocals, but the background sample is nice. There's not much in this song.
Hylian Lemon - I like the beginning of this Bonus Song. The samples you used fits very well in this, but there's not much variation in them. The strings are good as well. The ending is typical for this.
