FCP4 entries: Pressure, Morphine (VRC6)

"Pressure" (2A03+VRC6; 3:40)
Source: "Pressure" by Billy Joel

"'All Your Base' on Time magazine / I read it too, what does it mean?"

The song, from Billy Joel's 1982 album The Nylon Curtain, is about the pressure of being the breadwinner for one's family. But the music video is about the pressure of hooking up cable TV and frantically flipping through the channels, but all you find are a bunch of Poltergeist knockoffs.

"Morphine" (2A03+VRC6; 5:20)
Source: "Morphine" by Michael Jackson

"Morphine makes the holy known, Uncle Linna."

Cover of an industrial metal piece from Michael Jackson's lesser-known sixth album with Epic, Blood on the Dance Floor: History in the Mix. In this song, Jackson channels Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.

The hardest thing about posting "Pressure" and "Morphine" here was the labor of making 2A03 copies of VRC6 instruments and VRC6 copies of 2A03 instruments so that the FTM plays in FamiTracker 0.4.6, the final official release. I made them in 0CC-FamiTracker, which allows sharing instruments between 2A03 and VRC6. Playback translates the duty of instruments on one chip to the corresponding duty on the other.
