McVaffe – Vega’s Ballad

I first heard this song almost a decade ago, and I still cannot wrap my brain around how McVaffe was able to transform the Vega Stage music from Street Fighter II from an ultra-Latin piece into a smoothed-out R&B joint; the man is either a genius or on some wonderful drugs. If I’m not mistaken, this was the first tune I heard from Mike, after stumbling onto a little site called OverClocked ReMix back in ’01. I could easily see this on the radio with the right lyrics written (although this style of R&B unfortunately isn’t as prevalent as it was when McV wrote this). The music video that McVaffe made for this song is putting me in the mood to play SFII, so….bye!
