This is my tribute to "Back to the Future Day."  I've been working on this album since January, but I experienced a catastrophic hard drive failure in May without making much in the way of backups.  Needless to say, the drive recovery was expensive, but at that point I really felt it was worth it to complete.  Since that setback, I've been spending every spare hour I could working on this, to the neglect of my friends, family, and mental health. :)

You can download the tracks from my website:
Full album zip: http://ryan8bit.com/...ure_Tribute.zip
Directory with individual songs: http://ryan8bit.com/music/bttf/

I was going to upload to Bandcamp and YouTube, but Universal are kinda strict about their copyrights, so I don't want to screw with that.  Originally, I didn't want to sell it or anything, but after my expensive hard drive crash recovery ($850, ouch), I thought about potentially selling it on Bandcamp to kind of recoup costs.  But the copyright issues are sticky.  If you feel like making a donation for my hard drive recovery (wink wink), you can go to https://www.paypal.me/Ryan8bit .  Don't feel obligated to pay a single dime though.  I'm fine with getting nothing as this is more of a labor of love than anything.  I just want to share the music.

And this is more than just a music album.  While I definitely put a huge effort into the music side of things, I also painstakingly removed what I could of the original movie's music, and put mine inside of it.  So I covered every single song, pop or orchestral, inside the movie and the full thing can be viewed.

Here's a downloadable clip of the Clocktower scene from my site: http://ryan8bit.com/...ower_clip_1.mp4

If you're interested in the whole movie (720p, MPEG-4, medium quality, 970 MB), PM me and I can send you a link to it.

Back to the Future is my favorite movie of all time, and this was the most fitting way I could pay tribute.  It's strange that my last album also celebrated a date as well.  I guess I'm a date number nerd.  See you all in 2029 for my version of Terminator!

Ah, thanks.  I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get all this crap straightened out.  It's fixed now.

Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

There's a lot of tracks because movies will be like, "Let's make a 10 second song for this scene where Marty thinks about breaking and entering, and potentially traumatizing his dad for life."  I tried to condense those that fit.  In all, it's really only about an hour of music.

 

And yeah, I spent way too much time on that cover, but it turned out well.  Actually, damn, I spent way too much time on this overall.

Dude, this is STAGGERINGLY AWESOME. BTTF is one of those movie's I've seen so many times over the years that the soundtrack is practically burned into my brain. Hearing it with a new score like this is going to be amazing. Thank you for your efforts and thank you for sharing it like this!

Can't listen until I get back to Moscow, but: did you consider using Loudr.fm for licensing? They're easy to use and their fares are reasonable. Also they get you to itunes, spotify, etc.
