When last you heard from him, Justin Leeper (author of the book Still Man Fights) rapped about the Occupy movement. This time he’s gone in a totally different direction, melding Final Fantasy VI and Pat Benatar. Check out the song above and official description below:
I felt these two songs — “Love is a Battlefield” and “Decisive Battle” — would go well together, so I set out to mix them. I wrote some additional lyrics, got my wife to sing, and made a video using gameplay from one of my favorite games of all-time, Square’s Final Fantasy VI (FF III in the US on SNES).
The music is “Decisive Battle,” from the Final Fantasy VI soundtrack. Both It and the game’s likenesses are owned by Square Enix.
“Love is a Battlefield” was written by Mike Chapman and Holly Knight, and was made famous by Pat Benatar.
My wife Kate did the singing on this video. I did rap and additional lyrics.
As always, Justin is looking for feedback on his work. So please leave a comment here or on his YouTube page.
