Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' remixes a lot of classic ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' tunes into slower piano pieces to emphasize the [[WideOpenSandbox massive]] and melancholy AfterTheEnd setting; much like the ruins of Hyrule itself, the songs are so bare and skeletal that it can be somewhat difficult to recognize what they once were. For example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPG2qSY-56E here]] is the Temple of Time theme as it sounded in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7wkCbp_Mtg here]] is how it sounds in ''Breath of the Wild''.

* The Tiny's cover of ''Pet Sematary'' by Music/TheRamones changes it from a silly MonsterMash pop song to a slow, sad song with a haunting violin chorus

* The ''Music/ConfessionExecutiveCommitteeLoveSeries'' song "Right Now I'm in Love -triangle story-" serves as the softer and slower cover to the original "Right Now, I'm in Love". Both songs are about the singer experiencing heartbreak, but the -triangle story- version makes it sadder, considering that the singer is watching his crush fall in love with another boy from afar. Any other ''Love Series'' song doing a PerspectiveFlip doesn't change the tempo at all, making this particular one notable.

Added DiffLines:

* The PlayStation port of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 2'' uses a slower, creepier arrangement of Kazuya's theme for his [[OneWingedAngel Devil form]], unlike the arcade version, where both forms used the same arrangement. Likewise several of the PSX reaarrangements of the stage themes, as well as the mid-boss theme, are more relaxed than their arcade counterparts.
