As you all should know, I love music.  I have a special liking to videogame music.  Here is something that I have been listening to for quite a while now, and it doesn’t seem to be too common.  There are some music videos from WWW.YouTube.com that I would like ya’ll to check out at the end of this blog. 







It’s called Video Games Live by The Slovak National Symphony Orchestra.  I would absolutely love to go to one of these concerts, and you’ll see why in a moment.  Volume one of the Video Games Live CD is out, and can be purchased.  As you can see I have put a picture of what the album looks like.  Pretty nice cover isn't it?  I will also give ya’ll a track listing of the first disc.  And without further ado, here is the track listing with the videos.

1.       Kingdom Hearts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iGuOSfjfJI

2.       Warcraft Suite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAOMSG_RvrQ

3.       Myst Melody http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qweHacwcIyI

4.       Medal of Honor (Live) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6DGJo4PIxo

5.       Civilization 4 Melody http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ichj_91I3Ck

6.       Tetris Melody http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJzzIJ8xAOQ

8.       Advent Rising Suite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJ4teIWkpbs

9.       Tron Montage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7W4BgMEpUQ

10.   Halo Suite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O6dCAJoerc (incredible!)

11.   Castlevania http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZynoIamCGfs

Here are some other songs that I would love to see in future CDs, and will most likely come true.

1.       Super Mario Bros. Medly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEoSM-U3aNU

2.       Sonic the Hedgehog (mixed themes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92Je8Faq3HQ (Absolutely amazing, and it’s Sonic weirdly!)

3.       The Legend of Zelda medly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJMdFHE90iI (Zelda is always amazing!)

Here is a special reply to a PM I got! Here is Metal Gear from the same orchestra! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_6LG8dyE0U

Everyone enjoy the music!  I know I have, and I got it on my 120GB Zune!  Also, here is their companion website, so you can see if they are coming to a town near you! WWW.videogameslive.com See you all later, and don’t forget to read my 2 other previous blogs.  The main one that I want ya'll to mainly read is the "More about me, then I'll talk more about games after I'm done" blog.  I'll see you all later!

Damn, the Medal Of Honor and God Of War ones brought me way back to the early and late PS2 days respectively. Nice find!

God Of War is really the only game of those two that I enjoyed. The MoH song gave me goosebumps because it made me recall years and years ago when the game was considered awesome.

I like the Halo Suite, Super Mario Bros. Medly, Sonic the Hedgehog themes, Zelda, and Civilization 4 theme the most out of all of them.  I like these themes just like you like the themes you saw stand out.  I grew up with Mario and Sonic.  I started liking Zelda later.  Hearing them played in an orchestra gave me goosebumps!!  Since I liked this type of music so much, I decided to share it with everyone I know, and I posted this blog.  I just couldn't wait to do so!

A friend of mine told me about Braid, and showed me a video on it.  The music and atmosphere was pretty good!

Awesome, I got tickets for Video Games Live in Calgary for Christmas, put on by our philharmonic orchestra. It's in May... can't wait.

Cheers for the links. Also @ pirate_republic: Dude that would be awesome to see, I am jealous man.

#15 Posted by Tireyo (6426 posts) -

Private_republic:  You are so lucky, enjoy yourself!
Insanegame and ci337usr: You are both welcome.

I have a nice collection of OST's, if I hear something I like I and I love the game, I will usually try to obtain the soundtrack too.

I've been to both of the Video Games Live events held in London so far. I have really enjoyed them both, even my GF who's not into videogames as much as I am. The last at the Royal Festival Hall was awesome, the acoustics in the new renovated auditorium were amazing, and the show Tommy Talerico put on was class.

I'm looking forward to this album next, it's so untypical to hear videogame music in a Hip hop form, and with these high production values. I am getting a free copy with my pre order :)

Linkyshinks:  That's a neat little story you got!  I'm glad that you was able to see it!

Posting some Witcher because it's so underrated it hurts, physically.
My other favourites include Shadow of The Colossus, Lost Odyssey and Deus Ex.

I saw VGL a couple years ago when they came here.  They were pretty good.

#24 Posted by JeremyB (6 posts) -

I bought VGL vol 1 cd and love the Medal of Honor, Halo, and God of War songs. Brings back some good memories. Looking forward to vol 2 and I would love to go to the VGL concert.

I can't wait till the second one comes out!!  Vol. 1 was great, so hopefully the second one will be great too!

I don't have Itunes, instead I have Zune.  I'll have to look in the Zune marketplace.  I will definitely check it out though!!  I hope I find it!!
