I am going to try and do one of these blogs somewhat regularly. I am going to choose 5 different video game songs that I love and post them here, they could have a certain theme or just be random songs. Here we go with the five songs this time, Remember these are not in any particular order.
1. Adventures of Batman and Robin - Joker Boss Theme
The first time I heard this song it blew me away. The reason it blew me away is the fact that it was on the Sega Genesis. I generally don't like Genesis music as much as the Super Nintendo, but this song certainly ranks up there in the top for me. This song was composed by Jesper Kyd, whos music I have recently discovered and liked very much.
2. Jurassic Park - Mountain
Jurassic Park on the NES was a game from when I was younger that I absolutely loved. Still to this day I fire this game up once in a while and play it for a couple of hours. I loved the sense of exploring the island from the movie and solving puzzles. Of course even since childhood I have been a sucker for a game with a good soundtrack and this game is no exception. I really could have chosen from a handful of great tunes from this game. Jurassic Parks soundtrack seems to really enhance the mood, i'm looking at you building theme.
3. Plok - Boss Theme
Plok is one of those games that I think is quite often overlooked. Plok is a really fun action/platforming game that also happens to have a pretty amazing soundtrack to it. This is one of those songs that I am surprised is coming out of the SNES. I quite often put this song into rotation while I am at work.
4. Pac-Man Champion Edition DX - Menu Song
This song is one that is certainly not overlooked or overrated, but I still love it. Pac-Man Champion Edition DX does everything so right for a Pac-Man update, and the music for me is a big part of that.
5. Suikoden - Main Theme (Guitar Version)
This song is quite a bit slower than the ones I typically like, however I absolutely love it. This game is so amazing and this song really brings back the memories of playing it. I really could sit and listen to this song play for a long time and just relax to it. One of the parts of Suikoden I loved so much was it's music and was the first video game soundtrack I ever purchased.
Well that is it for this time, next time I do one of these I am going to make it a theme. If you have an idea for a good theme or some great overlooked video game music let me know!
