Awesome Video Game Music: The Path You'll Travel

Meteos is a fantastic DS puzzle game, especially in those early days when good DS games were scarce. Still, it would hold up just as well today, and a lot of what made it stand out to me was the robust soundtrack. Each level’s theme was molded in part by your actions, but it’s the grand menu theme, The Path You’ll Travel, that takes the cake.

The Path You’ll Travel is super energetic in all the right ways. For such a quirky, oddball puzzle game that has little to no real story, the way the main menu theme leaps out never fails to put a smile on my face. It’s grand and epic in that space-faring “Save the galaxy!” kind of way, from the the blaring trumpets down to the rolling drums beats. I especially love when it breaks out (first occurring about 27 or so seconds in the above video), as if its announcing itself for a second time. It's so excited about it all! I simply find this to be a fun, jaunty theme that’s great to hum along with, and it made my experience with Meteos all the more enjoyable as a result- menus have never been this bombastic. And with that, there’s not much else to say. I just had to give a shout out to this awesome theme :)
