Video Game Music

Well, mentioning the Mega Turrican stage 1-2 music got me thinking about other games which have excellent music. So I decided to make a little list. I'm sure there's 100 other games/songs I'm forgetting about, but these are the ones that stand out off the top of my head:

Mega Turrican (Genesis) - Stage 1-2

Vice Project Doom (NES) - Not sure which level

Final Fantasy 6 (SNES) - Prelude - Yes, once upon a time I used to play RPG's.. mostly during the SNES era. The next few songs go back to that time period

Final Fantasy 6 (SNES) - Terra music

Chrono Trigger (SNES) - The Wind's Yearning

Secret of Mana (SNES) - Into the thick of it

Mega man 3 (NES) - Magnet Man - Always loved this song so much

Gomola Speed (TG16) -
I did a cover of this with live drums for SDC round 55   :)

and finally...

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 (PSX) - You (Bad Religion)... OK, not exactly game music in the traditional sense, but yeah... It was in the game. And I love Bad Religion. So...  yes, excellent stuff   :)
Audio quality is kinda trash on that site for this song, but the song skipped around on the khinsider site. Oh well.

Edit.... Lol...
How could I forget Rhythm games?
Parappa the Rapper (PSX) - Prince Fleaswallow's rap. In this level, Parappa is waiting in line to go to the bathroom. Lol.

A-Lin you got any game music picks?


  1. I don't dare to listen to that now cause I'm still not done with my sdcompo entry and I usually go on a music starvation while working on a song (as to keep all my musical appetite for the song).

    But oh boy I've got a lot of music picks, in fact I'm also keeping track of a list of games and cracktros with my top musics. I've been going through all Atari ST games, one by one just to find a particular game with a music that I really love. I don't know the name cause back at the time the disk was corrupted, but I could hear this awesome music in the loading screen before crashing. I haven't found it yet (I'm at the letter S in the list, which is really big, so many games start by the letter S). More later.

  2. How could I forget Ninja Gaiden Level 4-2? :)
