I've been on a DK64 kick. It isn't the strongest OST in the series by a long shot, but I still think it had a lot of good atmospheric themes. This song definitely creeped me the **** out as a kid.

^ I like the adult version, despite it being even cornier.



Been watching Vinny's stream of FFIX. I remember not thinking much of Memoria's music, especially compared to FFVIII's final dungeon for example, but this is actually a really good song, and does a fantastic job setting the mood for the place.

I've been trying to run at least once a week again (7 week streak, but that's about to end this week lol), and the Crypt of the NecroDancer soundtrack makes excellent running music. My favorite track:

Stock screams played over what can best be described as infernal elevator music doesn't sound that impressive on paper, but somehow they made it work. The Mussorgsky is a bonus.

for as much vgm as I listen to, I don't post in this thread enough

Here's a song that CHVRCHES put out for the upcoming Death Stranding, and I think it may just be the only good thing this game will actually produce

Do songs about games count?

(probably visual spoilers for Burial At Sea if you watch. I don't remember)

Been going hard on the Shovel Knight soundtrack lately, and I'm becoming more and more convinced that this is one of the best VGM tracks ever composed

There isn't another song anywhere that hit me with the urge to replay an old game as much as this one does.

^^...I have a real fondness for the music from Gen 1. The games weren't perfect, but the music is above reproach. That one in particular stirs me. It's important-sounding. Resolute. 'I am going to tread into the long grass and catch me a Pidgey! Try and stop me, if thou canst, world!' (The world can't. We are too, too doughty. There is such strength in our mighty arms-------such courage thumping in our manly man-chests. Our bravery. Our potential! We are good boys! Ours is to stride the earth, to strive and conquer! The inescapable onus placed upon us by the gods themselves---------it is required of us that we go out and catch 'em all! Because we gotta!)

You, sir, get it. There's a real "call to action" in the music. If a kid heard this and didn't feel the need to adventure around with his Pokemon then God help him, such a weak spirit.
