Topo's Groove Heaven "Dance or DIE!" was one of my favorite parts of Brave Fencer Musashi.  Man, that music is catchy.

Tales of Phantasia opening vocal song:

Super Famicom version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haG-PiysN_I

PSX version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgUhrhnqkGk

Both are fantastic, but though I like the SFC's bouncier intro, the PSX's version is a bit more emotionally stirring.

Sunken Shrine was playing in the FFXV car yesterday, gosh that has to be one of the most underrated Nobuo songs. Everything for FF1 actually thinking about it, maybe his best overall soundtrack.

This metal cover/remix of the Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal rival battle theme took one of my favorite pieces of VGM and made it even more awesome.

EDIT: And here's "Laughter" from Phantasy Star IV, which is one of my all time favorite boss themes.  I remember first hearing it in the fight against Zio and feeling that incredible tension like, "Crap, I'm sticking my head in the lion's mouth.  I'm going to die!"  Even when I played the game a second time and I knew my strategy to beat Zio, that music reignited that feeling of dread and I forgot everything I had planned.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GQQXKH_XXh4

I think I posted this elsewhere on the site years ago, but it deserves to be posted again here.  It's a video of my pal Justin doing a rocking cover of the stage 1 theme from Altered Beast on guitar.  Although you don't see it in the video, the dude is also a really good singer.  Back in both my Pool of Thorns and Kryovax days, I played many shows with Justin's old band.

I don't know about anyone else, but I think it would be cool to see a new Altered Beast game.

I love how around 3:43 of this DragonForce song called "Black Fire," it goes into the Double Dragon title theme.  That's a cool little Easter Egg and totally puts the random in "random video game music."  I shouldn't be surprised since the band loves video games and the guitarists even experiment with sounds that resemble video games, but it still makes me grin like a blithering idiot.

'Tis a shame, really. Some of it really stands out.

Katamari Damacy - Lonely Rolling Star

A guilty favorite of mine even though I've never actually played the game.

One of my favorite Game Boy games was Gargoyle's Quest, and here's a guy playing a medley of that game's music on a strange but cool electronic/synth/woodwind instrument called EWI.  I've never seen or heard one before, but it's cool.  Plus, it's music from a great game that was criminally overlooked.
