Feel free to drop any kind of video game music here anytime you want.

Gran Turismo 5 - Current of the times (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HnaPkPXyPM), Mesmerium (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=treDTFmoT1k) & Suite Dreams (http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=qdjygWPbQKE)

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep - Enter the Void (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YEPsNDm4_I)

I could probably write an essay about what makes that such an amazing battle theme.

Evil Zone - Dark passage of the unknown [Ihadurca] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63Rz3pp-u8Y)
Evil Zone - Decision[Setsuna]
 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQHYZy5aXw4)

I still can't get overthat Paul Eiding (voice actor of Colonel Roy Campbell) did the voice of Gally and the Narrator from this game. Oddly enough, the music from this game is really catchy in my opinion. Even Gally's theme has a Castlevania Symphony of the Night Flavor to it:

Evil Zone - Road for Oneself (Gally "Vanish") (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9KsYSv69E8)

(Also, the only comment on this video is hysterical if you played the game: "Don't run away from this song its a classic")

Here's something different from Evil Zone though...

Cryamore - Climb, Lest I Fall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCo2MNHUmY0&list=PLuGUj0JHu6YL0QLupFIilZiUmm9mHB_7G&index=4)
The nerd in me geeks out when it changes from Orchestral Samples to the 8-bit timbres. An example of this is like how the snare from the first half the piece @0:00-1:16, which then is replaced a noise channel timbre used for the percussion. I live for nuances in music...a great job to Aivi Tran (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuGUj0JHu6YL0QLupFIilZiUmm9mHB_7G) for this! I'm really excited about this game's soundtrack, as it is still in development (the game hasn't been finished yet).

Nice to see another fan of this game's music. Evil Zone itself may have been mediocre but it had a damn good ost.


Cryamore - Climb, Lest I Fall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCo2MNHUmY0&list=PLuGUj0JHu6YL0QLupFIilZiUmm9mHB_7G&index=4)
The words of the top Youtube commenter sums up my response pretty well. "This pleases us" -- My Ears"

Cryamore has fantastic music. I'm actually trying to wrangle an interview with Aivi Tran. She's very talented.

One of my favorite tracks in my playlist:

FF Mystic Quest - Battle Medley (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnXshC0vEmo)

The music in MQ is pretty good, but what really does it for me is the fact that the game holds the most nostalgia for me of all the SNES games I've played. First RPG I ever played. Not counting the ten minutes of the NES Bard's Tale it took for me to be totally lost and confused.

BONUS! DOOM CASTLE + LAVA DOME REMIX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l6f4sIk-LM)

White Knight Chronicles - The Travelers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBTDn2wqlBg)
I was not the biggest fan of the game but thought this piece of music was great.

Guardian Crusade - Opening (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HO0rvkOPQww)
Loved this game. There was a lot of music I liked from it but the opening theme sticks out.

Pokemon Black/White - Route 10 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=465uaHc-r6A)
It may be just me but I find it hard to think of memorable pokemon music. This changed however as soon as I entered Route 10.

Suikoden 2 - Reminiscence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSSEcgooY-I)
Probably my favourite music from the Suikoden series.

Shadow of the Colossus - Counterattack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjjWCCYcUZc)
I am not sure if I would enjoy this as much if I had not played SotC beforehand. It just brings back memories of battling the Colossi.

Corpse Party Chapter 5's Main Building theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IHj1sRjHIA) Survival Horror Adventure music, or a killer dance party track?

Rune Factory Frontier - The Sweetest Time (http://avideogamemusicblog.tumblr.com/post/24413897284/title-the-sweetest-time-full-edition-album) Best opening in the Rune Factory series.

Drives me insane that there wasn't any soundtrack release for this one. I mean, the *old* Glory of Heracles games got OSTs (some of them, anyway...). Why not this one? And with a soundtrack from Hirota-san, who's in Uematsu's new band and who did about half of the Shadow Hearts series OSTs... c'mon!

Also Parn ... that "Smooth McGroove" a capella guy is super-talented. Joypad released his music getting it properly licensed. It's a strange new world we live in!

It really is.  It's crazy thinking how game music was never taken seriously in the late 90s when we were busy recording music directly from games into real player format (I just threw up in my mouth) and just getting the whole game music CD review thing started around here.

Good grief, I just said late 90s.  Can't believe how much time has passed and how much has changed.  Now you can buy full game music albums on iTunes.  Love it.

Oh, how I miss the real player days of buffering and watching that little sheep bop along to the music. I remember my first video game track ever listened to on real player when I finally joined the internetz:

Thousand Arms - Depend on You (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S5wMY-wcO8). And right after that:
Chrono Cross OST - Radical Dreamers ~ Unstolen Jewel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkKMUrEOnwc)

Heck, I'll give you some of the game music from my real player days:

Lemmings Can Can  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfsyhR9EP6k)(I'll just post this vid since it's amazing, haha...)
Trunks Hikari No Will Power  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNT901ZEUUo)
Castlevania Symphony of the Night : Marble Gallery  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Su_rr_-O4w)
Castlevania SOTN: Wandering Ghosts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwuUyIph4Ok) (In fact, this was perhaps the third game track I heard on Real Player)
Grandia Xtreme -Combat 4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8fVoScuLg4) (This track was mind blowing to me when I first heard it in its buffered glory as a kid. I still love this track today :) )
Grandia OST - Battle 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgEO8gFQgkw) I didn't hear the original, in fact, if you get this theme and put it through a blender...THAT.
Final Fantasy VI Decisive Battle (Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hcfuRiPm_s) Oof, the nostalgia.


Yeah...that's all I can remember. I'll end with this:  FF6 - The Decisive Battle on Eight Floppy Drives (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX7KZg8ZQj4)



...since you guys are talking bout deserts, I'll add this: The Lost Angelic Chronicles of Frane: Dragons' Odyssey Original Soundtrack (http://jordansteven.bandcamp.com/track/fired-up-krokopp-desert) and From The Ground Up (Krokopp Desert Boss) (http://jordansteven.bandcamp.com/track/from-the-ground-up-krokopp-desert-boss)

Heck, I'll give you some of the game music from my real player days:
Grandia Xtreme -Combat 4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8fVoScuLg4) (This track was mind blowing to me when I first heard it in its buffered glory as a kid. I still love this track today

That is my favorite Grandia track.

Nier: Kaine's Salvation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDftyQ96ZVs)
One of my favourite songs from NieR. I love how a lot of their music has lyrics. I can't think of much games that do and even those who do don't have it to the extent NieR does.

FFVII Crisis Core: The Price of Freedom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOJ91H4mraU)


Final Fantasy X: To Zanarkand (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-0G_FI61a8)


Radiant Historia: The Red Locus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j37_JS1cQQI)
I actually loved all the battle themes from Radiant Historia. I liked how they were all named after a colour.


Black and White: Sailor Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0x4Kw_y4fg)
If you have played the game, this song will forever remain in your head.

Glory of Heracles Music - Battle Theme 3  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QZ90nvjMgU)

Drives me insane that there wasn't any soundtrack release for this one. I mean, the *old* Glory of Heracles games got OSTs (some of them, anyway...). Why not this one? And with a soundtrack from Hirota-san, who's in Uematsu's new band and who did about half of the Shadow Hearts series OSTs... c'mon!

Missed this. I would totally petition the heck out of them to release a soundtrack for this game. It's so weird that this game went under my radar, and it wasn't until I randomly saw a sale on amazon that I finally caved in to buy it...for my sister (wasn't even for me). She liked it, and I tried it out and fell in love with this game and especially it's soundtrack. I hope they consider at least releasing it digitally...

A big reason why final fantasy 7 is along with ffx my favourite game of all time is because of the moments that happen while these 2 songs play. These are the most touching moments in FF7 in my opinion.

I'm a bigger fan of Quaternary and Unary.... but I oddly like the crazy beats, they helped agitate me to solve the puzzles on deck..  Yeah, weird reasoning.  I do like that one for being 1000x more chill though.

The FF7 Boss theme I forgot how good it was till you played it here.... I love when that weird synth instrument comes in, it's like something between a flute and a beep-sound (comes in at the 37 sec. mark).  I also fully endorse boss/battle music with organs in it.

This boss theme from Xenosaga 3. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX16xSp_IMw) I remember hearing it on the website for the localized copy before the game was released and falling in love.

Oooh, I loved this one, had it as a cell phone ring tone till people said it was kinda intense (with that in mind, now it tells me when work is calling).  Really catchy, oddly paced.

http://youtu.be/v_8vgQS3do0
Star Ocean 2 - Moderate
I was going through a bad time as school when I picked up SO2, so the idea of being whisked away to some exotic planet sounded just dandy.  But more than that, I loved how the game took you from a futuristic Earth to a really pretty, nature-filled planet; I think the town music in both Arlia and Mars (this song being from the latter) definitely give off that idea of being far from home, but still peaceful with that.

http://youtu.be/tYfHuImlFzk
Atelier Ayesha - Rain in the Dried Up Valley
Very earthy-sound.  There's a great buildup, a strong piano rhythm, and an exhiliterating crescendo at the 1minute mark.

http://youtu.be/iLkfmnK7t20
Dragon's Dogma - Character Creation
Can you ask for a more weird blend of genres?  Very interesting tune, back when the demo came out, I cleaned my room a bit and let the song play.

http://youtu.be/qS_3GEdXvPQ
Halo 4 - Blue and Green (KOAN remix)
More chill music, very, very nice.

Man, I love Xenosaga. That is probably my one of my favourite general fight random boss tracks in any game.

My choices:

The Calmest Streets of Rage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKaP3Zonfno) The menu theme for the first Streets of Rage. Yuzo Koshiro's best work was on the Streets of Rage series. I particularly like the Slap Bass on this track.

X5 Boss Battle. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvzZq9D7pqg) There is something chaotic about this song that I find very addictive. I think it is one of the weaker songs in the game itself, but I find myself drawn to listen to it as music.

Best chase music? Best chase musc. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDPacnNHnn8) Here I reveal a terrible secret. I only posted to comment on the XS3 Boss theme, but I felt like I was going to a potluck without bringing anything so I thought of Random VGM. Anyway, I know a lot of people dislike XS2's music and while a lot of it was bland I think the standout songs are great. With songs like this Yuko Kaijura really kicked ass, but I think Hosoe did a good job too. I loved hearing this song return as the theme to HaKox, when I figured that out it blew my mind.

Also, I'm such an airhead. I didn't realize Nobuo's "Waltz for the Moon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFXZ618pU_0)" during the ballroom scene is just an arrangement of Julie's theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB4mtpg5Fns)/Eyes on Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qcW0oiLKHg). My sister pointed this out to me while I was playing the theme and told me I was playing the ballroom theme. I told her no I wasn't it, until it dawned on me while I was making coffee moments later that's it the same theme, just arranged as a waltz. She surpassed her game music superior that day...I taught her well.

God that music gave me a nostalgia-gasm. I totes agree about the Arlia and Mars music; much of the music from early Expel became the standard by which I judged other fantasy RPGs for a while. Many of the tracks have a serene otherness to them that will always call up quiet woodlands in my mind every time I hear them.

Dice, this penguin in your sig intrigues and pleases me.

Or perhaps something a bit more humble in comparison for this victory, such as a a gift of spring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAndtPjTHfg ;)

Honestly, when I feel a victory, these come into my head more:
[warning, Sakuraba-fan incoming]

http://youtu.be/Qv4JJTYJtEY
Valkyrie Profile's is seriously loud and awesome and makes me wanna dance

http://youtu.be/5qaAwq1uiZg
Star Ocean 3's makes me feel good about myself[?] (it's soothing or something)

http://youtu.be/1Io0DLo_G90
FFX gets special mention because it sounds like the background music of a "Stay Fit/Eat Healthy!" 80s TV campaign.
...I kinda like when the FF series keeps the first 5 seconds of the fanfare and does something 'new'.


But I'll finish with a game that many people probably haven't had much exposure to (which I'd like to think is the better and more latent function of a thread like this):

Victory!! From Venus & Braves

Of a particular treat is the opening music and imagery (it picks up).

Always a fan of the Sakuraba. ;)

Never heard of Venus and Brave...though I'm not surprised, it's not like I ever actively looked for it or related games. Good catch :)

Also, these arrangements are great:
Battle (VS Trainer) - Pocket Monsters Original Soundtrack Best 1997-2010 Vol.1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfSYeH1OTEw)
Battle (VS Wild Pokémon) - Pocket Monsters Original Soundtrack Best (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwzzJUFOOsQ&list=PL938278756A6533B4&index=6)
Battle (VS Gym Leader) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRV0j-pZ4e8&list=PL938278756A6533B4&index=19)
Fight! Gym Leader (Diamond/Pearl) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuGQT6t0-yA&list=PL938278756A6533B4&index=82)

and here's a victory theme arrangement:  Victory over a Gym Leader! - Pocket Monsters Original Soundtrack Best 1997-2010 Vol.1  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KZMITW0yCI&list=PL938278756A6533B4&index=86). That brass sounds so mocking. ;)

Grandia OST - Complete Victory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CioTHQNbp3E)
Grandia II Victory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfU3P8l89Mk) FRESH
Grandia Xtreme: Battle Victory Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZgX61Nk80E)
Game Music You Can't Find Elsewhere: Grandia 3 - Perfect Victory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKVK0C3WYoE) Did anyone else notice that this theme is just an upbeat arrangement of the melodic fragment from the main theme (http://youtu.be/PBrW07Ri-J0?t=2m15s) from the first Grandia?

And since I'm linking Grandia, here's a personal anecdote from me:

Before I ever got a playstation, I would search the websites on my brother's ol' IMB computer for fan websites dedicated to games I were interested in (which was practically every RPG that was translated). One of them was a Grandia website that hosted also MIDI files of the game's music. I first heard all the music through that website's MIDI stash and seriouslly though this was the Boss theme of the game (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9Vjau6BlpU). Years later when I finally got a playstation for my christmas/birthday present--bless my parents' soul--I bought this game and found out it was a regular battle theme. My mind was blown, because this didn't sound like regular battle music because it sounded so amazing to me--again, MIDI was my only source of music--that I would go into battles and just kick around to hear the music.

When I stumbled upon vgmusic.com, I think I had a heart attack from excitement. Another personal anecdote from me and then I'll stop flooding the music thread. ;):

For my 8th grade (2001-2) English class, we had to read "My Brother Sam is dead" and do journal entries on each chapter. I ask my teacher instead of writing journal entries, if I could re-write each chapter...and make fun of it in some way. If I remember correctly, she hesitatingly agreed, with reason, but she soon saw that it was an interesting challenge for myself and allowed it. Now, the game music part of this story comes into play here, as while I was re-writing each chapter, I was listening to all the MIDis of Final Fantasy 7, especially these two: Jenova Absolute and Still More Fighting. There were a lot of other things I was listening to, but those stuck out from my memory the most. Also, the only thing I remember from the chapter re-write is something about the main character's mother being a raging drunk and sumo wrestlers.

Oh, and almost forgot:  Grandia 3 Music: Boss Battle V1 (A Hot Crash) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi-pR_auhTM) These beats are also  FRESH

And here's not a Kingdom Hearts tune, absolutely not: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ckxy-i7Dc5U

I'd like "Time's Scar" more if it didn't have that one minute intro.  It's not that it's a bad intro, but it's the change of pace (when I want something exciting!!) that means it still takes a minute to get to... =/
I actually made a cut of the song that "gets to the point" a bit faster.  But yeah, totally phenominal.

But I can't help but love WA1's Into the Wildnerness either... it's one of those "it was my first PSX game" moments that did it.

@Agent D.: This commercial?

Going back to game music used on websites, this track from SMT3: Nocturne (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fuT34EgZVA&list=PL5524B5F3234426D4&index=39) was used for the game's website along with the Lucifer's Call artwork showing the Demi-fiend with all the fiends, and it really impressed upon me the game's atmosphere and sense of mystical apocalypse. And due to the game's difficulty (which was amplified because of my lack of experience with the SMT franchise at the time), every time the track popped up in the game I knew that I was about to be fucked up.

I got 'em all. And I really enjoyed that game. But some of those achievements were snoooooze-fest boring.

Was just listening to the music for this game and remembered I forgot to reply to this. Actually, the train one went really fast, but the submarine one though...The ones I'm missing are beat the game 10 times on hard and normal and use all attack variance (I have no clue how to get this, what does it mean by this?). I can't wait to play the next game of the series...but it's only for the PS3, isn't it? Rats :(

For such a short piece, it's one of my favorites from the Suikoden IV soundtrack. When I first heard this, I was blown away at how simple the music itself was, but when played during duels = rush of excitement!

Xenosaga Episode I - Battle's End  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3x-GkZyQlQ&list=PLB4E5D2BD7AC0FC83)

It's short but yeah I love the hell out of it too.  Maybe part of it was the contrast against a kinda "meh" battle theme, but I loved it.  Certainly an actual orchestra does magical things to music.

FF games have been no slouch musically, and I especially love when they take chances with other composers.  While FFX-2's OST is a bit of a [funky] mixed bag, it certainly had one of the best opening themes as far as FF's go (personally speaking of course).  It really has a calm and nostalgic sound (http://youtu.be/RjOEl-sAsjw).  And I especially loved the visuals that acompany it, they're subtle but tastefully presented (a nice counter to the more flashy attire?).

Also, this came on my iPod after not hearing it for a while and fell in love with Crystal Chronicles the Crystal Bearer's main theme: Sacred Heaven (http://youtu.be/mh6NJNVTMWw).  It's very subtle, heroic, and I loved how they worked in the FF-theme with a few notes from a harp to bring it back in.

I know most people prefer the soundtrack of the second Devil Survivor over the first but I personally prefer the first. I really like the rock/metal like atmosphere it gives.

Devil Survivor Deep Night (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM6DClLQaow)
Loved this piece during my first playthrough. It just cut in, in the middle of another musical piece and you immediately knew you were screwed. It reminds me of what (Tunnels) said in the Badass moments in games thread, how music can be the cause of a scene being badass or amplify it and I have to agree with him. When the first Bel just showed up you knew you were screwed.

Devil Survivor Garuda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibyOMDcyO3U)

And it's boss fights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFA77aGU3MM).  - I just remembered how old this theme can get when you have to keep fighting the Mind/Breath and Death Mask creatures in the final dungeon. Great XP though.

Star Ocean 3 OST - Bitter Dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CugyaQzmx8)


Whenever I think of truly good music that exists in our world..... My head immediately jumps to "Bitter Dance".

...On a serious note, I do like when it kinda "lightens up" in the end.

Love FFIV's overworld/main theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKqFz5IZSvM).
And it's boss fights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFA77aGU3MM).

The former was when I started to really enjoy game music, but I loved Troian Beauty even more for creating a lovely 16bit map.  And....um, I learned how to play the song on accordion. yaay
The latter gives me nightmares because some of the bosses in FFIV suck major moose balls.
I like the battle with the four fiends theme though.... it conveys the appropriate amount of distress when fighting them.

http://youtu.be/IsLnioY3FVY
FF7's Fight On deserves some love too.  Mainly because the 30 second point rocks.

I'm a sucker for credit rolls that just use a variation of a game's main theme(s):

Final Fantasy XIII (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4ytiqB6xlU)
Kingdom Hearts 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPwDrsTjNns)
Tales of Vesperia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCUVzgshCRQ)

And of course, after pouring 80 hours into it over the past two weeks, I cannot exclude Tales of Graces (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkUmajxHGBc)

I love the Vesperia's take on Ring a Bell, it's probably one of the most chill/catchy ending tunes.
I also thought Tales of Graces' end theme was the best version of "White Wishes".... BoA can't sing in English very well...

http://youtu.be/UrYaZIV7Z8c
Throwing FF12's ending in for good measure.  FF12 also has my favorite logo image of the series.

And to expand your OST know-how, here's some Falcom end credits for Zwei II....it sounds like a mix of the ToV ending with something "new world" and adventerous sounding

Agree with all points. Especially that the elemental fiends theme is very fitting for those battles. Trojan Beauty would be very interesting on accordion! That's cool!

Haven't heard any FFVII music in a long time... I should replay that sucker. Been years. Just the idea of the tedium of chocobo breeding makes me want to punch something, but I would do it anyway, cuz I would want my Knights of the Round summon before fighting any of the weapons.


EDIT: Also wanted to add a few more from the Lunar series.
Eternal Blue Opening (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGwLZsQIEM4) - one of the my favorite pieces in all of video game-dom. No, not the version with lyrics. That's just awful.
I've always loved this piece, since I bought the Sega CD version new almost 20 years ago... Sh** time flies. I like the "complete" version better, hence the link.

On the flipside, I prefer the Sega CD version of Promenade (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_Eo6vrj6DQ). It's more upbeat.

The original Sega CD version of Silver Star: Vane theme  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekNWJSlbjbA) - Always liked this one, too. Nothing really stands out about it. It's a bit somber, actually. I just really dig it, though.

Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter - Lift (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMXoOQ6iwWM)

Breath of Fire IV time

I love Truth and Dreams.  There's something very nostalgic about it.  It's a lovely yet poignant melody.  I actually loved the game for taking you to the strangest places, it felt almost like an old school fairy tale.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2agNvwgJ6fU&feature=share&list=PL414272F09DE61244
Kudos to BoFIV for taking Maurice Ravel's "Pavane for a Dead Princess" and using it in game as well. The song is both beautiful yet sad and used for a really peculiar part in the game.  It's not everyday a game incorporates actual classical music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGbKecflE1k&feature=share&list=PL414272F09DE61244
Also throwing up Fou-Lu's battle theme.  Great character, and not often again to see a game use a goddamn citar.... in a battle theme no less!!  (and BoFIV had some good battle tunes).

Breath of Fire V rep

Silver Sound always gets me.  There's something cold and sad about this tune that strikes me every time.

Won't lie, I used this ditty when I booted up Windows.  Sounded damn fine

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwiMOv59fpw&feature=share&list=PL91C55D8D730E70BC
The Upper Layer Area.  I love how boisterous this song is, appropriate for the, almost literal, "upper crust" of underground society.  But I much prefer...

http://youtu.be/jpcPpWlg4c0
The Middle Layer Area counters the above with something more thoughtful and calm.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BksX_ISV5q0&feature=share&list=PL91C55D8D730E70BC
Electric Power Building is one of those songs that's amazing, but you can't half-ass it.  You gotta listen from the start and listen to the tune build up.  It's a really cool, inspiring dungeon theme that's not without still making you feel a bit anxious.... hell, all the dungeons did to some extent.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pPDs-EyL6Q&feature=share&list=PL91C55D8D730E70BC
Small Departure.  For a game that likes to throw a lot of grief your way, some of the more positive and sweet tunes can mean a lot.  This was definitely one of them -- and I think this plays when you finally became a complete party.

Other goods:

http://youtu.be/J50Kq_kRrjI
Star Ocean 3 -- Calm Mind Reflected in the Pupil.  FIND A MORE CHILL SONG, I DARE YA.  This song is just ridiculously serene, relaxing, and lovely.  It suits the city you're in very much.

http://youtu.be/NrebiFzG2lA
Eternal Sonata -- Continuous Divider.  To go one with chill songs, here's a "chill dungeon"; it's quite lovely.... quite frankly though so is the whole damn soundtrack.  Hard to explain, but there's a feeling of "meaningful-ness" in this tune that is both courageous and calm.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcotTRJhQ44&feature=share&list=PL68E09FBCFDD19453
More Sakuraba; Baten Kaitos -- Gentle Wind.  I am a big fan of relaxing or exciting music.  Sad or "mysterious" tunes tend to get locked out of my play list, I'm less interested in them.  I really, really love Sakuraba and his ability to create these relaxing tunes that take me what feels like a million miles away and this is certainly one of those tracks.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JfDxq2z3io&feature=share&list=PL68E09FBCFDD19453
Baten Kaitos -- Rumbling of the Earth.  For the lack of any guitar or heavy instruments, this song is damn thrilling.  I love the use of chants and vocals to sort of emphasize the "earthiness" part as well.

Maybe it's because we weren't given the opportunity to hear the song as much as Japan, but I'm also a real sucker for FFV's battle theme.  When I played Final Fantasy V for the first time (around when FF9 was out) it sounded so.....um, exotic?  Kinda this weird game that got left behind but still felt familiar.  I'm kinda romanticizing it, but I really loved FFV when I finally got to it.

I generally like most of the battle themes.  I've oddly fell "out of love" for Laguna's FF8 theme though (heard it too much?) and FFX's, to me, is the least memorable.

Yeah.  FFX's song isn't bad, just really generic.  It has a good rhtyhm, but there's nothing particularly complicated to make it stnad out.  'Hurry', on the other hand....  Yeah, it's definitely a much more interesting tune. 

I also love the summon battle theme -- again, it provides a great sense of intensity and urgency, and it incorporates the "main religious tune" damn nicely

Music Madness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzF79H23By8) (Donkey Kong Country Returns)***

*that song, along with 10-15 others, is remixed brilliantly in Donkey Kong Country returns.  Worth checking out.  
**this is one of several jazzy remixes of Jungle Groove / Jungle Hijinks.  Most of the silhouette stages use a jazzy version like this one.
***that's a remix of Fear Factory from DKC, and the stage has its obstacles and enemies moving in time to the music.  It's fantastic.

Simplicity aside, the melodies are lovely in FF9.

Of course I'm a fan of Vamo Alla Flamenco.  I also like Quina's Theme for combining "earthy" and that sort of 8-bit "bloop bleep" sound.  Treno is almost a perfect town theme, and the very first battle theme (during the Stage Show sequence) is something I wish was made into the actual battle music.

He's my favorite character from my favorite Final Fantasy and I find everything about his personality agreeable. Even his theme music puts me in a "me" mood. Listen!

I actually knew it was this before I clicked for whatever reason.
Either I gotta replay the game again, but for whatever reason I cannot remember when his theme plays in-game...

I typically hit on "softer" or calmer tunes; I know a lot of peeps here are into boss fight music and more "heavy stuff".  I prefer the soft stuff while I work on art pieces or school stuff.  So forgive the lighter selections.

http://youtu.be/WYWKHoFn6i8
Here was the pretty brilliant version of the song Rose of May redone for Theatrhythm (which I have the hardest time typing)

http://youtu.be/tYfHuImlFzk
Rain in the Dried up Valley - Atelier Ayesha.  The earthy pan flute and the piano make a nice combination!

http://youtu.be/7hCNQQqG5ew
Rumbling of the Earth - Baten Kaitos.  One of the more unique-sounding Sakuraba boss themes.

Let's keep "earth-y" songs going

http://youtu.be/nBKqX3txZt4
Earth Painting - Legend of Mana.  This is one of those tracks you can be hooked on within seconds of hearing it, IMO.

http://youtu.be/lGGoGvAbOeE
City of Flickering Destruction - Legend of Mana.  Yoko Shimomura manages to find the saddest and most lovely notes for this piece.

http://youtu.be/6Dy74NOzcS8
Gaur Plain - Xenoblade.  Back for that "your ideal RPG" topic, someone said Xenoblade-like.  I kinda agreed.  The 3:50 mark is my favorite.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlH0w-C2Lv8&list=PL5F27AB3AF0FC4F48&feature=share&index=29
Rim Elm - Legend of Legaia.  I think I just like pan flutes...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKTstC-WOBQ&list=SP85xkyXc-6KO_LXnkHX3Rg0PZaBIu6yD0&feature=share&index=15
Paying the Worthless War - Legaia Duel Saga.  An odd example of a crappy game with phenomenal musical talents.  This is the "campfire" theme.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m91MdApD474&list=PL0772E34775C81D9E&feature=share&index=40
Prologue - Breath of Fire Dragon's Quarter.  Almost type-casted composer Hitoshi Sakimoto gets given a gig for a "tech-y" version of a usually medieval game and the results are beautiful!

http://youtu.be/msEbmIgnaSI
Maybe I'll Even Buy a Sheep - Breath of Fire IV.  I think BoFIV was one of the first games I could say I liked almost +80% of the tracks on.  Anyways, I loved how the game took place on a planet that was similarly almost 80% Asian-themed, so the fact that several tracks use a CITAR was pretty cool to me.

http://youtu.be/TSlDUPl7DoA
Rust Colour - Star Ocean 3.  I love acoustic.  A town theme based on that suits me just fine.  But I do like the somewhat sad air in this song.

I like how a lot of the 'creepy tracks' in Silent Hill have this suffocating feel to them. It's unsettling, but in a very attractive way. The people that worked on the first 3 or 4 games in the series really understood the whole thing with making the horror something desirable if only for pure morbid curiosity.

I always wonder the mind set you have to be in or the one you go into when writing Silent Hill (or any horror-type) songs.
I picture a dark room.

"I think that the sounds in Resident Evil are pretty formal. I would say we are used to hearing them. Whereas for Silent Hill 2, I really tried to create something that would surprise you, something that would challenge your imagination as if the sounds were going under your skin. What I mean by that is to create a physical reaction for the gameplayer such as a feeling of apprehension and unease."

FF XIII has a very good soundtrack even if not as memorable as some other entries in the series: Among the best are:(The battle theme is obvious so I wont even bother)

Prelude - http://youtu.be/RIbo3Z7DmkQ - I watched the opening atleast 1-2 everytime I booted up the game, it was glorious.
The Archylte Steppe - http://youtu.be/PBoBO0YMBys - I spent atleast 15 hours running around this field, it was fantastic, easily the most fun part of the game. The soothing music totally nailed the right atmosphere. The first time I saw this area, I was blown away, It looked so good that I couldnt believe it. It's easily the best looking game of this gen imo.
Will to Fight - http://youtu.be/JN9ulQ2P9Qg - The vocals during 2:50-3:50 really create this unique mood and are catchy as all hell. It's easily the best dungeon theme in the game.

Of the little that I played of XIII-2 I absolutely loved:

Invisible Invaders - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUSHpQ2vuI4 - Skip the first weird minute, then it's awesome.

While Kokia's English is better than most, I found the song distracting when you're playing in the field (and the change of musical pace when you'd hit a battle, which -- by the way -- also has an awesome tune (http://youtu.be/dkv10qgFaW8)).
Nevertheless, it is lovely and I love Noel a lot (that whole segment was wonderfully melancholy and my favorite part of 13-2).  I'm kinda surprised at a lack of LR music here..that OST is baller*.

Anyways, the Deus Ex music is pretty pumpin'.  I like it for whiel I'm drawing things.

And I love the themes of the Marvel side for MvC3.  I figure it's kinda easy to make the tunes for the capcom side (since they're from videogames) but less so for comic characters where already established theme songs aren't a thing.

Evergrace -  Buying Goods at Palmira (http://youtu.be/y9KMpOaVZDs)

This song is an absolute MIRACLE. If this was somehow recorded live (I know, prolly not!), I would love to have seen that actually happen. I'm just imagining a bunch of musicians getting together, wildly flailing as they attempt to play something resembling music.

Go figure that a game not released here with a well-known Japanese composer turns to be one of his better offerings

Motoi Sakuraba's* "Beyond the Labyrinth" is a lovely and unique soundtrack and quite different from a lot of his previous work.  And also again proves that his Tales work is more often than not his "less impressive" work compared to his work for other series'.

Ooooh me oh my. I absolutely adore this entire soundtrack. I still consider his Tri-crescendo soundtracks, Star Ocean 3, and Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria to be that man's best work, but Beyond the Labyrinth gives me a nice welcome reaction of "Wait are you SURE this was Sakuraba" along with Dark Souls. However, that last track, "Sad Wars" is a track I don't recall hearing at ALL actually. I thought I'd already heard the whole thing, honestly. Odd.

I think it was established that the music budget isn't there for the Tales titles or that they want a really traditional RPG sound to the titles than the progressive rock or classical-esque music he composes otherwise.  But his work between the Tales series and other titles is seriously like night and day (like Tales gets him on board and he whips out an older keyboard).

I feel as if this didn't quite start becoming the case until after Vesperia, however. To be more specific, Abyss and Vesperia both used similar instrument sets to his better work (Tri Ace and Tri-crescendo) and had some fairly fantastic tunes. To this day, the BGM of Dahngrest in Vesperia is one of my favorite town themes in ANY rpg.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-_D8_M03H0 Tales of Vesperia: Oath of Unity

Graces had some interesting departures, but it seems like that's around when his Tales soundtracks started getting somewhat...boring. The seemingly downgraded instrument sets that started in Xillia haven't helped matters at all. For a good illustration of what I mean by this, listen to some tracks from "Tales of Series Battle Arrange 1," and then compare it to the miserable "Tales of Series Battle Arrange 2."

I still think Grace's Irish-inspired River Dancing Battle Theme (http://youtu.be/_JhhapDliAc) is one of the single greatest things I've ever heard from the series.

I've actually been hearing people complain about the "sameyness" of Tales Of soundtracks since Abyss. That was the second Tales games I played with him as the composer, and while I do enjoy most of the soundtrack, a few of those tunes did sound like Symphonia tracks with slight note changes here and there. ^_^; I noticed it even more with Vesperia, and I can't even remember what I've heard from Graces and Xillia because at this point, it's all just kind of blurring together music-wise.

I love the Robo song from Chrono Trigger.  It's hard to fuck his theme up, it's so melodically up-lifting (especially in contrast to the surroundings you get enlist him from).

Also I loved the Persona 4 Arena remix.  Lovely then cool.

The very existence of that song makes me a little sad simply because of all of the idiocy it breeds. Would you believe that there are some people who refuse to acknowledge that Schala's Theme is the original even when given the dates?

The battle tracks are fast paced and FINALLY "cool" again after the cute-sy departure Ar Tonelico 3 took. There are also a couple throwback tracks to AT1 too, which was pretty nifty.

Next to Dahngrest from Tales of Vesperia, I totally consider Guara Balbao to be one the most absolutely chill town themes I've ever heard.
Also, TERRIBURU MONSTURU ATTACKINGU CURU is also one of my favorite standard boss themes in any game ever, really.

One of Nintendo's worst decisions (IMO) in the last decade was to declare that they'd be limiting the number of soundtracks they'd release. Lots of their games aren't getting OST releases. Twilight Princess was a notorious one. Another one that ABSOLUTELY deserves its own attention, but didn't get it: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

This soundtrack is all kinds of amazing.

Here's a pick: Deep-Dive Deep.

Next to Dahngrest from Tales of Vesperia, I totally consider Guara Balbao to be one the most absolutely chill town themes I've ever heard.
Also, TERRIBURU MONSTURU ATTACKINGU CURU is also one of my favorite standard boss themes in any game ever, really.

Wild Arms 5: Persephone Battle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Mj1qnf2uUI)
This is most certainly NOT the sort of song that comes to anyone's mind when discussing Wild Arms, but nevertheless, this is a beautifully crafted song, and one of my first exposures to the soundtrack of Wild Arms 5.

Wild ARMs V remains the only game in the series I haven't played (more than the intro), and I hate myself a little more every day for it. I need to go find a copy. This music is outstanding.

And I actually love the composers that took Naruke's place. She's fantastic too, but their styles definitely fit the series well.

EDIT

another fantastic thing about Terrible Monster Wrecking Crew is around  is that around 2 minutes, you get a few phrases of the original Wild ARMs' boss theme. OH MAH GOD

Where exactly in the Wild ARMs Boss theme are you referring to? I can't quite seem to put my ear on it (perhaps I'm loosing my hearing sooner than thought!). :)

And since we are talking about one of my favorite series, here's my contribution: Wild ARMS Advanced 3rd "Wild Bunch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8qnk1fWK9A)" (extended ver (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8eZI7SI5HE))

Whenever this track turns up on my music player and my sis is around, I hunch my shoulders over and start snapping my fingers (the reaction is always priceless). I do this because once it gets to the battle part of the track (~0:59) I always get a West Side Story vibe. I can imagine the seven fighting, with a group of thugs surrounding them and amusingly snapping their fingers while grunting. You got the Morricone flavor, might as well add a pinch of Bernstein. ;)

I wouldn't have noticed the WA1 boss theme since I found it...kinda generic compared to the pretty riveting battle theme.  That, and I *loved* how bosses would BLOW UP and reward you with that fuckign awesome victory theme.  ...My mind wanders.

Anyways, I LOVE that first WA3 boss theme.  The soft banjo twang works well against the heavy piano and that awesome "VROM" sound.

I love this one.  The start of it really gets me pumped.  Even though.... (http://youtu.be/MJ2sURDC6ZI).  Ah, whatever, excellent homage to the grate Morricone! 
Shit, that reminds me, the album quality of the Wild Arms OST (the first game) was out of this world.  FF7 sounded like dogshit midi half the time, but the Wild Arms OST was a real cut above the rest.

Short, but I loved this as "Zelda's version of Shadow of the Colossus' winning theme (http://youtu.be/147rTHgKmXY).  It's not as impressive, but I find it's catchy and really worked in the heat of the moment.

With respect to OCRemix....argh, I'm torn.  Too much stuff goes to OONTZ OONTZ OONTZ, it drives me crazy.  Naturally, the bits I do like I *love* and have served as awesome alternates to more "old school" sounding game tracks.

Yep, Naruke did a great job synthesizing that Morricone Flavor into her WA soundtracks. It's funny you bring up that video, because it's the same video I start off people wanting to know more about WA music or Naruke's influences. What's even better is when a composer borrows from themselves and haves fun with their themes and make new ones. I refer specifically to these two tracks:

Wild ARMs 3 - Only The Night Sky Knows  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9SWsTx5R4w)
Wild ARMS 4 - Starlight and the Passing Breeze (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PslRznnZr1A&list=PL883886FBAB9638A0)

Beautiful melodies.

I'm still waiting for my Wild Arms 4 soundtrack to come in the mail...anticipating it greatly. I've been playing the game since last week and enjoying every moment. It's odd, because originally I wasn't impressed too much with the soundtrack, but now I can't put it down. I'm very pleased with it as a whole, especially the battle themes (very typical of me ;)). One particular track I adore is "The Shining Spear Pierces the Darkness (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVDvz_-IF3Q&list=PL883886FBAB9638A0)"

The overall track is incredibly pleasing to me on a passive and attentive listening basis. Passively, this track kicks all kinds of butt. Literally riddled with 'orchestral hit' samples, timpani, percussion, great wonderful cymbal crescendos, electric guitar, rock organ--and those infectious rhythms! Attentively, I love that intro (0:00-0:04). It's a F# Hexatonic Blues scale (F#, A, B, B#/C, C# [no e in this intro however]), no? Another special treat about this track I love is that they use the music box instrument (starts at 0:33) that is heard whenever Kresnik opens the music box he carries with him. That's it for me for now about that track...

It's funny, but that Link 'winning theme' is very goofy sounding to me, like it doesn't belong in Twilight Princess (perhaps wind waker?). I think it is that the boss music that plays is very menacing and when this pop up, it just breaks that suspense/ambiance.

I love the song too, but I also gotta throw some kudos to the visuals.  No fancy video (hell, I think the opening FMV did..."enough" in that regard), no pretty effects, no big narrative.  Just the main players and the item that represents them.  Perfect.

Bravely Default - The Snake that Devours the Horizon
http://youtu.be/OkdW91gocF4

I actually think this is the most PERFECT final boss theme I've heard in *years*.  It's got that touch of evil/creepy that you need for a big finale, but I love how it turns into a medley by the end combining the game's main theme, I think the overworld theme, and the each of the main character's themes (in order from respective parts of their songs). 

Also, being live, I love that you see the musicians (one being what looks like a 70-year-old flutist).

Just got "DEATHSMILES IIX Music Pack Contents Original Sound Track (http://vgmdb.net/album/20436)" in the mail today, and I must say, this is a very, very pleasant album. When I got to track 06 Field C, I with hit with this strong familiarity, like I've heard it before (which was not the case!). The reason why it was so familiar--and I guessed this right when I gave a wild guess about it--is that it was composed by Michiko Naruke. My Wild ARMS series soundtrack listening prepared me for this moment (haha). ;)

I only knew Iwadare was on the soundtrack for the Final boss theme (which was hilarious). What tipped me off that it was Naruke was the percussion and the use of strings. Enjoy: (I'll just follow suit and do Ygg's pic/track link [I'll also throw in some dragon quest as well]) :)

Geez, the more I hear of Yasunori Shiono's work, the more surprised I am that he seems to have pretty much entirely fallen out of the composer scene.

Stage 1 "World of Forest" from Athena (arcade version; there was an NES port).  One of those bad games I actually liked as a kid.

And for something "good," here's "Lost Painting" from Symphony of the Night.  It's easily my favorite piece of music from the game.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYwS6481oQk

The amount of swanky music in the last two posts is delightful

http://youtu.be/r1jQD6afKRQ  Star Ocean 3 (SO Forever: Jazz Version).  It says "jazz", but there's a lot more in there.

http://youtu.be/OJipZP9ZYy0   Tales of Xillia (City of Another Civilization).  I never get tired of this song, for a city theme, it's so damn chill.

http://youtu.be/7FRuvSm7DIg  FF13-2 (Knights of the Goddess).  This battle theme always makes me happy.  So much energy!!!!! :D

http://youtu.be/Gfxf4x3L1bs  Gravity Rush (Resistance and Extermination).  This one has a lot of energy too.  Classical instruments, a theme that is gentle, smooth, and exciting.

Unfortunately, there never was an official soundtrack release for Rune Factory Frontier; however, this song in its entirety is part of Nakatsuka Takeshi's "Kiss & Ride" album. Today, I have uploaded a much, much better wav ripped version of this track directly from the album (the rest of the album is very catchy, in case you're wondering ;)). I've also included a scan of the lyrics from this song from the booklet. Enjoy! :)

While this isn't strictly "VGM" exactly, these songs are clearly video game inspired, and the guy who composed these is, at the very least, attempting to work his way toward composing for video games. Just consider these...helping a budding composer get noticed! Guy's got a really unique style too. Think Sakuraba's PS1 works with some deep/dark/edgy undertones.

Nier Tribute Album -echo-
Emil/Sacrifice
I love the ambience and techy elements compounded with Emil's theme's vocals~  Very pretty and strange.
http://youtu.be/GaCJgSxznwI

Kid Icarus: Uprising
Thunder Cloud Temple
I loved this stage a lot; it's a cool mix of elec guitar, strings, and just a lil' bit of the main theme. 
"Yeah! Did you see THAT thunder?" "No, because you can't SEE thunder!" x)
http://youtu.be/9yVTIEtWJ8A

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
Under the Weight
I was talking about it, so thought I'd post it! I love the hollers with the electric guitar.  It feels atypical for a boss theme and oddly appropriate (especially that title!!!) for a fight against Titan with its very imposing sounds.

^ strange and interesting choice!! I always bop my head around when I hear it

DICE'S VGM ROUNDUP..... SITAR AND ACCORDION EDITION!!

SITAR

Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Potion Shop
This song is so weird and creepy, but it works so well against some of the cartoony personas in Hyrule (namely, in this game, the strange potion lady and the only living resident of the main City who collects ghosts). :S
...yeah not a good start with this one, but it's kinda fun!  And surprisingly few 'desert-like' dungeons in the series use a sitar.  So cool?
http://youtu.be/S3D_uCLxjXA

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time - Air Harmony
This song is really fun and cheerful, it sounds like a festival!  But I do like the sitar use at the end to sort of 'calm things down' and despite the exciting nature of the track, there's something softer and more serene happening at times too.
http://youtu.be/b_a5-jx-Wwc

Breath of Fire IV - (Tons of tracks!!)
A great soundtrack that especially rocks a lot of Eastern influence very well.  Fou Lu's arc in particular made great use of the instrument as well as a few villages.
http://youtu.be/HlbYkWDrtbc - Men of War (battle theme) How often are sitars used in battle themes?  And it still sounds kinda AWESOME.
http://youtu.be/LqHdBa324RU - Maybe I'll Even Buy a Sheep (town theme)
http://youtu.be/CTBoSRIdajQ - Opening Animation theme (sans SFX!!!)

Suikoden II; Asian Music Collection - Nahala Yam Koong
This song has a ton of great energy, and omg the non-OST CDs for the Suikoden series are amazing
http://youtu.be/rN9Z_-6xOBs

Ar Tonelico 3 - Ec Tisia
This is such a refreshing track.  The beginning is beautiful, then goes into a softer buildup for the much more grand and epic finale (and contains the 3 main game themes)
http://youtu.be/b_a5-jx-Wwc

ACCORDION

Suikoden III - Stupid Ducks
What an interesting tune this is.  I love how it sort of starts up very suddenly but eases into a much more soothing tune.
http://youtu.be/HneWfB9jsHk

Dark Cloud 2 - Palm Brinks
As a former player: I promise if I ever pick up the accordion again, I'll be sure to upload this song to youtube and The 'Fan.
http://youtu.be/3z0uUVEM2Kk

Professor Layton & the Curious Village - Curtain of Night
Yeah, maybe it's more Nishiura's style that loves incorporating this instrument.  I'll be using the word 'romantic' a lot, but here the sound is much more sorrowful and poignant.
http://youtu.be/oi2PEyK_VU0

Bravely Default - Love's Vagrant (Ringabel's theme)
I love how this takes his romantic character with that use of accordion into an action theme.  And I love when it closes out the character medley's in the final boss theme
http://youtu.be/tl363Wh4ghU

Final Fantasy X - Sprouting
I always liked this track as a very romantic version of "To Zanarkand" (it certainly helps that you hear this song at sunset).

The soundtrack is best experienced in context, and I highly recommend playing the game if you have any love at all for shmups. It's free. (http://www.tatsuya-koyama.com/software/wg002_genetos_eng.html) Really, it's probably best to go into the game completely blind without even listening to the soundtrack first...

Final Fantasy VIII - Compression of Time
http://youtu.be/l75zjpDpAWs
Besides a few key standouts, I really don't like the FF8 OST that much.  But I *love* this tune.  It's so strange, mysterious, and if you had to put musical notes to what "the compression of time" might be then I like what Uematsu did with this one.  
Of course I could just be a sucker for the harp.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant
http://youtu.be/cdaSn_GxJnM - Vicious 1915
http://youtu.be/AGWVzDhDHMc - Deep in Coma
*GAWK* oh my goooood....that percussion..!!!  Not only does it work so damn well with the game's combo-based combat (nothing like beating an enemy down to some sick beats), but the vocals, the strings, organ, piano, and overall build up (1:45 getting quiet only to come back strong).  I LOVE the Shadow Hearts series battle themes for putting a huge emphasis on a great beat than a completely fluid and elegant melody -- they were truly going for something different here and it pays off.
(not to be forgotten is of course the first game's main two battle themes, the European on "Near Death Experience" is absolutely outsanding as far as rhythm and perfect for the game's dark atmosphere)


Valkyria Chronciles - Gallant Battle (acoustic ver.)
http://youtu.be/-9RE3WYa6fk?list=PL9462C6A51E80416D
Between a "piano collections" or an "acoustic" one, I'd take the latter.  Very nice tune.

(better mp3 here: http://www.killerinstinctcentral.com/killer-instinct-2gold-soundtrack/ (http://www.killerinstinctcentral.com/killer-instinct-2gold-soundtrack/))

Amazing song that singles itself out of the lot.
Probably one of the best quality song out of any fighting game.

YouTuber caught my attention on Digg.com/video today after covering a mundane iPhone ringtone that many have as default: http://digg.com/video/heavy-metal-apple-ringtones (http://digg.com/video/heavy-metal-apple-ringtones). I checked out his channel and does a couple of cool video game covers with a metal spin. I like that he shows the video game battle in the background and he's headbanging with his guitar to the battle theme, lol. Check out a few:

I gave the Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth OST a glowing review last year.  I'm playing the game now and hearing the music in the game is like seeing super clearly with a new pair of glasses.  

Anyway, this has become my favorite piece of music from the game.  It's one of the pieces I sampled in my OST review so I dug it before I dug it.  It's called "Something Eroding."   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toO4JoK-S5k

Noisy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5ina1hBr3o&index=25&list=PL258Gqv0lYXnsHiYtp1-5Iu-uqMNGYWg-)

I'm sharing this here because this song does something I don't know if I've ever heard in a VGM track before: it purposely screws up the performance in places.  It's your typical sugary-sweet and bouncy Atelier track, but the lead horn (maybe some kind of synth trumpet?) driving the melody will suddenly punctuate a measure with a completely jacked up, dissonant note.  You just have to hear it, I don't know enough music terminology to describe it.  It made me laugh, though.
Title: Re: Random VGM
Post by: Dincrest on May 03, 2016, 08:26:29 PM
I haven't played the game, so I wonder what the context for that piece is.  If I knew that, perhaps the dissonant little "blatts" would make sense.  

Anyway, these somehow became earworms for me back in the day.  The game wasn't anything great, though.

Anyway, random VGM...

I absolutely loathed the game Mana Khemia (including the soundtrack), especially this piece of music that has become a nuisance ear worm for me.  The song is "Future of Dreams" (whistle version).  At least it's better than the Chorus version.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLD8fySAj6Q

The only thing I liked about Mana Khemia was Pamela's theme:

I really enjoyed the game myself. The music is not as good outside of the game but I still liked it. I thought the boss music was decent. I can see how disliking that song could drag the game down for you. It pops up everywhere you go around the academy in some form or another.

Sega CD: Ecco soundtrack.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMFaSuMIEko&list=PLC89930BA5903B838&index=65

Probably the 1st truly great CD soundtrack, favorite is track 6 but the soundtrack is so well done that I bet everyone has a different favorite track. Not too many games have managed to capture a mood of a game like this soundtrack did. The game was probably a 6/10 on the Genesis, the CD version pushed it up to a 9/10.

Artimicia- No one said the random VGM in the Random VGM thread had to be something we liked :P.  To add some kind of discussion merit to my joking, I find that stuff I don't like sticks with me just as much because at least it made me feel some kind of strong emotion.  It's like the old saying goes: The opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy.  Even when I review games, the most difficult for me to review are the ones I'm lukewarm toward.  

Darilon- Mana Khemia is one of those games I really wanted to like, and on paper it totally seems like something in my wheelhouse, but I found most everything about it completely disagreeable to me.  It's my overused dating analogy all over again.  

Anyway, some more VGM for the thread... This is "Focus" by ChipZel from the game Super Hexagon.  The game is unspeakably evil, but the music is quite good.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJc5xqu6IP0 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJc5xqu6IP0)

An entire thread could be done on favorite MegaMan music and I'm sure several of these have been posted already, but here are some of my favorite MegaMan pieces of music.  

In no particular order:

-TopMan's stage theme from MegaMan 3 (dat into, plus it's a really complex piece with cool breakdowns): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JkNQDS-nec

-AirMan's stage theme from MegaMan 2 (somehow it just sticks with you): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhK4D3ytYMc

-CrashMan's stage theme from MegaMan 2 (the bridge at 1:04 is my favorite part): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOIjzmMZi_s

-WoodMan's stage theme from MegaMan 2 (and I love its use as a sample in the MegaRan song "Grow Up"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvAAOmoEftg

-DiveMan's stage theme from MegaMan 4 (this sounds like you have to haul ass and get this underwater mission done or you'll run out of oxygen and drown!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5oXCTDeHFE

-BubbleMan's stage theme from MegaMan 2 (it's so... buoyant.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEULEvmq7yE

I feel like the music in the Pokemon games doesn't get enough credit.  Those games have massive soundtracks that have all been consistently good.  And if you listen to them, this is not simplistic 3-chord compositions.  This is complexly composed music here. 

Even the chiptune music created for the Game Boy games, the Trainer Battle theme in Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal has more dynamics and changes in a couple of minutes than I've seen in some bands' entire albums:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbCtVIDMEAs (The lick at the 1:05 mark has been stuck in my head for years now.)

And though I didn't give an extensive treatise on the music in my Pokemon Sun review, I LOVED it.  The Team Skull themes were particularly good, especially this funky number that plays whenever you encounter them in the field: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hL3z32ZCySA

EDIT: Check out these musicians/bands playing early Pokemon tunes.  Those look really challenging to play:

Talking about Lunar in Artimicia's thread has me thinking about the Sega CD version soundtrack (as I mentioned over there). It's indeed one of my favorite video game soundtracks, and the only version of Lunar to have this music (as is my understanding).
I've already posted some tracks from the game before, but I feel I need to reiterate how much I love the normal battle theme. Never did I grow tired of it, during any playthrough. Starts out with a nice low profile and climbs as it goes. Can't ever hate on the funk-slap bass and orchestral highs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NfhrT3gQdY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NfhrT3gQdY)

EDIT: I also really enjoy the final battle theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AccXSs0bYwE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AccXSs0bYwE), but it's way too short. Meaning, it would have to repeat/reload often during the battle. Since my Sega CD was a piece of crap, it would sometimes stop reloading the track (disc would stop spinning), and I would fight in silence. Then the game wouldn't load the next scene after the battle. So, I'd sometimes have to hit the side of the Sega CD as the track was finishing to make sure it would repeat during the battle.
Nostalgia = feeling old.

I agree with this. When it comes to chiptunes, less is usually more.

I can (and do) appreciate chip tunes, but you wouldn't find me bumpin' 'em in my car, or anything. Well... except for this one album I have, which is 8-bit chip tunes mixed with metal-style drumming. Pretty cool.
I would assume a large part of the appreciation of chip tunes in general comes from age...

Catherine - Stage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGUsx4HdUyc) is buried rather deep in the game, which is a shame, since it's one of Catherine's better tracks.  (It seems it is being resurrected with some P5 DLC).

I have no idea if this was posted already, but whatever.  I've been on a bit of a nostalgia kick lately, thanks to finally getting around to reading a bunch of Robotech comics I got for a pittance at Free Comic Book Day last year.  Yes, I'm aware of the whole Robotech/Macross controversy and talked about it in the Anime/Manga journal, but that's beside the point. 

The point is that I also started revisiting music from 1970s and 1980s mecha anime and one piece of music that kept interrupting its way into my head was Towa's Battle Theme from the game Tokitowa.  Now, I know full well that the game was garbage and felt that the soundtrack was meh (especially considering it was Yuzo Koshiro), but Towa's Battle Theme was amazing and the true gem of the soundtrack.  It totally reminded me of old-school mecha anime, especially the part about 1 minute into the song.

So, [member=5361]Towns Car Marty[/member] - where do I know your voice from?

Also, that arrangement of Fragrance of Dark Coffee is an All Time Legendary VGM Great.  So happy you included it.

I wanted to get a few episodes in the chamber before I started making it available on dedicated catchers. Working on it!

You've possibly heard me having bad opinions on both Random and Retro Encounter. Glad you enjoyed my picks here!

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.

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.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=obUqktqvunM

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. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWWJBkk5C9U

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.

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. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOL0DS-j8VE

EDIT: And here's a gorgeous acoustic guitar cover of "Alone in the World" from Wild ARMs.  Man that was a good game with a great soundtrack.  <3 Michiko Naruke's music.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw9L4ykGcGU

Some favorites from VC3.  (Composer: Sakimoto).

With Pride in the Heart (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8veCGy4nok)
Are the Customers Simply Money? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuymk4KK-CU)  This plays in the equipment shop.  I like the violin around 0:42.
Calamity Raven (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF5r7uVgj5c)
A Momentary Rest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm2Enki0SVE).  The use of flutes and woodwinds here reminds me of the Cerobi Steppe.
OPEN FIRE! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYCwCvf6IjA)  This music plays while Imca blows everything up ^_^.
Signs of Unrest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K86Cbv0hqY4).  The FFT vibe is strong with this one.

Or maybe you could just listen to the whole playlist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm2Enki0SVE&list=PL016FA909658E04C9&index=1).

Random VGM?  How about the entire soundtrack to Shadow Blasters.  Shadow Blasters was a somewhat obscure side-scrolling action game for the Genesis/MegaDrive.  It was fun, though unremarkable...  except for the music!  I adored that game's music. 

I loved the Harbor stage music:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXeKWrWwrLw&index=12&list=PLTQBjsY5uwTG_TYRH2BRZO24t3IN5Ry1_

And I especially loved the Heaven stage music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md8LLWn4oRg&index=10&list=PLTQBjsY5uwTG_TYRH2BRZO24t3IN5Ry1_

Entire playlist (good quality, but songs are out of order):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DfVlHqj-IM&list=PLTQBjsY5uwTG_TYRH2BRZO24t3IN5Ry1_
