Grandia OST - Complete VictoryGrandia II Victory FRESHGrandia Xtreme: Battle Victory ThemeGame Music You Can't Find Elsewhere: Grandia 3 - Perfect Victory
Did anyone else notice that this theme is just an upbeat arrangement of the melodic fragment from the main theme
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
. 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)
These beats are also FRESH
And here's not a Kingdom Hearts tune, absolutely not: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ckxy-i7Dc5U
