Let's review a game together...
Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” Imaginary philosopher Richard Riemenschneider once said, “People who begin articles with Nietzsche quotes are the worst.” Let’s agree to meet somewhere in the middle. And with that, let’s look back at the best of Kotaku Melodic this year.
The London Philharmonic’s latest foray into video game music launched today, and it’s pretty good stuff. I haven’t found any tracks that quite rival the Tetris theme from the first album, but there are some standouts.
Rappers love Pac-Man. I mean, everyone loves Pac-Man. But this list at Spin’s website — which catalogues 50 rap songs that have sampled game music for their beats — testifies to the abiding love affair MCs have for the hungry video game icon. There have been a lot of Super Mario samples and some genuine surprises — who sampled Actraiser?! — lurk in the gallery, too. Man, the rapper Doom sampling the video game Doom is straight-up genius.
Last year, we were honoured to premiere the London Philharmonic’s album of video game music here at Kotaku. The esteemed ensemble is planning a follow-up album, and they’ve asked us to ask you to help them pick one of the songs that they’ll record. Whaddya say?
Music fans rejoice, today saw the release of a couple of melodious treats with which to massage your ear-holes.
This past Monday, I got hipped to this video by FreddieGredde, YouTube tribute-artist extraordinaire. I’ve seen a lot of videos that I kind of describe as “Guy With Instruments Playing Video Game Music” (GWIPVGM) videos — they can be great, or they can be dull. They can be as charming as Pomplamoose, or as annoying as… well, as annoying as Pomplamoose, actually.
I think we’ve all seen our fair share of “guy with instruments playing video game music” videos on YouTube.
