Welcome to my Retro Game Music blog. As an avid game geek and music nerd, I decided to start a very simple blog about what I'm passionate about: Classic video game tunes. Put on some headphones and relax.

Request

Someone mentioned I should get some Donkey Kong Country on here. That, my good man, sounds like a great idea. My last post, Icefire Mountain, was composed by David Wise of classic Rare. And he is, without a ghost of a doubt, my favorite composer. He did work on a lot of memorable games, including DKC. And a lot of people would probably agree that DKC2 was the best of the series, music-wise or not. And here's my personal favorite:



The part right at the 0:36 mark gets me every time. Just so good.

But hey! As an added bonus, here's another boss theme from the first game: Gankplank Galleon. This is definitely one of my favorite SNES tracks out there, and even one of the first songs I learned to play on bass. Nifty?


I've always had plans of covering Gangplank Galleon, actually. A kind of Punk Rock cover, but that will have to wait until my equipment is ready for recording ANYTHING.
