Happy holidays everyone! Your podcast-friends here at Rhythm and Pixels celebrate the only way they know how, with great video game music! There’s surprises, presents, and Rob’s elf application to the North Pole. It’s a podcast miracle!
Snow Island – Mouryo Senki Madara – Famicom – Tappi Iwase, Miki Higashino, Hirofumi Taniguchi, Aki Hata
Castle Castellations – James Pond 2 Robocod – Genesis – Richard Joseph
This week Rob and Pernell pick tracks that would be great for your yoga class, spa weekend, or after-work decompression. We’re looking at anything that’s relaxing, atmospheric, and ambient. Please listen responsibly.
The Flutter – Megaman Legends 2 – Playstation – Makoto Tomozawa
Sleeping Village – Dragon Quest 3 – Super Nintendo – Koichi Sugiyama
Overworld – Lunar: the Silver Star – Sega CD – Noriyuki Iwadare, Hiroshi Fujioka, Isao Mizoguchi
Streets! Inns! Shopping! Towns have it all! Music for these more peaceful areas of games are often relaxing and pleasant, but it will still reflect the themes and tone of the story. There’s also talk of Muppet Babies and Suikoden on the water.
Special thanks to Remi for this week’s topic! Thanks!
