Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game’s manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
No, this isn’t the last episode of the podcast, but with all these ending themes you just might not be so sure. This episode features songs with real emotion, sadness, and even humor. No really, stick around for the bonus round, it gets real funny real fast!
What a weekend! Rob and Pernell present the show to a live audience at Too Many Games! Too Many Games is a 3 day long classic video game convention featuring panels, concerts, and a huge arcade. Enjoy the fun!
This week you get a very excited discussion about golf games, from a very sleepy Rob and very excited Pernell. Golf game music is chill, jazzy, cheesy, so many good things! They also discuss the merits of VR, and the musical genius of Arnold Palmer. And I for one welcome our robot golfing overlords…
This is a nice relaxing episode, one with nothing to worry about. There are no mistakes, only happy VGM accidents. Joining us on the show is Matt Waldron from the Youtube channel Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some excellent Splatoon tunes, and great stories about playing Kirby with his daughter.
This week’s topic is listener suggested, because “sad robots” sounds cool. Robots have such a hard time in video games. Often they’re tortured, and forced to fight their family, even their own creators.
Rob and Pernell throw out their comfortable themed podcast format, and dive into the dangerous world of zero-theme for a second time. But this time, it’s personal.
Rob and Pernell are back together in the studio, and ready to rock this podcast! This week’s topic is “Memories”, meaning anything that triggers specific memories for us, personal or gaming related. So this one gets a little heavy on the nostalgia. Pernell gets nostalgic for the old east coast Bemani scene, and Rob gets nostalgic for old audio formats.
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!
Boo! It’s that time of the year to thinking about spooky-scary things. Things like ghosts and goblins, draculas, wolfmen, and mad-mad-mad-mad-scientists! Let Rob and Pernell be your guides into the haunted house of video game music! Happy Halloween everyone!
Internet! Are you ready to ROCK! What started as an episode of great guitar riffs, turned into general rock music found in video games. As usual Rob digs into the classic 8 and 16 bit generations, and Pernell shares some of his favorite Falcom Sound Team tunes. Let’s jam!
This week your hosts listen to music from sky and air themed stages. These are parts of games that are not entirely about the sky, but these sections are in the clouds. Pernell tries to get his head around the realities of Little Nemo, and Rob channels his inner 90s RnB singer in what might be his favorite track of the year.
Are you lost? Not sure where the next is? Let Pernell, THE HUMAN GPS, help you to your next destination! World map, overworld map, all the maps, it’s map music. We find that our picks compliment each other in their happiness, friendliness, and then darkness. These maps get dark yo.
Rob and Pernell choose great video game music RNG style this week, but not really. This week it’s all about picking those tracks that just haven’t fit in other topics. These are the tracks they’ve been sitting on, waiting for them to hatch into the perfect podcast. This is that podcast! Also there’s a huge tangent about Back To The Future 2 for some reason, so look out for that 🙂
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.
Marvel games, super-80s colors, and adaptations of R-rated movies. That’s right, this week we’re listening to the sounds of composer Tim Follin!
Gears, robots, machinery! (machina yah?) It’s machine music for mechanical stages in video games! There’s singing! Dancing! Rob mentions Turbo Teen! Pernell pitches the Back To The Future reboot with Yuzo Koshiro instead of Chuck Berry! It’s a good time.
Rob and Pernell are here to MELT YOUR FACES OFF! But they have to act quickly before they themselves melt into a puddle of video-game-music-goo. This summer we continue celebrating the changing of seasons with music for fire levels! We’re talking all things lava pits, flame throwers, and fire type Pokemon. Also, the air conditioning broke just before recording this episode, so enjoy it while it’s HOT!
We have got a great show for you this week, it’s a full episode of special introductions to your favorite games! Rob and Pernell introduce each other, and then describe the final season of Family Matters that was never aired. There’s also a special musical treat for you at the very end of the show. Sometimes we end up recording very late, and things start getting a little too much like Little Nemo’s dream world than we’d like.

Rabbit season! Duck season! Video game music season. Rob and Pernell dig into some great tunes from games about Looney Tunes! Pernell does some calisthenics, and Rob can’t stop talking about the amazing music of Alberto Jose “get-up-and-jam” Gonzalez.
Seriously though, don’t sleep on this one, there rae some amazing musical gems covered in this week’s episode.
