Ugh, stop twitching

http://gh.ffshrine.org/soundtracks/view-all

I don't know how long this site will last, but I now have 2.5 gigs of game music on my work machine. Admittedly it's not all great, but some of it's so great that during the best parts I can't actually do any work, all I can do is clutch my head and think about how great it is.

Some specific recommendations, assuming you're already familiar with the usual Nintendo and Squaresoft stuff that everyone seems to know about:
Deus Ex: Hong Kong Streets by Alexander Brandon.
Kid Icarus: Last Stage by Hirokazu Tanaka.
Mega Man: Bomb Man by Manami Matsumae(?)
The Lost Vikings: Just Another Day by Charles Deenen
Duck Tales: The Moon by ... who knows? Google does not help me.
Streets of Rage 3: The Poets I by Motohiro Kawashima
Ico: You Were There by Michiru Oshima
Yoshi's Island: Story Music Box by Koji Kondo
Ikaruga: Trial by Hiroshi Iuchi
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga: Bean Bean Castle by Yoko Shimomura
Katamari Damacy: Cherry Blossom Color Season by Yu Miyake
Life Force: Stage 2 by “KONAMI KUKEIHA CLUB”

I'm sure you'll thank me for not including all my favorite J-Pop from the Dance Dance Revolution series.

Yo PFister!
This is a voice from your past.

Your (pfister) email is getting bounced, can you send me a non-work email address. I'd like to shoot you a message.

Thanks.

So how do they handle music like that from Deus Ex, where it's dynamically into one one of many variations on the theme based on your situation?

I'm listening and I guess I've got the answer, which is that they just include the track that plays by default. :-)
grr

dynamically segued, grr.

You should add an option that forces me to preview it even when I'm just assuming that it's all correct.

The other variations are separate tracks.

Those links don't work. I don't know whether they're really supposed, but as it is, they don't. The Moon in Duck Tales is GREAT, check out the cover by The Advantage (www.theadvantageband.com). Also the music in the Transylvania level is very good, although too short... The most interesting bit is kind of cut short. Oh well, next time you play it, play it through and check out the music credits, that way you'll find out the composer.

Yeah, Galbadia Hotel has changed its directory structure at least once since I wrote that post, presumably to break programs like the one I wrote that download entire game soundtracks at once rather than having to click through a pageful of ads per song.

The Advantage are pretty impressive, though I couldn't find the particular song on that mess of a web page. Not that it wasn't fun trying!
