Yes, I love the vocal version from the Wii U Smash Bros. 

 

Ever since Brawl, a lot of the arrangements were more wide than deep, and many suck because of it. But that arranger consistently turned out damn near definitive versions of every tune they touched.

Also, I've recently been listening to some VGM from my childhood and it's making me tear up!

 

 

and this is my oldest musical memory from the GameBoy game 'Solar Striker' which I played when I was 5/6 years old!

The game over music is so sad.

For you @Jay if you haven't seen these yet

 

 

 

 

Thanks, @Disco Stu!  I watched these and enjoyed them very much!  

 

I noticed that the White Lady music and White Palace music was the same theme of course, but hadn't noticed that Hornet's theme builds of that theme, which of course makes total sense.  In general the amount of storytelling Larkin put into the music which is almost entirely location themes and boss themes is pretty damn impressive.  I've been listening to this score almost daily for weeks now

8-Bit Music Theory is an excellent channel. One of the only YouTubers I've subscribed to.

 

What other videos from this guy would you recommend strongly?

Any of the Zelda ones are a good place to start. He really gets under the hood of western music theory though so they can be a bit bewildering unless you've had some training/understanding.

Grant Kirkhope confirmed on Twitter he did the music in the Banjo Kazooie Smash reveal trailer

8-bit Music Theory is a great channel! I think it offers something of value, whether you're fluent in theory or not - as he demonstrates the topics he talks about through ample music examples, and all the notation snippets are played back, so you can just listen to get familiar with them.

Recently I really liked the "Mount Wario" video, which demonstrates a variety of techniques used in one track to sync it up with the gameplay in different ways.

I'm not overly obsessed with Zelda music. But, I haven't heard this in years and I started lying down on my bed... and these voices came from nowhere in my head!

The Zero-G samples have featured in so many video game soundtracks, it's almost like they were made for games! What's unfortunate is people see the word "sample" and think the composer is lazy and not fully responsible for the music they enjoyed. I remember finding a Silent Hill forum where they were tracking down all the samples Akira Yamaoka used for the series, and some people were saying, "Man, I lost some respect for Yamaoka now"...I guess it's like the initial feeling of seeing orchestrators credited alongside John Williams.

The woozy delayed percussion is the secret sauce of that cue anyway.  The weird vocals are just icing.

 

Couple that with the E to F lydian pads  tying into Saria's/Lost Woods theme, and you got one of Kondo's best Zelda dungeon tracks! Never to surpass...the one.

Unlikely to have been heard by many here I'd have thought, but I love how swashbucklingly legit this cue is:

Haven't been a big fan of the Battlefield scores over the years, but 1 did stand out as more orchestral than the bass-ridden underscore of stuff like 3 and 4. Did you ever play the War Stories campaign?

 

It has taken nearly a year, but Woody Jackson's Red Dead Redemption 2 will finally see a release on Friday.

Cool! I never ended up telling you I checked out the GTA V music on your recommendation. Some really solid stuff!
