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.

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.

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!

It's been an intimidating prospect, to return to the world of Celeste for one more outing. The original soundtrack releases saw so much love from thousands of people, and so it seemed like an impossible task to follow it up with something new. It was only through creating something different, and adding to the existing sound of the game, that I felt comfortable telling one more story for these characters and world.

Celeste opened doors for me that I've already stepped through, and my professional life is wholly different as a result. There's no real denying that it's created change for everything that is yet to come for me, and so it only made sense that I'd conclude Celeste by changing it, too. The soundtrack to Farewell might be off-putting on first listen, and I don't know if people will like it less, as much, or more than what I wrote first. It's impossible to live up to high expectations, so I did what I always do: try to stay true to what kind of story I want to express, and what emotions that brings out. I hope that worked.

Red Dead 2's official OST album by Woody Jackson and others was released a few weeks ago, but just today I could take a listen at it.

 

 

On the game, the music works very well, creating the atmosphere and the ambience of the story and of the world. Even when you're just riding your horse through the map (and you do that A LOT on the game), Jackson's music helps with the mood, much like those different radio stations that you've listened on car on the Grand Theft Auto series.

 

This OST focuses primarily on the score for some of the most important story missions. It's a mix between Ennio Morricone classic western spaghetti stuff with the more modern, harsh and dark take on typical Americana music from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. So, the album may be a bit challenging to listen, specially if you haven't played the game, but there's some genuinely thrilling action material on tracks like "Red Dead Redemption" and "American Venom", and "The Wheel" (a mission that you play right after the game's saddest moment) is very touching.

Been enjoying Jake Kaufman's score to SHANTAE AND THE PIRATE'S CURSE this week!  He assembled an album and put it up on his Bandcamp, where you can pay him any amount you choose for a lossless copy, or choose $0 and download for free

His best! I won't post any tracks in case there were certain ones you were avoiding, but what I will say is that I love how there are the fun dance tracks, but also some surprisingly emotionally dense music from Kaufman that add a good amount of resonance to the game's affairs.

 

What are some of your favorite tracks so far?

Haven't played it yet, tried to get the first game when it was on sale in the Switch eShop but missed the sale by a day.  I'll be picking it up as soon as it goes on sale again, looks great
