When it comes to telling a story, songs and video games can be very similar. They can both be incredibly emotional, and tone setting. They go hand in hand in building a world and with adding lyrics to specific songs in game, can add another layer of immersion and mood setting. These 10 songs do an incredible of just that. If you want to see more video game lists, perhaps check out list #10.
So lately FamilyJules, a popular YouTube video game cover musician fronted a masterful collaboration with 70 YouTube artists for a massive Mario medley. You can find the link to the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS2-v6nqYQg
It was an example of a fantastic community piece that represented all kinds of musical styles and talents and spread across the thing that binds them all together, playing music from a timeless franchise. Feats like that video are only possible when a community is as supportive, collaborative, and encouraging and this one. I’m proud to have recognized over half of the collaborators for this project before it began.
Apparition – Troy Baker
Vibes: Warm up, Nirvana intro with a sax chorus??, montage-y, an air of pop
Not sure why but the main composer of Final Fantasy music was a related artist of Troy Baker in my Spotify..
Tapioca – Slime Girls
Vibes: Fun bubbly light, happy, Mario Kart at times, Ooblets
I’m throwing in a vimeo as opposed to the usual Soundcloud links this time. I just think this animation is so beautiful.
No theme this time! Just happy to share 10 more sweet songs.
Odyssée – Anomalie
Vibes: Haywyre-like, Lush Harmonics, Vibrant and all over the place
As the year of 2017 begins to wind up this month, I felt it would be a worthwhile opportunity to express my admiration for the stacked games of 2017, especially this year’s incredible soundtracks. While surely there are plenty more games to come before the year is out, I think this solid group of 10 fit just fine for me.
A.I. – Raizer
Genre: Electronic Rock, Drumstep
Vibes: Pendulum, Angsty, Slightly Industrial, Voicians-like
Dusk. – Jinsang
Genre: Chill Hip-Hop / Lo-fi
Vibes: Miyazaki, Rain, Mellow, Somewhat Jazzy
Cartoon shows have some of the most catchy and nostalgic jams out there. Seeing how I don’t have much room to share my appreciation for these songs during my current jam and video game OST bits, I felt I’d start a new segment.
