The Valis series stars long-legged, sword-swinging anime girls, and the third installment has more than one to choose from. This entry in the series also boasts a kickass soundtrack by Jun Hasebe, Hisao Inoue and Shingo Murakami. It toes the line between 1980s cheese and anime badassness, and here’s hoping […]

Back in the day, video games could rock without featuring anything close to a real guitar. It’s actually a testament to those composers’ ingenuity that they could conjure something from those sound processors that sounded unmistakably like an electric guitar. This episode is an eclectic mix of some of those […]

The music of the Kirby games is cheerful but not relentlessly so. In fact, Kirby’s swan song on the Super NES, Kirby’s Dream Land 3, has some slightly more down-tempo tracks. This quickie episode is just those: not a comprehensive look at this game, but a more moody take on […]

The third installment of Singing Mountain’s look at how VGM interacts with mainstream music focuses on the Elec Man theme from the first Mega Man game. It sounds a lot like a track by Journey, but also like likes from REM, Cheap Trick, Bon Jovi, Human League and more. What’s […]

The 16-bit era of Squaresoft RPGs helped teach a generation of gamers what this style of game could be. But as celebrated as titles like Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger were, their fans outside Japan missed out on a slew of others. This episode is a musical […]

The second installment of the VGM+pop music series looks at Eternal Champions, a 1993 entry in the canon of fighting games that was created by an all-American team of Sega employees. Eternal Champions has its own merits, but this episode is concerned solely with two tracks from this game — […]

The previous episode looked at David Wise’s music before Donkey Kong Country, but purposefully spared on the Wizards & Warriors just because this long-neglected Rare franchise had too much good music to ignore.
