The first Singing Mountain of 2019 is also the first in a new series looking at the interactions between mainstream pop music and video game music. This episode looks and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Legend of Mana in terms of Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson, but I’m stoked to […]

Hey, remember winter? The season we’re in right now? In response to audience requests, I decided to get in one more episode about non-jolly winter music. And unlike Episode 33, I talk less on this one so you can enjoy an hour of what it would sound like to hang […]

Seasons come and go in the world of the Harvest Moon games. This episode is all about the music you hear when snow covers the landscape. It’s all peaceful, but with a twinge of sadness, because it’s the coldest time of year and presumably the worst time for a harvest. […]

Last year, I celebrated the season with a trove of icy blue tracks from wintery video game levels, with none of the mirth and jingle of most Christmastime music. This year, I intended to go cheerier… but I didn’t, and instead I’m given you more chilled-to-the-touch levels that evoke Christmas […]

It never left Japan and it’s not the best known of Square’s 16 bit-era RPG outings, but Live a Live should be notable to VGM fans at least for having a great soundtrack composed by Yoko Shimomura. It bridges the gap between her Street Fighter II phase and the work […]

Nintendo’s Smash Bros. series has become not only an altar to worship the gods of video games past but also a place to pay our respects to video game music. In this episode, I anticipate the arrival of Smash Bros. Ultimate on Friday with ten examples of Smash Bros. covers […]

Sometimes great video game music doesn’t end up in the final product, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy it. Singing Mountain celebrates its fiftieth episode with a playlist of lesser-known, lesser-heard music from famous franchises, including Super Mario Bros., Sonic, Final Fantasy, Streets of Rage, Mega Man, Ys, […]

Little Nemo: The Dream Master was a NES-era Capcom title that starred neither a robot or a gargoyle or a millionaire duck. This title was one of the tougher 8-bit platformers, but it was also one of the best composed, with a soundtrack by Junko Tamiya that features melodies that […]
