I think that some GameBoy compositions so richly eclipse many of Nintendo's mainstream soundtracks for contemporary titles. Kazumi Totaka and 'Hip' Tanaka surely deserve much more attention than they presently enjoy. I am convinced that Totaka arranged--with Link's Awakening--a Zelda soundtrack that trounces anything that Minegishi and his contemporaries (from which I discount Kondo) have scored. I love his work to bits.


The last ten seconds of this represent such an intense confidence. He pulls it off with aplomb. :wub:


Tanaka pulled off some fantastic work, too. This tune reminds me that the older Nintendo composers actually generated melodies in their music...as if there were lyrics that could accompany them; something you could hum along to. I think their more recent composers try too hard to create work that shifts in line with what happens in the game; this results in music that's almost monotone, and lacks any sort of tune--it's mostly just a mood, and comes across as forgettable.

Interestingly, though, I think the fact that Link's Awakening and Super Mario Land had music that was somewhat atypical of their respective franchises is what gave them something of an exoticism; I liked the fact that they felt almost atypical.

I love the music on Wipeout, always great to race too

Most of my favourite retro tracks are from SNES games, really like the old synths :wub:

Super Aleste



Darius Twin



and the best of all - Unirally



Really needs more love, great game and great music :wub:

Wouldn't be surprised if someone recreated the unirally tracks for rock band or guitar hero, would be so much fun to play :)

It's a powerful bit of music--it effectively distills into one arrangements all the emotions that were up in the air after completing such a formidable adventure. Enchanting.

I've never played this game - apparently it's crap - but the music is pretty sweet.




Someone modded the second tune into the PC version of Guitar Hero 3:
