    Eternia!
    I've been doing some music for a couple of homebrew projects on the DS and I've decided to take it further by actually making an album of Game music remixes, the trouble is, I'm not sure what music I want to remix..

    I've got the Bob-Omb Battlefield, (Super Mario 64, N64, DS) music done and it sounds good, I've also done World 4-1 of Super Mario Land, (GBC) plus the Overworld theme from the Legend of Zelda games. I was thinking of doing the Boss music from Final Fantasy VIII too...

    Basically, I want to know everyone's favourite game music so I can make something full of tunes people recognize. I'm also not going to charge for the album, it's purely for you good folk of the 'Temp for being such a good bunch!

    I'm looking for 9 or 10 more great game tunes to remix for this album to be complete so post your favourites and hopefully, in a little while, there will be a GBAtemp-dedicated album!!..

    So far...
    Bob-Omb Battlefield,
    SML 4-1,
    Zelda Overworld,
    FFVIII Boss


    Any music, from any genre, from any gaming platform. Just as long as it's popular, it will be considered.

    Nice one! [​IMG]

    That's good vidya games music.

    Most of the No More Heroes and Metal Gear Solid soundtracks are pretty good too.

    What you mean by another one?

    Weird how you mention GS: Lost Age credits music. I completed that for the 1st time on Wednesday and loved the credits music... [​IMG]

    EDIT: I'm all over that No More Heroes music! The vocal might be troublesome but other than that, perfect. MGS games do have very good music too, something for me to do later..

    I really like the music from Terranigma on SNES, also various tracks from Castlevania SotN and then of course there is the amazing To Zanarkand from FFX.

    Looking now. Haven't played Terranigma and not keen on Castlevania games tho. 'To Zanarkand' is the likely choice, may even substitute FFVIII boss music for it..

    That reminds me of Morris Dancers! "Hey Nonny Nonny" and all that shite! [​IMG]

    Loving Donkey Kong country music too and I have sheet music for that so might find a DKC tune or two to do as well.

    You are oh so epicly wrong....but each to their own. Dream of a Shore is one of my favourite arrangements ever, especially Gutzalpus' OCRemix version.

    I most likely am wrong but I'm trying to stay away from 'arranged' pieces as they don't make for particularly good remixes. I probably should have said this in my original post, sorry.

    Nearly missed your post... Nice music. I like it a lot..

    I've gotta fly out now but I like all your suggestions and I'll check back in a while.

    Cheers, I can get on with a few of those tunes later..

    I'm a bit surprised no one's mentioned Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. That game had some quality music; it represents my childhood with video games.

    Game music is mostly memorable by playing the game. not exactly by just listening it.

    Makes little sense to me, enjoying a game music without playing it's game. (Except of course for those such as the music posted here from Alan Wake, god damn that music reminds me of old school rock)
