Shame on all of us for no one posting debatably the best Sunsoft track of all time, Outside from Fester's Quest.

This is the first level track for Drakengard, one of the few games I've played that I actually hate. I'm sure you'll note that it is trash garbage. It is trash garbage that loops a great many times over missions of repetitive combat against repetitive enemies that last forever. Exception made for a scant few instants of fleeting brilliance, the game's art direction, in terms of visuals, music and moment-to-moment interactivity, alternates between ugly, dull, and simultaneously ugly and dull.

I'm only posting this because I gotta say I'm still glad it sold enough to let Yoko Taro keep his job and proceed to make games that sound like this.

I still have a preference for...



...but if I gave it any thought, I'd probably find out my pick between the two varies by season.

Journey to Silius is hard to beat.


This track from the Gameboy Color game Star Ocean: Blue Sphere is pretty rad.

It's called Civilization Keeper and was composed by Motoi Sakuraba who composed music for a ton of games - too many to name - but among them Arcus II: Silent Symphony which is an other fave of mine when it comes to chunes.

There was an MSX game released in 2007?

In 1991 I composed this track (during the military service) for a game about "El Zorro" which was never released. If I remember correctly this was my second Game Boy track after Pop Up / Cool Ball, which was also composed during that time. Bomb Jack soundtrack for Game Boy followed this one.

Some seconds of the intro are based on the intro of another song named "Aire" by the Spanish group Mecano (loved that one!). I would change that part later, but since the song was never used it still has that part on it.
