Happy Valentine's Day!

I thought I could use this day to share a track with a name appropriate for the holiday. So here it is straight from his album "Mirror", here is DJ Okawari's "Luv Letter"!

What a lovely track it is! I hope you lovers enjoy it. However, I must say that I never did see this as a love track before despite its given name. I actually felt like it would be good for end credit sequences you see in certain anime. As well as that, I also feel as though it is a theme of a strong bond between friends who set out for a mythical journey across the globe. I can see them walking down the road during the twilight and dawn, together side by side like true bros.

Whichever way you wish to see, one feeling is usually always present: bonds between people of all kinds. That certainly makes itself known throughout the track. So I hope you all, lovers, friends, family, and colleagues enjoy this day as well as this track!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Geoff & Tim Follin - Spider-Man & The X-Men in Arcade's Revenge!

Hello again everyone! Today I am going to not share a single track. Instead, I am going to give you a number of tracks that originate from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) game Spider-Man & The X-Men in Arcade's Revenge!

Now I know that when we think of SNES music, or most VG music in general, we tend to think of famous Eastern Composers such as Kondo, Uematsu, and Mitsuda and the like. However, what I am about to show you today is the work of two brothers, Geoff & Tim Follin, who hail from England. They were very famous Western Composers in their time and are still revered for their tracks today!

Arcade's Revenge may not have been the best game out there, but its music is truly something to compete
with! You can tell so just by turning the game on.

Yes, that is the music they used for the title screen. It always gets you revved up for something good, though it sadly did not deliver.

Another recognizable track is the stage theme of Spider-Man, which includes some sounds that are synonymous with the Web Slinger.

It has very urban-esque vibe, delivers a heroic tune, and has that edgy sound that every Spider-Man theme needs! It was one of Spider-Man's best iconic tracks!

And here is one that is my personal favorite, the stage theme of Gambit! Here is fun fact for you: I play this track whenever I get myself into a Domino Game. Really get's my mind in the mood and has been one of my best "musical companions". You can also say it fits well for Dominoes, as the game sometimes calls for gambits.

These were really amazing tacks and I would highly recommend you to check out the others as well! Some of them have a serious tone (like Storm's theme), while others have a whimsical feel (Cyclops's theme). But ALL of them are AMAZING, nonetheless! Go check them out!

Shinji Hosoe - Airman Techno Remix!

Hello, all!

I have a new track to show you! As you all should know, I love myself some video game soundtracks! I also love the arrangements and remixes by both fans and owners of the franchise! Here is one straight from the 20th Anniversary Mega Man 1-6 Techno CD called "Airman mix"! This is a remix of one of Mega Man's most popular tracks from the main series.

Composed by Shinji Hosoe, this track always take me to what  seems like another world. You could even hear it within the sounds that start around the 1:05 mark. This piece really makes me feel as if I'm flying through the clouds at high speeds, which is fitting for Airman's Stage!

Want the Soundtrack? Then you can order it here!

EDIT: Here is the original for you all as well! Enjoy!

If you have any suggestions on what you'd like to hear on this blog, comment! After listening to this, I'm really looking forward to some "otherworldy-like" track suggestions from you guys! It's one of my favorite types of music! Please, I'd love to hear them!

Shin-ski - Polaris!

Late Night Post!

Here's a little something I found that you might enjoy.

It's called "Polaris" by Shin-ski and and can be found in his Planetarium album! It's a must listen, especially during cool or cold nights or nights in general! Makes me want to look up at the sky during those twilight hours when the night starts to settle in. You know, when the sky has that odd mix of yellows, oranges, reds, blacks, and blues. Just awe-inspiring. It's one of those tunes that for some reason just gets you to relax and start thinking, you know?

I'm going to getting into the suggestions that have been made to me before, so you might expect a bit of difference to what you have already listened to here so far.

Have any suggestions for me? I'll go for pretty much everything! From Rock to Techno to Jazz to Orchestral to Hip Hop to Soundtracks/OSTs (movies, television, anime, videogames of all kinds) to Fan Compositions and to much, much more! I can guarantee you that I have at least five of each genre I have listed so far, and my current player has 896 tracks on it! Leave your suggestion in the Comment  Section and I'll scour the net and bring it here!

Also I have a new Twitter guys! Go on ahead and check it out!

Go on, check it! Make sure to follow it so you can find out about all of my latest updates here on my blog!

I Stand Once Again!

Hello everyone!

I apologize for not getting to you as quickly as I wanted to. Long story short: Fell ill while visiting family. Said Family highly germaphobic. Wouldn't let me touch almost ANYTHING. Hah, I still love them though.

Now back to business. Here's a track I found called "Sincerely", off of the Samurai Champloo Soundtrack, composed by Tsutchie.

Now I know that there is a guy (or two) that I could have mentioned when it comes to Samurai Champloo, but I felt that would have been a cheap move. Don't worry though, you'll get to see them both in my future posts for sure.

Have any suggestions on tracks I should search for that you'd like to see here? Yes? Then post a comment and I'll do my absolute best to get it on here for you!I love finding out about new stuff!I wouldn't be the Sound Scourer if I didn't!
