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!
