#MusicMonday: Heavy Rain – Ethan Mars’ Theme

I never played Heavy Rain. Well, that’s not entirely true. I did play some of it, just not enough to truly experience the game properly. I often gravitate to video game soundtracks, first, before I even play a game. Most likely due to my love for music and scores. Heavy Rain’s soundtrack is no slouch in that respect. It’s moving and emotional. So much so that it can leave you breathless. Ethan Mars’ theme is enough to put you in an introspective mind set. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

#MusicMonday – Super Mario 64 – Bob-Omb Battlefield – Super Soul Bros (Live at Stritch)

Super Mario 3D All-Stars was released earlier this month, and there’s a ton of catchy music in Super Mario 64. I’ve been enjoying the upbeat and catchy tunes, thanks to composer Koji Kondo, and I’m really digging this live performance of Bob-Omb Battlefield thanks to the Super Soul Bros. Check it out!

#MusicMonday – Demon’s Souls – “Character Creation Theme”

#MusicMonday returns with “Character Creation Theme” from the Demon’s Souls soundtrack. With the new hype surrounding BluePoint’s Remake of this spectacular game, I felt it appropriate to share this brooding tune. When creating your class, you’re greeted with this haunting, ethereal theme that just loops as it immediately sets the tone for foggy world you’ll be living in for awhile. It’s perfect for reading, studying, meditating, or dare I say it…folding laundry.

Enjoy!

#MusicMonday: Quake 1 Theme by Nine Inch Nails

One of my favorite computer games when I was a child was Quake. Everyone knows I was a huge Doom fan, but Quake was something different. It felt like the next generation leap to full 3D, and with it it brought actual CD-quality music thanks to Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails.

I would regularly pop the game disc into my CD player, skip track 1 (data track) and just listen to the rest of the album. The title track, heard here, is probably my favorite.

Thanks to Tyler for reminding me how awesome this soundtrack is!

#MusicMonday: Ghost Of Tsushima – Tsushima Suite “Seiiki”

#MusicMonday returns with Ghost Of Tsushima. The moment I heard this track for the first time, I knew I would fall in love with the soundtrack. It reminds me of The Last Samurai, one of my favorite movies. It encapsulates feudal Japan, and the beauty Tsushima offers. I hope this track moves you to blubbering like a baby like it did to me.

Enjoy!
