Galbadia Hotel: A Video Game Music & Media Resource (http://gh.ffshrine.org/)

They have TONS of stuff there.

There's a band called The Advantage that does covers of video game songs. You should check them out.

How is The Advantage so popular all of a sudden? I always lumped them in with the millions of other bands who do the same thing and always thought of them (and the other bands) as my little secret, but all of a sudden I'm hearing people mention them at parties and shit. Have they been mentioned in magazines or something recently?

No video game music will ever beat the Sonic 2 Mystic Cave theme.

The Sonic 2 Chemical Plant theme was definitely superior as far as straight up awesomeness goes. In terms of just fitting themes for the level though, the Mystic Cave theme reigns supreme.

I don't know - the Plant theme was pretty good (only as awesome as most Sonic music), but as soon as the Mystic Cave theme came on, I KNEW I loved Sonic and would never stop.

Balamb > Galbadia in terms of music. Just thought I'd point that out.

And I always hear one or two songs from all the bands that I like, but generally most stuff is boring. I like remixes of real songs the best, not just the sounds thrown together. If anyone can recommend a group that does mostly that I'd be interested.

The Bubble Bobble theme!

My thoughts exactly. Epic.

There's a sweet CD out right now of 8 bit covers of Kraftwerk songs.

The Balamb and Galbadia Garden themes was some of the worst music in Final Fantasy ever. Saying that though FFVIII had some of the best FF music aswel.
Moving on, The Minibosses are a band that do video game covers, Castlevania to Metriod to F-Zero.
Check them out.

Sonic 2 had a hell of a lot of awesomeness indeed. I downloaded an emulator and rom for the music alone (and the fact it's one of the first games I ever played, nostalgia and all that shit.)

The Minibosses are my favorites as far as instrument-driven video game covers go. They're harder than most, but they choose better themes, usually.

I'm more of a Black Mages fan myself, but you really have to be a Final Fantasy nerd to like them much.

Ricky, would you send me Minibosses stuff ?

(of course if you don't I'll get it off LimeWire, but I'm just looking for the easiest way.)

I'd be happy to send you some Minibosses stuff; I'll probably upload some either tonight or tomorrow.

What kind of games do they do?

And mrconeman, I disagree very strongly with the Balamb/Galbadia thing. They fit the area and mood perfectly. Although I like Liberi Fatale and the Balamb TOWN theme more than both.

Black Mages are good, though, I agree on that.

I dunno, theres nothing particularly wrong with those two tracks, I've just begun to despise them, Balamb Garden theme especially, its a theme you hear WAY too much during the game, and I've had that game for like 7/8 years, it gets old quick.
Though the Balamb town theme I love, breezy its called, basic chord stuff, but its very much perfect, it just makes me think of the sea-side. Which is what Balamb is.

Respect!

mrconeman and AAE, I'm feeling lazy, but I will upload some Minibosses stuff eventually. For now, y'all should check out their MySpace and official website for mp3 samples.

I'm loving the Ninja Gaiden theme.

Which reminds me: Stage 2-1 of the original Ninja Gaiden on NES? Fucking masterpiece. Stage 1-1 and 4-2 as well.

The ultimate game song has got to be Donkey Kong on SNES in the first couple of levels.. It begins after about 2 minutes I think..
