Sound of Play: 5

Welcome to the last podcast of 2014 about our favourite videogame music – Sound of Play.

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it. Over the decades they’ve evolved from simplistic monaural beeps and bloops to full orchestral scores recorded in 7.1 surround, but from their earliest days right up to today, soundtracks have played an integral part of our memories of the games we played, and the times in our lives when we were playing them. What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourites pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.

This show’s contributors were: Leon Cox, Karl Moon and Dan Clarke

Community contributors were: Magic Joe F and Alex79uk.

Track listing for this show is as follows:

Good show this week, had no idea the Spectrum beeper could do that... (never owned one myself, I went Commodore early on and never looked back)

(I think you've listed the wrong thing for track 4 there)

I was always more partial to the C64 version of Giana Sisters myself...

No, the track is correct it is Sync - I took the mp3 from my own copy of the soundtrack.

Someone else got in ahead of you and fixed it... (it had the track 4 from episode 4 listed originally)

Thanks for playing my pick :)

Another excellent episode. I often work with film / game soundtracks on so this is a great for discovering new stuff.
