Sound of Play: 8

Post by JaySevenZero » February 4th, 2015, 3:02 pm


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 presenters: Leon Cox, Ryan Hamann and Jay Taylor.

Community contributors: Wooben, Katieee120 and Follow My Ruin.

I really liked this episode. I listened to it while driving to class, where I had a calculus test to take, and the Donkey Kong tracks seemed very fitting with my mood.
Dead Island trailer song is amazing, and I really love the flower soundtrack, finally bought it about a week ago.

A most excellent edition of SoP this one. The Metroid track took me right back to the loneliness and desolation of Brinstar etc, and the droplets of water on Samus' visor. Brilliant game.
