Sound of Play: 51 – The videogame music podcast

Welcome to our weekly podcast dedicated to videogame music – Sound of Play

What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourite pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years. However, it’s not just about what we like, so if you venture over to our forum at caneandrinse.com you can put forward your favourites and we’ll include a selection in the playlist for each show.

  1. Hey, Cane and Rinse! Wanted to let you know that you all rock. You rock like a boulder. Like an impenetrable mountain. The work you’re doing with your podcasts reinvigorated my love of gaming ever since I started listening about a year ago. I’ve already happily gone through all 200+ C&R episodes. This was the first Sound of Play I’ve heard, and–what do you know?–I loved it, as well. I’m pumped that there are 50 more for me to catch up on.

    You have a way of looking at games that ignores the mainstream video game news sites’ hullabaloo, which tends to contrive juvenile narratives of “this system vs. that system/this game vs that game/this developer vs that one”, which, to me, is inconsequential to what it means to be a fan of games. I look at the major sites and I just want to shout: “It’s about the GAMES, dummies!”

    I’m telling anybody interested in gaming to check you out, and I’m merrily contributing to your Patreon each month.

    From the American Midwest to the Isles, I want to say: I’m pulling for you and hope you guys are picking up steam. Keep on keeping on.


    Not a Cane and Rinse sock puppet. Just some dude.

  2. Thanks Some Dude!

    We really appreciate your kind words, your contribution and your spreading of the word.
    You clearly get what we are all about, and that makes us happy.

  3. 3S had such good music. Another fighting worth checking out for its music is Melty Blood or UNIEL (Eltnam’s theme).
