Sound of Play: 32 – The videogame music podcast

Welcome to our first Sound of Play of 2016

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it.

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.

Of course 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 start to include a selection in the playlist for each show.

This show’s presenters were: Leon Cox (@ratsoalbion) and Tom Quillfeldt (@TQuillfeldt)

  1. Having just gone through the entire list of songs presented by this podcast, and I have to question why there are zero songs mentioned from a game series that has one of the best soundtracks ever composed.

    Jet Set Radio (and future)

    From the Poppy hip hop flavours of “Let Mom sleep” (complete with Samples from the Tony Hancock episode “the radio ham”),
    The funky groove of “Humming the Bassline”,
    The Electro Rock title music of future in “Concept of love”,
    The soulful funky ballad of “Aisle 10”.

    And countless others, I find it a travesty that at least one track from this series has not been highlighted.

    And if all of that passes you by, then at least Put up King of Speed from Daytona USA, as everyone knows, everything is better with a rolling start.

  2. Hi Terry. Actually we featured Sweet Soul Brother by Hideki Nagamura on the very first Sound of Play: http://caneandrinse.com/sound-play/
