This week’s Sound of Play host is Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins), and we’re experimenting with a new format (don’t worry — it’s a “sometimes” thing, not a new weekly feature). Following the example of the Song Exploder podcast, Ryan has chosen a single song to meticulously pick apart, instrument-by-instrument. Today’s topic is Jonathan Dunn’s legendary theme (turned washing machine jingle) from the Ocean Software RoboCop game. Ryan dissects the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and Game Boy versions. And it’s all kicked off by a wonderful remix by Allister Brimble.
What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of some of our favourite pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.
Track listing for this show is as follows:
1: RoboCop by Allister Brimble – The Spectrum Works, 2015
2: Title Theme by Jonathan Dunn – RoboCop, 1988
3: Title Theme by Jonathan Dunn – RoboCop, 1988
4: Title Theme by Jonathan Dunn – RoboCop, 1989
