Welcome to our podcast dedicated to 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.
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.
