Yes, they are quite Kirby tunes, aren't they? They'd slot perfectly into Planet Robobot, for example. Don't know if that's worrying or not.

And AA6's tunes are almost all splendid. Uendo's theme is my own personal favourite of mine - reminds me of Legend of the Mystical Ninja very hard indeed, which is a good thing. Thumbs Up!

I might try my hand at one of these new-fangled music 'time periods' in the near future for Paper Mario: Color Splash, if y'all will have me. Grin

Thanks for the feedback on my last week, Zero - I do appreciate it. Thumbs Up! A friend and I have taken to singing Uendo's theme at each other whenever we meet up. It's good stuff.

And yes, please do! At some point I'll do a period for Chase CCI, but probably not during November. The best part of Sticker Star was the soundtrack, so I have high hopes for this. Smile

I feel like this is worth reposting today. I might even try to add to it.

See, I didn't mind this one. I think it works because the original track doesn't have a lot to it - once acapella hits a track with percussion, other instruments... that's when I turn off.

I checked back in the thread - I don't think I posted about that week...? Unless I'm blind, which I could be.

Let's just take it as a defiant act of tolerance in our post-Trump era.

Oh, it's definitely happened before because I don't like most of his stuff - I'll try for ten to twenty seconds but most of it does not click with me. The SMB2 cover was one of the rare few I've enjoyed.

I hope Yooka gets ported to the Switch as that would be a ideal game to play on the go.

They both are! Which is basically the dream team, short of getting Mahito Yokota on board as well. Here's one of Kirkhope's works.

Ooooh, nice! It's crazy that such a dream team of old Rare talent has come together like this to make what the fans want while actual Rare are fannying about on their weird pirate MMO.

ALERT!

ALERT!

ONE WEEK UNTIL POKéMON SUN AND MOON!


Let's have some fun and, over the next six days, explore the great tunez of the existing six generations of Pokémon games.

Drunka's Music Festival 2016: Pokémonathonatronamonatron!
Day one: FIRST GENERATION

Pokémon Red, Pokémon Green, Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Yellow, Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon Pinball
I'm gonna share my five favourite tunes from this period and it'd be swell if y'all could join in and share someof yours.

5: Blue Field
Pokémon Pinball
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Pokemon_Pinball_-_1999_-_Nintendo1
This is the only piece of music I can really remember from Pokémon Pinball, but I think that's just because it is more or less the only music you here in Pokémon Pinball. Still, it is a nice, jaunty little tune that suits the game well, and it never irritated me in my many hours with the game as a nipper.
Here it is on piano. I can picture an old silent movie as I hear this, for some reason.

4: Kid's Club
Pokémon Stadium
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Pokemon-Stadium-Rock-Harden-1437575818.gif?quality=
Like most of the music in Pokémon Stadium, this is essentially just a remix of a piece of music from Red and Blue. On the other hand, it is a really nice one and it holds a preposterous amount of nostalgia value for me. The minigames in the Kid's Corner ate up way more of my time than they deserved to whenever I would go to friends' houses to play N64 as a kid.
Piano. Technically the Game Corner music, but the same tune.

3: Report
Pokémon Snap
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Pokemon-Snap-3
This is the music that plays as Professor Oak passes judgement on your photography. It doesn't make the scene tense or anything, instead it creates an atmosphere of admiring an appreciating some art. Made me feel like I'd done a good job, like a lil' Attenborough.
I couldn't find a cover of this track, but here's a great guitar medley of Pokémon Snap music.

2: Opening
Pokémon Red
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Th?id=OIP
Obviously, I had to include this one. The original, the classic, this has gone through remix and reimagining after remix and reimagining but it remains unmistakably the Pokémon Theme. It even crops up in the likes of the animé and Smash Bros. An epic, uproarious, triumphant tune that, for me, is up there with the Zelda and Mario themese. Oh yes.
Super Soul Bros.
Irritatingly talented musical children.

1: Lavender Town
Pokémon Blue
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Hqdefault
Creepy. Atmospheric. Chilling, even. At every opportunity I seem to bring this up, but it really is one of the most effective pieces of music you'll ever hear. As a child, I was too scared to even listen to this music when I was alone. Imagine that, a Game Boy producing music I couldn't bare to turn up. Remarkable. Pale
Ocarina!
Reorchestrated!
Cello!
Just for Jay!

Obviously, there's so much more to choose from- every track in Red and Blue is a classic to our generation. But I had to leave some for y'all, and I didn't want to lock myself into picking any more than five for six days in a row. I'll see you on Friday for The Second Generation To play you out, our (obvious) non-gaming song of the day!

Great idea! Thumbs Up! I'll have to give this some thought.  Expect an update, of some size or other, later in the day.

Okay here's my top five, quickly before bed:

Pokémon TCG Battle - An underplayed and underappreciated game and tune. One of the best battle themes in the generation.

RBY Bike - A chirpy classic.

Stadium Gym Leader Theme - Gymminy Gym Gym luuuuuurves the battles! Better on the N64.

RBY Route 3 - GET READY FOR AN ADVENTURE! And two remixes: Smooth McGroove and the HGSS mistake.

(Here's where Kid's Club would go if Drunka hadn't done it first. That's a nostalgic piece of brilliance.)

Pokémon Snap Valley is my favourite gen. 1 piece. It's like a chibi version of Hidden Village, it is! Cracking.

Huh. That was a fun track, and easy to groove to but it didn't scream "battle" to me.

Hard to argue with that one. I remember disliking it as a kid, but only because I had to choose between moving fast or appreciating the music of wherever I was.
Quote :
Stadium Gym Leader Theme
Oh my god, those N64 guitars! Those are some hot licks.

Route 3 is a great piece, and does indeed capture that spirit of adventure. That said, for my money, it doesn't actually suit Mr. McGroove too well. Here's a nice Violin version and a guitar and violin mix.

Pokémon Snap Valley
That is a good'n. Can't believe I forgot this when I was picking a Snap track actually. Combine it with one I bring up tomorrow, and you're halfway to a great cowboy film.

ALERT!

ALERT!

FIVE DAYS UNTIL POKéMON SUN AND MOON!

Drunka's Music Festival 2016: Pokémonathonatronamonatron!
Day two: SECOND GENERATION

Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver, Pokémon Crystal, Pokémon Stadium 2, Pokémon Puzzle League, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge, Pokémon Mini

I don't think I was ever as excited for a game as I was for Pokémon Silver. Like every kid, I played Blue to death, watched the anime, collected toys and cards. I went even further, buying and reading every magazine that came out. Me today, the videogames hobbyist with an ear to the ground, started with my anticipation of the second Pokémon generation.

This was a different time. The idea of "more Pokémon" started out as a ridiculous concept, like a third Mario brother. Then there was Togepi, and "pikablu", and the rumour mill went into overdrive. Every new morsel of information and fuzzy screenshot blew my mind. Eventually, I went to the game shop and my nan bought it for me. I had the box in my hand! I just had to . . . sit in the barber's reading the box, then sit and have my hair cut, then go home and have tea then FINALLY I could play a brand new Pokémon.

16 badges, 251 Pokémon, a huge world, loads of mysteries . . . I wouldn't be surprised if this was my most-played game of all time. I'm gonna share my five favourite tunes from this period and it'd be swell if y'all could join in and share some of yours.

5: Goldenrod
Pokémon Silver
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Hqdefault
To kick things off, just a pleasant little city theme. I don't why, but this is the one that really sticks in my memory. Maybe it's simply the fact that the player spends so much time here, or maybe it's the genuine pleasantness.
A nice piano version.

4: Ruins of Alph
Pokémon Gold
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 18b0ce12d1ea1282565a6d18d9b0d326fc3617e84f0cc266fe222d49daffa740_1
You'll recall from last week how I like the slightly creepier side of Pokémon and its music, thoughLavender Town itself has mellowed out a bit. This isn't quite up there with that, but the mysteries of Alph and the Unown were a big draw to young Drunkalilly. Outside of the third film, the Unown didn't really amount to much but the love of investigating obtuse game lore, be it here or with glitches like Missingno, was obviously formative for me. *cough* *cough*
A nice piano and violin rendition and a guitar version that kind of fails on the creepy.

3: Minigame
Pokémon Stadium 2
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Pichu
I'm including this one purely for nostalgia. I spent even more time on these minigames than the ones in the original Pokémon Stadium. I liked the idea, even though it changed nothing, of playing with "my" Pokémon. If the graphics of modern main series games have rendered Stadium titles obsolete, maybe we could get "Pokémon Party" instead?

2: Challenge
Pokémon Puzzle League
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Latest?cb=20061204033750&path-prefix=en
Pokémon Puzzles League and Challenge had weird soundtracks. The latter used chirpier remixes of tracks from the main series games. The former used Midis of tunes from the anime, like this cover of the theme that sounds like a ringtone from the mid-2000s. It does, however, mean that I can use this great track in the context of this thread! Even if it doesn't actually get used as much as I remember, I associate this track with all Ash and Co's coolest moments. I wish I could find its name from the anime OST so I could look for some cover versions.

1: Rival's Theme
Pokémon Crystal
Official Nintendo Consoles Music Thread (Thanks for Listening!) - Page 34 Tumblr_m6vnk4F6Ek1rtiihpo1_500
For my money, Silver is the best rival. I like the Red and Blue dynamic as well, but that felt fairly typical. Silver was a character I started out strongly disliking and eventually grew to like. His character arc was well done, the revelations about him in HG/SS were satisfying and it was actually a bit of a shock when he wasn't the League Champion. Subsequent rivals have been too friendly for me.

I know bores will argue that the mechanics of the game don't reinforce the message of loving your Pokémon and not treating them like slaves. I'd argue that within the singleplayer, they do: that's why the player can win by grinding with anyone! As for the multiplayer and the metagame and all that, People who can play Pokémon like that baffle me. Heartless, alien robots.

Anyway: his theme. Silver's theme has a swagger to it, a danger. He sounds like a cool ass dude when he struts over spoiling for a fight.
The version from the Pokèmon Generations anime is great. Those strings at the start make it sound like a showdown from a classic Western.
And in the opposite direction, the version from the main anime.
The old classic: A Piano cover.

I'll see you on Saturday for The Third Generation! To play you out, our non-gaming song of the day!
