I just cleared Shovel Night last night. It’s a pretty neat modern Mega Man, check it out.

Music’s mostly by virt (Jake Kaufman), who’s one of the best in the business, so the soundtrack’s pretty great. My favorite from the game is probably the Treasure Knight boss theme, which is based on the stage theme “A Thousand Leagues Below (Iron Whale)” by legend Manami Matsumae.

It’s been a little while since I posted a Meine Meinung video here, but they arranged my favorite song from Dragon Quest IV, the main battle theme, so I’m kind of obligated to share this one.

In this medley we’ve got:

  1. "Interlude" (0:00–0:29)
  2. "Battle for the Glory ~ Deathfight" (0:29–2:54)
  3. "In a Town" (2:54–4:20)
  4. "Casino Rag" (4:20–7:05)
  5. "Medium Fanfare" (7:05–7:24)

I love how not only do they get the weird time switches at the battle theme’s climax correct (at 1:18 here, yes it’s like that on the NES and it rules), but afterward they stay in 7/8 and proceed to radically solo over that.

Original soundtrack by Koichi Sugiyama.

Someone finally got around to uploading my favorite song from Knaster’s album No.3, “Kingdom,” so I can finally post it. That’s cool.

This song was featured in Nifflas’s game The Great Work. I’m extremely fond of the clever way it was used in the game to subtly signal a non-obvious mode switch.

Yesterday I got back from a quick trip to San Francisco, during which Colin and I attended a lovely wedding in the Presidio. As the recessional song, the couple walked off to “Katamari on the Swing” from We Love Katamari, because Colin and I know a whole bunch of nerds.

Sung by Shigeru Matsuzaki, with music composed by Yoshihito Yano & Yuu Miyake and arranged by Miyake.

Here’s Django Reinhardt absolutely murdering a guitar in a song commonly titled “Improvisation #1.” It’s called just “Improvisation” on the album Crazy Rhythm, but I’m not sure what title, if any, is most official.
