Perhaps you would like to hear the original versions of the cover tracks in the previous post?
Galbadia Hotel is a great site for animé and videogame music.
There appears to be no Alex Kidd soundtrack on there though. Odd.
Here’s a link to a Double Dragon soundtrack.and here’s the Moon track from Ducktales WARNING: VERY BEEPY.
Because that version is beepy (but the tune is actually really good) here’s a midi remix which may or may not sound nicer:The Moon – Retaliation remix
and here’s a midi remix, of Prog Rock-like levels of indulgence:The Moon – “Journey to the Moon” (7’’ Romantic Space Remix)
Enjoy. Well, if you like this sort of thing – chirping, beepy 8-bit music is something of an acquired taste, I think.
No sooner, it seems, had I blogged here about Tanguy Ukulele Orchestra and mourned the lack of anything new, than they release some new pieces, here
We’ve got Alex Kidd, Double Dragon and Ducktales to listen to. Exciting.Alex Kidd
I got this excellent news from insert credit – who knows how long it would have taken me to find out, otherwise?

These guys recorded these tracks a while back but it’s really hard to find what they’re up to now. It’s a group of Ukulele players playing and singing video game music. They do also do other music, one track of which I’ve included below.
Here’s the last website link I can find to them. 2005, yikes.
I know they’re a bit freewheeling and out of tune with each other in places, but I like it and hope you do too.F-Zero Theme

Today, I’m being rather lazy.
I was going to post again about one of my favourite bands, but I’ve been distracted too much. One of the distractions has been the release of this little demo of a game called Gesundheit!. ‘So why post it here?’ I hear you cry. Well, it just so happens to have some of best produced music written for an independent freeware game I’ve ever heard. Toy xylophones and flutes mix with accordions and guitar to produce some instrumental love-child between The Decemberists and The Boy Least Likely To. Along with the graphics and game itself, where you play a little green pig with a hayfever problem trying to lure monsters into traps, it’s also probably the most twee game I’ve ever seen. Just play it, you’ll love it.

War has never been so much fun…
Back in 1993, a poppy ska rhythm that wouldn’t be out of place on a Lily Allen record fades in and you get treated to one of the best video game music intros ever. The guy who wrote it, Richard Joseph, sadly passed away last week, and I’ve only just found out he was responsible for soundtracking pretty much my whole childhood playing video games. It is your duty to visit this tribute and realise that sometimes fake digital instruments through an ancient computer chip can entertain you as much as anything today.
