    Default Video Game Music Covers!

    I have an inordinate amount of video game music on my iPod, which I listen to. It gets rather sad when I have two or three different versions of the same song, due to all the lovely people on YouTube and elsewhere who like to cover songs.

    Updating older music with fresh instruments or a new style is really cool, and I'm a sucker for orchestral renditions of classic pieces.

    Final Fantasy's Distant Worlds is an obvious example, but there's a surprising amount of individuals with a talent for string or voice who can put together some very nice-sounding tracks.

    Phoenix Wright has a pretty large fanbase, so some of my covers are from that. I like Persona, and that has a following. But yeah, what sort of covers have really interested you?

    Look up P4 Reincarnation and the Phoenix Wright Meets Jazz/Orchestra for some "official" covers, I suppose you could call them.

    One of the earlier and greatest YouTube drum covers I ever saw.

    Yeah, I'd say so. If it isn't the 'original', then it's a cover.

    Not exactly covers since they're the actual composers for Square Enix, but I love The Black Mages. I wish they wouldn't have disbanded.

    Touhou project has so much covers/remixes that you could never run out of songs to listen to. There are Terabytes of music to enjoy.
    Here are 3 of the same song. (Hartmann's youkai girl.)

    Want an accordion cover? Here's one "Judgement in the Sixtieth Year ~ Fate of Sixty Years"
    here

    Folk? Enjoy this one of "Futatsuiwa from Sado"
    click me!

    An actual orchestra? "Emotional Skyscraper ~ Cosmic Mind"
    here you go!

    and for one of my favorites. This one is of "Bloom nobly, Cherry-blossoms of Sumizome ~ Border of Life"
    Latin lyrics!

    The MATERIA and SUCCESSOR remixes of FF7 and FF8 songs are a mixed bag, honestly. There are awesome songs in there, and also terrible techno remixes.

    But I suppose there is something for everyone, so check it out.

    I listen to a lot, but at the moment I only feel like linking you to Kirby's Dream Band stuff. That Chrono Trigger track...

    You can get the Pink Album for free.

    Man, as much as I enjoy Touhou music I've never found a remix that could quite match up to the bliss of the originals blaring into your ears as you dodge nonstop bullets.

    That remix of Yuyuko's theme is pretty sweet though.

    Time for some self promotion!

    My stuff isn't as good quality as a lot that's been shared here, but hopefully someone enjoys it. I'm currently in the process of working on more Final Fantasy songs (Melodies of Life, Tantalus' Theme, Theme of Love, to name a few). I want to incorporate more of my girlfriend's beautiful voice, so maybe more video game ballads in the future.







    There's more on my playlist here.


    "... and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written."
