Sunday Serenade: Celeste, Age of Empires, Atlantis, and more!

Time for another Sunday morning dose of random songs that I’ve been listening to this past week! Welcome to Sunday Serenade — now let’s crank the jams up with…

“Scattered and Lost” from Celeste — I’m just now getting into this indie game soundtrack, and dang it if it isn’t amazing. The complexity and journey of this track is astounding, especially when it builds up into this rollicking tune.

“The Wind Gods” from Age of Empires — This franchise always did have the most relaxing and exotic-sounding tracks. When this particular one gets going (it takes a while), it becomes this earworm that’ll never leave.

“Sunriders” from Atlantis: The Lost Tales — This one sucks you right into its tribal chant, reminding me a lot of Baba Yet from Civ IV. It’s rich and incredibly replayable.

“Amphibia Theme” by Saturday Morning Acapella — Not familiar with this show at all, but it’s a catchy little tune… and I love highlighting this excellent channel.

“Au Revoir” by Cascada — Yes, all her songs have a very similar sound to them, but some are kinda catchy. I liked this one, despite the autotuning.

“The Passenger” by DJ Gollum — Sounds like this a remix of a very familiar song that I don’t care to Google at the moment. Nice if simple beat.

“Fast Track to Browntown” from Super Meat Boy — A genuinely awesome example from a genuinely awesome soundtrack. If you like your VGM old school and fast-paced, you got to go for this one.

    “The Passenger” is the Iggy Pop/David Bowie classic, to save you the effort of googling it (although I wasn;t sure if you were being ironic…). Fairly straight version, emphasizing the beat and pretty much dropping all the nuance as wel as most of the verses. Not very subtle but I imagine it fills a function.
