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…
“Mission Complete” from Agents of Mayhem — Hits all the right notes (har har): stirring, epic, makes you feel like you could grow hair on your chest just by listening to this enough. Good stuff.
“Castlemania” by AmIEvil (OC ReMix) — OC ReMix gets a lot of respect from me, and AmIEvil has churned out some of the top tracks for that site. This is a great remix of the two most well-known Castlevania themes. Love that whip!
“Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (Live)” by Erasure — A friend of mine back in college used to make me mix tapes all the time, and most of them contained at least one Erasure song. Hearing this definitely makes me think of her.
“Vapor Trail” from Skull Fang — You get into interesting places when you do searches for “underrated video game music,” such as this title. It’s like a perfected action movie montage theme from the 1980s and I instantly added it to my favorites list.
“Main Theme” from Trine 2 — What can I say about this one? It’s just a lovely, lovely theme.
“Solaris Phase 2” from Sonic the Hedgehog — I’m not big on overblown boss battle themes, but this one has that perfect mix of epic and exciting that kept me hanging on every note.
“130 House Street” by Ron Wasserman — You now have a new wake up song. You’re welcome.
