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…
“Knee Deep” by Zac Brown Band — I think Alexa played this one day and it caught my attention because of Jimmy Buffett. It’s got that trip-troppy happiness to it that makes it the perfect relaxation song.
“Ending” from Amberstar — This totally sounds like the last victorious moments of an ’80s movie soundtrack. The sports team won! The kids saved their neighborhood from the evil developers! The alien found his family!
“Intro” to Shadow Warriors — This Amiga tune perfectly sells the action-packed lifestyle of an on-the-go ninja. It’s quick, it’s snappy, and it’s way cooler than you. Or me.
“Main Theme” from Double Dragon II (Amiga) — Honestly, I’m kind of tired of the overused Double Dragon theme, so hearing this radically different Amiga version was thrilling and unexpected.
“Hard Bass” from FlixMix (PC-98) — NEC’s home computer is another repository for incredible game music, and I grooved on the sharp beats of this one.
“Ghost Riders in the Sky” by Johnny Cash — Sometimes you need a good dose of Cash, and this seemed to fit the season well. Yeehaw.
