I love music, and I like these movie quote and video-game-screenshot games, so I put two and two together...

Basic Info:

1. Songs should be in MIDI format. MP3 is OK, so long as the size doesn't greatly excede 1MB (this for the poor broadband-less guys and gals).

2. Music does not have to be composed for the game.

3. If the music was not composed for the game, you get extra points for naming the piece and composer. If it was composed for the game, you get extra points for naming the "area" the piece is most prominently played, and also for naming the composer.

4. Points are worthless slywink But you will get "mad props."

5. If I'm not allowed to start these threads. I apologize  biggrin



To get things going, here is an easy one.

It's the theme from Super Mario Brothers!

Here is my submission:
song2.mid

It's a bit harder, but if you spent as much mindless time with this game then it is forever burned into your memory.

Is that the "Hammer-Bros Battle" from Super Mario Bros. 3?

It might be, but I don't think so.  I didn't take it from a Super Mario title, but you never know if it is recycled since Nintendo owns both properties.  This title was released after SMB3.  This title was recently re-released, btw.  Hints!

Hmm... Dr. Mario Fever theme? Or did you mean it has nothing to do with Mario?

Ok, this next one is a very cool piece, and a personal favorite. Not sure how hard it'll actually be.

I know why I hate this game!

This song is so familiar yet I can't recall where it comes from!  No doubt it is something I haven't heard in 15 years, but I heard it so much when it was fresh that it is forever part of me.  There are so many things I wish I could remember, and old videogame soundtracks is not one of them.

For the moment I am going to guess Castlevania.  Must be the first or second since they were the only ones I have played.  Unless it is the PSX one.  It is just so distinct that you can't forget it.

Nope, not a Castlevania.

In this game you are the heir of the great warrior Erdrick (If I remember correctly.)

Here is one that might be a little tougher:

Nope, but is sure would fit in Castlevania, wouldn't it. (Heck, it may be in CV, I don't recall.)

It wasn't composed for the game, so other games could have used it; though, I remember only two.

Edit: Here is the same song, with the intro http://www.pixel-wizard.net/junk/ntt/5b.mid

The other midi sounds more like the game, but didn't have the intro, just the fast part.

Humm, I'm stumped.  I know it wasn't composed for the game, it's Beethoven or someone. slywink

The first two games that came to my mind were Castlevania or Ghouls n Ghosts.  

I have no idea  :?:

All I can think of is Castlevania as well.  That and that crazy arcade music game where you have to hit the color corresponding to the note.  Absolutely stumped.

Yeah it is Bach's "Toccata & Fugue in Dm", one of my all time favorite pieces.


So let's see... Ok. The game was created around Greek Mythology.

hmmm.  I dont think its rygar.  I'm pretty sure its not Kid Icarus.  Is it Battle of Olympus?  If thats not it I know I've got it on the tip of my tongue.  Is it a top-down type game?  Or maybe its Athena?  Is it Athena?  Ahh now i remember what was on the tip of my tongue.  Wizards and Warriors.  I dont think thats it but it had some similar music i believe.

I don't think I have ever heard of that one.

I sure knew it wasn't Athena!  Man, I played that game way too much.  It wasn't even very good.  I just remember getting the club, then the hammer, the helmet, etc.

Next up is from one of my favorite NES games. The game was fun and pretty much all of the music ruled.
