Last year, I spent a week and a half talking about the best Vocaloid songs. This year, I’m going to talk about other stuff.
Our topic for today is my favorite songs. Is this a comprehensive list? Knowing me, probably not. I’m sure there’s a few songs that I’m forgetting, but eh… These are all great anyway.
Are you at all surprised that this is on here? No? Good. The other nine after the break.
The original is epic, but this cover is MORE epic. Everything about this is perfect. The scream is still a tough contender for the Most Awesome Sound in the History of Sounds.
Listening to this song just gives you a feeling of epic power and grandeur, doesn’t it?
Techno awesomeness at its greatest. Also gaming at its greatest.
Kishida Kyoudan makes some really great music. I just love their sound. And this is my favorite of their songs. Even though I don’t know what it means, since there’s no English translation. I don’t think this is a Touhou-related song though, despite Maribel and Renko appearing in the picture.
My favorite Vocaloid’s best song. Even though I’m very grateful to its successor (Mozaik Role) for finally bringing Gumi to the #1 spot, I still like Coward Mont Blanc just a bit better.
I love the entirety of The Hobbit game soundtrack, but Dwarves at Work is my favorite track. It’s just so goofy. (To this day, I will randomly start humming this song, out loud, for no reason.)
Myst and Riven remain two of the very few things that I liked the soundtrack enough to go out and buy it. These two games have some of the best music for any game ever. Un-finale always struck me the most from the two. I don’t know why, really…
Mere words simply will not do any sort of justice to this amazing piece. The way the violin compliments the techno music is just incredible. IN-CRED-I-BLE. With a capital IN-CRED-I-BLE. I’m indecisive, so it’s hard to say for sure, but it is quite possible that this is my favorite song. Ever.
TAM and KEIGO go extremely well together. They have a number of epic violin/techno songs, but this one is by far the best.
So let’s see… Five songs straight from a computer game, two remixes of songs from a game, two Vocaloids, and one other Japanese song. Yeah, it’s pretty easy to see what I like to listen to. (I doubt I could name 10 songs from a “regular” artist that’s popular with the kids these days.)
…Dang, listening to these makes me want to dig out my old discs and play these games again… Actually, I think I will. Let’s see how well they run on modern systems…
Anyway… Come back tomorrow for my favorite videos.
