Freespace 2 soundtrack.
Specifically Cinema2.wav and the ending movie music...

I think you can download a couple at freespace2.com (http://www.freespace2.com)

Also, Neverhood has one of the greatest soundtracks ever written, although rare, if you can get the CD set Imaginarium, you get the music from Neverhood, it's sequal Skullmonkeys and the Playstation game Boombots. All written by the master Terry S. Taylor. :biggrin:

There's just something awesome about videogame music, both from today and the old days. Makes you wonder why you don't hear alot of the newer stuff on the radio...

Yeah, IMO, the music in most SNES RPGs (FFs IV, V, VI, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana/SD3) have rarely been surpassed in newer games. That's most likely why vg_music radios are dominated by older music :wink:

Gah, I've only downloaded 1 videogame song, from ffcc...

Kazenone or Yae, best song ever v_v

03-13-2004, 02:10 AM
FF9, eh? I go for Dark Messenger and the English version of the credits tune. (Can't remember name right now.)
Yeah, I also have the soundtrack, only FF soundtrack I have. I was quite impressed with the music in that game, if I wasn't impressed with the game.

If you want a good track from SSB:M go for the Brinstar Depths one.

FF9: Melodies Of Life(or something like that)

That's the only one I've heard, and that's from a website :razz:

Anyone knows where I can download FF music? I'm really fond of them... :smile:

03-14-2004, 01:21 PM
The Best Music is
Challange - FFX { Or if you don't know how to hear it, Fight Seymour Omious}

FF9: Melodies Of Life(or something like that)

That's the only one I've heard, and that's from a website :razz:

You can get MIDI files here (http://ffgon.com/), but MIDI's don't sound too good. For more famous songs (I.E. Eyes on Me, One Winged Angel, Melodies of Life, etc.) you can probably find mp3 downloads by searching a bit off of yahoo or google. But as for live orchestrated versions of songs I can't think of any other way but the illegal downloading program stuff like Kazaa or Limewire (sorry if I'm allowed to discuss that here, I'll edit it out if I need to, just let me know).

Other favourites are Battle with Gilgamesh, One Winged Angel and the Atma/Weapon Battle Music from FFVI.
