We are back from the holidays, and while our last edition of Memorable Music in Gaming had a decidedly winter theme, we are back to just good old music from a variety of different inspirations. Most interesting about them? each one comes from a different platform.
Donkey Kong Country (SNES) - Aquatic Ambience
In MM #13 I presented my all-time favorite VGM. I picked that song after years and years of listening to a wide variety of VGM - ranging from chip-tunes to orchestra compositions - and leaving unfair decision factors such as nostalgia and bias at the doorstep. But because our tastes remain ever-changing, I often find myself citing Aquatic Ambiance as the top VGM ever made. Composed by David Wise, this music plays during the water levels and makes liberating use of atmosphere and spooky ambiance to create a hallucinatory, out of this world effect that has yet to be matched.
