Music to pixel by

I live in retro-land most of the time. I’ve come to this conclusion lately after realising that whenever I’m working I mostly listen to NewRetroWave stuff or old console walkthroughs on Youtube.

I’m thinking about why this is (most of the time I reckon it’s likely a desperate attempt to cling to the past) but I mostly think it’s because there’s something about the music that fuels creativity. Some of the soundtracks for our beloved 8 / 16 / 32-bit consoles are just fantastic. They’re a mix of everything from tuneful, jaunty melodies to melodic, ominous synth tracks.

The NewRetroWave tunes I’ll discuss in a later post but for now I have to share my Top 5 retro game music soundtracks – it can’t be helped. It’s likely that most of them will familiar to plenty of folk; if so, then this will be a nice stroll down memory lane, but for those with virgin ears – click on and enjoy…
