Recommended Posts

Curious topic, what were some of your favorite songs and soundtracks on the NES. Post and link a few you remember enjoying. I always loved the ominous the opening theme for Journey to Silius.

The usual suspects from Nintendo, or the big franchise mainline stuff like Castlevania, Turtles, Mega Man, they're obvious.

How about...

Super Dodgeball (Team USA, stage 1)

 

Another is Gargoyle's Quest II, picked A Long Time Ago (opening credit story roll) but really listen from 0-5min, shares the music with Gameboy original, just enhanced for each of those 5 clips)

Faxanadu

 

Mostly the Opening Theme  and maybe the weirdness of the World of Mist

 

 

Or how about the Optimistic sounding, happy go lucky Challenger Theme from Gradius?

It’s a typical choice but it’s gotta be Duck Tales for me. I’ve had the moon level song in my head for 30 years

Here's some lesser-known soundtracks worth checking out:

Solstice (Tim Follin)

 

Little Nemo - The Dream Master

Werewolf - The Last Warrior

Batman: Return of the Joker

 

I have more, but I'd know that it would be the usual from Nintendo, Konami, Capcom, etc.

With Halloween coming up soon, I thought this would be a good one to post. Shame this gets such a bad rap, it's a pretty fun co-op game. This is probably one of my more favorite tracks from the game.

 

 

Edit: Forgot about this one too, this another excellent track!

Title theme of Robocop 3, for me. And pretty much anything from Silver Surfer! Too many other games to name as well.

Two of my favorites that I don't think I saw in this thread... 

Beetlejuice

 

Taboo: The Sixth Sense

 

Worth getting the games for the music? Probably not these days. I'm pretty sure these were $1 carts I bought 20 years ago... :)

Hate to start with the easy ones, but both Zeldas, SMB2, Metroid and Kid Icarus had amazing music.  Those tunes will stay with me to the grave!  And of course Ghosts 'n' Goblins, Castlevania, DuckTales and MM2 are right up there too.  If I had to pick something (slightly) less obvious, I'd go with Wizards & Warriors.
