We all know how it goes. Music is a part of video games throughout everything, from those artists who exclusively focus on video game music, to those who just want better promotion, the songs and music of video games is what makes them work.
Imagine blasting through Sonic the Hedgehog's Green Hill Zone without the iconic theme. Same goes for the original Super Mario Bros. We may not think about it when actually playing the game, especially during intense moments of play, but when we have time in the game to just sit back and enjoy the music, you can understand why it's there.
As I type this now, I am listening to the three song preview that Crush 40 have on their Youtube channel. To listen for yourself, visit the video here. The three songs, Sonic Youth, One of Those Days, and Rise Again, are something of a minefield of speculation.
The songs themselves sound great. Crush 40, as usual, have created three perfectly good songs, and I can't wait to hear them fully. The way I listed them above is how much I like them, Sonic Youth first. But talking of Sonic Youth, and thinking of Crush 40's relationship with SEGA, it seems we might be in for a treat.
