Falselogic, please clarify the rules: when you say "Links to samples on youtube or other places should be placed after the bolded lines," do you mean like an actual link, or must it be a bare URL?

Well this should at least be in the Thunderdome:

C64 Commando by Rob Hubbard

For those of us in North America, be sure to speed up the video 1.25x for a more accurate experience of the music in that part of the world.

A couple years back I read about the virtues of the Roland MT-32 and how amazing some of the early 90s PC music sounded if you had one of their high-end sound cards. Sadly, I don't remember where I saw this written up at but I remember being amazed how much higher the quality of music was on the Roland MT-32 compared to a Sound Blaster card. Here were the songs that I specifically remember as being particularly pleasing.

Space Quest 3 - Introduction
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxEP05TtOfE (0:00-1:28)

The Secret of Monkey Island - Title

It was next to impossible to find the PC-88 or (especially) DOS version of the Fire Hawk OST on the internet. I tracked it down, but I'm going to have to upload youtube videos manually. I may also play around with my nomination order. How long are nominations up?

BTW, when trying to find the Smurf music, I found this gem.



It might be about Smurfs, but it was clearly made by trolls.

Also, when will I be allowed to post more music?

When I was a kid my stepmom had an old Colecovision and that game. It was as awful as you think it was.

I played that on my friend's Colecovision when I was a kid, and we both loved it. Spent entire afternoons playing it. The mind boggles.

I assume licensed recordings are out, but what's the stance on adaptations/arrangements of existing music? There was some good usage of classical pieces in the 90s.

I'm indifferent.

Well, I'm going to nominate at least two. That's 57. Rya's contribution makes it 59. At a minimum, we would need five more.

Well I added a third nom to my post.

Any policy on games that used actual songs in their OST? Are they viable, or original music only?
