Default Unused Music Underdome Nomination Thread

The theme: Game music that tragically never saw the light of day. The theme I'm envisioning is kind of broad and narrow at the same time, so here's the criteria:

  • Unused music. Tracks that are present either in the game's code or on OST releases that didn't make it into the final version of the actual game. These tracks are okay even if you can access them from the game's internal sound test.
  • Unreleased games. Anything from a game that wasn't officially released but still found its way into the wild is fair game.
  • Prototype music. If the arrangement, instrumentation, etc of a track differed significantly between alpha/beta and final release version, it's valid.
  • Truncated music. Any tracks that are significantly longer than the version actually played in game can be nominated.

This will probably be a pretty short dome... probably 32 nominations, if we can get that high. Feel free to choose a main and an alt nomination or two, and don't be afraid to nominate something as your main just because someone else alted it.

If you don't already have something in mind, the best resource for finding unreleased game music is probably the Games with unused music category on TCRF. If you find anything on there that you want to nominate but can't also find on youtube, let me know and I'll try to upload it. You might also just try searching "unused game music" on youtube or google, though be wary of what you find -- if it sounds like the Flintstone's theme, it's probably not real.

If you're otherwise unsure if something you'd like to nominate is allowed, just ask.

Nominations will be open for 2 weeks, closing at 12:00 AM PST on August 28th.

Drift Stage - Exclusive Coupe. The game isn't out yet, so that should count, yes?
Final Fantasy 14 Heavensward - Stasis Loop. Due to how this song plays in the fight, you may not even realize it's a song, let alone hear the whole track. I certainly didn't realize it was one until I got the soundtrack!

Chrono Trigger Pre-Release - Tyrano Lair (Unused) Kind of a remix of the second Boss theme.

Final Fantasy Mix - Mount of Sky Dragon. Final Fantasy Mix was an album that had some remixed music, but also several tracks marked as 'unreleased'. I'm not sure if this track counts, since it's unclear what game it's from, though Final Fantasy V is a pretty safe guess since it really sounds similar to that OST, not to mention the whole 'Sky Dragon' title. If it doesn't count, then my secondary is this track:

Super Paper Mario - Chapter 3 Opening (Unused). I've always wanted to work this in a SMBX game >_>

EDIT: And another:
Final Fantasy VI - Unused Town Theme

Pretty sure it is from V, yeah. From this album, originally. And the first 3 unreleased tracks on the F.F. Mix album are from IV, originally released on this album. I really like Restless Moments, myself.

FFT - Unreleased Shop Theme (considering this only shows up in one version game randomly, maybe it counts?)

FFT - Mitsui 08

So yeah, FFT has a toooon of unused music, mostly accessed through sound tests on the JP version from what I remember (I just have a collection of rips). Search for Mitsui and Myu + FFT in youtube to pull them up.

FFVI - Troian Beauty

Unused Track 3 - Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

It's the extended version because it's the only version I can find. also it's a rather short loop but I like it.

Sorry, but that's just the track From Objector with no intro.

I guess you could technically count it as unused, but that's stretching the definition imo.

Ah OK. Thought I recognized it from in the game, couldn't place the location. I can put up more nominations tomorrow if people want more.

Regulus, I have a song in mind to nominate that did appear in some versions of the game but due to a glitch in the NA edition did not play at its specified moment. It's Suikoden 2's Orizzonte. If this doesn't count because it did play as designed in other versions that's fine, but I wanted to ask before I officially nominated it.

Go for it. This is a situation similar to the Mitsui composed tracks in FFT.


Sarge: I said in the other topic that I would disallow games that were released in one region, but cancelled in another... I've changed my mind. As long as the regional release was cancelled, I'd say it's okay.

Presuming an unused remix of a track from another game is fair game I'll see if there's room in this for Rondo of Blood's variant of Cross Your Heart

Questions about a few things and whether they would count!

(Also, I skimmed this thread and don't think anybody brought these up already, but sorry if they did and I'm being all redundant here)

-The demo version of the ATTACKIN' DOLLET music from FF8 that was changed in the actual game because it sounded too darn much like music from The Rock?

-The music from X and Y and Sun/Moon that (from my understanding) can only be heard during the in-real-life tournament championship matches held officially by Nintendo that barely anybody in the universe will achieve themselves?

-Fatal Fight from Xenosaga II; I think (and if I'm wrong, somebody lemme know) this several-minutes-long song only plays for about 30 seconds during one cutscene with talking going on over it, and huge chunks of the song aren't heard at all. A different version plays in full in Xenosaga III, buuuut isn't as good (though I still nominated it in a past dome just cause it fit the criteria there).

-Oh! Also! Apparently, The Silver Case contained the entirety of its first two remix albums in the game's files, though only one song from them was actually used in-game; would the rest of those songs count?

Yes! Absolutely legal.

I love this version of the RBY Champion music. I guess... I'll allow it, because it's functionally gone forever once Nintendo stops running tournaments.

Yes, absolutely. This is exactly the kind of song I'm referring to in the "truncated" section in the first post.

Nomination: Cave Story - White (the only way to hear it in-game is to complete a speedrun of the bonus level, which makes it play on the title screen - basically a sound test?)

Alt: Scurge Hive - Unknown

No, because if you do you'll win.

Here's a thought: what about music that was used for a game in its original release, but then a future update removed the music, and it can no longer be heard? For example, the original 1.0 version of FFXIV had music that replaced entirely when it went to 2.0. Many of those songs in the 1.0 version no longer play in-game. Would those tracks be eligible?
