It's October, so that means more spooky music. This one is from Metroid II on the Game Boy, a perfect audio experience that was crafted in a way that really evoked fear in the player. This is a combination of two tracks, one that plays right before you reach the Queen Metroid, then the battle itself. It's better in the game, since it's been building up to that point, and there are sound effects that are missing here, but all-in-all, Metroid 2 was a master course in game design.
The Sega 32X didn't have a terribly long career, but it did manage to receive some exclusives, including this mech action game that was made to push the limits of the hardware with texture mapped polygons. Here are TWO tracks from the game, instead of the single that I often do.
National Battle track from the arcade exclusive Mario Kart, Mario Kart Arcade GP DX. This was the 3rd arcade exclusive release of the popular racing game, and makes use of online features for VS. battles in Japan. The online features were deactivated for US machines in Dec. 2016.
Now for something else different - music from a real pinball machine! Pinball machines often use the same kind of sound chips that arcade or home consoles would use, and the music would be made in similar ways.
Here's a track that was a part of Fish Tales, a popular game based off of the theme of fisherman telling tall tales of their catches at sea.
Here's another track that's a little bit different from the norm, a remix track instead of the original game music. This was remixed from Ecco The Dolphin that originally launched on the Sega Genesis in 1992, remixed by DJ Alaria.
It's time for another Bitchute & Bits'N Synths EXCLUSIVE! Thanks to DJ Alaria for providing this almost lost to time track of some music he composed for a never finished video game by the name of Biostar. The game was being put together in Game Maker, but didn't make it very far before the programmer left. Still, a couple of music tracks came into existence for it, this being one of them. This would have been played during the first boss battle.

The Hangar track from the PC-DOS shoot 'em up game Raptor - Call of the Shadows. For me personally, it was one of the first VGA games I had the pleasure of playing, enjoying all of those 256 colors :P
The first boss track found on the RPG adventure game Neutopia for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16.
A track from the arcade exclusive video game, Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 6 by Bandai Namco. Composed by Yuzo Koshiro
One of the more recognized tracks from one of the biggest games in the world, Minecraft by Mojang. Track composed by C418 and released on Minecraft Volume Alpha. Support C418 by purchasing the album here: https://c418.bandcamp.com/album/minecraft-volume-alpha/
A song from the Panzer Dragoon Saga, one of the last official games released by Sega for the Saturn as the company began transitioning over to the Dreamcast.
One of the most recognized games in the universe, here's the track that plays on Chun-Li's stage (from the arcade version, not the inferior consoles)
One of the principle tracks in the wall jumping, gold collecting ninja game N+. Starting out as a flash browser game, this first made the jump to handhelds, then to consoles as N++.
One of various games that put Rare on the map for gamers, Donkey Kong Country gave the iconic character a new platforming thread for players to explore and enjoy while building on the lore well beyond where the arcade titles had started in the 80's
A catchy tune from one of Nintendo's launch IPs on the SNES that was made to showcase their Mode 7 tech, Pilotwings.
Another great and memorable track from the iconic racing game, Daytona USA, developed by Sega AM2 and released to arcades in 1993.
Title screen music for a ZX Spectrum shoot 'em up (shmup) released as part of a magazine tape collection.
Here is one of those theme songs that is recognized anywhere, the 007 theme, as found on the award-winning and popular GoldenEye 007 game for the Nintendo 64. Bond, I presume?
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission & the moon landings, here's another track from Star Trek: Legacy by Mad Dog Software and Bethesda, dealing with the famous "No-Win Scenario" that was established in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
From the seminal point-and-click adventure game by Lucasfilm, The Secret of Monkey Island. Produced with a MIDI synthesizer, as most games were from that era.
The Roland MT-32 version of the Tax & Money track found on the award winning city building & strategy sim, Sim City 2000.
Original cartridge version of the music, which differs from the CD ver.
Continuing to celebrate 47 years of Atari, here's one of the best known pieces of music to grace any Atari platform, Mind's Eye as found on the original cart version of Tempest 2000. While Jeff Minter is best known for his recreation of Atari's arcade classic, the music was composed by a three man team at a company called Imagitec. The tempo of this song matches perfectly with the intense action found in the game, encapsulating the techno style of the 1990's.
Here with another celebration of Atari music as the company celebrates 47 years since being formed, it's the excellent and well-remembered track from the unusual arcade game, Marble Madness. This was the first video game to feature true stereo sound, thanks to the use of multiple sound chips.
So BitChute's on a different clock than I am, so when I'm posting it, it's still June 27th. June 27th is a milestone in gaming history, as it's the day that Atari Inc. was formally organized back in 1972. Their creation of Pong and many other games would become trailblazers of gaming entertainment. While the company was split into two in 1984, many people in the company considered the arcade division, Atari Games, to be the true heirs of the Atari name & brand, given that it started off as an arcade producer, and not a maker of home games until years later. Here's the track that is found at the beginning of Atari Games' best selling game of the 1990's, Area 51.

A curated collection of video game songs. Platform doesn't matter, but also not seeking to post every single video game song ever created - just ones I like. Covering systems from Coin-op Arcade to popular home consoles (Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Sony) to somewhat more obscure platforms (non-mainstream computers like Amiga/Atari and so on).
