BGM Anthology!

There comes a time in every gamer's life where he just sits and listens to the BGM (Background Music) of a game. Who can forget Super Mario Bros's bouncy theme song, or The Legend of Zelda's triumphant, galliant, overworld music? Well, there must be someone, but they don't matter right now. What matters right now is some of the greatest BGM's I've ever heard. You may know some, you may not know some. But, I've decided that they all deserve a place in the ChuckBlog Hall of Fame, and here goes.

Okay, this one's so amazing that I had to put it first. If you listen to any it better be this one. Chai kingdom was used in the GameBoy game, Super Mario Land. Throughout the game, Mario traveled around the world to save Princess Daisy. He went to Egypt, Easter Island, and an asian themed land named "The Chai Kingom." Chai Kingdom (the song) fits the mood perfectly and has an awesom bouncy beat.

Metal Gear II has some of the best game music I've ever heard. But the best, by far, is the Theme of Solid Snake. It perfectly captures the game's tactical espionage feeling, and may be one of the only BGMs that can be seriously danced to. This is some hardcore techno, blended with traditional BGM.

Metal Gear II isn't the only game with a lot of good BGMs. There is not a single one BGM that you cannot enjoy in Kingdom Hearts. Some of the best music, ever. The game has NO BAD TRACKS! Traverse Town is one I picked just because of how soothing it is. You don't get many soothing BGMs. If it was up to me, this and the Smooth Jazz Nyan Cat would be playing in elevators EVERYWHERE.

These are just a few of the great BGMs, and I think I'll continue m BGM Anthology posts, but this one definately was a success.
