Kaiten Ninja - breakdancing to video game music
« on: February 08, 2009, 08:43:49 pm »


I saw this on GoNintendo.  Interesting selection of tunes.



As seems to be the norm these days, you should probably watch it at YouTube and click on "watch in high quality".

I couldn't recognize most of the music, but I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Stone Man's theme.

What's the tune that starts at about 4:27?
That's the boss theme from Streets of Rage.

I didn't recognize much of it either.  I think that there was some Street Fighter in there, and nobody can mistake the Pac-Man jingle.  There was some Streets of Rage, Mega Man (Stone Man and Cut Man), the Capcom logo jingle, and the hurry up jingle from Super Mario Bros.



I looked for a complete list of songs used in this video, but I couldn't find one.

Ah, so it is.  I knew that I had heard it before, but it has been a while since I last played The Revenge of Shinobi.  Thanks.

Stone Man, eh?



Ah, yes, at 2:56.



I'm pleasantly surprised that the music in Mega Man IV and V is really good, now that I've gone back to listen to the NSF rips.  (I should get the NSF for Mega Man VI as well...)



They're not as memorable as the ones from the first three games (or at least II and III), but maybe because of the number of times I've played those (I guess that's why Mega Man X is memorable, too).  I shouldn't write off the music from the other games just because I can't readily identify with Robot Master's stage it belongs to.
