Best Video Game Music: Iconic Themes 2!

Hey Legendary Looters, time to check out some more of my favourite music in video game history this time it’s Iconic Themes!. These are all my opinion, but I am open to hearing new music that I may have missed.  The only rules I’m following is 1 franchise per list and no song from a previous list can be used. So in no particular order, here’s my list!.

Street Fighter – Ryu’s Theme

Ryu’s theme is one of those track’s that hasn’t gone through any major changes since the original, and that’s a good thing!. Ryu’s theme is definitely one f the stand out iconic themes of gaming in any generation. Even those who have yet to play a Street Fighter game have undoubtedly heard and will recognise this song. It may not go with everything but it goes on this list!.

Mortal Kombat – Mortal Kombat’s Theme Song

Here we have Street Fighter’s main competitor back in the day, Mortal Kombat. I know this song technically wasn’t in a game but I feel it still deserves a spot on the list, since it only exists because of the franchise and is probably the song people will think of when talking about iconic themes and Mortal Kombat. The other song associated with the franchise thanks to one of the movies, is Halcyon – On and On which was also in Mean Girls, judging by the comments.

Donkey Kond Country – Jungle Hijinx

The song starts off kind of annoying in my opinion but it’s undoubtedly one of the most well known tracks to come from the franchise. I know I personally spent a lot of time on this stage and I’m sure a lot of you have as well or at least know it from stages in the Super Smash Bros franchise. Unfortunately the franchise didn’t make it through to future generations very well but a lot of people remember it fondly.

Tetris – Tetris Theme

Anyone who had a gameboy knows this song intimately. I couldn’t count the amount of times I heard this loop. It was addicting though, I didn’t ever get annoyed with it, which is surprising for me. Even if you haven’t played it, you almost certainly know it very well regardless.

The Legend of Zelda – Zelda’s Lullaby

One of those songs you expect to hear in any Zelda game to come out today. A beautiful piece of music, very relaxing and even helps you visualise the start of a journey. The Legend of Zelda franchise has a ton of amazing music to pull from but this is one of the few that stand out above the rest. I’m not a huge fan of the franchise in general, I like it, just not as much as most and it still hits me with feels and nostalgia.

I hope you all liked my list, next time we’ll be taking a look at Songs With Lyrics 2! Till next time!.
