Sound Suggestions: Knights of the Cross

This is one of those songs that I know I love after the very first few chords, I can easily picture a legion of Crusaders enjoying a tall pint of mead while taking it easy after an epic victory.

Flutes, lutes and tambourines are heard throughout the song, and at around 1:10 the melody undergoes a transformation into what almost sounds like an entirely new piece.

Draw thine sword, and defend thyself, knave! Have at thee!

Sound Suggestions: Swimmin’ on a Rainbow Road

Lets go! On the nostalgia train to yesteryear when Mario Kart 64 was the king of it all and those weird Nintendo 64 controllers were the shit!

This song is a nicely paced version of the Rainbow Road track which will keep you bouncing a bit around the corners. Always good to have alternative to the classics, eh?

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: The Path To Everything

With all the stress that the middle of summer brings to some (yeah, right!) I decided that a calming melody best suited the situation.

This tune starts from a quiet beginning and builds towards a stronger end. Through it all, it maintains a semblance of peace. It allowed a modicum of quiet to come to my mind as I listened, and I hope it does to yours as well.

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: My 8-bit Destiny

While listening to this song, I can almost feel my old SNES controller in my hands. The fade-in must be my favorite part. Ah, the good old days of when actual quality games happened….

Ha! As much as I appreciate the 8-bit games, I much more appreciate the advancements in graphics that let us all tell facial expressions, color, and whether it’s an orange or a pokeball.

Cheers!

Ah, the indefatigable Waterflame strikes again. We have been featuring this artist on the 8-Bit Alliance for quite some time, and he has struck the mark once more!

This one is a happy little tune that speaks of peasants in the sunshine, playful days, and generally blissful surroundings. I expect there to be a downturn (just like in the movies) but it simply doesn’t come.

Enjoy!

Sound Suggestions: Turret Anthem

Rambling through my past favorites I happened to come across this little gem, inspired by Portal. Little did I realize that it was, in fact, free for the public! Imagine my joy and how much I annoyed people by playing this over and OVER!!

That’s right, as much as you are now going to enjoy doing the same.

The popular youtube video with all the synchronized turrets was created by Zachariah Scott and can be viewed here! Cheers!
