The Cozy Nostalgia of Senran Kagura Burst’s Music

Senran Kagura music

Among the staff here at The Wired Fish, there’s no mistaking that I like me some old-school games from my youth. Much of what I bought this past Christmas was old PS1 games off the Playstation Store, chief among them being Wild ARMs 2. When talking it up on Retro Weekends, I reminisce about simpler times when all I had to worry about was going to school, doing my homework, and get further in that new game I got. Times have changed, with life moving at a faster pace now that I’m older, and info being fed to me faster than any magazine ever could back then. So when I happened upon Senran Kagura Burst, I came in expecting pretty much what I expected (and being all the more happy for it). But the bodacious package came with a neat little treat that I didn’t expect.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 3/25/13

Night-Time Listenings 34

Man, these Night-Time Listenings are getting erratic. But another week is passed and this time we got music. This week was all about town themes. We stopped by Violet City from Pokemon G/S/C. Next we got happy in Rose Town from Super Mario RPG. We chilled out to the town theme of Legend of Legaia. Reloaded our ARMs in Wild ARMs. And finally it was a sunny day in Chrono Trigger.

Sorry about not having a Night-Time Listening last week. But hey, we’re back, and we’re gonna show our love for Indie Games all month! We socked some dudes in Canada in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. We flipped out over VVVVVV. Tower of Heaven made its glorious return to Night-Time Listening. We kept dying in Super Meat Boy. And finally we went simple with Art Style light trax.

Night-Time Listenings 30

Happy Late New Year! Well, I got a good month off from doing this segment, but it’s time Night-Time Listenings returned. And since this is a new year, let’s head to the future, all the way to the year of the futuristic racers. So all this week we payed homage to the Futuristic racer, which was filled with crunchy guitars, thumping basses, and speaker busting noises. Featured this week was F-ZERO, Extreme G, Kinetica, F-ZERO GX, and Wipeout HD Fury.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 11/19/12

This week was Thanksgiving, so all this week was about giving thanks to the things videogames did for us. We started the thank-you’s with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Then we surfed from sewers in TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Then we climbed The Shard in Mirror’s Edge. Then we searched for the crystals in Final Fantasy IV. And finally we paid a visit to the Mushroom Kingdom in Super Mario RPG.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Halloween Special

For eight days we covered the topic of Halloween. The music we listened to ranged from dark, to mellow, to unnerving. We took a breather in  Resident Evil. Dreaded the Ishimura in Dead Space. We walked the haunted halls of Luigi’s Mansion. We braced for hell in Silent Hill 3. We feared the Alchemy Lab in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. We feared pianos in Super Mario 64. We inquired about the life of Boos in Super Mario Galaxy. And finally we ended where we began with another Resident Evil composition.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 10/15/12

We survived the bedlam of New York Comic-Con and took a much needed break for our feet to relax. In the meantime, we listened to Soundset remixes, where music from one game was remixed using another game’s instrument. The week started with a climb through Jakob Elevator from Mega Man X8. Wily’s Fortress was raided for the ninth time in Mega Man 9. Bowser’s Castle beckoned us in Mario Kart Wii. We flew in the wind in Super Mario Galaxy. And finally the Dark King was slain in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.

The month of horrors and diabetic candy began on Monday, and we came out swinging! This week was all about Battle Themes. Shots were fired with Wild ARMs 3, jobs were changed with Final Fantasy V, got funky with Persona 3, made music with Eternal Sonata, and became demons with Digital Devil Saga.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 9/17/12

After a one week break, Night-Time Listening made a comeback. This week was the week of Remixes. We kicked things off with Stickerbrush Symphony remis “Brambles in the Breeze.” We then battled to the bitchin’ riffs of S.S.H. and his remix to Final Fantasy VI’s Boss Battle. Vincent Rubinetti makes his second appearance on Night-Time Listenings with his remix of DKC3’s Nuts N Bolts, “Grinding Gears”. We played some demonic pinball with Sword of Justice’s remix of Devil’s Crush’s main board theme. Then we wrapped up the week with a trio of remixes from three unlikely sources. What were the? Well hit the break and check it out!

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 7/23/12

This week in Night-Time Listening, we chilled. We really chilled. So chilled you’d freeze. We started out with music from Viewpoint. Then we hit up the smooth sounds of OutRun 2006. We flew on our Rocketbelt with Pilotwings. We were at the ocaenside with Chrono Cross. And we camped in an icy mountain in Xenoblade.

Watch Dancing Mad Played On A Real Grand Pipe Organ

A couple of years ago, I was wondering if anyone ever bothered trying to do videogame music on a pipe organ. It took a while, but I managed to find one person that did just that. Posted back in 2009, someone by the username of DrRolde covered some song with his churches Grand Organ. Of course, since Dancing Mad was done with the SNES pipe organ sound, it was only a matter of time before he covered it.

I’ll just shut up now. Have a listen. It’s amazing. (and yes, he forgot the notes at one point and played the Fugue. Pretty hilarious.)
