Episode 167: Computer Game Music

For years, the boizz have avoided a whole faction of game music that is somewhat similar to video game music, but also quite different: computer game music.  Often times, people think that VGM and CGM are the same thing, but they're not exactly, and the Legacy Music Hour was created to showcase video game music, particularly from the 8-bit and 16-bit era.  But, for this one time only episode, Brent and Virtua Rob (the boizz are back) finally take a journey through music from games for the Commodore 64, Macintosh, PC, and more, and also stay fairly close to the time period that coincides with the third and fourth generation of video games.  So to mark Rob's new form, here's a very unusual edition of the Legacy Music Hour.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #28: Sonic the Hedgehog

Writing the usual sort of unbiased third-person introduction was almost impossible for KeyGlyph this week.  Why is that, you ask?  Because for her -- as well as countless other gamers -- the music from the Sonic the Hedgehog series holds some of the nearest and dearest spots in her VGM-loving heart.  This mixtape may send you through loop-de-loops of nostalgia, or it may take you to previously unknown zones; either way, there's simply no denying that the LMH Sonic the Hedgehog focus was way past cool.
