LMH Mixtape #37: Movies

The Legacy Music Hour Official Rulebook states that straight-up adapted music is illegal, but original compositions from movie tie-in games?  Those are fair play!  Have a listen to what some of the biggest films of the 80s and 90s inspired in the minds of some of the era's greatest video game composers.

Episode 172: Free Play 24

Brent and Rob bring in the neo year (the world’s neo year, not the LMH neo year) with another free play of great video game music.  Brent is sick, but sounds sicker than he actually is, so beware that there is a lot of throat clearing, coughing, and sniffling.  Sorry, the Legacy Music Hour hopes this isn’t too disgusting.  Also, Brent’s brothers, Max and Nicky, who were in town for the holidays, sit in to help comment and discuss and count time signatures.  Also, also, Rob and Brent open up a bunch of user submitted Christmas gifts (these gifts weren’t late, the boys just wanted to save them for the episode), so thank you to Joseph B. and KeyGlyph for the excitement and fun.  Full track listing below.
