What was your favorite Marty O'Donnell song?


4:00 PM on 04.19.2014



As we learned this past week, Marty O'Donnell is no longer with Bungie after nearly two decades at the company. His music is iconic in this industry, and the Halo series owes a part of it's infamy thanks to what he did on that series without a doubt.

While I think Marty will find work again easily if he wants it (maybe go to 343 and make the Halo music good again?), I did want to take this moment to reflect on his career at Bungie. Specifically the Halo series as the music he created for it has been some of my favorite for any game franchise out there.

The one that left the biggest impact on me was the Halo 3: ODST soundtrack. From the haunting saxophones of "Overture," to the feelings of defying the odds with "Special Delivery," ODST's original score has been one of the handful gaming soundtracks to actually move me to tears. Proper credit to Michael Salvatori who worked on this album as well.

So what was your favorite song/album/piece that Marty O'Donnell worked on while at Bungie, or otherwise. Did you know he made the Flintstones vitamin song? That was a good one too. Man remember when the Flintstones were cool?

This Destiny trailer makes me want to get my ass to Mars

In Destiny, the tops of long-lost skyscrapers poke through the surface of Mars which means, presumably, we'll have to work our way down through them to reach whatever lurks below. I'm not expecting to find anything good down...more
