Featuring Metal Gear, Metal Gear, folk and synth pop.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
due to the success of last weeks Metal Gear entry I decided to make another entry with two smaller samples. The first one is from the ending theme of Metal Gear Solid from 1998, "They Best Is Yet To Come" which was written by Rika Muranaka and features Irish lyrics sung by Aoife Ní Fhearraigh:
There is a song by japanese Ocarina player Sojiro Nomura with a progression remniscent of this one:
Sojiro - "Prologue" (1988)
Then we have the song from the original Metal Gear that plays in the area where the Metal Gear is stored (replaced by the Super Computer in the NES version):
Metal Gear (1987) - Metal Gear / Super Computer Area
The style of the song sounds like synth pop and it is not surprising that one can find something comparable in the discography of synth pop veterans "Simple Minds", albeit slower:
Simple Minds - Calling your Name (1979):
Another Metal Gear entry for closure? We'll see.
