SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Thankful for the VGMs Edition

It's Monday which means that it's time to unleash five more excellent tracks for your listening pleasure. Up on deck this week: Gran Turismo 4, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, and Chrono Cross, for starters. Listen and enjoy.

v436. Gran Turismo 4 - Good Days, Bad Days

Dai Kasho. Is that name familiar to you? Well, perhaps if you're an F-Zero GX fan it would. He's the composer behind all of the themes for the pilots. In Gran Turismo 4, he inked some of the original songs on what is otherwise a licensed music soundtrack. It's Good Days, Bad Days from Gran Turismo 4.

v437. Yoshi's Island DS - Wildlands (SSBB Remix)

Yoshi's Island DS was a a fantastic, tough-as-nails platformer for the DS. It wasn't as good as the original, but it was very much competent. Wildlands is essentially the only worthwhile theme on the YI:DS soundtrack unfortunately. This is the Super Smash Bros. Brawl remix. Eloquently done.

v438. Muramasa: The Demon Blade - Unknown

Ah... Unknown Track Name... a title fitting for this pumping, majestic Japanese track. Not. As there's no official soundtrack for the Wii's Muramasa: The Demon Blade, we're left with no names to these fantastic pieces of music. Enjoy my favorite of the bunch here and now.

v439. Wild Arms - To the End of the Wilderness

I have only played through Wild Arms once from beginning to completion, and that was many moons ago. I certainly should go back to it one day, item duplication glitch and all. The theme you hear here is played during the ending credits. The day has been saved, the world breathes a sigh of relief, and our heroes part ways. How bittersweet.

v440. Chrono Cross - Dragon God

I really like the female vocals on this track. It's no doubt my favorite part of this theme. Chrono Cross was a game I'd tried to play through multiple times but just couldn't find the will to press forth. Nonetheless, that didn't stop me from enjoying the excellent soundtrack.

Next week we'll have songs from Mario, Sonic, Donkey Kong, two blobs, and The Conduit. Hope you'll look forward to those!
