SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs - A Day Like Any Other Edition

We here at SuperPhillip Central LOVE video game music. We've been creating a library of sorts, featuring the best music to come from our beloved hobby. Today we have five new themes of sensational quality to add to our ever-expanding list. Such franchises represented are Resident Evil, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Cruis'n. Enjoy!

v596. The Adventures of Rad Gravity (NES) - Title Screen

There are few NES games with title themes that get our toes tapping and leaves an impression on us. There's Mega Man 2, for instance, and its iconic theme. One supremely underrated title screen theme comes from The Adventures of Rad Gravity, a truly unappreciated gem in the NES's library. Take a listen and see what you've been missing.

v597. Resident Evil: Director's Cut: Dualshock (PS1) - Mansion Basement

It was rumored that the composer of this version of the original Resident Evil was deaf. If he can create music full of such glamorous ambiance, imagine his composing ability if he could hear! The theme presents the player with an intense feeling of dread, perfect for Resident Evil.

v598. Cruis'n USA (N64) - Cruis'n USA

We would do anything to be able to dance to this music at a rave. It seems absolutely perfect for such an occasion. Showcasing the Nintendo 64's true-to-life sound capabilities, Cruis'n USA's titular theme was way ahead of its time without any doubt.

v599. Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (DS) - Nocturne

While Cruis'n USA showed off the power of the Nintendo 64's sound card, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, created by the brilliant, never-failing Bioware, pushes the Nintendo DS' sound card to its fullest capabilities. Nocturne is a superb take on Sonic the Hedgehog 3's final boss theme. If you aren't shaken up by this version, then nothing will ever faze you.

v600. Crazy Bus (GEN) - Title Screen

Perhaps this is too sophisticated of a pick for many, but we definitely are enamored with the avant garde direction the maker of Crazy Bus went with the music. While it's not to the level of The Adventures of Rad Gravity, we do find Crazy Bus to have a memorable and entertaining title screen theme all the same.
