Relaxing VGM Source Tunes

16 posts in this topic

This is not a favorites list or any kind of thing like that. I'm merely looking to expand my playlists at both work and home for when I'm crunching code and answering correspondence. Anything that is relaxing or chill. I am asking for source tunes, not ReMixes.

I will provide some YT examples when I can access it but stuff along the lines of Waterworld & Jurassic Park 2 for SNES, the ice level from Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse, the fish music from Mario Paint, downtempo piano stuff, select songs from the Silent Hill series, etc etc.

Doesn't matter what system they are on, just gimme gimme gimme!

Well, I think the Ecco the Dolphin songs go without saying, particularly 'Songs of Time' from 1996 which is the original composers vision of what the music in the original games would sound like if made properly not on the mega drive soundcard (oops, does that count as a remix?)

I've always had a soft spot for 'The Longest Journey's' soundtrack as well. It's a little engaging but, particularly if you've played the game and know the story, FULL of meaning.

This track is very relaxing and just one of my most favorite VGM piece. :)

Also, though it's a bit more atmospheric than melodic,

from Spyro 2 always made me drift away...

Half of the Star Ocean Till The End Of Time Soundtrack Volume 1 is relaxing orchestral. For example:

I have a "sleepytime" playlist of tracks I listen to when I'm going to sleep sometimes. Here are some of the game tracks I have in it. Keep in mind, not everyone will agree that these are "relaxing" (especially some of the SimCity 3000 ones) but I fined them relaxing.

Here's all you need:

The whole soundtrack is pretty much a relaxing, albeit pensive, hot mess.

Virbank City from Pokemon Black/White 2 had a really relaxed feel. I personally didn't want to leave the town.
