  1. Here is are 2 of the pages I have found in my search: (1st removed, we don't support them) http://www.mirsoft.info/gmb/ (The first one has track names for Guardian Legend). While you're updating the tags, I think it might be a good idea to include the original track names somewhere in there (I've been using the "subtitle" space for that myself). Also, for "original artist" I like to put in the name of the publisher rather than the system the game was released for. In the case of Street Fighter 2, for example, I think "Capcom" makes more sense for original artist than "Arcade". But that's just me. As for track names, I think anything that identifies where they came from is fine. I mean, Blaster Master for example just has "Area 1, Area 2" etc. Bionic Commando is one of those games where tracks extend across multiple locations, and there are some quasi official track names (they appear to have been retroactively named when ReArmed was put out) listed as follows: Area 1, 3, 4 & 7: Bionic Commando Theme Area 2, 9 & 11: Leap of Faith Area 5, 6 & 10: Heat Wave Area 8: Power Plant Area 12: Rise of the Albatross Additional tracks include: Prologue & Epilogue Overview Map: Okay, We'll Move Combat: Meet the Enemy Boss Dialogue: Intruder Alert Neutral Zone: Amongst Allies I still tend to think of the tracks by their original simple names, but the original NES game soundtrack is apparently now being sold with those track names by at least one site (https://www.sumthingdigital.com/AlbumDetails.aspx?albumid=3710). Interesting to note that Junko Tamiya is credited there as Gondamin (as in the game credits). According to wikipedia she has alternately been credited as "Swimmer Tamichan, Tamie, GON, Gonzou, Strong Tami, and J. Tamiya."
  2. Hey, I've been downloading music from this site for ages, but haven't really ever been able to contribute much, as I lack any kind of musical talent whatsoever. However, I noticed that as I was going through my MP3s that some of them don't have the original source song, or are missing the name of the original composer. Now, in some really old games you've only got one track, or the composer may be completely unfindable (according to the spell check, that's a not a word.) However, the internet being what it is (i.e. a series of tubes) I have been able to track down names for some of the songs and composers that are currently blank on the site. Also, I usually download the music for games I have played through. So, I'm guessing that with the help of the artists I could find the rest. They can give me some vague reference like "it's the music that plays when you fight the giant red spaceship that looks like a spider," and I'll be like "Oh, the level 1 boss music?" and they'll be like, "Yeah! That's it!" I'm a little obsessive-compulsive about stuff like this, so it would really help me sleep at night if I could help fill in some of these blanks! So, if there are any artists out there who just can't say where the music they remixed came from, please tell me what you can and I will do the research. I imagine I should also talk to djpretzel about what would be involved in actually updating that information on the site. Currently I have the track names for the remixes from Bionic Commando and Guardian Legend (though in the latter case I would want to check with the artists and make sure we're listening to the same songs). I've also identified the source music for some tracks that have since been removed from ocremix, but I guess that doesn't really do much for anyone here. Next I am going to try and identify the tracks from Final Doom, so if anyone can help me with that I would much appreciate it

  4. Hmm, so Pac Man was really the first survival horror game! And actually, I think this track would work really well for a game in that genre -- there is a definite sense of "build" to it all the way up to 4:18, where it stops without actually resolving. Creates a lot of tension. Yeah, good music for a survival horror game.
  5. There is a CD called "Sign" that was put out by Nobukazu Takemura, who did a lot of 8-bit NES music back in the day. I don't have the CD myself, but there is one track on it (it comes with a CD movie music video) that has some of the same vocoded lyrics and synthy instruments arranged in a similar bouncy and nostalgic fashion. This composition instantly reminded me of it quite a bit, although I definitely like "Incredible Singing Robot" better. I know that this is just a remix, and not an original composition, but I would still say that Star has got some pretty strong kung fu.
