two slightly different versions of the same song. elebits missions 25 & 26.
probably naoyuki sato: https://vgmdb.net/album/4288
game has other music, but it’s a lot more upbeat, jazzy, positive. these tunes have an odd, sinister tone. even the final boss theme puts in a hopeful piano bit.
whole ost recommended listening, or not.

not that it’s all gathered in one place anywhere. there’s YT playlists but they miss a track or two.
like, there’s this weird site: http://www.smashcustommusic.com/game/479
but you won’t automatically move between tracks.
or this similar transcoding: https://www.zophar.net/music/nintendo-wii/elebits
but the songs aren’t marked
also neither has the Japanese version of the theme song. Which is variously on Youtube, since it was in beatmania/Pop’n Music. Nice song, either way.

I’m not sure why: this post.
Long night.

I was just looking up Mog’s theme from FF6 and found this new theme:

The Longest Journey has a local bar in it and the jukebox is loaded with a few bassy chill out tracks. This one has a vocal element to it and I have always liked it a lot.

I don’t know if this counts, but in 1999, several video game composers got together to make an album of what they think music in the year 2197 might sound like. It’s mostly unremarkable, veering on god-awful at times (“Gumdrops”).

Hitoshi Sakimoto’s is my favorite, surprisingly (because I like exactly one Hitoshi Sakimoto OST):

This isn’t Hiroki Kikuta, but it might as well be:

Tim Follin was doing this sort of thing back in the Commodore 64 days, too. This one has always been a favorite of mine:
