Episode 46 – Reverse Picks!


When co-hosts pick tracks on a video game music podcast, it’s typically songs they enjoy. But what if you tried to guess which picks your co-host would pick? In this episode, Justin and Mike reverse their picks, allowing Mike to pick tracks he thinks Justin would enjoy, and Justin to choose Mike’s tracks. What follows is an enlightening episode that showcases the strength of how well the two hosts know each other, as we give our Producer-who-is-also-a-Metroid, Janine, a night off. No callers, just two hosts sharing and rating songs they think they other would pick.
We’d love to hear what you thought about the concept behind this episode, as well as Mike and Justin’s choices. What was your favorite track?

    Hey guys! I kinda want to set the record straight on the composer information on that "My Dear Friend, Rally" track, because looking at Saturn Sega Rally's credits at a glance makes it a bit confusing, so here's the correct information on that track: "My Dear Friend, Rally" Music by Takenobu Mitsuyoshi Lyrics by Kenneth Ibrahim and Tetsuya Mizoguchi Arranged by Takayuki Hijikata Vocals by Naoki Takao Now Saturn Sega Rally's soundtrack is an odd mix to say the least - most of the in game music is actually sourced from a remix album that had come out a few months before the Saturn port, "Sega Rally Championship Ignition", where all the tracks are arranged and produced by guitarist Takayuki Hijikata. In addition to those tracks, the Saturn version adds some new music specific to the port (i.e, the replay and menu music, the re-arrangement of the attract mode song "Power Games") which was done by Naofumi Hataya. I wouldn't add Hataya to the "My Dear Friend, Rally" track. In later revisions of the Saturn port as well as the PC version, there's a second credit roll that explains this a bit in-game: https://youtu.be/2xUB5-88Tvo?t=624 The arcade version while it has mostly the same compositions, they're chiptunes powered by Yamaha YMF292-F. Hope this clears up a bit of confusion with that game! -Electricboogaloo P.S. the line they're saying is actually "Can you feel the heartbeat of the land?"
