True Gaming Song of the Week – August 24, 2008

Hey everyone it’s time for another song of a week and it’s my pick this week.  The song I chose is from one of the best games on the SNES and in his franchise, the cast roll from Megaman X.  We all know how great the first Megaman X game was.  It completely changed the way we saw Megaman.  It took it from the same repetitive game it was to something much, much better in all categories.  One of the most memorable categories is, of course, the music of the game, which was spectacular as all Megaman music is.  There were five composers in Megaman X and I’m not sure which one did this song.  Those composers are: Setuo Yamamoto, Makoto Tomozawa, Yuki Iwai, Yuko Takehara, Toshihiko Horiyama.  Makoto Tomozawa went on to do and help with music in many other great games such as Megaman X3, Resident Evil, Dino Crisis, and both Megaman Legends games.  Yuki Iwai went on to do music in other games such as X-Men vs Street Fighter and Musashiden II: Blade Master.  Yuko Takehara went on to do the music for Marvel vs Capcom, Aladdin, Breath of Fire 2, and Final Fight 2.  Toshihiko Horiyama went on to do and help with the music in Megaman X4 and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything on Setuo Yamamoto despite using Google and Wikipedia.
