Let's talk about songs that very easy get suck in your head. Right now I have Forget You suck in my head.

1)It's "stuck", not "suck". Ew.

2)Wrong forum, methinks?

Thank you, it bugged me but I would hate to be "that guy".

But on the topic, I would have to say Köppäbävisan.

Lets turn this related to games,so the last song from game which was stuck for quite some time was main theme song from new Deus Ex,it was really epic shit.

For a moment I was wondering wheter you liked the Deus Ex theme or not.

The tune that I've most recently added to my music list was Botanicula's ending theme. It's sublime.

Fanbuoy

Yeah, Botanicula has a few gems. I've made "Yuchu" my wake-up signal.

As for game songs that won't let go, Empire Earth's intro has apparently left quite an impression on me, as I still hear it from time to time. I did play it a whole lot back in the day.

AoE II theme music. Awesome!

Fanbuoy

Oh, and let's decide on focusing on original music for games. Otherwise, I'll just end up listing GTA soundtracks.

Just Do It Up or Mechanical Man from the C&C95/Tiberian Dawn soundtrack. Or Hell March/Hell March 2 from Red Alert and Red Alert 2, respectively. Hell, pretty much anything from the C&C games prior to C&C Generals. I've got a few of them on my mp3 player and whenever I listen to them at least one of them gets stuck in my head for at least the rest of the day.

For non-game related songs, but similarly nerdy and doubly embarrasing, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers theme is something that will pop into my head and then drive me nuts for the next week. I still love the guitar work in the song.

I remember the original Deus Ex title theme very clearly, but can't recall the HR one at all. Anyway the TF2 main theme and all it's variations are constantly buzzing around in my head.

"Suck Infectus" is a great band name.

the various theme music's from Battlefield 2. The turkish sounding stuff was awesome, and I can still hum the majority of it.

Zia's theme, Bastion. I also find myself humming Tetris tunes every so often...

Of all the Half-Life soundtracks that tend to get stuck into my head, I'd say I remember this one the most:

A thousand times this.

I was humming it for days after finishing the game.

I've had the closing credits song for Delphine's Flashback in my head since yesterday.

The original Deus Ex song was really badass, but Michael McCann's "Icarus" is really epic as well.

Makes me think of the old trailer everytime.

Everyone at the same time now:

Best Friday @ 16:55 song ever.


It's game related because that's what I'm doing after I cut.

Half of Zelda's classic soundtrack. Skyrim's main theme. Super Mario Bros. And that song from Kill Bill Vol. 1 when Ellen whistles at the hospital.

Game music doesn't tend to stick for me, but whenever I hear this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHPOzQzk9Qo) I always spend the rest of the day whistling.

Main theme from Morrowind for me. I even exchanged Oblivion music with the one from Morrowind after some time.

From the Super Robot Wars series of TBS games, man the Japanese do epic music pretty damn well.

Oooh, oooh and then there's this. This tune makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end, it seems to capture that feeling of "O SHIT THERE'S A GIANT DEATH SKULL AFTER ME" feeling really well! From Secret of Mana:

I finally thought of a game related one, but it was too late. The thread was over (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BchDZue9LeE) and all that was left were fading echos.

I downloaded the sheet music ages ago. When I get round to learning the piano this will be one of the first pieces I learn.

I might just give Monkey Island another go. I also like to mention Loom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfUO2mBDoEI). Loved the music in that game.

Boris
19-07-2012, 10:50 PM
Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Icarus theme
Mass Effect 1's Main Theme
The soprano version of Red Alert 3's theme (from the expansion IIRC)
Trine's Main Theme
Trine 2's It's a Snake
Frozen Synapse Red's The Forgiven Geometry

And a lot more. I really like video game music.

Not to be pedantic, but you didn't listen to what I posted. :-)

Hell march, sure, but a Russian march about bears and vodka? Better.
