Music based on BG, BGII, etc.
« on: November 08, 2008, 11:32:58 AM »
Anyone know of any?

Other than the fact that it's André Olbrecht from Blind Guardian's favourite game ever, and that in 1991 Helloween did a song called "Heavy Metal Hamsters" I'm not sure there is any...

There have been new music tracks designed expressly for the game--theacefes did an entire alternate soundtrack a while back. But if you mean, some song released to the world at large which just happens to be about the Umar chickens... that, I doubt.

Phoebe and Cole get it on to the Jaheira romance theme (starts at 2:57). I think I've heard other BG songs on TV, too, but I don't remember where.
"Show me how you do that trick! The one that makes me scream", she said,
"the one that makes me laugh!" she said and threw her arms around my neck.
"Show me how you do it and I promise you, I promise that
I'll run away with you, I'll run away with you..."

Yeah, and I've heard of the game themes showing up in things like sports highlight packages and the like.

Older thread, but I had posted somewhere else that Mass Effect seems to be using very close tunes with BG during the final battle at the end of the game.
