Song for Week of July 6th, 2008

Tough choice this week, I think. I’ll have to go with a video game song.

“Dialga/Palkia Battle at the Spear Pillar” from Super Smash Bros. Brawl

So many directions when you start thinking about video game songs for this list. But this is probably one that comes to my mind recently. For that matter, this particular video game has so many good songs to choose from. This one sticks out-I like the beginning with the piano, and how it is consistently used throughout the song. The reason the piano works so effectively is because it has a neutrality in its tone. Is it suppose to emanate negativity or a positive outlook? Some may criticize it for its lack of direction at first. The song also combines the Spear Pillar music with the Dialga/Palkia battle music. The song is also lengthy for a video game song-over 3 minutes before a ‘loop.’ Check it out!
