Orchestral version of the Moon Theme from Ducktales.

I think much of the music written for older video games is some of the most wonderful and complex music ever composed.  One of my all time favorites is the Moon Theme from the NES version of Ducktales.  It’s one of my go-to ditties when I want to smile.  :)

And today I found an orchestral remix that is just lovely.  Enjoy!

    This is a really good remix of the Moon Theme.

    And it was amazing what people got out of those old machines and the massive limitations in terms of memory and audio options.

      I knew a guy that had a cheapo Harmony™ guitar that sounded sweet, and I had a cool Gibson™ that sounded like crap. Then we switched guitars and the Gibson sounded sweet and the Harmony sounded like crap.

    This. So much this. Some of my favorite composers have come from video games. Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda…
