Welcome to another handsome episode of NLFM, the chip and game music podcast from Nintendo Life. This month we succumb to the holiday spirit and explore the seasonal chip music landscape in this holiday spectacular spectacular!
NLFM will generally focus on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64. We'll also highlight video game-inspired bands and songs to round it all out.
We've got a swingin', carolin', tree-burner of a sophomore show, so here's the tracklist for this episode:
1. Home Alone (SNES) - Home Alone Theme
2. Bit Shifter - Let It Snow (The 8bits of Christmas)
