Video Game Music Box has created a brand new album series featuring lots of lovely gaming soundtracks in lullaby form - and we're suddenly feeling far too relaxed and sleepy.
The first wave of albums includes iconic games and franchises such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy VII, Undertale, Chrono Trigger, Castlevania, and Pokémon - all of which are available to stream or purchase as we speak. If you struggle to get to sleep at night, want to introduce a young one to your favourite tracks, or just love the idea of having delicate little versions of the usually-epic pieces from these franchises, we urge you to give them a listen. You can check the albums out on Bandcamp (with limited free streaming available for select tracks), Spotify and iTunes.
The arranger behind these pieces, Video Game Music Box, notes that this is only the beginning for a series which is set to include many more albums.
"Music Box Classics will be a lifelong project, with each new album dedicated to a single game title or game theme. Each album will feature pure music box sound with no additional instruments. This is perfect for relaxing or falling asleep. And for those gamer parents who want to introduce their little ones to videogame music early on, these will be the perfect albums."
If you do head off to give these a listen, make sure to come back and let us know what you think in the comments below. As long as you haven't accidentally fallen asleep, of course!
