While I was listening to Guns N’ Roses, MC Hammer, and the Monkees (don’t judge me, judger), apparently there were some people actually listening to the music that accompanied their video games. I mean, everyone knows the #SuperMarioBros theme music, but do you know who wrote it? Video Game Music has a strong following, and a podcast community to feed its hunger. Ed Wilson is the creator and host of the VGMbassy, where he explores the “video game music culture” of his guests and discovers some great tunes along the way. This was a really enjoyable chat – brought back a lot of good memories of my own – and provided great insight into a niche I’ve never fully appreciated.
