Doctor Octoroc Creating Set For 8-Bit & Beyond

Hello everyone! I'm putting together a music setlist for the 8-Bit & Beyond art show at Brave New Worlds Comics and I wanted to get some ideas from all of you lovely people!

I'm planning on playing a mix of originals I've arranged, other artists that utilize chip-tunes and music straight from games in a mix. What I need to know is if there are any artists, games or particular tracks that you want to hear! Obviously, everyone expects to hear the Super Mario Bros. theme, or the overworld music from The Legend of Zelda, but there are plenty of obscure games I can throw into the mix and I'd like to officially open the floor for suggestions!

I may also have a request sheet at the show so people can circle games or tracks they'd like to hear. I may also do a raffle for CD's, but I'm not sure of my limitations at this point...

For any of the Genesis fans (curse you!), I've compiled a Sonic The Hedgehog medley...it's superdope.

the guardian legend has some PHAT MUSIC.....the password screen is sick.

um...I'd also suggest music from JACKEL...

Hope I can make it to this show and finish my image on time.

That song from the end of "Portal" is the greatest videogame song ever I think.

I have some original 8-bit music that I've made over the years. I dunno if you'd want to use any of it or if you're just sticking to songs from actual games

Ive been listening to the music from the Afro Samurai game. its got some pretty good things going on in it, alot of beats. Sonic the Marble zone, Ninja Gaiden 2 intro, Castlevania- Vampire Killer, Contra - Jungle theme, Theme of Laura-Silent Hill, double Dragon theme. MK1 theme would be sweet too.

Dr Octoroc you rule! Sonic, especially the bonus 'ring' challenge level music has always been among my favorites. actually, the music from sonic 2 all around was an influence that stuck with me always.

you know what song i'd love to find? i always thought the main (level 1 walkin' around) music from Kirby's Dreamland for the gameboy was pretty freakin' awesome

wish i could be at this show. not only for the amazing art everyone is making, but now for the cool soundtrack! thanks Dr Octoroc!

every so often, between songs, you should throw in a few measures of the battletoads pause "music"

Doctor Octoroc said...

Haha, Jude - Battletoads, that was amazing...I should just play every OTHER song to the beat of the Battletoads pause music, haha.

A lot of good suggestions overall, I'm getting inspired now...

i know this shit is obvious but it's a classic: wiley's castle part 3 from megaman 3 is epic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDkewKBEUxk&feature=related

also, ninja gaiden was all pretty intense.
