I shared this on a past EarthBound Central Live, but it’s too good not to share here! This is a cover of the Sound Stone music from EarthBound, with some new lyrics added: The musician also added this info in the description: Earthbound is my favorite RPG of all time. By sheer chance I came into posession of a copy when I was about 9 years old and the impact the game had on me was immeasura...Read More »
I shared this on EarthBound Central Live the other day, but it turned out to be too cool not to post here! Pishi sent this in a good while ago: Hi ‘Mato! I found this very good rendition of the two Earthbound themes. Unfortunately I don’t know much about the band. And here’s the video: The first part is Fourside’s music, and the second part is Twoson’s. You can skip ...Read More »
A few weeks ago I posted about an amazing version of Pollyanna doing in an Onett style (see here) and now Nelward Music has done a new one – the MOTHER 3 Love Theme done in a Fourside style! I do remember the very first time I heard the MOTHER 3 Love Theme (from here, in fact) and was confused because the first few notes started to sound like Fourside’s music. Now it’s all come ...Read More »
A good while back, I posted about how ROM hackers managed to extract MOTHER 3’s music data in a way that removes the “fuzziness” of playing it on the Game Boy Advance. You can read all about that here. Anyway, there used to be a big torrent file with all this music, but it’s since disappeared. So a reader named Jaco sent this in a while back: I searched the site and found a...Read More »
Broomweed has made an amazing post on the Starmen.Net forums about all of the music in MOTHER 3. It contains a chart and infographic data about all of the pieces of music, how they relate, which themes are most common, and more. It’s really impressive! (Click for full, super-sized image!) You can also check out the forum post and additional details here! ...Read More »
By now, most EarthBound fans know of the many instances of references, samples, and inspirations that EarthBound’s musicians used to create the game’s music. I still receive a lot of new findings from fans, and here’s a recent one from Andy D.: Hi Tomato, Recently I came across an old Our Gang short on TV and found what I’m pretty confident is the origin of the EB store the...Read More »
I shared this during the last EarthBound Central live stream, but it’s awesome enough that I want to share it here on the site too! Basically, the EarthBound Zero / MOTHER 1 remake hack for the EarthBound ROM is making significant progress, and vince94 recently did a custom version of Pollyanna for the hack, using EarthBound’s music engine. It turned out amazing: Audio clip: Adobe Flas...Read More »
