“Aurora (Meet Me in the Stars” from Summer Singles 2010, by Anamanaguchi.
I want to do something different with VGM Wednesday this month.
Instead of finding tunes from games, I want to flip that expression around and find game-inspired tunes. That could mean a lot of things and over the next five weeks, it will
The first is from the fabulous 8-bit band, Anamanaguchi. Their music is all original and has the feel of classic gaming, but with modern harmony and parts/riffs that would normally push any 2A03 to the limit.

SO GOOD.
I love this band and bought their albums, I recommend you do the same.

Clear skies, everyone!
