It's no secret that I love music from Konami's Castlevania series, so when I heard that Discoalucard at Hardcore Gaming 101 had made an epic medley featuring one segment from each game (minus one or two) in which the song "Vampire Killer" appears, I knew I had to give it a listen. Presented as a walk through Castlevania musical history, the piece opens with the classic Nintendo Entertainment System version of the theme, advanced into Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse's take on the song (called "Deja Vu" on that soundtrack) and then blasts off through territory such as the Super NES's Super Castlevania IV, the Sega Genesis's Bloodlines, and beyond into the modern day's Game Boy Advance titles and other recent releases.
Will someone out there take up the task of creating similar works for long-time Castlevania tunes "Beginning" and "Bloody Tears"? Consider the gauntlet thrown down. The funny thing is that I'm not so sure this sort of thing could be done as effectively with other franchise music. Mega Man themes don't recur that often. The classic Super Mario Bros. overworld theme tends to appear as minor hints and tributes in unrelated songs. The Legend of Zelda overworld theme could work if one didn't mind it being unsatisfyingly short. Help me out here. Which gaming franchise music lends itself to this style of presentation?
