Official Song Names Released

Post by Flaose »

For those of you who are interested in such things, the Videogame Music Preservation Foundation Wiki has just gotten into contact with Bobby Prince and procured the official names of the Keen songs!

For fans of his work, over the next few weeks the official song names of many other shareware classics should be released as well (so far Duke Nukem II is the only other one with complete names available)!

Now I'm more interested in what Bobby Prince have composed after CK, Doom and Apogee days. Does he still compose these days?

Heh, "Yore". For some reason I wasn't expecting Olde English.

That's an interesting link, Flaose! I'm going to go exploring the other games on there now...

If a song has a name but nobody's around to know it, is it official?

People seem to think he is dead but he is composing sounds and music for the Indie FPS Wrack.

Hey, this is pretty cool. Thanks for the heads up.

"Spiro Grip Me Tighter"... huh... I suppose that makes more sense than "Make It Tighter", a name which I'd always found to be odd.

I tried to watch my mouth, but I don't have a mirror or webcam. I tried buttoning my lip but I can't get my head under the sewing machine for the buttonhole.

Awesome, been buggering him by email myself for the song names but alas he wouldn't answer. :p Guess he finally got tired of all the bugging and decided to start releasing the names-

"Ominousity", eh? So that's the name of the song that has served as the soundtrack to my nightmares all these years.

The song for QED has had a real name since 1916 at least. :P

The seriousness of this is underlined by the fact he didn't make a buggering joke.

I'm surprised it wasn't called some stupid pun like 'Mars, Bringer of Neutral Stunners' or some such.
...
I'm no good at puns.
