LMH Mixtape #55: Fire and Lava

Lava levels have been a staple in video games since the early days, so of course the Legacy Music Hour needed a fire and lava focus of their very own.  Now get toasty with Brent and Rob F. the Switch's picks all over again, this time in mixtape form, as you carefully platform your way through some of the best video game tunes to feature words like "blaze," "burning," and "inferno" in their titles.

LMH Mixtape #54: Elevator Music 2

For over fifty episodes the Legacy Music Hour churned out unique, non-repeating themes... and then came Elevator Music 2!  This musical flavor is so quirky, interesting, and good that the boizz decided to revisit it before any others.  So get ready to drift away like you're on hold, in a waiting room, or riding to the top floor with this group of jams that are most certainly worth a hundred man dollars.


Instant new favorite:  Body Count - Map Screen
Other instant new favorite: International Superstar Soccer Deluxe - Further Challenges

Brewed new favorite: Chrono Trigger - Wings That Cross Time
