LMH Mixtape #62: Comic Books

Comic books were one of the primary sources of video game fodder in the 80s and 90s, and although neither Brent nor Rob were "comic book guys" growing up, they made sure to give the genre a proper focus.  Now reissued as a mixtape, follow the tracks panel by panel and cover a wide variety of musical styles before slipping the MP3 back into its protective cardboard-backed plastic sleeve for safekeeping.

Episode 193: Best Of Year In Review 6

Time for another Legacy Music Hour year-end countdown!  Brent and Rob share their top ten tracks of the year (Episodes 181, and 183 through 192 -the closing track of 182 is possibly eligible as well).  In case you don't know the rules, tracks chosen must be pieces of video game music they became aware of only within the last year and that were played on the show.  Plus, aside from Gabe and Trevor being present, the gang is joined by the hosts of The VGM Jukebox podcast, Emily and Josh.  Emily also does the LMH Mixtapes and Josh often times contributes VGM Karaoke songs heard on The Legacy Music Hour.  Thank you to all the support from the users over the years!  Partial track listing below.
