LMH Mixtape #65: Water and Underwater

Ah, water levels.  Whether relaxing or daunting, these stages often offer up some of their games' most memorable music.  So go ahead -- immerse yourself in this steady flow of aquatic tunes and let your mind drift.  We promise the Ninja Turtles dam level music will get less traumatizing with time.


Instant new favorite: Ristar - Round 2-1 (Splash Down!!)
Brewed new favorite: Liquid Kids - Waltz of Water and Bubble (Stage 2)
Blatant Favoritism Award: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Hydrocity Zone Act 1

This track scared me as a child:  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Underwater Bombs
Gets me a little emotional:  Ecco: The Tides of Time - Big Water

Episode 195: Brent’s Recent Games

For Episode 195, Brent picks tracks he only recently discovered by playing through the actual games.  Gabe also blesses the boys with various gifts due to this being the Christmas episode.  Rob accidentally comes up with a new expression to describe things that are bonk.  Trevor accidentally ruins a surprise for himself.  And there’s a big debate about if a track played on the show is legal or not.  Brent also plays a message Rob left on his answering machine, a name-that-tune situation which you can guess for yourself in comments section below.  NOTE: In case there is any confusion, during Rob’s phone message, there’s a video game sound effect which was put in during the editing of this episode in order to censor a bad word Rob said during the message.  That is, it wasn’t a sound effect Rob left while recording the message.  Full track listing below.
