Happy Valentine’s Day, all! Whether you like those crazy Hallmark cards or those chalky heart shaped candies, there’s at least something in there for people. And if you don’t like it, there’s always the time honored tradition of yelling at people to stay off your lawn. I’d personally like to do the latter myself, but the Missus won’t let me get away with it.

Anyway, I heard this particularly noteworthy theme, and had to share it. What is it and why? It’s called “Baba Yetu” by Christopher Tin for Civilization. What is the big deal? It’s the first video game theme to win a Grammy, marking the fact that video games are indeed of cultural and artistic significance. It also gives me hope that composers like Nobuo Uematsu and Koji Kondo will finally get their long overdue nods as “proper” music. From the critical standpoint, anyway.

Anyway, check out this theme for yourself. It sounds a bit Lion King to me, but I do like the piece. I’ve been away from posting on here (that crazy “work” thing), but rest assured I’ll be back on this week.

Be Sociable, Share!
