We've come a long way from listening to midi files by Highland Productions. We need a thread for sharing the excellent music covers on Youtube.

 

This guy has done several Monkey Island covers, I particularly like his Barbery Coast and Jojo covers but they are all good.

I joined this forum mainly because I've been on a massive nostalgia kick lately, which is manifesting mainly in me playing Monkey Island and listening to the scores! The first guy you posted was a brilliant discovery, he captures a raw and authentic sound that makes me so very happy!

Really good instrumentation in the Special Edition, I agree, but you haven't really enjoyed it until you play the older releases.

I'm also a big fan of Stan's theme. This is a rare arrangement found on the PS2 copy of Escape From Monkey Island. Ultimately they must have gone a different direction

This guy must have learned it from the PC speaker version.

 

Amazingly Resident Evil VII used the Stan theme for one of their central pieces of music

 

And you know, I always love world of fish, a true classic

And while we're at it, here's probably my all time favourite LucasArts track (outside of the Monkey Island theme itself I guess). It's actually rare because it's the Amiga version... and it's programmed to change every time LeChuck catches you. But the first section, before the instruments start to warp (ie. before LeChuck comes in), is the bit I love. I wish it went on for longer.

 

It's so weird and haunting, and perfect for what's going on in the game... (HOPEFULLY THE VIDEO WILL JUMP TO THE RIGHT SECTION -- Should be Under Dinky Island in the tunnels.)
