Welcome to GamesRadar's daily blast of all things pertaining to the ever-growing field of game music. Each post will introduce new sounds, games, composers and fan-made remixes of gaming's greatest aural achievements.
Game: GoldenEye 007
Song: Control Station
Composer: Norgate, Kirkhope, Beanland
Last week Perfect Dark made the leap to Xbox Live Arcade, and judging by the review scores and general fan reaction, Rare's 10-year-old FPS still holds up. Perfect Dark was always billed as a spiritual successor to the N64 classic GoldenEye, which is how I plan to awkwardly segue into today's track.
GoldenEye was notable not just for its addictive and unparalleled multiplayer, but also its elaborate, stealth-heavy campaign that played like nothing else on the so-called "Fun Machine." This particular track is indicative of most of the game's music - freakishly upbeat and toe-tappingly catchy, not at all what you'd expect in a super-spy shoot 'em up.
If you're among the millions of former GoldenEye fans, be sure to check the GoldenEye: Source project that's updating the N64 original with fancy new graphics. Hopefully it's not yet another game that's shut down in the final hour.
