Best Of VGM #1: Streets Of Rage 2 “Go Straight”

Editor’s Note: this article was originally published last year before the big server crash. Thanks to a few incantations and dark magics, I have successfully raised it from six feet under… unfortunately, a few of the remixes were C&D’d off YouTube in that time. -Del.

Slow news day here and I am taking a respite from my speed playthrough of Suikoden II for an upcoming blog entry. In any case, I thought I’d share some remixes of the classic Streets of Rage 2 song “Go Straight.” I must be getting older because I am starting to say, “I remember when video game composers actually cared about music!”

Here’s the original, from the genius composer Yuzo Koshiro.

Remix 1

Remix 2

Remix 3 – note that nice use of a Chicago House snare drum.

All of these versions are pretty sweet. Do you have a favorite, Sega kids?
