Well, It's hard to believe but It's already been a year since OriginalGameScores.com went live. In that time we went from a small 200 visits per month, to over 2,000 per month! I'm so glad that we are able to make finding video game music easier for both gamers and those who may not play many video games but love the music.
It's so interesting to see which albums receive the most download clicks.. I personally didn't think anything would come close to the Smash Bros. Brawl album we uploaded a year ago but It's unbelievable how many downloads Super Mario Sunshine has received, and occasionally we'll get an e-mail saying something like "Thanks for uploading, I couldn't find this anywhere." As some of you may know, Sunshine is the only recent Mario game that never had an official album release, so we had to rip the games music files to upload it. What still baffles me, is why Nintendo hasn't allowed their music to be purchased from online distributors or perhaps from their own online store? It should be pretty obvious by now that we love the music they create and would be willing to pay for it but yeah, I still don't understand it.
On a sad note(for me personally), the album with the least amount of downloads is *Drumroll* The Darkness.. followed by No More Heroes :( Come on guys, these are fantastic albums, give them some love!
I hope that we continue to help video game music to become discovered. I also love hearing that somebody took video game music along to piano or guitar lessons and then reading the positive responses from their music teachers, It's fun stuff.
We have plenty of albums that need our attention to convert, sort, label and upload so we're gonna get back to that ;)
Happy 4th of July everybody!
