Opera x Video Game Music OTP

Postby Rockythechao » 3 months ago

So long story short, some stuff happened and we started posting video game music with opera singing in it in the All the Sonics thread. I figured it'd be a shame to leave that collection buried in that thread, so let's move it here! I've compiled all of the tunes shared in the initial discussion in this OP, but if anyone has any other examples that aren't listed here please feel free to post them here. {EDIT: From now on, especially if you're posting a Nintendo track or music from another takedown-happy corporation, I ask that you mention the name/context of the song (or at least copy the name of the video) as well so if the embed ever breaks people can still hunt down the music.}
Rockythechao wrote: Opera vocals, especially the One-Woman Wail, are pretty versatile and can help add a tragic, ominous, or haunting/unsettling quality to music, make it more dramatic or theatrical, convey things like affluence or poshness, power, egotism, unpredictability, etc.
So yeah, spoiler warning, this is a fairly common musical trope for final boss fights and dramatic moments so there's going to be a lot of those in here! The videos in this initial post are spoiler-tagged for compactness but the names are unmarked, and I can't guarantee even that much for any responses. Proceed with caution!


THE INITIAL LIST
Sonic CD (Japanese/European soundtrack): The Final Fever
Final Fantasy VI: Maria and Draco Opera (suggested by Ashan)

Portal 2: Cara Mia Addio (suggested by 10204307)

Resident Evil series: Theme of Alexia
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night: Enchanted Banquet
Pokemon Sun & Moon: Lusamine Battle Theme
LittleBigPlanet 2: Victoria's Laboratory
Nier: Automata: A Beautiful Song
Skullgirls: VS Bloody Marie
Hollow Knight: City of Tears
Kid Icarus: Uprising: Chaos Kin leitmotif
Henry Hatsworth: Banson's Aria

THE SECOND WAVE
Batman: Arkham Asylum: The Perfect Crime (submitted by The Hero Hartmut)
Bloodborne: Suite (main menu theme) (submitted by Ashan)
Heroes of Might and Magic II soundtrack (submitted by Voltgloss)
The Dark Spire soundtrack (submitted by Voltgloss)
BlazBlue Calamity Trigger: Awakening the Chaos (submitted by Super Llama)

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Brawl's main theme

The entire plot of Gabriel Knight 2 is about a lost Wagner opera,

which is of course played near the end of the game (massive spoilers of course)

This one has tiny bits of solo opera singing but the vast majority of the track layers a thick choir behind the wailing to the point where it's barely perceptible and that annoys me (not too much though, this remix is still great)

With the recent death of BrawlBRSTMs, you're gonna have to find new embeds for this thread.

Also if you're posting the GaMetal remix you're gonna have to post FamilyJules's take too, long live vg remixers
convenient noise thread for stress-relief purposes

Oof, yeah. Thankfully it looks like we didn't lose too much, but just in case I've added a request to the OP:
{EDIT: From now on, especially if you're posting a Nintendo track or music from another takedown-happy corporation, I ask that you mention the name/context of the song (or at least copy the name of the video) as well so if the embed ever breaks people can still hunt down the music.}
I've replaced the broken embeds and edited the names into my posts accordingly, and if folks who haven't already done the latter could do so at their earliest convenience that would be greatly appreciated.
