View Full Version : Favourite tunes...

What would be your favourite tunes of all time from each of the MI games? I guess mine would be:-

MI1:- Melee Island Map theme, LeChuck's Theme, Ghostship Theme, Love Theme, Voodoo-Lady's theme.

MI2:- Largo's Theme, Kate Capsize/Booty Island Theme, Fish Fry, LeChuck's Lament, Escape from LeChuck's Fortress, Underground Tunnels 1,2+3. End Theme, Stabbing Largo, Jojo the Monkey Theme.

CMI:- Rollercoaster of Death, Duelling Banjos, blood Island's Clearing Theme, The Ship Song, Main Theme.

EMI:- Herman's Theme, Charles L Charles Theme, Mansion Theme, Marco De Polo's Theme, Monkey Kombat Theme, Church of Lechuck Theme.

There's prolly a few that I forgot to add, but they're my most listened to themes.

First of all, I like the main theme song for all the MI games. But here are my favorites.

SOMI- The SCUMM Bar, used ship emporium, and the circus.

LCR- Voodoo Lady, LeChuck's mansion

CMI- Nearly all, especially pirate ships(if there is a tune)

EFMI- Church of LeChuck, Lucre Island, Jambalaya Island, Planet Threepwood

There's more, but I can't remember any.

Oh, and if some of these don't have tunes, they should, and they should probably be some good tunes.

SOMI - main theme
LCR - whislte in the beginning
CMI - banjo tune at difficulty sreen
EMI - music at Deadeye Dave's place

08-23-2002, 10:37 AM
Changes all the time for me, but...

MI1 - Main theme, Monkey Island Map

MI2 - Anything on Phatt Island, Dinky Island, Largo's Theme

CMI - Barbery Coast, Puerto Pollo, Blood Island Map

I love all the MI songs! I truly think that MI has the best music of any game I have ever played! I wish that they would make a Monkey Island Soundtrack!

btw, does anyone have the notes for some MI songs? It would be great if I could play them!

Yo, Thanks A Million!!!

btw, Rem, are you in charge of the scummbar!? And if you are, why did you get rid of your old sign with the scull and the spit!?

08-23-2002, 11:49 AM
The sign will make a comeback soon, in a smaller version.

Theres also some extra sheetmusic on the Imuse site. *looks* Yep, hold on I'll find the site.

....... ..... ... .


Hope that helps.

MI1 - I dunno.

MI2 - Hmm... Scabb Island overview, Rapp Scallion's theme, Governor Phatt's music (I can't remember which one was best... either outside or inside the mansion, but I don't think the one in his room was as good), Phatt Waterfall, LeChuck's fortress (both the hanging theme and the one that starts when Guybrush climbs out of the box), underground tunnel music.

CMI - Rollercoaster of death

08-23-2002, 04:59 PM
MI1 - Theme
MI2 - Theme, Jojo, almost everything...
CMI/EMI - Can't remember any of it.

*Glances over at RemiO before she gets banned for advertising useful sites*

Well, If you look about on Imuse's site, theres a -lot- of excellent remixs/fan created MP3's and midis on there that actually leave you with a tune stuck in your head all day.

If you ever get the chance to have a browse through it, its worth it. Besides, WoMI, Scummbar and co are on the same server. Most fans have some sort of creativity.

(I'm alllowed to direct to resorceful sites, right?)

08-23-2002, 11:05 PM
Please do. I quite like iMuse Island - they have a great Clint Bajakian interview there among other things. There's no one-stop Monkey Island site on the net, which again probably is good, as each site can concentrate on various aspects of the series (be it music, interviews, fan art, animations, in-game jokes, whatever). We try to have a little of everything at TSB, but obviously news and features/interviews are our strong points. Plus we'll be diving more into fanwork in the next few months.

THE COOK CHASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And also that mad music that comes on inside the antiques shop on Booty Island.

The music when the trap is sprung inside LeChuck's fortress is great, too, as is most of the music in the tunnels and at the end of the game.

I once went on a holiday to Canada. In the house I stayed in there was one of those pianos that arenít actually pianos. Meaning, you put in a tube of special paper with holes in it, and pedaled quickly for it to play the music seemingly on itís own. Of course, you could play it the traditional way as well, but that was no good for a person like me with no musical talent :)

Anyway, one of the tubes you could play was very similar to that antiques shop music. So I presume that they based the music on another song, a bit like what they did with the World Of Fish music.

Organs do have pedals!

09-06-2002, 04:12 PM
I mean pedals which you have to actually pedal in order to get some music out of it.

I haven't heard any of the music in the first three games, only EMI. And my favorite would be Deadeye Dave's place. That's really the only music I remember too.

The only game that could come close to having as good as music would be Shenmue 1/2
