LucasArts Musicians Honored at Game Audio Network Guild's Audio Awards

Funk songs about funnel cake have finally gotten their due. Last night at its fifth annual Audio Awards, the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) honored LucasArts Audio Lead David W. Collins and Composer Jesse Harlin with the award for “Best Original Vocal Song – Pop” for their work on Thrillville’s “Dr. Kunkle’s Funnkel Cake.” The songwriting team’s ode to Parliament-Funkadelic -- and funnel cake! -- took top honors, placing Thrillville’s soundtrack among the company of previous winners such as Kingdom Hearts, Max Payne 2 and Katamari Damacy.

“We’re thrilled...pun intended,” said Collins. “The nominating board and the voters for the G.A.N.G.awards are all game audio industry professionals. It’s really special for us to be honored like this by our peers.”

“Both of us are really proud of the fact that our music is such a big part of this new franchise and appreciate the great support and encouragement we’ve received from all those here at LucasArts,” added Harlin. “Fortunately, we still have a few more tricks up our sleeves.”

I'll never look at funnel cakes the same ever again.

Good music does make games better.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Yes...this can also be said for a game like Grim Fandango...which should've gotten like 50 music awards for its outstanding soundtrack.
