Oh, so hard to choose. It's all really good and really memorable.

The two you chose are definitely up near the top, but then so is the festival music (both tunes) and the scrimshaw music. Really, I love it all. The music carries a lot of nostalgia for me too, especially in Rubacava's case.

I've made a playlist with my most favorite tune at the beginning and my least favorite at the end.

1. Companeros
2. Rubacava
3. Casino
4. Ninth Heaven
5. This Elevator is Slow
6. Hi-Tone Fandango
7. Gambling Glottis
...
32. Domino's in Charge

But even the last one still does the trick

Blue Casket Bop off the official soundtrack but if we're including all the music in the game then Tube Room .

Compaņeros for me. I remember when I had finished the game for the first time and had to go outside to clear my mind from the experience. When I came back, I went online and found a download of that song. As I listened to it, all the good GF momens flooded back to my mind. It really was a very intense experience. Even today I have to stop everything else and just listen if I put that song on. For me, the soul of GF is in Compaņeros.

I'm listening to GF as I'm typing this.. not just the official tunes but also the other ones. On The Ledge is a lovely one. It's kind of hard to describe, but this tune gives me a fuzzy feeling; Manny is on the roof of a building with only a group of pigeons. He's surrounded by other tall buildings but the moment before this one there weren't any other characters.. such a large city with all those buildings, and at that moment in that place, it seems as he's the only one around.

Ah, Grim Fandango. I want this music at my funeral

Ha, then I'll die before you do, so mine is way more original!

Btw, the tune I meant before was On The Roof. But the feeling I described is nearly the same as On The Ledge, because the location it took place at is nearly the same. Tall buildings, noone around, etc.

I don't know, think it needs some texture on the left, seems so empty and out of context with just Manny and Glottis sitting there. Try orienting the lighting to be in sync with the lighting on Manny and Glottis, the whitish areas appears to be generated by a lamp out of frame to the right of the picture.

Looks good! though I'd like to see a cover that includes your crazy avatar, it'd probably suit the Bonewagon track the best.

For me, descending to most favorite:

happy, uppidy songs:
Hi-Tone Fandango
Rubacava
Neon Lodge

mellow songs:
Manny's Office
Mr. Frustration Man

sad song and all time personal favorite:
Blue Hector

And after hearing Frenkieee talk about On The Roof has got my curiosity peaked to hear the game rip soundtrack now.

My favorite is either Neon Ledge or High Tone Fandango. Since I now listen to those songs on a regular basis on my cell phone. I love High Tone Fandango since it really suits the mood when Manny is walking up to his club

Ok,I'm trying to find a image that will be adequate to the image to the left.
I will fix the lightning pattern on the image so the lightning will be focused on Manny and Glottis,from the upper angle,and maybe find a place to put avatar
Anyway thx for tips

Maybe an other cool image for your cover is a shot of Manny and Glottis in the Calavera Cafe, I always liked that view.

Or maybe this one:

I have to say that after thinking about it long and hard, Neon Ledge is still my favorite song...it's just so...awesome. I mean, I've played jazz before, but even though I don't play the instrument, trumpet ballads like that are always my favorite, and this is no exception.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
