I Love That Song - Shoot the Core! PDF Print E-mail

Or just shoot everything that glows.

Today's Track is a remix from Dj Sharpnel: Gradius - Challenger 1985 (Stage 1)

Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly.

Gradius, one of the first Shoot 'em Ups back in the mid 80's, it surely made a trend for other games of its type.  And of course, something that truly strikes from Gradius is the soundtrack, so many songs have been remixed by many artists in many different styles, especially Challenger 1985 which is the iconic theme for the first stage of Gradius.  Also Dj Shapnel has some pretty great songs and his Gradius remixes are awesome, but I like this one the most.

While the original song is more calmed and slow, this one is very high paced which captures the spirit of Gradius going to space a really high speeds dodging bullets and enemies in path and also shooting them.  It's a really good remix and probably my favorite, since I use it when I play the game.

Until next time, Keep on shootin'!
