SEGA Arcade Soundtracks Now Available on Spotify!

Posted by HLD 30 JANUARY 2017


Let’s talk arcades really quickly. Whenever the topic of our favourites comes up in conversation in the office, one discussion that’s never far away is the music that accompanied those classics! We bopped our heads along to Magical Sound Shower from Outrun, we tapped our feet to Guile’s theme from Street Fighter II amongst others.

We have Outrun 2 set up in the showroom, and the familiar melodies the game makes is always fresh in our minds, so imagine the delight when we discovered that none other than SEGA themselves have taken it upon themselves to put some of our all-time favourite arcade and game soundtracks onto Spotify for us (and of course you) to enjoy!

The free music streaming service is now how to a number of official soundtracks to listen to absolutely free! Some of the great soundtracks that can be found include and of course the Yu Suzuki classic Outrun. The full list of albums (at the time of writing) includes the following:
