  1. A fine episode, sir! I enjoyed all the tracks, as well as Spooky Rob’s contributions to the episode. Plus I received a sense of satisfaction when I deciphered ‘fillem’ was actually film. 😉

    In subsequent years, you may consider tracks from Super Castlevania IV for the ‘snez'(some of us Yanks say it that way as well), and Pulseman for the Mega Drive. The latter has some fantastically creepy gamalan-sounding tunes. For my money though, no 8 or 16-bit music sounds quite as creepy or disturbing as Pokemon Red/Green’s Lavender Town music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbYSM05jDyE They actually changed the music a little after some kids committed suicide after listening to that track (that the two are related is disputed, but it’s an eerie coincidence nonetheless).

    1. hello! oh yes, ‘fillem’ – two syllables! whilst i feel like i pronounce it fairly normally myself (or do i?!), ‘fillem’ is a regional (county durham) accent thing, i think. well done on working that one out!

      that ‘lavender town’ tune is quite famous, yes. i read all sorts of things to do with there being such intensely unpleasant high frequency activity on the track that it drove kids to suicide in japan… i believe it has all been discredited, with the track getting changed simply because it sounded horrific on headphones, but as urban legends go it’s a pretty fantastic one.

      super castlevania iv is a fine shout, and something that i might consider should i do another spooky special! actually, if it’s more snezzz music you’re after on the show, you might just be in luck come the start of november…!

      thank you for listening, it’s always a real thrill to hear from someone who has enjoyed an episode!
