JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Capcom Fighter If there is one thing that JoJo's Venture has over its update, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, it is in the Opening Theme, which the home ports of the latter kept.
The inspiring theme of the main hero, Jotaro Kujo.
The elegant theme of the only reason girls play this game, Noriaki Kakyoin.
The heroic theme of the our favorite French Butt Monkey, Jean Pierre Polnareff. It's so good it's remixed in the GioGio game.
The next thing you will say is: "The daredevil theme of Battle Tendency JoJo, Joseph Joestar". The daredevil theme of Batt...!?
The I-Don't-give-a-damn theme of the Team Pet jackass Iggy.
I, Dio, have a theme superior to everyone's else because I, Dio, am a boss of this game.
As an addendum to the above, Shadow DIO's splendidly creepy theme as well.
The game has an expectedly awesome opening.
The first episode episode ends, and instead of the usual J-pop, we get "Roundabout" by Yes. Awesome.
The second episode starts, and for the opening we get Sono Chi no Sadame! (JOOOOOOOOOOOOJO~) . The Ultra-Manly song the likes of which we seldom we see today outside of tributes to the Eighties.
The anime version of Phantom Blood is no slouch in the music department, with a score that combines both orchestral music and a little bit of rock.
The Battle Tendency arc has a great soundtrack in general. It was done by Ta ku Iwa saki, who is practically a CMOA factory, complete with tracks by Lotus Juice:
Bloody Stream by Coda. Not as manly as the first OP, but it makes up for it by being FABULOUS.
Overdrive, essentially THE Theme of Battle Tendency.
Oh, Please, the badass preview music.
Owner of a Lo-, oh sorry, wrong track. WELCOME TO THE WORLD.
Fields of Fright for heavy moody scenes like the preparations for the chariot race.
Rubicon, for Santana's killing spree.
Elephant Talk 1 and 2, for Pillar Men fights.
II mare eterno nella mia anima. CAEEEEESAAAAAAAAARRR!
Propaganda, BECAUSE THIS GERMAN THEME SONG IS THE GREATEST IN THE WORLD!
Burning Colosseum, for when Wham unleashes his ultimate technique, the Holy Wubstorm.
Avalon, for Cars' ascension.
Awaken, my masters!, the Pillar Men's Leitmotif.
I'm In Control. The next thing you're going to say is "This song is awesome!"
Season: " Don't you cry, my sweetheart."
The OP for Stardust Crusaders, STAND PROUD, is just as excellent as the other two openings, while being SEVERAL TIMES AS MANLY.
And the new ED theme? None other than "Walk Like An Egyptian" by The Bangles.
There's also Stardust Crusaders that first plays during the credits of Episode 2, before "Walk Like An Egyptian" took its place from Episode 3 onward. Luckily, it can be heard during certain episodes and let's just say that any time this theme starts playing, the scene it accompanies is definitely a Moment Of Awesome. Also appears to have cemented itself as the signature theme of part 3's Jojo, Jotaro Kujo and Star Platinum.
"Virtuous Pope", an uplifting, heroic tune which plays for Kakyoin's and Polnareff's times in the spotlight. When this plays, you just know that the tables are gonna be turned on the bad guys.
Setting Off. While it may feel a bit out of place for Jojo, it's nonetheless beautiful and calming.
While it may have been crappy enough to never be released on DVD, the Phantom Blood movie at least had a pretty cool theme song.
