We need your help to vote games music into the Classic FM Hall of Fame 2012; with your support we can help see Aerith’s Theme hit the top spot!
Voting for the Classic FM 2012 Hall of Fame is now open – this run down of the 300 greatest pieces of classical music features compositions from the greatest composers in history along with fantastic movie scores, BUT, it’s never featured any orchestral tracks from video games.
From now until voting closes on Feb 29th we want all fans of video games to visit the voting site at http://www.classicfmhalloffame.co.uk/ and vote for classical interpretations of their favourite bits of video game music.
To make a real splash, we’re asking everbody to use one vote for Nobuo Uematsu’s “Aerith’s Theme” from Final Fantasy VII so we can really push it up the chart – and for anybody who wants a reminder of what that sounds like; http://store.ffdistantworlds.com/track/aeriths-theme-final-fantasy-vii
This is a UK radio station, but voting is open worldwide so please let everybody you know who loves video game music to come “like” this page, FOLLOW US ON TWITTER – @ClassicVGMusic and vote.
Let’s get video game music the recognition it deserves and follow the two steps below:
If you haven’t taken a look yet, or voted even, then I’m hoping you can take two minutes out of your day to do the below and vote in some games tracks – Aerith’s Theme by Nobuo Uematsu is one we’d like everybody to vote for, but there are strong pushes for Dragonborn (Theme from Skyrim) by Jeremy Soule and Baba Yetu (Theme from Civ IV) by Christopher Tin going on as well – why not vote for all three!
1: Go to www.classicfmhalloffame.co.uk and vote for you three favourites bits of orchestral video games music. Pieces have to be orchestral and commercially released to count.
2: Hopefully make one of the pieces Aerith’s Theme by Nobuo Uematsu. You’ll need to MANUALLY ENTER this in the voting box – hit the “+” button next to the voting box. “Final Fantasy VII (Soundtrack)” is already in the database, but for now we’re advising people to still enter Aerith’s Theme MANUALLY.
By Voting you will also enter a random draw to win an iPad2
