Eric Whitacre is an extremely good composer, and I definitely suggest checking him out. Search for "Sleep" or "October".

Oh man I was not expecting to see one of my favorite composers mentioned in this thread. I've had the pleasure of hearing Lux Aurumque and Nox Aurumque live and it was one of the most goosebump inducing experiences I've ever had.

Eriks Esenvalds is another contemporary choral music composer that I love. This song feels like the embodiment of my childhood:

Is posting this 2 hours after Sunday is over a faux pas?

Don't care, it's a great song regardless:

Found out about him from our band teacher, as we played "Seal Lullaby" for a Christmas Concert one year and a spring one another. The Seal Lullaby has an interesting story to it, considering it was supposed to be used in a Dreamworks movie before it was canceled for a certain film called "Kung Fu Panda".

Anyway, to add another song to this topic:

I've actually hummed this when sweeping the floor at work a few times.

I recently finished Need for Speed: Carbon (a game I've had for years, but have never actually beaten), and I never realized it until not too long ago that a lot of the music from the game was actually made by real bands and artists. I always thought that it was music made for the game by EA. It was a neat discovery. Here's one of the songs that I really liked.

You never knew about licensed soundtracks?

Priestess is a good band, and Color Me Black is one of their standouts.

Here's another song by a band with a great name:

An underrated piece from an underrated game.

The main theme of Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction:

This was composed by Michael Giacchio, by the way.

Personally, I prefer video game music over mainstream music, too. The vast majority of my playlist is pretty much VG music.

Speaking of that, I've been listening to a lot of Castlevania tracks lately, and here's one I like a lot.

Also, this cover of Gang Plank Galleon is awesome.

If by "mainstream" you mean radio music and top 40 stuff, absolutely. No game music makes me want to blow my brains out quite like Imagine Dragons.

Except maybe Otherworld from FFX and the Chocobo theme from FFXIII-2. And the theme song for Yoshi's Story.

personally think most videogame music is trash

sometimes it's alright but it's mostly mindless background music or poppy garbage if it's trying to be trendy

Personally, I prefer the live version because it's absolutely insane how he plays that guitar, but both versions of this song are really great.
