Hello and welcome back to P-Vock's Music Box. I have been called out, it seems. My friend Joshua felt the need to call me out and create a playlist to go toe-to-toe against one of his own.
I gotta say, Joshua's had some gems. Some bangers. Good variety. It also had Billie Eilish so, in my opinion, mine is better by default just for not having that utter trash (sorry, I know music taste is subjective and all, so you do you and like whatever you like. But to me, her music is literal trash).
Give the link a click a click, or listen right from the embed if that's more your speed.
Go ahead, have a listen. You know what I'm about. You know what I like to talk about here. So, of course, my music choices are reflective of my desires. But, I wasn't just going to drop 13 tunes and call it a day.
Instead, I wanted to take you on an auditory journey, so I structured my playlist to be its own makeshift RPG from the menu, to the climax, to the credits. I also wanted to challenge myself and only use music from franchises I've discussed on this channel. This is not just a mini audio journey, but a collection of tracks I would have loved to discuss when talking about their respective franchises but chose other tracks instead.
If you're interested, I'd love to briefly explain them:
We open with a piece that depicts the yearning for better days. The dream of a peace we once had and must set out on a journey to obtain again.
And so, we steel ourselves and begin the journey with an ambitious and adventurous romp.
The first real battle begins, and we easily handle it with the smooth-yet-deadly grace of a raging tidal wave amidst the ocean.
Our reward for this first trial overcome is a chance to rest and recover in a sprawling hill scape with gorgeous scenery and a sense of freedom.
We are then met with a wicked and intense trek acting as a makeshift warm-up to the first truly tough challenge.
After that, we are prepared for the first time we really go to war. While not as easy as the first challenge, we meet this one with tenacity and overcome it.
Nothing can stop us as we reach this next location, a valley of trials we breeze through.
Our rival meets us. We swiftly defeat them, but at a cost.
A devastating loss was the cost of our victory, so we must regroup and restart if we are to see this journey through to the end.
We realize our destiny and set off once again.
If life is to truly, we must be ready. So, with renewed determination, we march on to the final challenge.
We meet our greatest foe and assault them like an apocalypse and, after an arduous battle, overcome.
We have found our resolve and resolved our issue. Battered and triumphant, we return home.
Okay, I know that was all completely ridiculous, but I couldn't help myself.
This damn thing was both a great chance to show some tunes I never got the chance to before and a fun challenge.
Go check out Joshua's excellent playlist if you haven't already, and I'll catch you back here next time with a fantastic suggestion from my Music Box that, hopefully, won't warrant another challenge.
And I firmly stand behind what I said about Eilish.
