  1. World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. was the VG song of the 80s.

    I guess Final Fantasy VII's Prelude was the VG song of the 90s?

    Live and Learn was the VG song of the 2000s.

    And the VG song of the 2010s atm is...idk, Bonetrousle?

      Honestly if we're picking UT songs it might as well be Hopes and Dreams or Megalovania.

      I thought Escape from the City was the VG song of the 2000s.

      There's many good choices for 2010s... Megalovania? Last Surprise? Jump Up, Super Star? BFG Division? I dunno, I can't think back too far.

      I feel these become more and more "cult popular" rather than "popular popular" as the list goes down lol.  EVERYONE knows the Mario theme.  The same can't be said of the other three.  Not even sure if there IS a song from those eras that have that same worldwide appeal, apart from maybe Sonic 1's main theme for 90's?

      While I'll agree that the Super Mario Bros. Theme was the song back then but it wasn't always like that. In the UK it might have been either one of Rob Hubbard's stuff (Monty on the Run, Commando), Magical Sound Shower from Out Run or Martin Galway's Comic Bakery as the song of the 1980s. Seriously Comic Bakery got a lot of remixes and pops up in unlikely places during that time. Ever played Jurassic Park on the Game Boy? The first level theme IS Comic Bakery.

      90s is harder because it was like split into two halves (chiptune/Amiga era and redbook era). For the former, I go with Green Hill. For the latter not sure since it was when people started putting licensed songs into games and they are probably more well known than nearly all these songs put together. I always thought that One Winged Angel was the Final Fantasy VII song so I'll go for that, Facility from GoldenEye or Joyride from Grand Theft Auto in terms of popularity. Probably also a Super Mario 64 song too. Personally I would have loved to say Super Sonic Racing as that fits with the mid to late 90s like a glove with its cheesy Brit-pop.

      Oh, I forgot about DAAAYYYTOOONNNAAA. Let's Go Away. Yep.

      I can't recall many songs from the 2010s since for many games, it is either ambiance or orchestral movie style with a few exceptions being whatever Mick Gordon made, some indie games and the usual Nintendo/Sonic/Jake Kaufman stuff. I'll probably go for Megalovania as well, it fits with the indie game evolution that this decade had.
