We've been warned many times over the last twelvemonth (maybe) that Towns 2 is ready to take over from Towns the Original. And with that, even its music will be supplanted. Of course we knew this, but with the helpful prodding from dev alerts, we're reminded that time draws ever nigh.

Having heard the music, yea, even before the drumbeat was added, for such a long time, I thought of it as Gaia's true theme. Fishing doesn't have music. Word Bump does, but the game is so generic. The Towns theme is simple but charming and completely inoffensive. It matches Gaia so well in my eyes. (Those of you who see a dark underbelly, what music would you choose?)

Has anyone captured Town's music for posterity? Will it be part of the Gaia Wiki?

And speaking of posterity -- will people upload clips of themselves standing in Towns 1 in front of their houses, as one more thing to show future newbies what they can never have?


EDIT: now that I am wandering around Towns 2, catching slow-moving bugs, it's easy to hear Towns 1 music buried in Towns 2. O_O

Youtube has a lot of gaia songs uploaded. Even the prom stuff, which is pretty good.

Word Bump's music reminds me of a popular song...

I'm trying to port house now...I see that one lovely Gaian (her) ^ is in Barton (Go Barton! User Image ), Sisky is in Gambino, reapersun in Durem, and another (gosh, I wish I could namedrop) Gaian in Aekea.

Lanzer, [NPC] Rufus, and other notables have not moved to Towns 2 yet.

Yes, that is very much the same! I guess lifting the first phrase or two of a song's intro doesn't count as copyright violation.

That song is great (and a decade old! I am so old!) and I'm surprised it has no dislikes.And I quite like the new Towns theme, it's catchy. I actually opened the feature up just so I could listen to it while I put up groceries earlier.

It's really script-heavy...I tried to port in on heavily-protected Firefox, no dice. Opened naked Chrome, and each Town loads just fine.
And if I open other windows for Aquariums, etc. the music slows way down. =L

Do you know if they actually are removing towns 1? Because I would it if they didn't...I use it to simply collect trash, bugs and flowers.
meh.

I use chrome, but it's still really bad on my computer. -__-

I was actually a fan of the town's Event music in the past. I can't recall how many years ago, but it had really nice themes for Christmas and Trick-o-treating.

Edit: Found a few videos on youtube.

Basic Theme
X-mas
Halloween

The old music was all right, the new music is super bland. I kinda hope they give us options like in Aquariums.

The new theme reminds me of the old theme so I like it enough.
It will drive me crazy. Just like the new one. I can't listen to that in the background for long without starting to think in it.
