Track: 1PM | Game: Animal Crossing | Composers: Kazumi Totaka, Kenta Nagata, Toru Minegishi, Shinobu Tanaka.

Animal Crossing, the game that was released twice in Japan before it was even considered to make the jump across the pond. And seriously, that was a bad idea... no one likes doing menial tasks for some animal "friends" that pretend to be stupid, when in reality they're just lazy. But somehow Animal Crossing makes it fun! And then it did it again when it was released on the DS, and again on the Wii, and again on the 3DS... it's a vicious cycle! This song is extracted from that moment when the short hand of the clock hit's the number 1 for the second time in a day, once that happens a mob of cute meowing cats invade the world, just like in that Futurama episode.


Forgotten Cadences examines the less celebrated, but always unusual sounds of video game music.
