Game Music Composers in the Top 300 (Classic FM)

ClassicFM

Classic FM is the only 100% classical music radio station in the UK.  Every year, they hold a poll to select Britain’s favorite pieces of classical music, listing the top 300 selections on their web site.  Over 100,000 people voted in this year’s poll. The final results include music from video games – 11 out of the 300 compositions are pieces of video game music, including three pieces that won places in the top 20.  To celebrate, I’ve gathered together some YouTube videos presenting the famous video game music that was voted into the top 300 in Classic FM’s poll.  I hope you enjoy it!
