It’s that time of the year for 25 days of holiday VGM covers and remixes!

Like last year’s episode #48, we’re playing all the tracks that were featured across Instagram and TwiX (Twitter/X) in order, from Day One to Day Twenty-Five. While most of the tracks were from Overclocked Remix, some were culled from YouTube and suggestions from Discord.

Overclocked Remix is an organization that preserves and promotes video game music as an art form. They have an extensive catalogue of covers, remixes, and arrangements of music from individual musicians and several collaborations. Be sure to check them out at their website and their YT channel.

May your Christmas be merry and bright and your holidays be happy and wholesome this year!
