The best Faulconer tunes?

Post by SuperCyan2 » Thu Mar 22, 2018 2:04 pm

Being a fair person that I am, I've grown to like quite a lot Faulconer tracks that they (it was a group, not just Bruce) composed for FUNimation's Dragon Ball Z dub.

My picks:

- Dragon Ball Z Movie/Series Theme
- Super Boo Theme
- Super Saiyan 3 Goku Theme
- Super Saiyan Vegeta Theme
- Majin Vegeta Theme
- Perfect Cell Theme
- Title Screen Theme

To be honest, none of these songs remind me of Dragon Ball Z but musically speaking, they sound pretty fucking epic!

Hate Vegeta, but love his theme song, Hell's Bells.

Buu's theme is by far the best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woHtuw_xtcc

Then Ginyu transformation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nF12Vf_IfBU


I tried listening to the rest but it either made my ears bleed or all ran together as the same thing.

You named quite a few of the ones i like. Other than those, I'd probably just have to say any of Boo's theme music and whatever the name of the song that plays for Vegeta's Final Flash.

I've always loved the Spirit Bomb theme:

I could list more but it would take too long.

My Favourites :

- Vegeta's theme/Hell's bells
- Gohan's Anger
- Perfect Cell's theme
- Hyperbolic Time Chamber theme
- Gohan fights Frieza theme
- Super Saiyan Vegeta theme
- I've forgotten what it's called, but it plays at this video at 0:15

Never really cared much for the SS3 theme.

Despite my love for the Kikuchi score, I think that the Falconer score does individual character themes waaaay better.

Other tracks that stand out for me are
Dr. Gero’s theme
Garlic Jr’s Theme
Imperfect Cell theme

Anything with Scott Morgan's awesome guitar work. That would include the majority of Garlic Jr themes such as the Dead Zone and the Makyo Star. The Howling and the Devastation theme (including all remixes of it from the Android and Buu arcs) are pretty awesome too.

Other favourites are Vegeta's Big Bang Attack on 19 and the Hyperbolic Time Chamber theme (the short one, that is really just a few synth drum sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyB4iT02O9k). Cell and Piccolo Face Off has that epic opening that always gives me chills down my spine.

One thing I love about the Faulconer score is how unique it really is, from ripping guitar themes, to meditation music with birds and nature chirping in the background. Good stuff.
My favourite art style (and animation) outside Toriyama who worked on Dragon Ball: Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, Masaki Satō, Minoru Maeda, Takeo Ide, Hisashi Eguchi, Katsumi Aoshima, Tomekichi Takeuchi, Masahiro Shimanuki, Kazuya Hisada
