I am a huge fan of video game music. That's what i listen to the most nowadays. I have a pretty big collection.
I like all kinds of game music but Shmup as a genre is certainly not left in the cold when it comes to music!
I am really curious to know how much you guys care about shmup music and what are your favorites music tracks, or complete soundtracks if you dont feel so specific.
Choosing my best ones is hard as there are so many i love but here i selected a few to start the topic.

-Battle Bakraid - Steam Syndrome : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qplHAuL ... re=related
*The whole OST from Bakraid is a gem but this one has to be my favorite :D

- Raiden IV - Tragedy flame : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNhMGao3UJs
*Thats the game im playing now and im hooked partly because of the excellent music. This song is of course a remix from Raiden II. For once i like a remix more than the original.

-Soldier Blade - Final boss Duoss theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwS_7oF8EQ0&#t=3m13s
*This has to be the most badass boss music i know: "ILL KILL YOU !!"

- Gradius III - Cosmo plant (Snes Version) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nX-jg59-uvk
*I prefer the Snes version over the Arcade one. Once i had this song stuck in the head for like a whole week!

I could list a ton more but i'd rather wait and see what you guys like the best !!

I really like the DFK stage 5 song, the counterpoint really works for me I guess (other than that one song I like the DFK BL soundtrack a lot better than DFK) Also Garegga stage 1 is amazing but I'm not really sure why :)

Back in to the Machine from stage 5 of Chaos Field is definitely one of my favorites. I think the music from every game Kou Hayashi and Daisuke Nagata have composed for is simply phenomenal.

Darius! Garegga! Shitloads, really, but unfortunately I can't link to anything, as I'm stuck using the world's most limited web browser for the forseeable future. I did upload the Metal Black soundtrack (possibly my all-time favourite) to YouTube a few months ago, if you fancy getting your YACK on. :)

I can't stop listening to "Way Back That Was Shut" from Under Defeat, lately. I believe it was Hosoe's birthday recently, too, gawd bless 'im.

Ed: great choices, saucy! All definite favourites of mine, too. The loop in the Gun Frontier tune always makes me chuckle. :P

I dunno if it counts as good, but Agony definitely has suitable music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYxIJxqrv6U
Darius Gaiden has pretty astonishing music.

Why nobody brought this one up is unexplainable :

Mushihimesama Futari - Cry! Roar! (Last boss theme) followed by
Mushihimesama Futari - Beastial Beat (Normal boss theme)

I'm personally a big fan of adrenaline rushed boss themes: if it doesn't get my blood pumping during the fight I most likely feel slightly disappointed.

Zed Blade (Operation Ragnarok) - Termination 4 U
Namiki at his finest and to think this was one of his earlier works...

Crimzon Clover - Diabolos
One of my more recent favorites. CC is basicly filled with awesome boss themes and you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Cho Ren Sha 68k - Cookin' on the Hell
I remember the first time I reached the TLB and then this song started playing. Shit got real pretty fast.

Flame Zapper Kotsujin - E. N. K. A.
Feels good man.

Most of the music from earlier Touhou games (up to Imprerishable Night) are best shooting musics in my book. Apart from that ,

Raiden II first level music
Crimzon Clover Level 2 theme
Most music of first Dodonpachi
Progear music (especially level one and boss theme)
Espgaluda level 2
Blue Wish Resurrection (simple but good)
Samidare (awesome)
Twilight Insanity (level 3 and 4)

I know most people adore Dangun Feveron music , but I dont like it (one of the reasons I dislike that game apart from that "collect rolling man" stuff) at all. Matter of preference , not my cup of tea (or coffee you say in English ? :P )

ESPRADE (Raging decide and desperate schools)
Mushi Futari (Beastial Beat)
Crimzon Clover (Maelstrom and Diabolos)

It was really hard to pick my favorites from crimzon clover because most of the tracks are real quality.
Coincidentally my favorite shmups have my favorite music too. Boss music is the most important track in shmups in my opinion

One sountrack that hasn't been mentioned is the one from Xevious 3d/G.

Great work from the Namco team.

Edit: Can't forget Hosoe's work on Dragon Saber (including the hidden remixed Dragon Spirit tunes... the Volcano tune is my favorite)

DOJ anything really. Too hard to choose one track. Maybe stage 5, boss and TLB.
The boss music is especially fitting, when I think of "boss" now I think of that music. Very pumping, you also gotta love how the track changes midway, which sometimes corresponds (not always, though) with a change in pattern and it's awesome. Other than that, anything by namiki, his music is just fitting for shmups.

Darius gaiden, but again it's hard to choose 1 track. It's zuntata high point, trippy, moody and strange, just like darius is. Yet very catchy and melodic unlike g-darius (iirc).

For oldschool, Twin fucking Cobra. Play twin cobra in a room with someone who has no idea, chances are he'll like the catchy music.

Sakimoto stuff is good (RSG, IKA, souky) but just like his music in RPGs, it's great, sets the atmosphere well, but is also, at least for me, almost always forgettable. Maybe the tracks are too complex to remember. Maybe I prefer simpler melodies.

If I had to choose one track from Darius Gaiden, it'd probably be E.E.G. It manages to be upbeat and sort of sombre at the same time, if that doesn't sound too Ralph Wiggum. I could listen to it for an hour without tiring of it. Plays on some of the cooler stages, too. :)
