Music.
I personally think (and deeply feel) that music is a powerful resource when it comes to make a game memorable; in short because it makes people feel many different kind of emotions which can drag you deeper into your gaming experience.

I found an old post about suggesting a top 20 (or 25) best OST from shmups, but what I intend to do here is more like a game: Every post you make should contain just ONE link to ONE track from any shmup which you find interesting for any reason and you want to share with this community just for the sake of sharing great music. Please, don't forget to always include the names of the shmup and the trackl; if necessary, the platform or version it belongs to as well.

Maybe this post turns out to be an alternate way to get to know more shmups too!

Having that said, I'll start.

This one here brings me back to my childhood days:
U.N. Squadron (SNES): Mission 1 - Front line base
Damn sweet composition!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:

Since this thread is getting some interest I decided to put all of the tracks posted into a YouTube playlist for you to enjoy anywhere you can!
I'll expand the playlist everytime we get to complete a full page in here (Or ultimately when the thread dies :( )

Thanks to everyone for making this possible and keep them coming!

The SHMUP music sharing game PLAYLIST

**At the moment there is a couple of tracks I couldn't add to the playlist since they're not YouTube links, here:
Valkyrius - Steel Titan
Fly to The Leaden Sky (Battle Garegga) metal arrange by Warinside
Koutetsu Yousai Strahl, by UP (I loved this one!)

Twinkle Star Sprites - Stage 7

Beautiful, steady flow. Hits me with a lot of nostalgia for some reason. Too bad I couldn't figure out the genre of it.

This was so good I didn't bother with anything else from that Reitaisai.

Nice to see so much good stuff already.

R-Type Leo may not be the pinnacle of the series but it's soundtrack is just so comfy.

Senko no Ronde - Grey Lips (Sakurako 2) - Yasuhisa Watanabe

Caught my attention when I was checking match videos before buying the game. Not necessarily the best song in the soundtrack but it's got a very catchy melody.

The Fire Shark / Same! Same! Same! OST is one that grows on you over time. Here's one of my fave tracks off it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzcyFLsLnow "Give Me Your Heart"
Not sure what it is about it...

The synths used are a bit ugly though. kinda wish they'd gotten Technosoft to program it, or something. lol.

About a year ago they removed "Fire Shark" from one cabinet near my office... :(

Anyway, back on topic:
Tyrian 2000 OST - 14 Gyges, Will You Please Help Me?
That must have been the first shmup I have ever played, well not the 2000 version actually...but an older one.

Kamui- Time of Our Demise/Final Hour (I believe one of those is the official track name)
http://youtu.be/-zUZmWe_fRY

I love this song because:
1) it has a Raiden vibe to it
2) it sends chills down my spine from the melancholy feeling of desperation that is associated with the game's story

Wow, Tyrian has surprisingly good music O_o
Is it worth actually playing it for that?

Lotta other good tracks here, too.
Here's another (which I'm sure most of you guys have heard at one point or another):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Su8UOs0SFA
"Bad Apple!!" from Lotus Land Story. Love the PC98 2hu music.

I don't even wanna touch this game until I've cleared and become competent at Ketsui.. and Daifukkatsu

I love the original theme but this arrangement just gives me chills baby!

Woah! Kamui seems like a cool shmup!

It's definitely not a bad shooter but I wouldn't dare to call it an awesome one, I really like it but mostly due to melancholic reasons. Still you can even play it from your smartphone, search for "OpenTyrian" (it's free!)

Here's another track from that game:

Tyrian 2000 OST - 08 Ending Number 1

I think "nostalgic" is the word you're looking for. Anyway, I love tyrian. It's one of the most immersive shmups I've played to date.

Also, I'm not sure you could call this a "game" when it's really just a thread to post shmup music in.

Blue Wish Resurrection Plus OST - Factory Invasion (Industrial Inside Remix)

All the BWR music is awesome, but stage 3 gets me so damned pumped.

Yes, my mistake.

That's arguable, but more importantly...where's the shmup music link you were supposed to post!?! xD jk
I guess you were expecting to find a link to some sort of weird game or something like that on this thread...I'm sorry if this disappointed you.
But if this makes you see the point of the thread differently...I am planning to build up a YouTube playlist of this and update it every time a page of this is completed, so everyone can enjoy the fruits of this collective effort later.

Back on topic:
Ketsui Kizuna Jigoku Tachi EXTRA - DEFENSIVE LINE-Lurking in the Darkness

Awesome arranged version!

I've always assumed that everything from his games is taken off of Cyber Rainforce's site (some of his music isn't even there anymore)

Anyway, I was actually referring to a forum game in that context.

...Probably betrays how little distance I've actually made it into this game, but whatever.

Gotta post one more.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHcKsmuSl5I
"Forbidden Fruit" from Mars Matrix.
I think it's my favorite of the OST. It's got a vaguely trip-hop kind of sound, and it really builds up the tension in a good way on the final stage. I've never made it this far myself :(
