Cue of the Week: “Ghostly Attractions”
The title of this week’s cue suggests supernatural romance, but in fact it references the Attract Mode of arcade games, wherein games attempt to lure in prospective players. The music here is therefore akin to a main title theme for a film, or perhaps a trailer.
(PC and console video games don’t have to curry your interest, since you’ve already paid for them and there’s no fight for your attention in a noisy arcade. Opening cinematics aside, their introductory music is often more atmospheric and subtle.)

Nice cue. I liked the occasional little high pitched ‘screeches’. I guess if it’s for the ‘attract’ mode, then it’s repeated again and again by the machine or console in the arcade.
