For some reason, Disney has seen fit to suddenly release a whole bunch of The Simpsons music on streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. To the surprise of loyal fans, this includes the full soundtrack to the groin-grabbingly good PS2 adventure, The Simpsons: Hit & Run.
The beloved open world platformer released all the way back in 2003, featuring a handful of sizeable sandboxes that let you explore various regions of Springfield. These all feature their own music, of course, and as the story progresses, the score adjusts to suit what's going on. The Halloween stretch of the game springs to mind, for example. Moreover, different music would play depending on which character you were using.
The result is that there's a tonne of music; the OST on Spotify is split across seven "discs", totalling just over two hours. It's great that it's available in such a complete way.
Recently, there have been murmurings about a remake of the cult classic. Fans have wanted this for a long time, and one of the original developers expressed his interest in the project too. While there's no telling if this is in active development, at least fans can listen to the game's soundtrack whenever they want.
