    Default Lavender town theme

    Did the lavender town theme ever freak you out as a kid?

    I don't believe it ever did. I was watching X-Files to begin with anyway, so I probably didn't even bat an eye at the music.

    Pokémon Tower's another story, though... at least the Marowak ghost anyway.

    Sort of. *shivers* I vowed to never play FireRed at night, because I lose sleep over things like that easily.

    Not really. The Lavender Town theme has always sounded more sad than scary to me.

    Sorry if we're not allowed to talk about this, but I have a feeling this is going to lead towards a Lavender Town Syndrome discussion.

    My apologies as well, but is that like Hinamizawa Syndrome?

    I actually don't know what that is, so sorry. ^_^'

    Anyways, Lavender Town Syndrome is a rumor that anyone who listens to the Orignal Lavender Town music will commit suicide because they get the game taken away when they've become addicted to the song. It's kind of hard to explain, so you should probably google it.

    Hinamizawa Syndrome=Higurashi. Sorry.

    Really? *shivers* That sounds horrible. Creepypasta reference?

    Not really. It was still downright odd either way. Also, good old Creepypasta.

    Not quite. I was sort of used to spooky music.

    No. Besides, there is volume control on the gameboy. Don't like it, turn it off.

    I've read two versions of it; one regards to the music having a higher pitch and whatnot and the other one is about when the game just starts. I must say the second one is pretty creepy XD

    On topic, though, I actually like the music very much. Not so in the 4th/3rd Gen remakes, but the GBC music from Crystal. I have no idea though how the music was from the 1st Gen.

    It's sort of a creepypasta. It had to do with there being high-pitched binaural beats.

    I did, as a child, rush through the lavender town section of the game and turned down the volume when i was there. But when I got older I started to really like the place and just listen to its tune...
    The most Superior Snivy. Left, good time here though. I loved this place.

    I heard there was actually 2 cases of children having hearing problems because they listened to the lavender town music (in gen 1 games) and the pitch cause problems.

    As a child, I thought nothing of it, but no haven seen creepy videos/read creepypastas on it, it gets iffy.

    It didn't creep me out or anything like that, but I admit, the theme's pretty sad and creepy at the same time. Sure I don't like it, but it kinda fits the place being home to a cemetery and all...

    It used to be too high pitched for my liking, so I would always have the volume very low. As I got older, I would keep the volume where I have it for the other towns and cities of the game.

    Not from what I can remember. I found it a bit annoying at times, but that's about it. Although I like it a lot better now compared to when I was younger.
    This is the future we made for ourselves
    But is it really the dream we wanted to live in?

    The present has to be treated as precious
    Or we will regret it when it has become the past...
