PSA: Some of Sega's best soundtracks just hit Spotify

Magical sound shower.

Want to improve your working week, and make this Thursday truly special? All you've got to do is head to Spotify and search for the artist 'SEGA', then let happiness wash over you.

A series of amazing soundtracks from the company's heyday have recently hit the streaming service (thanks for the heads-up, Rising Star Games' Mart Mathers), with the full and frankly incredible backing for Nights Into Dreams as well as the complete works from Out Run, OutRun 2 and OutRunners. There's even some Virtua Fighter in the mix, and while you're there you may as well go back and listen to the Skies of Arcadia score.

Personally I've been listening to the Nights soundtrack on loop for the past 48 hours, and despite the grim winter weather and the even grimmer news out there it's convinced me that everything is okay. Everything is going to be alright.
