Luke's top tier Street Fighter 5 theme sounds even better after the CAP-JAMS treatment

Not only is he one of the strongest and most fun to play characters in Street Fighter 5, but 45th and final character, Luke, also boasts one of the best themes in the game.

To make things even better we have CAP JAMS, Capcom's internal band comprised of members of their sound team, playing their arrangement of this groovy tune for you today.

Luke's character theme is carried wonderfully along by a baseline that just plain slaps. This is the instrument I think I notice most often as I hear his tune (which is often as I've been playing only him since he dropped last month) and it gives the piece a particular funk that is very much appreciated.

This arrangement differs a bit from what you'll hear in the game as it goes a little heavier with the synthesizers and spices things up with extra guitar action.

If I were to try to classify the two, I'd say his main theme feels much more like a good background tune while the CAP JAMS version commands a little more direct attention.

Check out CAP JAMS' version right below thanks to the Street Fighter YouTube channel, and then let us know in the comments what you think and how much fun you're having with Luke.
