It took me 5 minutes to find something legendary on youtube!)

Donkey Kong Country

Jungle Island theme If you've never heard this… sucks for you.
Bonus Room Theme
Aquatic Ambiance
Mine Cart Madness
Ice Cave Chant
Gang-Plank Galleon One of the best Boss Battle music's ever.

Donkey Kong Country 2 - Diddy Kong's Quest

Jib Jig
Bayou Boogie
Forest Interlude
Stickerbrush Symphony
Krook's March
In a Snow Bound Land
Mining Melancholy <-- Wow.

Super Smash Bros Brawl

Stickerbrush Symphony - Brawl Version
Gang-Plank Galleon - Brawl Version
Glad I was able to introduce you to some new music. That was my only mission in this thread and I have succeeded. Just a question though, and this goes out to everyone here, did any of you check out ocremix.org? I feel bad advertising on here but they honestly do have some amazing remixes. I've only listened to a couple outside of the Donkey Kong Country games, but I know for a fact that the ones I did listen to, were simply amazing. They've got a great bunch of people over there that do some crazy work. Anybody who loves video game music should definitely check it out.

Also, I know I forgot the jungle island theme. I was basically just posting the ones that I figured not everyone has heard and I figured even if you haven't played the games (which are froodlenutzkieing amazing btw) you still would have heard it somewhere.

One thing I've been meaning to post in this thread:

Halo: Reach's soundtrack was... forgettable. Halo 1, 2, & 3 all had a memorable soundtrack, or at the very least, one song in particular that stood out for that "awe" moment. Reach... didn't. Saddening.


Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.


Goodbye HIH. I will always love you. I hope the day comes when I can delete this from my signature. That'll mean we're back in business.

You'll always have a special place in my childhood and in my heart.

-Shoe

@laser: As much as music from games such as Tony hawk or any sports related game can be enjoyable, I won't be adding any to this thread simply because the songs aren't OST made specifically for the game. But yes, I did enjoy freeriding in Crazy Taxi with offspring blasting over and over.

To me, it doesn't matter whether music was made specifically for a game. If it fits, it fits.

I actually find this pretty surprising. I thought I remembered you really liking the more atonal stuff and this piece is very upbeat and melodic.

Also, this thread has come along extremely well. I will still try to find some time to remember to add a few myself one of these days.

Lost Woods is indeed an exception to my usual tastes. For every LW, I also like 10 Twilit Bloats.

I gotta give a shout-out to the Project Gotham Racing 2 soundtrack. I played the heck out of that game, both online & offline.

The soundtrack is massive. The majority of the tunes are pretty good, but these 6 really caught my attention:

Jeannie - Yo Yo Sisters
Gangsta Blac - Gitty Up Bout Ya Hog
Gangsta Blac - Run Up On It
Sir Mix-A-Lot - 2 Horse
Stendal Blast - Wo fuehrt das hin?
Unheilig - Maschine

EDIT: The only non-Extreme Dance Dance Revolution track that I really like. (It's from 5th Mix)

I originally mentioned FamilyJules7X in my comeback thread, but I suspect that he got lost among all the other content.

So here he is again, the #1 Nintendo 64 guitar medley (plus other tunes) man on YouTube!!!

My top 3:

1. Perfect Dark
2. Shooting Gallery
3. Route 4
