Tips for Buying EarthBound

May 21st, 2009 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 1

Many fans know all about the various official MOTHER 1, 2, and 3 soundtracks, but MOTHER series music has also appeared on other CDs.

One such CD was the Famicom Best Music Selection, released in the early 90s. One of the songs included was this remix of Eight Melodies, which not people know about. It’s pretty weird and has a sound that definitely has that feel of 90s Japanese “trying too hard to be cool” music. Which I also associate with late 80s/early 90s American music 😛

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

(MP3 download)

I think there was another MOTHER 1 song on this CD, I’ll post it another day though.

I like it! 😀

Zai said on May. 22, 2009

I actually had this remix already… there’s some weird lyrics towards 2:30 that sounds very odd indeed, especially if you try to figure out what they’re saying.

Big A2 said on May. 22, 2009

Oh my… that’s terrible.

Is it bad to like it? It’s so corny and upbeat it’s good!

Bowser said on May. 22, 2009

I like it, there are some interesting parts.

Wewt said on May. 22, 2009

Sounds funky 😀

Halfsan said on May. 22, 2009

Reminded me of Mario Paint! XD It was pretty cool, yet very odd.. though that’s to be expected when it comes to EarthBound.

IWontGetOvertheDam said on May. 22, 2009

Woah! Don’t copy that floppy!


Melody! Don’t copy that melody!

sticktendo said on May. 22, 2009

If it wasn’t trying to be Eight Melodies, I’d like it.

EarthBoundRules said on May. 22, 2009

The sound effects don’t even fit the Eight Melodies tune at all. Everything seems so out of place.

JamesBond007 said on May. 22, 2009

The singer have many mushrooms on his head. It sucks. 🙁

LucasTizma said on May. 22, 2009

LOLOL I keep expecting Will Smith to jump in with the lyrics to “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”

Poe said on May. 22, 2009

This song thrust me back to 1992, what the hell.

Shuey said on May. 22, 2009

That is the most amusing eight melodies I have ever heard. I like it.

I agree with LucasTizma. Ninten must be Will Smith in disguise.

Pimpshi said on May. 22, 2009

As nauseating as that sounds, it’s kinda neat in its own way. Still, good lord…

Dale said on May. 22, 2009

*shudder* Oh, the early 90s… I must say, one of the worst times for music in general. This song is hilariously good though.

Jotokun said on May. 22, 2009

Well, the 90s weren’t that bad because it did give us grunge music…

Half of me’s laughing, and the other half of me is crying after listening to this.

Lightman135 said on May. 22, 2009

This is so badass. 😉

Millhouse said on May. 22, 2009

Y’all this is a story, all about how,
my life got flipped, turned upside down, and i’d like to take a minute,
just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became to be known as the prince of a town called Bel-Air.

All from memory, ain’t I good?
Anyways, what was I gonna say? Oh yeah, I don’t like that remix. At all.

Yo ho, smell ya later!

LucasTizma said on May. 22, 2009

Ha ha! Mato, quick, use your magic to bring us back to 2009! O.o

santiagoff said on May. 22, 2009

I dislike this remix… it doesn’t please my ears >,>

Spitball Sparky said on May. 22, 2009

I was expecting Vanilla Ice or Will Smith to start singing throughout the whole thing.

I like it.

I enjoyed that.

888chilly said on May. 23, 2009

hello to anyone who is reading this. when i went to tomatos site i found the music to the barren factory. when checking the soundplayer, it is not there!!! i am wondering if there are any other songs not on the sound player???

Z-Master said on May. 24, 2009

It feels like I’m back to the 90s ! I really enjoy those kind of songs.

Seganintendokid said on May. 29, 2009

Any one have any earplugs?

tmarsh said on Jun. 10, 2009

“People who are pro-euthanasia are Nazis”
Or something like that. I can’t understand the random quote they threw in there at 2:40.

Claus said on Jun. 10, 2009

Just out of curiosity. I didn’t reach Mt. Itoi yet in EB0, so I never got to the part where Ana asks Ninten if he loves her. I already know what happens when you say yes, but what happens if you say no?

MR. Jupiter said on Jun. 15, 2009

Parts of it sound like farts or people playing they’re armpits …

Shamu said on Jun. 17, 2009

Am I the only one that thought it wasn’t bad.

Rafa said on Jun. 27, 2009

omg my ears and ass hurts

rawpower said on Jun. 28, 2009

They took funky music and glued the eight melodies on it.

FinalstarmanDX said on Jul. 5, 2009

haha, i guess this is what it sounds like if ninten ever ate the magic cake!

GoldenEevee said on Jul. 6, 2009

The magic cake is a lie!!!!

FinalstarmanDX said on Jul. 6, 2009

how about magic pie?

Starmor said on Jul. 20, 2009

this is funny

Bound2Mother said on Nov. 9, 2009

Woah, this song is all over the place and off the walls. And I kinda like it XD Especially at 2:03 but maybe that’s because that’s the most normal part of it

J-MACHine said on Nov. 29, 2009

I’m sorry, but… How is this bad? Yes, they tried to shoehorn Eight Melodies into a late-80s-early-90s peice of musical… Strangeness, but if you ask me, that’s why it’s sobrilliant! I dunno about you, but i’m going to enjoy this glorious musical Ham & Cheese sandwich.

neonix said on Dec. 27, 2009

Unfortunately, I have the need to collect every MOTHER song I come across, even crap like this…

It’s funny and kinda cool in a weird strange way.. but I don’t think I could find myself listening to it again in the future.

Beat said on Jan. 24, 2010

This belongs in Jet Set Radio!

Ninessuca said on Jan. 31, 2010

This was weird in a very good way

death said on Feb. 27, 2010

at first i didnt like it but then i heard 8 melodes and loved it but what was the glass breaking for this song is happy

Mother123 said on Mar. 5, 2010

I believe this is just a happy version of the Eight Melodies. Try picture Ninten beating Giegue and this plays. Without those weird noises from 2:20. I don’t know why lots of people hate it. I know the Eight Melodies is an emotional song, but these people are just adding happiness and bounciness into the song.

Mother123 said on Mar. 6, 2010

Sorry with my last comment, I ment, Try picture Ninten walking home AFTER beating Giegue and this plays. Sorry everyone who got confused.

Anonymous said on Mar. 7, 2010

i like it a lil

Canadian Geek said on Mar. 21, 2010

I think the low pitched voice is supposed to be Giygas… lmfao… funny remix… but I’m going to download it anyways… hahaha….

captaiN said on Mar. 22, 2010

Not so bad not that it feels like eight melodies.
This is more upbeat than simply soothing and to be honest, this makes me giggle in some parts. Strange indeed.

Kendall! said on Apr. 27, 2010

Lmao, I can imagine the Fresh Prince of Bel Air dancing to this.

DLAEsp said on Jun. 5, 2010

I can see it now…
Some cheesy music video of nothing but people in striped shirts and baseball caps dancing 😀
Not that I wouldn’t somehow like it, heheh.

Penguiness said on Jun. 18, 2010

At one point it sounds like a yipeing dog…

Sonigas said on Jul. 17, 2010

The begining sounds like Sonic CD

starwars890 said on May. 20, 2011

I actually like this style of music…

Ninten said on Jun. 22, 2011

.The punk started his Boom Box
.a Melody started to play..
.Even Ninten could not learn this melody

The Earthbounder said on Jun. 23, 2011

Very ’90s Indeed,
Also sounds a bit like the power by SNAP ^_^

The Earthbounder said on Jul. 13, 2011

How this song came into existence:

Mr. Saturn listened to the eight melodies, drank some Mr. Saturn Coffee and said “This Boring, Dakota” then asked SNAP to do a remixed version along with that creepy clown from that fun land palce in crackdown and then gave the demo tape to Itoi. True Story.

The Earthbounder said on Jul. 17, 2011

Mother is a freaking masterpiece of an rpg. The comemrcial said up front that it was a garenteed masterpeice. It was an emotional thrill ride you just couldn’t pass up. But this is just…

The other song is called pollyana.

Lessten said on Jan. 19, 2012

The eight melodies were happy(ish, not sure if it’s supposed to be), and about love and great things. This is the song on drugs. It’s so fast and weird and sound like it’s being sung by people making very weird and random noises.

Earth Saturn said on Mar. 22, 2012

I don’t see why people hate it, I really like it. It’s a litte weird, but I don’t mind it that much.

This also reminds me of Sonic CD’s Japanese OST, which is cool.

TheMrSaturnGuy said on Apr. 2, 2012

I’m not sure what this is anymore.
Some lady is going Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! Don! while some dude is dancing in my head speaking very slowly. It sounds like they tried too hard, and yet, it sounds like they didn’t try hard enough.

Paula Polestar said on May. 22, 2012

I likes it. It sounds like just about every song from the 2000’s Sonic the Hedgehog games, for, like, the GameCube and schtuff. Or Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. LOL.

M1Fan said on Oct. 1, 2012

From 1:32 to 2:30 was the best bit EVER!!!!
