Today’s song is Winters Wake Up Call. Although it’s simple, I really like this song. It’s nice and relaxing and makes me think of cold, wintery air. It’s amazing how much music they stuffed into EarthBound. They even made little things like this that weren’t necessary at all. But they add such nice touches to the game 🙂

Today’s song is Winters. There isn’t too much to say really, this is a pretty sweet song and one of the most representative songs in EB. I really like how the SNES allows for the jingling sample sound, and I always did like the “Deck the Halls” part at the very end before it loops. It took me forever to realize what that part was from, actually. So many fond memories of this song. And if you’ve ever tried the T-Rex Bat Challenge, you know this song very well I’m sure 😛

Today’s song is Stringent. I really like this MOTHER 3 battle song. At least from a listening standpoint. From a comboing standpoint, I seem to realllllly suck at it. Is that just me, or does it tend to mess most people up? There’s also another version of this song that I think is even harder. Or is this the hard one? Argh @ all the duplicate songs 😛

Today’s song is Reminded. It’s a quiet little MOTHER 3 song used during Chapter 6 I think (correct me if I’m wrong, and I probably am). It’s kinda okay I guess, nothing special. There’s a ton of music in MOTHER 3, but I’d say a good number of songs don’t really stand out from the rest, like this one.

EDIT: Actually, I just remembered, this plays at the start of Chapter 4, at the mirror. I knew Chapter 6 was wrong. I liked that mirror scene. No talking, but it worked well. I know how Lucas felt there very well.

Today’s song is Life’s an Inner Turn Radius. This song rocks, it’s one of my favorites in MOTHER 3. Maybe it’s because it’s only played during one very short part of the game, and because it sounds a lot different from the other Pigmask theme variations. I dunno. Maybe I’m just crazy 😛

Today’s song is Porky’s Theme (Brawl). I was actually kind of disappointed with this song – it’s pretty much taken straight from MOTHER 3i and it doesn’t really fit the theme of fast-paced fighting. I know New Pork City is a big stage and fights are slower there, but it just didn’t seem to fit well to me. A nice Pigmask remix might’ve been good, or maybe the Porky’s Porkies song or something along those lines might’ve been nice. Ah well.

Today’s song is Unfounded Revenge (Brawl). This is probably one of my favorite MOTHER/EB music in Smash Bros. Brawl. I liked the two songs used here originally, and I like how it wasn’t a straight port from MOTHER3i. I bet a lot of people who’d never played MOTHER 3 before were like “meh” to this song though 😐

Today’s song is EB0 Monkey Cave. Having played EB0 after I played EB, I was surprised by the resemblance this song has to the Saturn Valley song in places. I wonder how people playing EB after EB0 felt. In any case, it’s an interesting song, especially for an old 8-bit game. Though it gets a bit annoying if listened to for too long I think.
