Super Mario Galaxy remains one of the brightest spots in the Wii’s entire software library. It boasts beautiful visuals, innovative gameplay and lots of really, really good music. It also went a long way toward helping our nation recover from the terrible Super Mario Sunshine tragedy of ’02. As another bonus, Galaxy happens to be the first Nintendo developed game that includes fully orchestrated music made with real instruments, which accompanies the theme of interstellar exploration and turtle murder quite nicely. Today’s track is actually from the sequel (really more like an expansion pack) and is so full of festive cheer you’ll uh…I dunno…go crazy maybe. Can you guess which theme it is? Let’s have a look.
If you said “Freezy Flake” Galaxy, congratulations weirdo. You have psychic powers!
