    IMO, when a new smash game comes out I'm JUST as hyped about what songs from games I love get remixed into its OST as I am about the character roster and available levels. It's part of the smash experience.

    I've recently found a renewed love for the Brawl OST because the last time I played that game was before my introduction to the Pokemon Adventures manga which in turn led to my love of gens 3 and 4....... meaning I was NOT able to appreciate the Team Galactic and RSE wild encounter remixes at the time. WHICH, UPON REVISITING, ARE INCREDIBLY RAD AND SO I NEEDED TO MAKE THIS THREAD.

    I'll start with just one favorite from each installment, but Melee Brawl and Sm4sh all have enough great jams to keep this thread going forever.

    SSB64 Kongo Jungle~

    Can't ever go wrong with an iteration of the Dankey Kang theme. I love pretty much every remix of that song ever composed, and this is no exception.

    SSBM Onett~

    I've never even beaten Earthbound but this song gives me Hella Feels. It just sounds really nostalgic. I absolutely love this arrangement, it's probably one of my favorite tracks out of all Smash songs ever. It's up there in terms of just favorite video game pieces, period.

    SSBB Team Galactic Battle~

    As I said in the intro to this post, last time I played Brawl or listened to its OST I hadn't played Gen 4. Which is now my favorite gen of games, with the Team Galactic grunt theme being proobbably my favorite grunt theme in the series. AND THIS REMIX IS SO LIT. FFFFFFFFRICK DUDE.. there's a lot of good **** in Brawl but I'm in love with this right here so it's gonna start me off!! I LOVE SINNOH!!!!!! I LOVE THIS THEME!!!!!!!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAS A FILTHY GENWUNNER LAST TIME I PLAYED THIS VIDEO GAME WHAT THE FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

    SM4SH Spirit Tracks Overworld~

    THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LOZ TRACKS EVER I AM SO ****ING GLAD IT MADE IT INTO THE SM4SH OST I LOVE THIS REORCHESTRATION SO MUCH HOLY **** GUYS

    :cool: I love SSB OST's :cool:

    UGH I LOVE REMIXES I FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT EVERY SMASH GAME


    I always get goosebumps when I listen to the end credits music to the Subspace Emissary campaign in Brawl



    Just---that epic blast of the original N64 theme is orgasmic.

    So is the Mega Man 2 medley from Smash 4

    The Melee mix for this song is good, but the Smash 4 remix is just incredible. Infinitely better:

    ..............I just think it's incredible that, of all songs they could have remixed from Earthbound into Brawl's OST, they chose the drugstore filler music. Like, this is quite possibly the last song I would have expected there to be a Smash Bros remix of, and yet here we are? And it's........... really good?? It's somehow a very fitting homage to Earthbound that they specifically adapted one of the most silly/ridiculous songs in it. Like, this **** is hilarious. Bless.

    Pretty much an obligatory mention. I'm in love with both the source theme and this re-orchestration... Brawl was feeling the LttP love.

    The bit that kicks in around 0:07 is just........ mmmmmmmmmmm

    ~~~imma just singlehandedly keeping this thread going unless and until someone else posts~~~

    this isn't a remix of another game series theme. I just really love Melee's break the targets theme.



    but, to keep on the topic of appreciating smash remixes of other game themes, I really love the New Pork City theme in Brawl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Veu-uB2TjY

    .........no, im definitely not just going through and posting every Mother-related Smash song.

    Only my favorites.

    You simply can't beat the original, but I like this remix for what it is.

    The Brinstar Depths music in Melee is what convinced me to get and play Super Metroid.

    AD, have you listened to Smashing Live!? It's killer.

    I love all of this, but the "Unfounded Revenge" bit specifically is one of the best jams of all time
