SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - They Lost All of Their Money Thanks to the U.S. Economy Edition

Aw, poor SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs! Don't worry, bud, you'll bounce back. At least you'll always be employed here, right? Doesn't that make you feel just a bit better? ...What do you mean I don't pay you? ...Anyway, it's that time of the week again. Allow me to post five more video game songs that are some of my favorites. Do you like any of this week's choices? Let me know in the comments section!


This very haunting and powerful vocal track is from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. No worries if your favorite hasn't been listed yet, I still have a couple more tracks I really enjoy.

WARNING: The end clip is very violent and shows Adam's (one of the game's many psychopaths) death. Even if it doesn't spoil the game's plot at all, you might want to experience it for yourself during the game.

With that said, this is the techno theme of the crazy clown, Adam. Are those mini-chainsaws you're juggling around, or you just freaking nuts? ...Oh, it's both, I see.

We haven't had a track from Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon (reviewed 2-3 weeks ago) since Volume 12 or 13. My memory alludes me. It's the Pop-Up Duel song which I believe is the battle theme of the original Final Fantasy. Please correct me if I'm mistaken. The song starts off retro-like, and then kicks in. It's very powerful to me.

From Donkey Kong 64, Crystal Caves was one of the most difficult areas of the game. So many challenges, so many ways to go, so many hours to get lost in, etc. At least it had a relaxing theme!

This track comes from an extremely rare official Capcom album featuring music from the original Mega Man X. It baffles me why Storm Eagle wasn't included while all the other main stages were. Odd.

Regardless, this is an all-jazz album, and man, does it have the pepper! This track is the epilogue theme. "As X stands over the ocean... blah, blah, blah... Zero rapes him.. blah, blah, blah." Enjoy.

That's a wrap on another week! Next week we'll have our second multiple part video for Volume 175. Don't worry though as we'll still have four other videos to complement it! If you're feeling impatient, you can always check out past and future volumes from my Youtube channel.
