SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - "200! And That's Not Just How Much Yo' Mama Weighs!" Edition

No, no. I'm just kidding about the title. Sure was an attention-grabber though, no? (Don't beat me up.) This week it's a minor celebration for 200 videos dedicated to my favorite VGMs. Hope you're enjoying the ride, and please leave some feedback in the comments section! Not only do I have five videos to share, but there's also a brand new playlist of volumes 51-100 to reacquaint yourself to. Today we're heading to the futuristic world of Captain Falcon and company, paying a visit to some old reptilian friends, catching up with Edea, meeting up with Rena and Claude, and capping off the second 100 volumes with some Kingdom Hearts II. Let's get into it.


I'm doing two tracks again as they're related and from the same game. It's Super Arrow's theme followed by his wife's, Mrs. Arrow's theme from F-Zero GX for the Nintendo Gamecube.

This track name sounds more majestic than it is. It plays during the stage Sky Palace, but all it really is a fight on a neon-lit rooftop. It's from TMNT: Tournament Fighters the SNES version, and it serves as Michaelangelo's stage. Konami certainly knew how to take advantage of the Super Nintendo's sound chip, don't you think?

"Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec" is one of the main themes of Final Fantasy VIII used mostly for Edea, the sorceress. The song is from the album of the same name-- an orchestral collection of various FFVIII themes. It's very good for both fans of the game and even those who like melodic, orchestral music. I'm in both camps, so I really enjoyed the album.

This track comes from the upcoming Star Ocean: Second Evolution PSP game which is a remake of the original PS1 Star Ocean: The Second Story. The melody is actually Rena's theme, but in this version of it, it's backed by pan flute and a majestic harmony, perfect for a cozy and quaint forest.

If you've been following my list of VGMs for awhile now, you certainly know how much I enjoy listening to a full orchestra as well as a choir. Well, this ending theme of Kingdom Hearts II has both! I can't think of a better way to cap off the second hundred VGMs than this. Hope you get a kick out of it.

We've reached 200 videos, so let's crank out the second compilation of my favorite VGMs. In this edition we journey through song and sound, Symphonia to Galaxy with volumes 51 to 100! Note: I couldn't get these doodads in order of volume, but it really doesn't matter. The experience is still the same!
