SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - "Katmarin' It Up" Edition

We're approaching the 300th video, and it's the Katamari Damacy series that will be rolling us to our goal. Somewhat peculiar this week is that all five songs come from the same game. No worries, however, because next week there's Katamari goodness from the various sequels! Let's roll up some music, shall we?

V291. Katamari Damacy - Katamari on the Rock - Main Theme

Let's countdown to 300 videos with the always quirky seldom normal Katamari Damacy franchise! This tune features the main theme of the series. Ah! It's so catchy! Perhaps it's... too catchy!

V292. Katamari Damacy - Lonely Rolling Star

The first five songs of our listen to the Katamari franchise are all from the original Katamari Damacy game. Although the song is in Japanese, the melody is universal which is what I care for most in music. If I cared about the words, I'd probably read more poetry!

V293. Katamari Damacy - A Crimson Rose and a Gin Tonic

Filled with scat and a wonderful jazzy beat, A Crimson Rose and a Gin Tonic is one infectious song while the good Prince is rolling up household objects in his Katamari ball. This is a track that makes you want to get up and dance, does it not? You don't have to admit to anything, so no worries.

V294. Katamari Damacy - Cherry Blossom Color Season

This is a peaceful yet powerful song performed by a bounty of Japanese children. Sorry to all of those pedophiles out there, but there aren't any pictures for you weirdos. Instead we have a beautiful and soothing song that makes one feel like they can do anything... like roll up gigantic skyscrapers and crabs!

V295. Katamari Damacy - Katamari Love ~ Ending Theme

Katamari Love is the ending theme of Katamari Damacy performed by Shigeru Matsuzaki who also sang Katamari on the Swing and Shine! Mr. Sunshine-- all included in my favorite VGMs. It seems like a standard feature of any song Matsuzaki sings is a kickass chorus, and Katamari Love does not disappoint.

The conclusion of our listen to the Katamari Damacy series as well as the arrival to the 300th video are all next week on SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs! We'll see you then!
