SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Back to School Edition

Welcome to another installment of SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs brought to you by Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars for Nintendo Wii. This week we have Wii Sports, Wave Race, and much more, so sit back, relax, and get ready for some of my VGMs!

v476. Wii Sports - Title (Live version)

This live, acoustic version of the Wii Sports Title theme comes to us from the Touch Generations Japanese album. It has themes from a wide variety of Touch Generations titles from Nintendogs to Wii Fit to English Training. If you get a chance to track down a copy, you will not be disappointed in what you hear.

v477. Mii Contest Channel - Submission Plaza

Here we have what I think is the first theme that doesn't come from a game whether downloadable or retail. What we have here is Submission Plaza, a song from the Mii Contest Channel. Rate your favorites, take a Mii or two (or a dozen!) home to your own Wii, and have a quick jaunt on this otherwise useless channel.

v478. English Training - Peter Piper Syndrome

Here comes a title that never made it to North America, but it did in Europe and Japan. It's part of the Touch Generations line of games from Nintendo. This catchy song tells the tale of Peter Piper who picked a pack of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a pack of pickled peppers, how many did Peter Piper pick? Great question. Great question.

v479. Wave Race 64 - Port Blue

Coming from Kazumi Totaka who is better known for his work on Animal Crossing, Wave Race 64's soundtrack uses synth guitars and other instruments like keyboards to give off its tropical flair. Port Blue was the fifth race in the Normal, Hard, and Expert cups. It's a race that takes place-- where else-- in a port with cargo ships and crates floating in the water.

v480. Wave Race: Blue Storm - Dolphin Park (Exhibition)

We once again hit the water with the Wave Race franchise. This time we're taking a listen to a song from the Wave Race: Blue Storm, the way difficult sequel to Wave Race 64. Dolphin Park is the tutorial course of the game with easy obstacles, light waves, and bright sunshine. The song for the level relies heavily on the electric guitar. Perfect for ripping some waves!

This is the end of the road for now, kiddos. Until next week, the VGMs are going back into hibernation!
