SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Be My Valentine Edition

Love is in the air, and welcome to another week of soothing and wonderful VGMs from yours truly. This week we have The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, two Kirby games, and Super Mario Kart. A great mix of Nintendo-themed tunes to start off your week. Bon appetite!

v486. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - Forest Overworld

What could be called the main theme of Spirit Tracks, this song plays as you navigate the forest realm on your trusty train. After hearing the soundtrack to Phantom Hourglass, I was worried as to how the soundtrack of Spirit Tracks would sound. Thankfully, the difference is night and day. What a fantastic soundtrack for a fantastic game.

v487. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - Fraaz's Theme

Fraaz is the second temple's boss in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. As always, the special item acquired in the temple will usually help you in falling the boss. Fraaz is no exception. This boss theme and various versions can be heard throughout the game's fights, but this one is my personal pick of perfection.

v488. Kirby's Dream Land 3 - Ripple Field 2

I recently picked up Kirby's Dream Land 3 on the Wii Virtual Console. I'm really digging the game. It's got fun co-op, so I can play with family members. The music isn't too shabby either. The track I've selected to represent this game for now plays during one of the levels of Ripple Field.

v489. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards - Hirobita Star

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards was played by me for the first time thanks to the Wii's Virtual Console. There's a lot of great classics on there-- that's for sure. Some are overpriced, however... Nonetheless, this theme plays during the outside levels of Rock Star (aka Horobita Star in Japan).

v490. Super Mario Kart - Battle Mode

I recently went back to Super Mario Kart since it appeared on the Wii's Virtual Console. Boy, do I stink at it! Perhaps I'm too used to the physics of more modern kart racers. Regardless, this theme plays during the fun and crazy battle mode. Hence why it's called Battle Mode!

We'll catch you next week for five more of SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. I hope you'll look forward to it as I will.
