SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Countdown to 500 Edition

Welcome to another week of new VGMs right here on SuperPhillip Central. This week we have music from Yoshi's Story, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearer, Rabbids Go Home, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, and Goldeneye 007-- but not in that order. Get situated, relaxed, and excited as here we go!

v491. Yoshi's Story - Baby Bowser's Lullaby

This tune plays during the castle levels of Yoshi's Story. It's Baby Bowser's Lullaby, a quaint piece with some orchestral flair. I enjoyed Yoshi's Story, but since it's so short and dependent on collecting fruits to progress, I didn't love it as much as I should have. Perhaps it's the same with some of you?

v492. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers - Lett Highlands

Originally I confused the name of this area with the word "Left". It's actually the Lett Highlands, and this song is perfect for a casual stroll through the grassy knolls and grasslands of the highlands. The Crystal Bearers is getting hammered review-wise, and that's a shame since I consider it to be a very good game. Opinions, eh?

v493. Rabbids Go Home - Ciocarlia

This track from the Rabbids Go Home official soundtrack starts off slow, but by a minute in it's a frantic and wild brass tune. Rabbids Go Home sold rather well on the Wii, so I'd be interested in seeing what the team can do with some time off and some new ideas.

v494. Goldeneye 007 - Frigate

I hadn't played Goldeneye before, so it was a real treat to go through for the first time. This theme starts off with the Goldfinger motive followed by the traditional James Bond theme/melody. Around the midpoint the song speeds up for when action happens during the level.

v495. Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity - Catch Me If You Can

Catch Me If You Can was the theme song of the original Sonic Riders. It had the same lyrics, but it was entirely different musically. The Zero Gravity is much more rock oriented as opposed to the techno-based Sonic Riders theme. I prefer the Zero Gravity version as you can probably tell. Underrated game Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity was.

Next week we'll be celebrating the 500th VGM. I hope you are dripping with anticipation! I know I am!
