SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Fourth Fireworks Frenzy Edition

It's the Fourth of July where the fine citizens of the United States of America celebrate their independence from Great Britain. How do we do this? With fireworks, barbeque, hamburgers, and hot dogs, of course! It may be a national holiday for Americans, but that doesn't stop the VGMs from taking over today!

v741. Final Fantasy VII - Birth of A God

Bizarro Sephiroth is the black sheep of the pair of final bosses in Final Fantasy VII. Immediately when one thinks of final bosses in that game they think of One-Winged Angel. Well, I think it's time we shared some love with Birth of A God, the theme song of the fight with Bizarro Sephiroth. This fight took place on three zones, the front and Bizarro's two sides.

v742. Gran Turismo 4 - What to Believe

Gran Turismo 4 was and still is a jam-packed game full of content for racing simulation fans. The tracks were built to every fine detail, and the cars all handled as one would expect, each as different as the last. What to Believe is a duet song featuring the voice of Alan Brey who some might recognize as the man who gave his vocals to many songs on the F-Zero GX album. It's also no coincidence that the composer of both is Daiki Kasho. The band is Dakota Star. Enjoy.

v743. Marvel VS. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds - Victory

Sweet victory. There's no better feeling than blowing away your opponent to smithereens. Perhaps an orgasm or eating a nice, well-prepared steak. Actually, those two latter examples are probably better. Seriously, you have to be a big nerd to think winning a game of Marvel VS. Capcom 3 is better than getting laid or eating a fine meal.

v744. Blue Dragon - Eternity

Ian Gillian is a name in the classic rock world. He was the main voice behind the band, Deep Purple. Now he lends his vocal talents to this Nobuo Uematsu-composed boss battle theme. There's plenty of videos that joke about the lyrics to this song because they're so difficult to understand. Regardless, rocking out to this tune as you beat down another's dragon or big bad boss is always enjoyable.

v745. Banjo-Tooie - Witchyworld

Witchyworld was Gruntilda's theme park-inspired world in Banjo-Tooie. It was the third available world in the game. There was a variety of places to visit from amusement park games to the big top where a boss battle with Don Patch awaited. While Banjo-Tooie focused on bigger and badder levels, I still prefer the original Banjo-Kazooie for its larger emphasis on platforming.

Have a happy Fourth, everyone! This is DJ SuperPhillip signing off for the day. Until tomorrow, we'll see you back here at SuperPhillip Central!
