SPC's Favorite VGMs - Memorial Day 2013 Edition

The unofficial start of summer has arrived in the United States, where SuperPhillip Central originates from. We wish all a happy and safe Memorial Day. Those who don't live in the States, however, don't need to feel left out. The five VGMs that we have selected for today are meant for you, too, so please join us as we listen to music from F-Zero, Sonic Colors, and Breath of Fire! After you do that, join us for some more VGMs next Monday and peruse our VGM Database.

v381. F-Zero (SNES) - Silence

We start with some jazz fusion of the fast and frenzied kind with this song from the original F-Zero, a Super Nintendo launch title. Silence is set on top of a sea of purple, intimidating players with its crazy curves and dangerous hazards.

v382. Sonic Colors (Wii) - Planet Wisp - Act 1

One of our favorite Sonic Colors songs comes from the first act of Planet Wisp, a gorgeous area full of lush vegetation. The song that goes alongside it stars the piano and is accompanied by a groovy bass track. Planet Wisp would return in Sonic Generations, another game that broke the dreaded so-called "Sonic Cycle."

v383. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil (PS2) - Going to Lunatea

Going to Lunatea is the world map theme of Klonoa's second adventure, Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil. While Pac-Man has always been Namco's mascot at center stage, we can't help but prefer the company's floppy-eared cat-like creature instead.

v384. Breath of Fire (SNES, GBA) - Fate

A song that plays during the most heart-wrenching moments of the original Breath of Fire, Fate tugs at one's heartstrings with its forlorn and somber theme. Even game music from way back in the early 90's could evoke such emotion from the player.

v385. Wario World (GCN) - Greenhorn Forest

For the longest time Wario had his own land to conquer. Later he moved onto having his own world. Wario World was a hidden gem in the GameCube lineup that was developed by Treasure, the minds behind such great games like Gunstar Heroes and Ikaruga. Greenhorn Forest is a jazzy theme for the very first level in the game. Perhaps SuperPhillip Central will review Wario World just in time for Game & Wario's Wii U debut...
