We already have a thread for full video game OSTs but how about one for individual tracks?

I'll start, I'm crazy about Let's Do the Odyssey! from Super Mario Odyssey, I never would have expected a song like this from a Mario game.

Yoko Shimomura - Beware the Forest's Mushrooms
Soundtrack: Super Mario Rpg
When I think of background music (BGM) the most important thing for me to qualify it as a great track is to imagine myself in that place and think how appropriately the music reflects that environment. This track does it better than any other I've ever heard. The stage it's a forest maze filled with curious enemies (pic related: a cute wiggler), treasures and a quest to follow another character through the magical maze.

Also, everyone please post with the links in text form... otherwise this thread will eventually be impossible to open for those of us with older computers.

Secret of Mana has a lot of good music tracks.


A flute piece, and my favorite piece of music from the SNES era.

The Dark Star

One of the best examples of how to have music build up. If nothing else, give the first 25 seconds a listen.

For music from a more modern era, I'll just leave the MyraSlokov Ar Tonelico Hymnos playlist here.
it's quite hard to pick a single track, most of them are incredibly good, and the lyrics have more thought behind them than any other piece of music used in video games.

Easily one of my all time favorite tracks, game or not.

Don't care if it predates the game, I can't hear this song without thinking of vice city.

A Flock Of Seagulls - I Ran

The original boarderlands has a really underrated ending theme.

Good old NFS3 has good soundtracks. I listen to them when I set on the damn bus.

Been playing a USA game in Darkest Hour recently. The entire soundtrack for Hearts of Iron II is really good, it actually works really well despite the slow pace of the game because of how the tracks have highs and lows that fit your ships moving from LA to Wake as well as they do marine landings on Iwo Jima. In terms of immersion for this theatre, Japanese Spirit stands head and shoulders above the others. It makes the micromanagement and frustration of moving large numbers of troops across contested oceans onto tiny specks of isolated rock actually pretty cool instead of annoying as shit.

Mario Kart 8 - Big Blue
No song makes me as ready to race as this one in MK8. That saxophone is just amazing on it's own but it also plays really well with the guitar. Just being able to hear this while racing is one of the things that made the DLC worth it. It's even better listening to this while racing in 200CC.
