This poll is now closed.
Basically, rate the Nintendo song from 1 - 10. Feel free to nominate songs yourself. You can nominate remixes too. Just make sure you supply a youtube link (or soundcloud/tindeck for superior quality). I'll tally up the votes after 24 hours or so.

So I love the brawl soundtrack. I remember thoroughly enjoying the sound rip the moment it came out. I remember immediately recognizing remixes of some of my favorite songs (they were named by disk ID when the rip came out, not the track names). I remember absolutely hating the remix of Dark World from Link to the Past, while loving the remixes for Gourmet Race and Area 6. Even for the songs I hadn't heard before, some of the re-arrangements stuck with me. Corneria in one of my favorite songs in the entire game (first Star Fox game was 64). Basically, I liked most of the songs in the brawl soundtrack.

This was not one of those songs.

The brawl main theme is a nice track. Problem is, you hear it all over the game and it doesn't always work as a leitmotif. There are some versions of the track that I like (Battlefield 2) and other versions that I really don't. This one falls somewhere in between. I'm gonna have to give it a 5. If a game is going to re-use the same track for most of itself, it shouldn't make you groan when you hear it again. For games that managed to pull this off properly, look at Super Mario World (which has less variation in music than the New Super Mario Bros. games) and Mother 3.

5/10.

Not bad, just unimpressive. Feels out of place in a fighting game.

My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

A lot of songs in brawl felt out of place in a fighting game. The entire track list for distant planet, route 209 on spear pillar...a few come to mind.

6. It fit the section in the game perfecctly but still...

Mario World did the multiple remixes of one theme right. Mother 3 perfected the multiple remixes of multiple themes thing.

Brawl.....Brawl just got annoying with it. The base melody of the Brawl theme isnt anything special. It should have been like Melee in that the original songs were actually original.
Step: The Plains was not a song you put on your created stage.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Nominate Sand Canyon from Dream Land 3.

You know. The meme-tastic song.

Why is there somebody voting 1 on every single song?

Sand Canyon is an addicting ass song. It's a huge earworm for me.

I'm gonna nominate Mt. Coronet for the time being. To mix things up a bit, I want to broaden the selection of tracks to more games than what's been mentioned now. And I don't want to make a topic for Rainbow Road so soon right after Rainbow Road from F-Zero.

I assumed it was Mirror Aura but it might not be him. I'm not gonna pay too much attention to it though.

Bumping. Apparently, we're getting a Nintendo Direct tomorrow. I'm looking forward to more info on games we already know about.

I think it fits very well as a fighting theme for this game. Like the song, though I think there's a few better ones.

Anyhow, I give 9/10 for just being so fun to listen to. I like these and some others from the game much better though. Don't think they're 10/10, but closer to 9.5 or so.

I don't think everything in Brawl is superb, but there's A LOT of songs in the game. Even when looking at ones that aren't directly ripped from other games. And many of them a good with a good amount of outstanding ones.
