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. I'm gonna mention that you can now nominate songs from third party Nintendo games as well.

Late again! It should stop after midterms though.

For anyone who actually cares about scores, Windwaker's main theme would have taken top score if not for the two 1/10 votes.

Moving on, today's tune is Rosalina's Comet Observatory 3 from Super Mario Galaxy.

When Twilight Princess came out, I was expecting to be blown away by an impressive fully orchestrated soundtrack. Of course, this never happened and many of the good songs in that game were notably affected by midi quality. I assumed Nintendo didn't really care for orchestrated music after that point. Then this game came along and gave me a swift punch to the face. It's one thing to have a fully orchestrated soundtrack. Then it's another for games to have that while still sounding like video game music.

I give Rosalina's Comet Observatory an 8/10. Great track.

8/10. A majestic overworld theme.

I nominate Mastermind (Fire Emblem Awakening).

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

How the heck did Symphony of the Night get nominated?

Starman Junior nominated it and I let it slide. Though I'd like to avoid stepping out of Nintendo territory for fear of off topic moderation.

9/10

One of the many reasons Galaxy trumps 64.

It crosses the barrier between "video game music" and "orchestral scores".

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.

I never bumped this topic at all today. And the votes are the same as they were last time I checked it. Do you guys mind if I leave this one open for a bit longer?
