For my ranking, I've decided to go with the top 25.

As for what was under consideration, I've decided not to include the 8-bit versions just to eliminate clutter. If people want me to, I guess I could do a separate list for those, but for the most part, it's just gonna be the same as the main list's versions.

As for what to expect, I am a man that enjoys melodic, catchy tunes that I can listen to outside of actually playing the game. A lot of times after playing a great game, I'll put 1 or 2 of my favorite songs on my phone so I can listen to at work to remind me of how fun that game was. Well, part of the reason for me wanting to do this ranking in the first place is that I've ended up with TWELVE Mario Odyssey songs on my phone. This soundtrack overall is superb. Every song on this list (and probably half of the songs not on this list) is something I could tap my foot to and enjoy.

With that, let's get to some of the songs that almost made it.....

Honorable Mention: Shop
You know a soundtrack is great when a few little jingles playing over an intercom while you go into a building for 20 seconds at a time are catchy enough for you to remember.

Honorable mentions are like the "you tried" trophy of my rankings. "You tried" isn't enough to warrant a song link.

Honorable Mention: Cookatiel Battle
It certainly fits the mood of fighting a cross-eyed bird that vomits soup at you as an attack, but it's not something I would want to listen to outside of the boss fight.

Honorable Mention: Forgotten Isle 2
This should probably be a dishonorable mention, considering it's the only Kingdom track to not make the list. I'm not a fan of the tribal theme it has going. Not a great melody by any means.

Honorable Mention: Bowser Battle 1
I was honestly kinda surprised this winded up outside the list, but it's a bit too monotonous for my liking. This one isn't so much because it's bad, it's more that everything else is just too good.

Final Honorable Mentions: Most of the mini-world songs
This batch includes Another World, Run Jump Throw!, Caves, etc. Once again, I thought most of these songs were fine, but none of them are truly memorable, outside of a lone track that will be seen later.

I would think Bowser would be the #1 capture ability but who knows!

25. Mount Volbono: Town
I can smell pasta just by listening to this song. This has to be the most Italian video game song in existence.

50. Sherm

Okay so maybe people will not like this ranking. There are still plenty of captures left that don't really do much, and Sherm actually does quite a bit. Here is the thing though, it has the worst control scheme ever. WHY IS SHOOT AND AIM BOTH ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CONTROLLER BUT NOT USING A SHOULDER BUTTON!? Also the motion controls trigger so your aim is awful anyway.

Not really worth a debate but interesting to see something like Cactus beat out Taxi

The Taxi peeling out was at least cool
Thank you, Eddie Guerrero.

What a weird song for a Mario game, but I like it a lot. It feels like this should be a Metal Gear boss theme. If someone wants to rank bosses or something, they should totally do so, but while I'm personally on this subject...... DO NOT MESS WITH ME, BIPED.
