The Minus World (More Mario B-Sides) There’s the Mario music that gets remade time and time again with each new game, but there’s also a great deal of other tracks that don’t. They’re good too, however, and a lot more eclectic than you might expect from ol’ Super Mario and friends. This episode — a sequel to Episode 23, linked below — is all that weird stuff from Mario games and their various spinoffs. The Marioverse is wild and strange. Enjoy.

I’d say this reminds me more of Xenoblade Chronicles than any Square game, although it also reminds me of the music in Chrono Cross.

Is it weird to say this gives me Jerry Goldsmith “The Gift” from Gremlin vibes? Beautiful track to relisten to (this and Jerry Goldsmith’s). Yoshi’s Island was a real pinnacle in every department.

This reminds me of a track from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.

Sounds like a Warioware riff on the Rhythm Heaven games.

I changed my mind, THIS is my favorite track. Holy monkeys, this is such an amazing track. Shimomura is truly a master.

I think this is my favorite track. This is so reminiscent of the Steam Gardens level in Mario Odyssey. I know the organ is the big reason for it, but it’s still has that 60s-era vibe. I dig it.
