These are the best Mario themes out of the best I choose for you guys! Hope you enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Dark Bowser - Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Love it, Love it, Love it. The entire game has the best soundtrack and this is the peak of it. This is the perfect theme for the climax and it did not fail.

It's just an amazing theme for an amazing game... I love the theme and the fight. To me the fight is easy, with practice, and save resets, you can win.

I never played mario and luigi, but I know that this song, is not that great to me.

Dark bowser is just a great boss! He is one of the hardest boss fights,has an EPIC theme that I don't call just best Mario theme,for me it's best video game theme in the world!

2 Transformed Princess Shroob - Mario and Luigi: Partners In Time

So epic and peaceful. - sonicisbest321

I like the end of the theme

2nd coolest theme in the game. after boss battle

3 Bowser Phase 2 - Super Mario Galaxy 2

Look at that dark hole! - sonicisbest321

4 Giant Bowser - New Super Mario Bros Wii

Yup you guessed it-Bowser turned giant! And is also back with an epic theme. - sonicisbest321

5 Cackletta's Soul Theme - Mario & Luigi: Superstar Sega

Mario and luigi are stuck in bowletta's (more like cackletta's) body! Cackletta's soul comes for an uitimate battle! Both mario and luigi have only 1 hp! Mario gives luigi a mushoom. Luigi gives mario a mushroom! Teamwork, buddy. - sonicisbest321

6 Menu Theme - Yoshi Touch & Go

This is just a remix of the intro theme of yoshi's island. Still epic though. :D - sonicisbest321

I like snails

7 Intro Theme - Yoshi's Island

It's so fitting for a cute dinosaur. Helps me sleep :D - sonicisbest321

8 Underwater Theme - Super Mario Bros

Relaxing

9 Super Dimentio - Super Paper Mario

The Mario RPG games for the most part have PHENOMENAL music. Everyone will hate me for saying this, but I think a decent amount of the Mario RPG overall soundtracks are on par or better than the Mario Galaxy games. There are literally countless Mario songs that come close to being the best, but I think this one takes the cake. The energy it conveys is amazing, and when played at the emotional moment in the story it takes place at, it is an incredible feeling, I think games like the Galaxy games, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Paper Mario, Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, and SO MANY OTHERS have great soundtracks, or at least a few great songs, but I think Super Paper Mario BARELY comes out on top as having the best soundtrack in any Mario game ever. It has both quality and quantity, as there are so many songs and a larger percentage of them are phenomenal. If you think another soundtrack is better that I didn't mention, that's fine, since that's ...more

In the game, the InterNed says this song is called "The Ultimate Show". This is my third favorite Mario song, it would be nice if "Promise" or "Bounding Through Time" were on this list.

It's my favorite video game music of ALL time! This is just my personal opinion

This is amazing

10 Castle Theme - Super Mario World

This is awesome. It makes me think "whoa! That part was tough. Now... Gotta wonder who the boss's going to be? - sonicisbest321

Oh sorry spelled catchy wrong

I have not played much mario world, but I have been to a castle. The music is cathcy and gets you feeling like, "This is gonna get serious soon! "

Legendary theme. Heheh, very catchy. My third favorite Mario theme. - thelegendaries101

12 Level 1-1 Theme - Super Mario Bros

You can't call yourself a mario pro if you can't beat this game! Many remixes of this theme also appers in newer games like mario and sonic at the winter olympic games, new super mario bros DS and many more! Ok moving onto number 9. - sonicisbest321

It never gets old

Sonicisbest321, this is about songs, not about being a pro at mario. But this song is pretty good.

Classic

16 Credits Theme 2 - Mario Kart Wii

This song sticks with you. It never leaves your side. Once you beat MKWii You're in for a treat.

17 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart Wii

This is the best song ever

Oh come on, why this is lower than all the other rainbow roads? this is the best song in any mario game ever.

18 Dire Dire Docks - Super Mario 64
19 Baby Bowser - Yoshi's Island Baby Bowser - Yoshi's Island

This theme is so cool I do the boss only to listen to the music!

How is underground bgm not in the top 10 this song is great though

20 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart 64

I love this music. So smooth and peaceful. Personally I think they ruined the music in Mario Kart 8

I don't think they ruined it in Mario Kart 8, I believe it made it better.

21 Birabuto Kingdom - Super Mario Land

This song is definitely one of my personal favorites in the whole Mario series. Great first level music.

22 Metal Cap - Super Mario 64

When you hear this music, you know it's time to rekt some scrubs.

23 Crystal King - Paper Mario

Second favorite "Mario" theme. My number one is World 1-1/Overworld of course. Who doesn't love that theme? - thelegendaries101

25 Donut Plains - Super Mario Kart

Why is this list so stupid?

26 Final Bowser - Super Mario 64

What's this doing down here for?!

27 Noki Bay - Super Mario Sunshine
28 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
29 Chai Kingdom - Super Mario Land
30 Credits - New Super Mario Bros. U
31 World 7 - New Super Mario Bros.
32 Dr. Mario Fever Remix - Super Smash Bros. Melee
33 Baby Yoshi Pulse Waves - New Super Mario Bros U.

With this addition, I'm referring to the notes added to the level themes when you have baby yoshi, and not the themes themselves, because they're actual themes that are already implemented.

My opinion it is cute when the baby yoshi's sing

34 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart 7
35 Castle - New Super Mario Bros. Wii
36 Peach's Secret Slide - Super Mario 64

This list seems to be lacking this game's music.

41 Walking The Plains - New Super Mario Bros
42 Underwater - Super Mario Bros
43 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart DS
44 Athletic - Super Mario Bros. 3

Catchy, and for some reason it's somewhat nostalgic. - thelegendaries101
