Best Mario Music of All Time

Fact: I want to become a musician because of these awesome pieces of music. I'll be adding the best music we've had with our favorite plumber! Feel free to add some! I mean, this is a free website.

The Top Ten

1 Gusty Garden Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy)

This songs is the pure sound of nostalgia, not saying it's only nostalgia saying. This song is a gorgeous masterpiece with such a beautiful melody. I constantly find myself humming this tune under my breath. Truly a work of art.

Best song

This is just a masterpiece. Played by a full orchestra, it is a wispy tune that brings Gusty Garden to life. Probably the best video game music ever.

No, Jump Up Superstar is better than this.

2 Ending (Super Mario Galaxy)

I bet a lot of people don't know this music, but it's incredibly good and made me cry the first time I beat this game, and it's very underrated. - SmashBall

4 Dire Dire Docks (Super Mario Galaxy)

I've loved this since being a little kid. Especially when you enter the cave and the drums kick in. This is the best theme that's come from a Mario game

Crap! I just noticed something! I accidently put Super Mario Galaxy instead of Super Mario 64! - SmashBall

If you like peace and quiet music. then this is for you. Except when you see that scary eel, then you'll be out. - SmashBall

5 Koopa's Road (Super Mario 64)

Another popular song that actually got a remix in newer Mario games, including Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2. - SmashBall

For some reason this music reminds me of Bendy And The Ink Machine.

6 Good Egg Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy)

When I listened to it,I thought I was a baby listening to twinkle twinkle little star

One of the most memorable music in the Mario franchise. - SmashBall

7 Bowser's Galaxy Generator (Super Mario Galaxy 2)

Hands down, the best final level music (in my opinion I mean, this IS - SmashBall

8 Buoy Base (Super Mario Galaxy)

I always felt that the Gusty Gardens soundtrack was overrated. I mean, it was peaceful, but none matched the triumphant sounding of Buoy Base. Personally, Battle Rock Galaxy, Dreadnought Galaxy, and Freeze Flame Glacier Galaxy sounded better than the #1. I loved it at first note.
