Best Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 Music

RebelGamer
A big reason we love Super Mario Galaxy 1-2 is because of music. I've mentioned in another list that Super Mario Galaxy has the best soundtrack in Video Game Industry. I'll be counting down our favorite soundtracks for Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Feel free to add any music that I may have forgotten.

The Top Ten

1 Gusty Garden Galaxy (SMG)

Great song - darthvadern

All the music in Galaxy is garbage

Although many consider this track "overrated," it is still one of, if not the best song I've ever heard in a video game. It's so lively, majestic, and beautiful that it's nigh impossible not to love. It already has a great remix in Super Mario 3D World called "Champion's Road".

So majestic and amazing. I love it. I feel so peaceful listening to it. When I unlocked it in Super Smash Bros I made it that only good egg galaxy were and gusty garden the only songs. If I was an orchestra teacher I would play this and a lot of the Mario Galaxy Music. I love this song and Rosalinas theme in the observatory.

2 Melty Molten Galaxy (SMG)

Yes very epic - darthvadern

So many good things about this galaxy. It's challenging, and actually takes more than one attempt. The visuals and cinematics throughout the level are just amazing. It really adds to the atmosphere of the level and makes you feel like you are in a hell-ish area with much a stake. The missions are wide, each being very fun. Don't even get me started on the music. The wide variety of instruments and how they bounce off one another, and the great combination of orchestra and techno music makes you feel like they were meant to be. Many different parts with each rapidly approaching the turning point, like shooting away from the volcano. Each part of the level makes you want to come back for more, that's why it's deserving of the #1 spot.

Like every Lava based levels, the Galaxy itself it's so cool and challenging. But let's talk about the track. It feels so good when it reaches the EXPLOSION part. You know, that part you usually reach the volcano and then explodes. I don't even care if I keep failing the missions, because that's a good excuse why to listen to this track over and over. - RebelGamer

Best. Mario. Music. Ever. Fin. This should be higher up on the list. - Vic21102

3 Good Egg Galaxy (SMG)

Good Egg Galaxy immediately lets you know right off the bat that this game is going to be spectacular, as any first level should do. It's quick-paced, surprisingly simple, and easy to pick up. This song is one of gaming's best soundtracks.

Great but a bit too high up - darthvadern

I love this song all much and is to catchy this needs to be #1!

This song is the 1st song, well actually, this is the 2nd song you hear the very first time you play Super Mario Galaxy. Then, when you start playing Good Egg Galaxy and hear the intro of the song, you're in for a wild ride. - RebelGamer

4 Buoy Base Galaxy (SMG)

This is the best - darthvadern

The orchestral majesty of this song blows my mind. It is so intense and gets you pumped up for almost anything. I always picture an army of 1,000 men marching into battle to this theme. It definitely feels the most like space with all of the different synths and techno instruments. Truly a masterpiece.

This song is one of the best songs in Super Mario Galaxy but I think all SMG songs are the best

It feels like you're actually in space. - RebelGamer

5 Space Junk Galaxy (SMG)

Such a calm song - darthvadern

There's just something about this song I just really like, I just don't know what it is. Respond to me, if you know. - RebelGamer

6 Ending Theme (SMG)

Better than Gusty Garden any day

Good - darthvadern

This song horribly underrated. It only has 8k or 9k views as of 11/19/15. To me it's so good, I want to play it during my graduation. Go Class of 2020! - RebelGamer

7 King Bowser (SMG)

Yeah - darthvadern

8 Bowser's Lava Lair (SMG2)

Yes it's awesome - darthvadern

I had a tough choice between the 1st and 2nd versions, but the 2nd one had more instrument sounds, and has a choir. - RebelGamer

9 Purple Comet (SMG)

Penis

Very memorable song - darthvadern

No explanation needed if you played the fan-made game called Super Mario 63. - RebelGamer

It's somewhat epic to hear this while being followed by shadows.

10 Rosalina's Observatory (SMG)

The quiet brilliance of this song is both uplifting, epic, and a bit poignant at the same time. The Observatory music is one that you always wish to hear again, and it is, without a doubt, one of the highlights of Super Mario Galaxy. Period.

Yeah - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Ending Theme (SMG2)

This is the best ending theme music (only the ending theme of mario & luigi: partners in time is better) in a mario game

Good song - darthvadern

Best. Music. Ever. (Prepare a napkin)

Come on this is like the best ending music to a Mario game

Great song definitely - darthvadern

This song was a new beginning to a new adventure, it feels so adventurous. - RebelGamer

22 Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla (SMG2)

This is way too underrated. It’s way better than the first one.

25 Gateway Galaxy (SMG)

Sure it's alright - darthvadern

It's super awesome! It calms me down. I like listening to it while looking at the stars. It's so soothing yet sad like Rosalina. I listen to it for at least 5 minutes every day. I just love it.

26 Luma (SMG)

This is probably the most emotional song I have ever heard in a game, and this song is just so relaxing and calming to hear, especially for people with stuff happening in their lives. The song is just so beautiful in so many ways, I love it.

27 Bowser's Galaxy Generator (SMG2)

Yes it's awesome - darthvadern

This theme is so hype and gets you pumped for the final boss, it's very underrated

28 Flip Swap Galaxy (SMG2)

Not that good but still very good - darthvadern

29 Throwback Galaxy (SMG2)

A remaster of Bob-Omb's Battlefield from Super Mario 64 - darthvadern

Insanely catchy, just pure pleasure and nostalgia.

Quite honestly, a huge punch in terms of nostalgia, the music is beautifully orchestrated and has a great spin on the original soundtrack.

30 Comet Observatory (SMG)

YES - darthvadern
