Top 10 Mario Kart Tracks with the Best Music

An attempt to make a racing series as a spin-off of a franchise usually fails. Not for Mario Kart though. Nintendo also happens to make great music for their video games and the Mario Kart series is no exception. If you weren't so focused on watching for blue shells then you might have noticed the amazing music and some of the tracks. So let us get started
The Top Ten
1 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Easily the best Mario Kart song, and one of the best songs put out by Nintendo. Elegant and beautiful, fitting for a lovingly difficult course.

2 Mushroom Bridge - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
3 Kalimari Desert - Mario Kart Tour
4 New York Minute - Mario Kart Tour
5 Tokyo Blur - Mario Kart Tour
6 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart 64

Someone listening to this track today might think, "There's no way a sweet, space-vibes song like this could fit in the Nintendo 64." Well, you thought wrong. Nostalgia and space vibes do take place in this wonderful music track, especially for this 6-minute-long, boring race track.

Both the original and the Mario Kart 8 version are great.

If someone is hearing this, he will probably start crying. Something else I noticed is that it is also the longest Mario Kart theme of all time.

7 Paris Promenade - Mario Kart Tour
8 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart 7

It is considered the most emotional of all the Rainbow Road themes in the entire series and even samples N64's Rainbow Road theme. Wow, this is amazing.

Best song in the series by miles. It's in my top 3 best video game songs.

9 London Loop - Mario Kart Tour
10 Coconut Mall - Mario Kart Wii

Now, this track is just catchy. It captures the shopping vibe and has even gained a little popularity on the side of YouTube. It's great music for a beloved track, unless you keep driving up the wrong escalator every time.

Super-duper catchy. Need I say more?

The Contenders
11 Cloudtop Cruise - Mario Kart 8

This epic track provides some sweet adventurous vibes on this chaotic track. This can even give listeners some Super Mario Galaxy vibes. Oh wait, this remixes the theme of one of their songs!

12 Waluigi Pinball - Mario Kart DS

My favorite is still SNES Rainbow Road on GBA (believe it or not), but this makes a close second.

13 Vancouver Velocity - Mario Kart Tour
14 Electrodrome - Mario Kart 8

You would not think this is from Mario Kart when you hear it for the first time. This is great, rocking, electric, but memorable music that has ENERGY written all over it. Of course, this makes the track a fan favorite in the series.

15 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart Wii
16 Los Angeles Laps - Mario Kart Tour
17 Toad's Factory - Mario Kart Wii

The extended version is really good.

18 Waluigi Stadium - Mario Kart Double Dash

Here is the nostalgic song that seems quite victorious, in my opinion, and somehow feels pretty dancey.

19 Mario Circuit - Mario Kart Double Dash

Another nostalgic track. This one features underused instruments that make the track sound very charming and makes it feel, well, charming. That's really as much as I can say to describe this.

20 DK Summit - Mario Kart Wii

#15 out of 16? Just listen to it again. This is by far the best in the whole series!

21 Bowser's Castle - Mario Kart 64

Yep, they managed to combine eerie effects and still make it feel like the music belongs to a track in the Mario Kart series.

22 Sky Garden - Mario Kart: Super Circuit
23 Merry Mountain - Mario Kart Tour
24 Mario Circuit - Super Mario Kart

What can I say? It's an iconic, classic music piece.

25 Moo Moo Farm - Mario Kart 64
