Best Mario Party 8 SongsBest songs from Mario Party 8. With that being said here's the list.
The best song in Mario Party 8 is "It's On Now" which is a minigame song that plays in a total of ten minigames which makes it the second most frequent minigame tune in the game and honestly it's probably the best song in the game as well. It's just so catchy and so motivating. Automatically it makes me like every minigame that has this song in it (yes even Cut from the Team, which is one of the most infamous minigames from the game). Whenever a duel minigame is going to be played in party mode I always hope for a minigame with this catchy and motivating tune. It's that good! So many great minigames like You're the Bob-Omb, Cardiators, Wing a Scare, Rotating Station, Eyebrawl and Surf's Way Up use this soundtrack and some of them wouldn't be that good if it wasn't for this soundtrack. From what I've seen this soundtrack is used in mainly luck-based minigames and those where you have to be aware of what you're doing. It's amazing!
Despite the haunted hideaway being my least favourite board I do think its soundtrack is one of the best, and the best board music in the game by far. I just love the spooky and eerie theme of this song, it just flows so well. It definitely fits the spooky theme of the board. The melody is just awesome as well. So yeah this is #2 place for me.
Another board music already. The soundtrack used in the linear board of the bunch is surely a cheery and awesome theme. The steel drums are my favourite instrument and they sound very good here and the melody is just really happy and nice to listen too. I could imagine listening to this song when on a beach, it's that fitting. Really awesome song.
This is a really climatic and good song in my opinion. If I had to choose a song that fits the best with their respective board in this game, it would be the song for Bowser's Warped Orbit. It's so climatic and fitting for the space station located in an orbit of a red glowing star. I love the melody for the theme and it's overall just a very good song in my opinion.
This is my favourite "How to Play Minigame" theme in the Mario Party series. I don't know why it just really gets me. It's catchy, calm, the melody is amazing, the beat is excellent, etc. I once read a youtube comment that this is the sound of nostalgia. And that is certainly accurate. Even if you never played the game as a child it really sounds like the music for nostalgia. Amazing.
My second favourite minigame theme. It's very catchy and the melody is so as well. It plays in a lot of the minigames that require you to act fast such as in Flip the Chimp, Sick and Twisted, Aim of the Game, Snipe for the Picking, Settle it in Court, etc. It's very good as well and like with It's on Now, it motivates me to play these minigames. I love it!
This minigame is mainly used in those happy minigames where it's mostly safe things you do or toyish things, as an example the song is used in the minigames Loco Motives, Sugar Rush, Rudder Madness, In the Nick of Time. Very good song in my opinion and deserves a spot here.
On boards in the game there are always DK Spaces, and Bowser Spaces. If you land on a DK Space, something very positive will happen, but with Bowser spaces, something negative will happen. This is the theme that plays when Bowser has come to the board after someone has landed on a Bowser space and it's pretty darn badass. I like the melody and it's catchy. It's just overall a good song.
This is the minigame music played in minigames that have to do with racing like Canyon Cruisers, Lean, Mean, Ravine, Kartastrophe, Alpine Assault, etc. I really like it overall. The electric guitar surely makes the melody badass and catchy, in fact there are two electric guitars playing in the song, a lighter, and a darker, but I'm talking the lighter one. It's so badass so and it really fits the racing theme.
Test for the Best is one of the minigame modes in the game, the others being Free Play Arcade, Crown Showdown, Flip-Out Frenzy and Tic-Tac Drop. Test for the Best is a one-player minigame mode in which the player tries to complete ten minigames as fast as possible and the faster you complete a minigame, the higher up in the sky you go. There are three songs for this one, the first one that's played at the ground, a second one when you're higher up in the sky, and a third one when you're like in airplane height. The third one is the best one because it sounds so climatic and heroic for some reason. There's the nice melody and the upbeat beat, although I will admit the second one sounds very similar. Overall it's a great song.
