The saxophone to win my soul.
EDIT: Thanks, OP! Between this and DKCTF, Nintendo needs to start releasing OSTs a.s.a.p!
Edit: Hot DAMN I love the new instrumentation for Toad's Turnpike. DS Tick Tock Clock is also beautifully playful. It also makes me crave a new Paper Mario.
I did not expect to be impressed with a Mario Kart soundtrack...but man, they really pulled all the stops out for this (close to Mario 3D World and DKC: TF in terms of soundtrack quality :O!)
Great job Nintendo :).
I need to put this shit on my iPad.
I mean, what Nintendo game is awful, exactly?
Much jazz, so violin, such saxophone.
Sounds great. I agree nintendo OSTs have been great recently, the Sochi Winter Olympics being a hidden gem. Maybe they will obtain Sega status where the games can be awful but the music is always good?
Who's the composer?
Not to mention the bass solo that sounds like something out of Space Dandy.
That throwback in the main theme... daaang
No problem. I was actually gonna link these hours ago, but I had dinner.
These tracks are great. Thanks a ton for the links.
Agreed. Some of the best music for video games is the stuff that you don't hear anymore. From big band in MK8 to the elements of jazz and ragtime in prior SMB soundtracks which are NOTABLY missing from modern iterations.
I hope Nintendo never loses its love affair of big band OSTs. Simply a joy to listen to.
Depends who's giving the awards.
Tick Tock Clock is great. Nintendo's gonna clean up soundtrack of the year awards if it keeps putting out stuff like this and Donkey Kong.
If this doesn't get you in the mood for racing, nothing ever will.
