Best Stage Select Music in the Mega Man series of all time [Read OP](Long Post){Round 1}

Mega Man may not be the first to have a level select screen but it's well known for having them. The music of the Stage Select Screen gets you pumped up before you go off to a new stage or to get you ready to beat down on a robot master/maverick.

So this thread is to decide which Mega Man game in any series that has them, is the best of all time! Keep in mind even if you have a favorite I strongly recommend you look at all the examples in the thread because you may find a new favorite to vote for.

We will use a top 5 system where the first choice is worth 50 points and the rest drop down like so:

1st choice= 50 points

2nd choice= 40 points

3rd choice= 30 points

4th choice= 20 points

5th choice= 10 points

In the second post of this thread I will update the totals based on the votes.

(if i'm missing any the meets the OP rules let me know.)
 
I wasn't expecting Megaman Xtreme to sound that good. It's near SNES quality.

Didn't expect Megaman 2 on the gamboy to sound like scratching on a chalkboard either.

Doing some research, it seems all the gameboy Megaman games had a different developer for every entry which seems bizarre because the 1st gameboy game was actually pretty good, so I wonder why Capcom fired them, and every other developer after.

We never got that collection either as it was cancelled. I heard many good things about Megaman 5 on the gameboy, it had completely original bosses. Too bad there's no legal way to play it these days.
