Silver-Tongued Devils: Super Mario Galaxy

     Oh, Nintnedo. For every remake and piece of dung you put out, you always manage to win me back with your inventive and supremely fun sequels.  Super Mario Galaxy is no exception. And of course, one of my favorite parts of the game was the sound, specifically the music. There are a ton of songs in this game, and almost all of them are fantastic. But what should I expect from a Nintendo game, and a Mario game no less. So, without further adieu, let's dive into the sound of Super Mario Galaxy. Or as Mario would have it, "Let's a-go!"

     First, before I get to the parts of the sound I actually want to talk about, lets talk about the sound effects. Nothing special, but certainly nothing bad. Jumping sounds like (more or less) jumping, grabbing coins has that classic sound, all the things that are standard for a Mario game. My favorite sound effects are the ones that have musical sounds attached to them.not really much else to say here. This is a Nintendo game with Nintendo sound effects. There's so little voice work it's barely worth mentioning, so onto the next topic!

     The music. Super Mario Galaxy has the best score of any Wii game (other than SMG2) that I have ever played, and can stand with the best of 'em from any console. Every galaxy not only has it's own unique music, but it's all very, very good. Fantastic, even. The music is diverse, fitting of it's respective area, and most importantly, doesn't ever get old. Not once did I ever think, "Not THIS song again." Not a single time. Personally, my favorite song of them all is the Gusty Gardens theme. Not only that, but it's one of my favorite songs from a game, ever. I could listen to it over, and over, and over, and I'd still love it to death. I'm listening to it right now, actually. And you should be too.

    You're welcome.

     That's not the only song that's great from Galaxy, though. I highly recommend you listen to at least one other song, so here's another one of my favorites, from the Melty Molten Galaxy (or, hey, you could just play the game.)

     I think that's just about all that needs to be said about Super Mario Galaxy. A great game made even better by it's fantastic score.
