Here's Over Four Hours Of Nintendo 64 Music Ranked In Terms Of Quality

by Kyle Hilliard on Oct 18, 2014 at 09:10 AM

YouTube channel AccordingToSCIENCE listened to every piece of Nintendo 64 music, and ranked the top 100 in a four hour YouTube video.

You can check out the video below which was curated by Rawkhawk and GreatGonzales. The two listened to more than 2000 songs featured in N64 games accumulating more than 2500 collective hours of listening. They organized their ranking with only one rule: a melody may only be featured once. The video was originally posted back in June, but was pulled down because of a copyright claim. Yesterday, however, the dispute was resolved and the video reappeared. In a comment on the video, AccordingToSCIENCE wrote, "We have successfully contested the legal dispute administered by Nintendo via YouTube. Now everyone can continue to enjoy this great music. Have fun."

You can check out the video below, which has a number one that I didn't expect (I skipped to the end because I am impatient).

Banjo-Kazooie, unsurprisingly, features on the list. To grab the game's soundtrack which was recently posted online for free by its composer, head here.
