Music Mondays: N64 Edition

So. I’m sort of in the mood to do another video game music edition of my Music Mondays. I didn’t put too many songs in the first one, so we’ll just disregard that blog altogether. Alright? Splendid!  Oh, and I hope that this one will be more pleasing considering I’m trying to add more variety to this one. All of these will be from N64 games. I’m nostalgic it seems. Anyway… Allons-y!

Legend of Zelda: Legend of Zelda (OOT, in particular. But Majora’s Mask was also good…) is my favorite video game of all time. It also doesn’t help that the in-game music was/is so ahead of it’s time. The Ocarina songs are the most noted and the best sounding. I applaud the makers of the game and the ones who created these delightful ‘ballads’.  As it so happens, I’m a sucker for creative remixes…so it comes as no surprise that I managed to track down some nice rock/metal remixes to some Legend of Zelda songs. Enjoy!

Majora’s Mask Metal Medley. (And If you’re a big enough Zelda fan, you’ll recognize the music even with the metal touch…)

Metal Zelda: Gerudo Valley Theme: If you played…you may remember Gerudo Valley. 🙂

Hyrule Theme: …Hyrule. I don’t need to explain.

Last but not least: Ocarina of Time Warp Songs (Metal Cover): No explanation needed ❤ Just enjoy. Side Note: My favorite is both the Bolero of Fire and Nocturne of Shadows 🙂 No surprises there.

Banjo Kazooie/Tooie: I loooooooooooooooved Banjo Kazooie (and Tooie) for the Nintendo 64. It was one of my favorite adventure type games. I was so beast at it too. I still own both of these games because they’re classic and still fun (I don’t care how advanced video games get…not to say I don’t absolutely love current games). Anyway, most of these are the original but I think I have one remix in here somewhere. Enjoy!

Gruntilda’s lair Medley: All In One! If anyone played this game, you may recall that this game had the EXACT same jingle when you entered the start of a new world. It was the same jingle as when you entered Gruntilda’s lair…but for each ‘world’ it was tweaked a bit to sound reminiscent of where you were going. So…Mumbo’s Mountain sounded more tribal, and Treasurer Trove Cove had a pirate theme. Etc. Listen and you’ll see.

Boss Music: One of my favorite bosses from Banjo Tooie: Targitzan. Fucking love Trumpets ❤ Enjoy~

Lastly: Gobi’s Valley (Metal Cover):

Snowboard Kids 2: I L O V E D this game for the N64. I still have it too…it was so much fun. Another top game for the N64. The music for this game was pretty sweet too, I’d have to say. If you haven’t played it, I apologize to your childhood. At least you can enjoy the music 🙂

Intro: I posted a video to the actual intro, so you can watch to see what it looked like.

Snowboard Kids 2: Haunted Mansion. My favorite board. It had the best music and it was Halloween themed 🙂

Snowboard Kids 2: Starlight Highway. The hardest level…but the music was badass. So Space…like. 😛

Snowboard Kids 2: Final Boss. Your character vs. Damien Robot. Hardest part of the entire game (naturally) But so much fun. The music is great. I actually posted a video of someone actually playing the boss. So you can get a look at what the game is like when you’re racing. Enjoy! (P.S. It’s 7 minutes long, but the actual music and race itself is only 2 minutes…the rest is credits, so ignore the rest).

Super Smash Bros: Do I really need to say how AMAZING this game is? That, and I kick ass when I play as Kirby (followed by Link). Nothing else needs to be said. Please Enjoy.

Super Smash Bros Intro:

Super Smash Bros: Kirby Dream Land anyway? The best board in the game 🙂 I’m a bit biased…but whatever.

Super Smash Bros: Zelda Theme (Hyrule Castle): ❤

Mario Party 2:  I loved the Mario Party series, and I still do. I play the current ones for the Wii and 3DS but they don’t come close to the old versions from N64. Mario Party 2 is my favorite Mario Party of the entire series. Good times ❤ Please listen and enjoy!


Mario party 2: Horror Land (my favorite)

Bowser Land: Bowser is so bad ass. Just sayin.


I think this is a good place to stop. I could go on FOREVER with classic N64 games. I hope you all enjoyed this and feel free to share with anyone who enjoyed old games. See you all next time 🙂

  1. I remember a few of these games. I know I still need to try Snowboard Kids 2 and Banjo-Kazooie. I remember you beating my ass at SSB and I have a feeling you’ll do the same for Mario Party…
