* The fan favorite BGM [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J67nkzoJ_2M Stickerbrush Symphony]] almost didn't make it into [=DKC2=]. It was originally designed to be for [[UnderTheSea underwater levels]], but these didn't end up in the game (the closest would be levels that take place inside flooded pirate ships). Instead, the soundtrack was used for the bramble levels to juxtapose the difficulty of them.
