[[folder: ''Super Mario Bros.'' Main Theme (World 1-1)]]
* The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVgT-wyed0g original Super Mario Bros.]]'' theme. It may have been a simple MIDI tune, but it will be remembered till the end of time. Nearly every Mario game has had a remix of it somewhere.
** For example, the remake of the original in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgRP-F-TOOo Super Mario Bros. All-Stars]]''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXmeyxsZkL4 Here's the one]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''.
** And ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeLEJ_92Zgw Super Mario Galaxy 2]]'', which adds more instruments.
* A medley of the songs from ''Super Mario Bros'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTiyBbE0kOE appears]] in the arcade version of ''pop'n music 14 FEVER!'', a completely different game by a completely different company. For obvious reasons, it was excluded from the [=PS2=] version of the game.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsZh-B0k4vQ#t=0m33s special zone]] version from ''Super Mario World''.
* Ever wonder what Mario music would sound like if MotoiSakuraba composed it? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1saeXVWBEAc Well...]]
* The ''Mario Superstar Baseball'' commercial has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02FTz3GMWJw a beautiful rendition]] played on a stadium organ.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvZWxiUfrNo a cappella scat version]] from ''Super Mario Sunshine''. Great enough in its synthesized version from the game, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Umh6IPVcpZE the concert recording]] makes it even more awesome.
** It returned [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbTSNCfXiLQ slightly arranged]] as a mini-game music in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGwN5R41RJA Yoko Shimomura's arrangement of it]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', which was recycled for ''Mario & Luigi''.
** Also in ''Mario & Luigi'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TblCFr_Wm0 The Road to Holli Jolly]]. Very apt title.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xx3mhFPi7o S.S.H. rock remix of it]]. Amazing.
** Something tells me that those who liked this will also like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l1n69jTArI Mario Minor]] by Powerglove as well.
* How about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkEHyGq4Hrc Shell Rider]], another awesome rock remix of this classic tune? Created by [[http://www.carbohydrom.net/music.html CarboHydroM, and all his works are free to download]]!
* There's a Billboard chart for Ringtones. This song spent over 200 weeks in it. It sold over ''seven hundred thousand'' [[http://moconews.net/article/top-selling-ringtones-in-us-for-2006/ units in 2006]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGOdyPjOAbA This one]] from ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}} DS''. Just, wow.
* ''Super Mario 64'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2lDju7jJKU title]]. Our very first "It's-a me! Mario!" Hit those cymbals!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FCcreMO5nM version]] orchestrated by those [[AnimateInanimateObject possessed instruments]] in VideoGame/LuigisMansion! Made even more symbolic, when you remember that [[MeaningfulEcho both Luigi and Mario are brothers]].
* And yet another remix appearance in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZQ44DhBRMw Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games]]!''
* The ''SuperMario3DLand'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qf1-SIvPbEQ remix.]]
* ''Mario Party 9'' has the aptly-titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzyif3Mbyio Super-Duper Mario Bros]].
** Also in ''Mario Party 9'', we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSF1-oZmaE4 Museum]], a soothing calm piano mix; and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyNyyfzpovg Freshen Up!]], which is an excellent remix of the tune in the vein of ''Mario Kart''.
* The ''VideoGame/JustDance 3'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39L-M5nhx6Y version]], which mixes the original theme with the ''All-Stars'' version with original rhythms.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tag Tournament 2'' version. Yes, you read that right, a ''Tekken'' version. First seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCJAOaPiz5M the trailer of the Wii U version]]; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpWpNmQm84g here's the full version found in the game]].
* ''Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix'' gives us a techno-reggae style remix titled, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rbI4xsR49Q "Here We Go!"]]
* ''PaperMarioStickerStar'' gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFtBiavEOQA Gooper Blooper's boss theme while poisoned.]] [[DanceBattler Gooper Blooper]] actually ''[[EarWorm claps along]] [[FunnyBackgroundEvent to the song.]]''
* From ''VideoGame/NESRemix 2'', the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eC8bN4TJYs winter version]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario Bros2'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBISfv-6hfo Super Mario Bros 2 theme]]. The game may be the adopted child of the Mario series, but the music is awesome, and also there must be some love given for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeS5lCrD6tQ this brilliant jazz remix of it]] (kicks in around 0:25).
* Heck, even the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD0d-XC_Cho character select]]'' music is epic.
* The beautiful and evocative [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnbNNqf9UaQ ending music]] (starts around 0:57).

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario Bros3'' ]]

* Another oft-remixed classic is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh0OKW5cwVo Airship Theme]] that debuted in SMB 3.
** It was remixed, among other things, for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNAmyydSGX0 Super Smash Bros. Brawl]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario Land'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_-HvB3zbC4 Super Mario Land Overworld 1-1]] gets overshadowed by the Super Mario Brothers 1-1 theme, but it has its fans.
** Which is why [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WyyrAN5XV8 this remix]] exists!
** And also why [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsyY2O30tkM this beauty]] of a mix, an arranged mix from the Mario Freaks Orchestra Album, exists!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3TcdrhDeZA The World 2-1 and 2-2]] theme.
* The underground theme/Easton Kingdom theme is nice. Hear it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg6barmUXy0 here]]. There's also the awesome remix from Super Smash Bros Brawl, as heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0IhWGUFljk here]] and the Mario Freaks Orchestra remix you can hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGV-8tXmxzs here.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNDNvi5Dxg4 Chai Kingdom]] (Worlds 4-1 and 4-2).
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95QdXiS0m-c Marine Pop/Sky Pop]] theme.
* And then the perfect conclusion, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3Ij30btVao credits]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario World'' ]]

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5ODU-luXx8 castle music]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Uoocj_MXpw and the Roy's Castle vocal version]])
** This is a great [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3JWZ15RJPs trance remix]] of the castle music.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUKuH27n5Xo This OC Remix]] is the pure epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Vubw2q44FQ This acappella]] cover of the map theme, by the same person behind the Not Roy song.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZUFFzrymCI underwater theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dm1JV2jBo5E credits theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBp-hKT3l6w main overworld theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywXj_dYI-yw athletic theme]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gheM0BOvPeQ Here's]] the ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' remix.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3XFioN3faw Koopaling/Reznor boss music]] is also pretty awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlpQk-3SOSQ The music for the Bowser battle]] is sufficiently epic. Then Square-Enix [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWotVC78z94 remixed it]] for, of all things, the NearVictoryFanfare in ''VideoGame/FortuneStreet''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins'' ]]

* Super Mario Land 2 has the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_TqLp7yldY Star Maze]]. One of the few songs in the game that isn't a remix of another, and an amazing piece of work for the GameBoy of all things. Of course, the level in question is ThatOneLevel, with ThatOneBoss at the end, so you'll be listening to it a lot. Not that that's bad.
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x5azjuDYPU remix]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RLHRZ0370Q The overworld theme of the second game]] is so... Mario.
** This Orchestrated remix of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n63YYCjLY80 the overworld theme]] almost sounds professional. And it's just beautiful.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Super Mario All-Stars'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHbv0pIjF6I SMB 1 & 3 Underworld]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuZAZrV97x4 SMB Underwater]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oeOoHBqIeo SMB Castle]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF3Ci1Qt0kw SMB2 Overworld]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhtbUNh5zi0 SMB3 Overworld]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLh54XGB440 SMB Bonus Level]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OxkybzizhY SMB Bowser Battle]]
* SMB True Bowser Battle.
* ''All-Stars'''s version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yurf_37IgQM Super Mario Bros. 3's World 7 map theme]] only consists of a few notes, but ''boy'' is it [[EarWorm catchy]]. That's not a bad thing, because the confusing nature of World 7's map as well as the difficulty of its levels means a lot of time will be spent on the map screen.
** And then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6odpxWIOvO0 remixed]] for ''VideoGame/FortuneStreet'' for every time you invest in stocks, which happens nearly as often.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario64'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bq_jS6o3OoY The first Bowser theme]], and of course [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKNcEVU6j3U Final Bowser]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqwLjdJd2k0 Jolly Roger Bay and Dire, Dire Docks]], very atmospheric underwater music.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2Do7JoEnJg The "Psyche Out" minigame in the DS version]] uses a slower version of this song. It's even more relaxing.
** [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/14988 This remix by MasterFury is pretty sweet too.]]
** And from djpretzel, [[http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00405/ SunkenSuite]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rygsWPCjNQ Bowser's Road]], which comes right before the Bowser fights. Made better and better in the ''Galaxy'' games as well as the ''Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games'' series. Additionally, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'''s menu music is somewhat reminiscent of this theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-otEdq-Ozo The awesome secret slide music]] (also used as the primary music for [[ThatOneLevel Tick Tock Clock and Rainbow Ride]]).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEca0w5hKhY The theme played during the end credits.]] It really makes you feel like you've accomplished something.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6q6TKSQIgQ This amazing version]] of the "Underground" music. Funktacular.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hxh2h3P70Q Metal Mario]]. It's the Starman theme from the original Super Mario Bros., turned UpToEleven.
** See also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYmY99LRfRY Wing Cap]] theme. Take the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK0vebKhwq0 Starman theme]] (an awesomely appropriate theme in its own right), and add a soaring violin melody over the top for pure awesome. Incidentally, that violin melody predates ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. It was used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDGH8CuLP1E the invincibility music in Yoshi's Island]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw5HqClvDCc The main theme as used in the first stage, Bob-Omb Battlefield]] (as well as Whomp's Fortress, Tall Tall Mountain, and Tiny-Huge Island) is pure awesomeness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6e6kuIIuP0 The hub music]], so good Nintendo has remixed it for many subsequent Mario games.
* Go back, and listen to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HhdZMpSvXg File Select]] theme a few times. Let the memories soak back in.
** [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/9409 This remix by HouseMasta]], also heard in ''SuperMario63'', ain't half bad either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI8jT7LmoNA Cool Cool Mountain and Snowman's Land]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs65jP8GI0o Piranha Plant's Lullaby]] is quite lovely, particularly the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IA9qlZ3ruVc piano version]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emeB83Q6P1I Lethal Lava Land/Shifting Sand Land]]. Probably one of the most [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs psychedelic]] pieces of BGM music to ever come out of a video game, and nothing short of awesome. You can almost feel the oppressive, energy-sapping heat of the {{Trope Namer}}s for [[LethalLavaLand volcanic levels]] and [[ShiftingSandLand desert levels]] just by listening to this track.

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario Sunshine'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8UrigJ1yzA Delfino Square]]. Plain awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJ-dHTnH48A Underwater Exploration]]. Simply beautiful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4rdtF8eoMc The Book in the Bottle]]. This series has some ''great'' underwater themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uFpYEOGqV4 Boss Battle]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPy9ozXbWDE Noki Bay]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTzQVZprDlM Pinna Park]].
* And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jlt_D9zwLz4 final boss]] with the amazing piano.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sds9Me67e0E Casino Delfino music]] is very fitting for its setting. It even appeared as a minigame theme in ''Mario 64 DS''!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr2C0jkVQfE Sirena Beach]]. Don't you just want to say "Screw the mission", park Mario on the beach somewhere and just chill out for a while?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_syXnbZeVY Delfino Airstrip]].

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83FaRj0oG70 beach theme]].

** Remixed and improved even more in ''Mario Super Sluggers'' as heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAf0KVM50EM here.]]
** And in ''VideoGame/FortuneStreet'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7OiALdc1fY here.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81QYlX-ml8Q desert theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rvMRbcqTfk athletic theme]].
** This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU3nM7m9w_I 8-bit remix]].
* The final boss theme.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7LSsKrnqI8 remix of the Koopalings theme]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', an excellent remix of a memorable tune.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrAa-_SlRCY castle music]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ay6z65bgW8 remix]] which merges the castle and tower music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu9p5M9CHOg The underwater theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9hxJwInyck The volcano theme, from the second half of World 8]].

[[folder: ''Video Game/New Super Mario Bros Wii'' ]]

* The hub music is simple and pretty catchy, but special mention goes to the [[spoiler:World 9]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhWK8mlD2fU Map theme]], ''especially'' when the riff from [[spoiler:''Mario Kart 64''[='=]s Rainbow Road]] kicks in.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzTa02TywFE beach theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt-E4OMWTZE volcano theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kCGMUNYFeE castle theme]].

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1E1iCCo_ZRg underwater theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzQmc7Cx86Y underground theme]].
* Somehow, ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxuqG82WEtk athletic theme]] makes accordions awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbf-O08-Hak final boss theme]].
* Can you believe they actually [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAMCgOkj7lQ orchestrated a medley of songs from NSMBW?]] They even have the "bah" down.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario 3 D Land'' ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSZ_eRAeapo The Final Bowser Battle]]! Suitably epic and fitting for said battle which involves climbing to the top of Bowser's crumbling castle while he does everything he can to stop you.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG-yEMA3zhA The castle theme]] is up to par with the songs in the ''Galaxy'' series despite having synthesized instruments.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiDoI3ZvapY The clock tower music]] is a mechanical EarWorm for a mechanical level.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rOrQK1okuk This music]] makes the [[MusicalGameplay beat block levels]] something special.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZBt0yYrjv8 attack theme]] which plays on the final Bowser castle.
* And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIm-diI36ew the main theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cjnz97_8wMk Beach music]]. That song is catchy~!

* The remixes of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCYIVqucesk SMW boss theme]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=429-FXINEgU NSMBW title screen]] are also pretty awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXD5-4o6LZU credits theme]] is pretty catchy, even if it is very similar to the NSMBW credits theme.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiUmXzoUxFU track]] fits perfectly with the completion of a Coin Rush pack.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aIJF70PM3s DLC shop theme]] sounds pretty soothing, doesn't it?

[[folder: ''Video Game/Super Mario 3 D World'' ]]

* To give you an overall idea, most of the tracks in the game were recorded live, with real instruments, much as ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''[='=]s soundtrack was orchestrated. This should already clue you in on how great they are.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_LV3d6qkTk The main theme/trailer theme]] is pretty catchy.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LAZU92bulQ The Staff Roll theme]], a jazz rendition of the main theme which is nothing short of pure, unfiltered awesome.
* Both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iQr0aQRKsQ Athletic]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQB98BvZb30 themes]] sound great.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8hJqrK9mAQ The Ghost House theme]], an eerily beautiful track made even better by the violin.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07mUMj8jCcI The Beach theme]], a track heavily reminiscent of "Make Eggs, Throw Eggs" from ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland''. It sounds perfectly tropical, to the point you'd almost imagine yourself chilling on a beach.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOql9WqspUQ Hands-on Hall]], which plays on the {{Wutai}} levels, and mixes traditional Japanese and Chinese styles of music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWmPvBSd3Tg This incredibly catchy song]], which plays on the beat blocks levels.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Pgj1XfTiHI Mount Must Dash]], a remix of the Mario Circuit theme from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkEKa3LHRX8 This]], which plays during some of the lava and castle levels (4-Castle, 5-3, 5-Castle, 7-1, 7-4, and 7-7, among others). You wouldn't usually associate a pan flute and strings with lava levels, but this theme pulls it off splendidly. It also sounds a bit like ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''.
* There is also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7id4aa2aoE the jungle level theme]], which has a great beat and atmospheric feel...and also sounds a bit like ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''.
* The first battles with Bowser are accompanied by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jI1j6wk9MM4 this awesome track]], made from pure [[AutobotsRockOut rock music]] goodness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYusAQDMu44 These]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWyUMmWnAiI three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0_U0R9NTQw tracks]] are awesome remixes of already awesome tracks from ''Super Mario 3D Land''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGTitVS4KvA This track]] which plays on the tank levels is an epic, military-sounding song, and a worthy successor to ''Super Mario Bros. 3'''s Airship theme.
* The World Map [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LvZKeO34PA theme for World Bowser]] is an amazingly catchy jazzy beat that matches the {{Egopolis}} Big City/AmusementParkOfDoom theme for the world.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EamfD24qSt8 Hisstrocrat's boss theme]], featuring a fantastic Benny Goodman-esque breakdown on sax, bass, piano and drums.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj8AcxK9hnY Puffprod Peaks]], a beautiful, relaxing remix of Cosmic Cove from ''Super Mario Galaxy 2''.
* Battle on the Great Tower, Phases [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vhZcqbQI-8 One]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM1b3geh2wg Two]]. An epic pair of boss themes to accompany an epic final boss.

* Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix's soundtrack is comprised of nothing BUT awesome remixes of classic Mario songs. Great examples include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV1jy5aYD8I Underground Mozart,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7S7WEkopK8k Destruction Dance,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMFnGlbgyIc Blooper Bop,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gF_hMPyq3A Boo Boogie,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpGSx5x1YiA Bowser's Castle,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h713YJI3v8s Jump! Jump! Jump!]]
* The ''Mario & Zelda Big Band Live'' concert [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is a live concert of Mario and Zelda music arranged and covered by a]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_band big band.]] Predictably enough, each and every one of the Mario tracks is in itself a crater-sized vat of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaXoBdKj19E raw,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQoqro6fX5g pure,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkFGMh0AE3s concentrated,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivxV6WcsSP8 high-density,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeYt8GPrq-g undiluted]] '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2tU03JSnaE AWESOME.]]'''''
* Dr. Mario! Both main gameplay themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CB1fFeb1n8 Fever]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKqS68YRl4Y Chill]] are well-known to fans of the series, and even the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPPMMALzFes mode select song]]''.
** Naturally, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jf0jXfOeJI4 Fever]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVWgCp9jbU8 Chill]] have been remixed several times, and have recently been given two other companions, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFqQ0dcQ2Hw Cough/Cube]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-EFZpygbbg Sneeze/Que Que]]
** One of the few cases when they changed it, but now it '''rocks.''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrqXNRt_X5Q Custom soundtrack]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4oZcnJbnV8 of the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX3YtXeNU0M ZX Spectrum]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeKYOGiRcpM homebrew port]].
* The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1GwcWSgj08 Mario Paint]] theme.
** The ''epic'' Mario Paint theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mLa6C5qP0w remixed!]]
** WarioWare : Touched! gave us a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EKu_V0ahZ4 nice remix]] of same tune. The start may sound almost the same, but the real deal kicks in around [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EKu_V0ahZ4#t=51s 51 seconds]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyOPK7FmiJ8 Gnat Attack's first stage]] will have you playing from the start over and over again.
* For your listening pleasure, a song from a game not made by Nintendo, in which Mario does not appear, remixed for a game by another company that isn't Nintendo. It still belongs here. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dV2N-VcWLK0 Starring Wario!]], ''[[VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution DDR]] Mario Mix'''s take on the first stage theme from ''VideoGame/WarioWorld''.
* Even ''VideoGame/MarioIsMissing!'' (SNES version, at least) gets a piece of awesome audio. Just listen to the catchy ''Super Mario World'' theme mix that is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcZTfXyRRrY the Moscow/Cairo music]].
** The PC version also has some good tunes to listen to! Primarly, the song that's played in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCRAOXvjs6A Madrid, Spain.]] (Which, by the way, isn't in either the NES or the SNES versions.)
*** Well, sort of. The PC version is basically an extended mix of the SNES [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irI5zblfpWE Mexico theme]], which is excellent in its own right.
** While we're on the subject of SNES Mario Is Missing music, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wliUq8qBuY the Beijing/Tokyo]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKxIMHKLo0w the Athens/Nairobi]] themes are also pleasant to listen to.
* ''VideoGame/MarioVsDonkeyKong'' has a few outstanding pieces. In particular, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXlz41H3a0M the third Spooky House theme]], the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAq3QOHp-8U Mini Mario Level theme]] (and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vqiAe1UNs0 its remix]]) [[BootstrappedTheme that would become the theme of the series]], and the awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPpIj-121-g TRUE final battle with DK]].
* The Super Mario 64 Can-Can and RedZoneRemix. You can find the latter on the page it links to.
* ''Wario's Woods'' had some pretty catchy tunes:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMeYLw3coGA Round Mode.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4o9nv9LAo3w The single-player campaign/Versus Mode.]]
** Hell, even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22lu6RrF3p8 the main menu.]]
** The NES version has (mostly) completely different music than the Super Nintendo port, calmer and almost...solemn, made even stronger when you realize the NES version was the last first-party NES game ever released in America. Most notable:
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9LG0U1naTY The Title Screen.]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xQLZcl0R1Y The Ingame Story Mode Song.]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53taJgBM4z4 Round Clear.]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byUzd-8D6cI The Credits theme.]]
* ''VideoGame/MarioPinballLand'' has some pretty nice music, like the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOYyg3Kts9g Puffer Cheep]] Boss theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIM1v9rr8g0 Bowser's Themes]] and the theme for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04ROQF6Mopg King Tut]] which seems to be a remix of the Culex theme from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''.
* ''Game & Watch Gallery 4'' had some catchy music. Some highlights:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmO5vPiJTnQ Chef]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5j-hDZP3LI Donkey Kong]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JlvPvS7YRE Donkey Kong 3]]

* Throw the [[Videogame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Dark Bowser]] battle music and the ''Videogame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' final boss theme into a blender and add a few teaspoons of ''Videogame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', and you might get something as awesome as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p4vYVA1d7k Bowser vs Robotnik]].
