Since Morte said something about it I figured an awesome theme thread would be in order

So, there's this fantastic series of RPGs called MOTHER that contain more charm and subtle depth than anything Square has ever pooped out in their best days but only one of the games came out in the us because there aren't enough metrosexual teenagers or weeaboo bullshit in them for sales. That game is called EarthBound and it has one of the best soundtracks on the SNES. I'll go into the other games later but EarthBound will get you the most street cred should you ever decide to cover any of this shit.

First off is some stuff that I think will fit the NESkimo style the best, rather than the most popular tracks.


Dat funky bass oh mah gawd


All I really need to say about this one is BATTLE AGAINST A MACHINE COME ON


Not only is this one a classic, but is probably the most versatile song on the ost, and has been arranged in many neat ways

Now for stuff that's just awesome and everyone knows its awesome


Boing, Zoom, etc. Fun mascot song


This is THE track that every band that covers EarthBound defaults to.


A personal favorite of mine, it's just so earnest.

And just to be a little indulgent, I'm posting the longwinded but heartwarming credits music

This thread is amazing and flawless.

Also, the New Age Retro Hippy music has been covered by everyone and their mother, but might be a nice choice for a very brief part of a song or something.

The few that stick out the most in my mind:



Both are just begging to be metal. I mean, come on, man. Listen to that shit ^ :\m/:

If they could do it for Hyrule's Castle, then there's no way this should be a problem, it's kind of along the same lines with the military theme for them

Sorry, that's the only game that I've played all the way through out of the series, so I've been itching to get those ones out in the open and let people know how great they are, haha.

Also, this would make an awesome power ballad:


Lighters in the air, not a dry eye in the house.


Oh, holy shit, and how could I have forgotten this?



The lyric version is so damn nice, too. Really just a feel good song... I'm just gonna leave this here. Dunno if the lyrics would work for Neskimos, honestly. I just really, really like the song a lot, haha.
