Serenade Sunday: Super Mario Odyssey, Castlevania, Shrek 2, and more!

Time for another Sunday morning dose of random songs that I’ve been listening to this past week! Welcome to Sunday Serenade — now let’s crank the jams up with…

“Mount Volbono” from Super Mario Odyssey — This is perhaps one of the best modern Super Mario songs that I’ve heard. *Great* use of percussion and sharp notes paired with a pretty good melody. Sounds like someone having a fun time wailing away on an oil drum there.

“Wings” from Epic Battle Fantasy 3 — We all remember this game, yes? Ah well, it’s still a short and catchy little tune that made it worth sifting through a bunch of music to find.

“Yet the Merchants Shall Go” from Breath of Fire IV — A merry jig indeed!

“Bloody Tears” from Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow — A variant on a familiar classic theme… and one that is very smooth to boot.

“Walking the Path” from Shrek 2 — This combat theme is both lively and cheeky, and I gladly added it to my library when I heard it.

“Boss Battle” from One Piece Grand Adventure — Hands up if you ever heard this one! Me neither. Guess it’s PS2 day, because I discovered this track and took a nice liking to its piratey vibes.

“Force and Furious” from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius — This is an intriguing mixture of ’70s funk and modern action cues, and I, for one, am all over it.
