#1 “Stickerbush Symphony” – Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
|GAME TITLE||SONG CHOICE|
|Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest||“Stickerbush Symphony”|
Why Was It Chosen?
What can I say about this song that hasn’t already been said? It’s beautiful, and it’s quite possibly one of the best songs ever crafted for a video game. Period.
But it’s not just it’s beauty that gets it on this list. It’s the way it’s used. This calm, relaxing, melodic tune is juxtaposed onto some of the most difficult levels in the game. Because of this – what would otherwise be an annoying, ridiculously frustrating experience is turned into something rather enjoyable – something you want to keep trying at. The peaceful-ness of the song, coupled with the difficulty of the levels is a combo that not many would expect – but manages to work out perfectly, somehow.
Honestly – if this were a ranked list, this song would still be #1 above all others.
