Nintendo Sound Selection Vol. 2: Koopa - Loud Music


Like the Peach - Healing Music CD, the "Koopa - Loud Music" CD could only be obtained by redeeming 400 points in Nintendo's Club Nintendo program. For the second volume of the Nintendo Sound Selection collection, Nintendo has compiled a selection of loud, rockin', and just plain sinister music from a variety of Nintendo games.

The album kicks off with "Rainbow Road" from the Japan-only F-Zero X Expansion Kit (64DD). The track is basically the Rainbow Road theme from Mario Kart 64 redone F-Zero X-style. Tracks from eight different Mario games, including one each from Wario Land 4, WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and Luigi's Mansion, account for almost half of the CD. The "Fortress Boss" music from Super Mario Bros. 3 appears once in its original form, then again in track 22 as an extended "arranged" version by Nintendo sound staff, complete with wailing electric guitar by Mitsuhiro Hikino.

Track 22 credits:

  • Guitar: Mitsuhiro Hikino
  • Bass: Kenta Nagata
  • Digital Guitar: Kazumi Totaka
  • Arranged Version: Kazumi Totaka

Track 23 is also a performance by Nintendo sound staff.
