I agree. Shame the course is such a pain in what its theme kicks. Still an FS (Freedom Stage), but swimming to each half of the stage gets old after a few times.

Dire Dire Docks is great. I'm a fan of most underwater themes, but I guess that's just because I'm a sucker for soothing, ambient music.

Favorite Music Genre: I'm a hack for Mario music.
Favorite Video Game: I'm a hack for Mario music.
[

Uh, hell yeah.  Mario is the greatest franchise ever in my (admittedly often corny) opinion.  Also, Dire Dire Docks kicks ass, as well as the entire soundtrack to Super Mario RPG, and many Mario games.

Agreed, although I'm more partial to the Bowser themes.

While we're on the subject of video game music... Chrono Trigger has one of the best soundtracks ever.  My favorite is 600 AD.  F***ing incredible!

I concur. Chrono Trigger has so many great ones. In addition to 600 A.D., I love the forest theme, the Tyrano Lair theme, the "sad" theme, Lavos' second theme, and the Ocean Palace theme. Btw, here's a cool, Christmas-y arrangement of the 600 A.D. theme.

That's great!

Corridors of Time is another one that I think is just great, especially when people do remixes that emphasize the electric guitar a little better than the MIDI track can.  Many moons ago, I used to listen to that on the way home from my freshman astronomy class, and it increased the wonderment at the universe factor by like 10x or something.

There's also a mashup by this kid called "2 Mello" that adds corridors of time to encore by jay z, which is really bizarre and very amusing.

I can't believe I forgot to mention that one as well! I'm also a huge fan of Smooth McGroove's a cappella version of it.

The problem seems to be that you have to set up a separate log in to make predictions. Not sure how they get linked together.
