Smile DKC Music

The music is one of the major things that make the DKC series so great, and I'm sure nobody will disagree. I was thinking about it last night as I listened to the sound test on DKC2 and thought that if the series didn't have such "serious-sounding" or "sad" music, a lot of the "feel" and "spirit" would be gone. Remember how the music, like the closing credits music, from DKC3 was so peppy, instead of epic like the first two times? I think that's one of the things that make that game not as good as the others. The levels also have generally happier music, and DKC3 is the weaker for it. These are my favorite DKC musical themes.
  1. Oil Drum Alley
  2. Gangplank Galleon
  3. DKC2 Closing Credits
  4. Jungle Hijinx
  5. Rattle Battle
  6. Hot Head Hop
  7. Hornet Hole
  8. Bobbing Barrel Brawl
  9. Fireball Frenzy
  10. Mama Bird

I... forgot that one. It's definitely somewhere on the list.

DKC2 Ice is also pretty good.

Here are my top 10 choices for best DKC series songs. DKC2 has the best music in my opinion. DKC3, the worst... That's not to say it's bad though. A DKC3 song appears on my list.

1. Stickerbrush Symphony / Bramble Blast (DKC2)
2. Enchanted Wood / Forest Interlude (DKC2)
3. Aquatic Ambiance (DKC)
4. Fear Factory / Oil Drum Alley (DKC)
5. Crocodile Cacophony (DKC2)
6. Nuts and Bolts (DKC3)
7. Gangplank Galleon (DKC)
8. Mining Melancholy / Kannon's Klaim (DKC2)
9. Hornet Hole (DKC2)
10. Ice Cave Chant / Slipslide Ride (DKC)

Gruntling your list is missing Klomp's Romp, Lockjaw's Saga, Jib Jig and Hot-Head Bop and that makes me sad.

I could only fit so much into a top 10 list! Those are all honorable mentions.

Try some of OC ReMix's for DKC music, they're all well done.

Does anyone have the series' soundtracks up for download? I can't find them anywhere, oddly enough. The soundtracks I have are woefully incomplete.

Does anyone else find it ironic that the song "Bobbing Barrel Brawl / Enchanted Riverbed" isn't in Brawl?
