Favorite Tunes #147: Hopes and Dreams

We're getting ever so close to #150 here on Favorite Tunes. Also, it is getting really freaking hot outside. These are the times when you want to be at the pool or indoors with the AC cranked up. Whelp, here's some music from Mega Man X5, Super Bomberman 2 and Super Street Fighter II among mothers.

Izzy Glow - Mega Man X5 (PS)

The X games have always favored rock music and as pumping as the soundtracks were on the SNES, the audio quality that CD technology offered did X and company a whole world of good. Izzy Glow's stage them gives you some smooth rock to jam out to as you turn robots into scrap metal.

Hopes and Dreams - Undertale (PC)

To say that Undertale has a magnificent soundtrack would be a huge understatement. It plays like a love letter to video game music, consisting of chiptunes, modern game music and even fusing the two together. The main theme of Undertale is so good that you never tire of hearing the many numerous versions of it with this triumphant version being a huge fan favorite.

Dive Man - Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (ARC)

The sound font that Mega Man 4 uses sounds a bit lighter than that of the first three games, but it still has some very good music. For me, Dive Man has always had one of the best stage tracks and he was one of the many Robot Masters to appear in the arcade game, Mega Man: The Power Fighters where his them received a sweet remix.

Battle 3 - Super Bomberman 2 (SNES)

Most Bomberman games have a single battle theme for Battle Mode. Super Bomberman 2 changes things up, having three different battle tunes with your stage of choice determining which theme is played. Battle 3 is an upbeat, slapstick style battle theme, perfectly highlighting the chaotic nature of Battle Mode.

Into the Labyrinth - Kid Icarus Uprising (3DS)

Pit was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but it wasn't until his 2012 game Kid Icarus Uprising that he made a long, long awaited return. The game has a plethora of weapons that can be upgrade and a ton of levels that can be played at varying degrees of difficulty. Among the composers of Uprisings outstaning soundtrack are Yuzo Koshiro and Masafumi Takada, to name a few.

Fei Long Stage - Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (SNES)

The home consoles can make for some interesting arcade conversions. The numerous versions of Street Fighter II fared rather well both in terms of gameplay and music. I love just love the way the guitars are used in the SNES version of Fei Long's theme. If you ask me, it sounds better than Capcom's CPS II version.
