As much as I enjoyed Mystic Quest, that particular piece didn't grab me as much as the other boss battle music did. The Super Meat Boy piece, on the other hand, is a lot more hard-hitting. Li'l Slugger it is!

I think at this point I'm just actively voting against Def.

Not sure what you were expecting from this entire ordeal other than proof that Democracy is the best worst system.

Using Final Boss instead of Battle 2 made me sit down and listen. I'd be too biased towards the latter, since I used it as a ringtone so long hearing it still makes me sit up and look for my phone.

The Mystic Quest track is a skillfull use of the SNES's sound capabilities. It's nicely rhythmic, and it doesn't lean too hard towards either "rock guitar shredding" or "triumphant fantasy orchestral", finding a middle ground inbetween.

The Super Meat Boy track is generic electronica that you could probably find in any given flash game.

Point: Mystic Quest.

At this point it feels like you're either voting against Defenestration, or against the fact that the FFMQ candidate you wanted wasn't nominated.  It's like gazing into a crystal ball set to November.

Me personally? That was just my honest opinion. C'mon.

I just really like The Battle of Lil' Slugger. Is that such a crime?

I think his ire was directed at the people voting for the FFMQ track, when it's already been established that it's not the good FFMQ track.

MQ barely edges out Lil' Slugger 10-9.

Next up:

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Final Boss Music

vs

FF7: Jenova

This was a hard decision for me despite not really having a dog in this particular race. Both are well above and over par by any measures, but shy of truly exceptional. They're very similar in what they communicate to me emotionally as well. Opted for the Inside Story track in the end.

I look at Jenova like I look at the Beatles. I understand why they're a big deal, but they don't personally hook me.

I gotta give it to Inside Story for this one.  J-E-N-O-V-A just lacks that extra oomph in comparison.

You know, I always hated J-E-N-O-V-A in game, but for some reason it kind of stands out by itself.

I guess it was mostly that Jenova was a consistently lame boss.

Jenova has a lot of good connotations for me, because I was reading a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book the first time I heard it.

Jenova's theme always seemed perfect to me, honestly. It was weird and alien sounding, and it just fit the Jenova, the naked headless woman creature with an eye instead of a nipple, just perfectly.

Mario and Luigi music has a more urgent feel to it. If there's one element a boss battle musical score should have, it's urgency.
