Now that we know Banjo-Kazooie are confirmed as a DLC fighter, this begs the question of what kind of content they'll come with.

If it's not obvious, this thread is for discussing what sort of music you'd like to see included alongside Banjo-Kazooie.

Feel free to talk about possible remixes and possible composers to do those remixes, or even music from other Rare games- don't be afraid to indulge in a little pie-in-the-sky thinking for this one!

I think it would be best to have a mix of main themes, world themes, and boss battles.
Any remix would be amazing, so I'm only choosing the ones I want a remix of most:

- Main Title [Remix]
- Mumbo's Mountain
- Treasure Trove Cove
- Gobi's Valley [Remix]
- Click Clock Wood Medley [Remix]
- Grunty's Furnace Fun
- Final Battle [Remix]

- Fun 'N' Games
- Glitter Gulch Mine: Racin' with Mary
- Witchyworld / Mr. Patch
- Terrydactyland / Terry [Remix]
- Grunty Industries / Weldar [Remix]
- Hailfire Peaks [Remix]
- HAG-1 Battle
- Credits (BK or BT)

- Showdown Town [Remix]
- Test-o-Track
- Banjoland
- LOGBOX 720: Jiggy Challenge
- Grunty's Final Challenge


With composers, Grant Kirkhope would obviously do a fantastic job remixing anything, but I'd also love to see remixes from any of these people:

- ACE (TOMOri Kudo / CHiCO) [example]
- Yoko Shimomura [example]
- Motoi Sakuraba [example]
- Shota Kageyama [example]

I opened up a playlist of all the original Banjo Kazooie/Tooie tracks, to refresh my memory and after listening to a majority of them I realized... I want them all!
Or more accurately, (and reasonably) when it comes to non-remixes they're all so amazing that pretty much whatever is chosen will make me happy. Just about any of these would make for great music to Smash to.
But Isle 'O Hags is a favorite of mine, so that's the main original track that I'd like to see. Maybe its pace is a little slow for battling, but I just love the track.

For remixes though, I agree with spoilerowl; I'm hoping for a medley or two covering a lot of worlds. With plenty of representation from Tooie too. For some reason, I'm a little concerned they'll mostly stick with music from the original.

The opening/title theme from B-K and B-T, Click Clock Wood, Freezeezy Peak, and both final battle themes strike me as the best candidates for standalone remixes. Oh, and Grunty's Furnace Fun too. (damn it, now I'm the one mostly picking music from the original)

I'd love all of those to be included; this is my personal list of wants:

-Main Title [Remix]
-Final Battle [Remix]
-Gruntilda's Lair [Remix] (would include each style, or most of them at least)
-Tooty's Theme
-Mumbo's Mountain
-Mumbo's Hut / Mumbo's Barbeque [Remix]
-Clanker's Cavern + Inside Clanker / Mutie Snippets Battle [Remix]
-Gobi's Valley
-Freezeezy Peak
-Mad Monster Mansion
-Click Clock Wood (Hub + all seasons) [Remix]
-Grunty's Furnace Fun [Remix]
-Jinjo Village + Isle O' Hags [Remix]
-Mayahem Temple
-Glitter Gulch Mine / Old King Coal [Remix] (+ Original)
-Witchy World / Mr. Patch [Remix]
-Jolly Roger's Lagoon (could be in a remix with Atlantis + Lord Woo Fak Fak's boss music)
-Hailfire Peaks / Chilli Billi & Chilly Willy [Remix]
-Grunty Industries / Weldar [Remix]
-Showdown Town
-Test-o-Track (though maybe it'd be weird to have both this and the new Mumbo remix...?)

I'm afraid I have too many listed as remixes, but oh well; I'd be fine if they were just their original versions, it's just some such as Clanker's Cavern seem like they'd be better for Smash if remixed (plus I'd actually like to hear how Smash remixes of every track would sound like :p ).

Well Joker got 11 tracks, so I'm gonna assume that Banjo gets that amount, and say, besides "Spiral Mountain", these are what I'd want:

2) Final Battle (BK1)
3) Main Theme (BK1)
4) Treasure Trove Cove - with some segments of Nipper's Battle and Snacker Attack
5) Click Clock Wood - maybe a remix that includes parts of spring, summer, autumn, and winter segments
6) Boggy's Race
7) King Sandybutt's Maze
8) Mr. Patch
9) Chili Billi & Chilly Willy
10) Cloud Cuckooland
11) Sergeant Jamjar's Lesson

I've given my list, though it's so amazing to hear the references to levels in Grant's Smash re-mix (never thought I'd be saying that). It does make me wonder since Nintendo asked him to put references to other levels, was this purely for added value, or to compensate for certain songs not making it in. These are songs I love, so would love to make it in, not necessarily which ones fit for Smash, as well as keeping it to 12 songs, biased towards Kazooie.

Banjo-Kazooie:
1. Main Title
2. Gruntilda's Lair*
3. Treasure Trove Cove*
4. Freezeezy Peak*
5. Rusty Bucket Bay*
6. Click Clock Wood
7. Final Battle

Banjo-Tooie:
8. Glitter Gulch Mine
9. Witchyworld (boss theme)
10. Jolly Roger's Lagoon
11. Grunty Industries (boss theme)
12. Hailfire Peaks (would be nice to have a combination of both like this)

I'm fine with songs from Nuts & Bolts, but I've only played 5 mins so I don't have much opinion on what should be in (and we now already have a much more amazing Spiral Mountain re-mix).

* Means referenced in Grant's Spiral Mountain re-mix that I know of--might mean they're not in, depending on how many songs there are total, which oddly enough are my favorite songs from the levels of the first game.

although I think that final battle
original for smash is good enough
if kirkihope knows but doesn't tattle
a remix to top it will be though

but you guys are ignoring
the most important thing
spiral mountain is boring
without grunty's bling

Forget palutena's advice
forget Snake's chimes
Starfox chatter won't suffice
if we dont get Da'Queen's rhymes

Some left of field remix choices I'd like to see:

Title Theme - Diddy Kong Racing
Crescent Island/Credits 2 - Diddy Kong Racing
Overture - Banjo-Kazooie
Mumbo's Mountain Hut area/Mumbo's Hut themes (Combined, bombbastic and jazzy-like)

Catchy, a nod to Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo's past plus I love how the overture is a mini medley of sorts.

Otherwise hoping to see some of my favorite themes in Mr. Patch, Weldar, Glitter Gulch Mine(Canary Mary race theme), Gruntys Furnace Fun, Jolly Roger's Lagoon(Land theme), Freezeezy Peak and Hailfire Peaks have a presence, original or remixed.

My 12 picks:
1 - Spiral Mountain (already done)
2 - Banjo-Kazooie Main Theme
3 - Freezeezy Peak
4 - Isle O' Hags
5 - Banjo-Kazooie Medley
6 - Fun n' Games
7 - Glitter Gulch Mine
8 - Cloud Cuckooland
9 - Mr. Patch
10 - Banjo-Tooie Medley
11 - *Nuts n Bolts representation*
12 - Diddy Kong Racing - Snowflake Mountain Medley (Everfrost Peak-Walrus Cove-Frosty Village)

Honorable mentions
1 - Hailfire Peaks (Fire and Ice Medley)
2 - Vs. Gruntilda (Banjo-Kazooie)
3 - Grunty Industries Medley
4 - Gobi's Valley Medley
5 - Diddy Kong Racing - Future Fun Land Medley (Spaceport Alpha-Star City)

I just want some DKR representation since the OST is property of Rare, it's related to Banjo and tbh it is my favorite game soundtrack ever.

So many good choices to pick from. My all time favorites:

Spiral Mountain
Mad Monster Mansion
Gobi's Valley
Freezeezy Peak
Click Clock Wood (Spring)
Grunty's Furnace Fun
Boss Battle (BK)
Isle O' Hags
Mayahem Temple
Mr. Patch Battle
Hailfire Peaks (Fire Side)

Click Clock Wood and Hailfire Peaks are probably my two favorite video game tracks. I'd be okay with not remixing those two.

I'll list ten, since Spiral Mountain was already revealed. (assuming that eleven is the average amount for this sort of thing, based on Joker and Bayonetta)

Treasure Trove Cove
Click Clock Wood
The Final Battle

Klungo's Theme
Mr. Patch
Cloud Cuckooland
Showdown Town
Banjoland

If we can get a non-Banjo-Kazooie song in there, I feel like Windy from Conker's Bad Fur Day would be a great fit for the stage. I also wouldn't mind seeing Ancient Lake from Diddy Kong Racing, as a reference to the last time that Diddy and Banjo met. If not, there are plenty of other great options (just look at the rest of this post!), but I figured I'd branch out a little bit to related franchises/games.

Let me think, 10 not counting Spiral Mountain. I'll try and limit my remixes


Banjo Kazooie
Main Theme (Remix)
Final Battle
Gruntys Lair (Remix)
Click Cluck Woods
Treasure Trove Cove

Banjo Tooie
Chilli Willi/Chilli Billi battle
Jinjo Village
Mr Patch Battle
Welda Boss
Hag 1

I do hope we get more, especially Tooie boss themes since most are battle ready remixes of the world theme

Only 10 songs without Spiral Mountain? Hmmm, let's see...

1. Gruntilda's Lair (Remix)
2. Clanker's Cavern/Inside Clanker (Remix)
3. Freezeezy Peak
4. Click Clock Wood (Medley)
5. Gruntilda's Lair (Furnace Fun Lobby)
6. Final Battle
7. Isle O' Hags (Remix)
8. Mayahem Temple
9. Glitter Gulch Mine
10. Cloud Cuckooland

I'd really Rusty Bucket Bay too, though.
But I think Banjo will get more than 11 songs.

Assuming they get twelve songs like Joker

Banjo-Kazooie
  1. Main Theme
  2. Spiral Mountain
  3. Grunty's Lair Medley
  4. Mad Monster Mansion
  5. Grunty Battle
Banjo-Tooie

  2. Grunty Industries
  3. Hailfire Peaks Dual Mix
  4. Boss Fight Medley
  5. Hag 1 Battle
Nuts & Bolts
  1. Showdown Town
  2. Banjoland
This was a very tough decision, especially for Tooie.

Just about any BK track will do, except maybe Clanker's Cavern. Not that it's bad, just not a good fighting jam. For some reason, even though I played and loved Tooie more as a kid, I actually don't like any of the tracks that much. Especially compared to OG BK. I don't even know what's considered the #1 track in Tooie, whereas in BK I'm pretty sure it's Click Clock Woods (Spring).

I didn't even consider the possibility of Diddy Kong Racing music, I think banjo is unlikely to bring any Diddy Kong Racing music into spiral Mountain, but I'd love to be wrong. If I had my pick of the litter I would go with crescent Island and Dark Moon Caverns.

I am interested to see how many remixes we'll get, because the amount of original N64-styled music tracks is rather sparce in smash and usually assigned to classic stages with N64-esque graphics.
Having this beautiful Hi Res Spiral Mountain with the old chippy soundtrack playing in the background is kinda weird. Oh well:

- Vs Gruntilda (Banjo Kazooie)
- Main Theme (either a new remix or the Nuts & Bolts Version)
- Mumbo Mix (Mumbos Hut/Mumbos Mountain/ Mayahem Temple)
- Click Clock Woods all Seasons remix
- Mr Patch
- Treasure Trove Cove
- Rusty Bucket Bay
- Mad Monster Mansion
- Glitter Gulch Mine
- Grunty's Furnace Fun + Tower of Tragedy Mix

It's so hard to narrow this amazing OST down to truly capture the essence of Banjo Kazooie in just 10-11 songs.

I didn't list Grunty's Lair as an extra song because the Gruntilda Battle already is a mix of it, however I wouldn't be opposed to have it remixed as a standalone song ;)
