Yay more music! This is a medley arrangement of multiple tracks from Super Mario Galaxy, for the Smash Bros arrangement album expansion Harmony of Heroes: Final Smash. If you enjoyed this, there's plenty more where that came from in the expansion, including Metal Gear, Megaman, Sonic, Zelda, etc.
http://www.harmonyofheroes.net/finalsmash

To begin with, this is a list of all the Super Mario Galaxy tracks I arranged in this medley, in order of appearance:

Stardust Road
Into the Galaxy
Good Egg Galaxy
Starbit Festival
Gusty Garden Galaxy
Power Star Get!

Thanks goes to Laura Intravia for the wonderful flute performances done under very short notice. In fact, this whole track was done under short notice. In the space of just over two days, I spent over thirty hours on this track. So yep, basically non-stop work to get this done. I was disappointed that the aforementioned expansion album didn't have any Mario Galaxy music, and always wanted to arrange some of its music, so I decided to take on the crazy task of finishing this track in a couple of days. Didn't get much sleep, but it was WORTH IT.

I tried experimenting a little for this. It's basically an orchestral/chiptune mashup, with mostly orchestral supported by chiptune accompaniment/drums. Look forward to an entirely chiptune section later on though... it's my first time doing chiptune so I hope it's alright. This uses East/West Symphonic Orchestra Silver, Hollywood Brass Gold, Hollywood Strings Gold, Stormdrum 2, Omnisphere, Versilian Studios Marimba, Virtual Guitarist, mda ePiano, BiT BOX, Bleep, Magical 8-Bit, Sytrus, 3xOsc, and Vengeance. Also, those aren't the original Mario sound effects you're hearing in the background at some points. They're my own; hope I got them to sound like the real thing!

I worked very hard on this and consider it one of my best tracks to date. I hope you agree! Thanks for listening and comments would be much appreciated!

Amazing! Just... simply amazing! I really like the feels it gives me. A little joy blended with a little sadness. The best part is from 3:09 until the end for me. That part to me is just perfect. Amazing job on this. :)

Beautiful blend of music. At first, I thought you completely composed the entire piece by yourself, and I was shocked. Then I read the description and I realized that you made an arrangement that sounds good anyway.
Like the beginning introduction blending into the next song.
Good Egg Galaxy was (in my opinion) greatly improved with the chip tune and orchestral accompaniment additions you added.
Can't go wrong with Gusty Garden Galaxy.
Overall, loved transitions. Great additions. I have just one thing personally that I'm not satisfied with. Around 3:10, this is (again) my personal opinion, so it's fine if you disagree with me. The (saxophone?) instrument that plays there seems to have too much of a jarring sound for that type of smoother "soupy" music. Again, this is my personal opinion and you could have put it there for your own musical interests. Therefore, I won't detract any of my stars until I know why, if i subtract any at all.
Keep making more music! *McDonald's theme song plays* I'm lovin' it!

Ouch, I apologise for taking almost a month to reply!

Geez, I wish I could compose melodies this good. These are the kind of melodies which I hear and think "DAMN I wish I thought of this first" haha. I absolutely love the composition of Mario Galaxy's soundtrack.

3:10's sound is actually a pulse-wave-based chiptune synth. We might have to agree to disagree on this, because I love how it sounds haha.

Thank you for the constructive review!

Everything about this was amazing! This was like you dropped a nostalgia super weapon nuke on anyone who played the crap out of Super Mario Galaxy! I can't see how people wouldn't rate 5/5! Thanks for composing the amazing song that truly brought tears to my eyes! :D

Holy...

This is AMAZING! I played the crap out of Super Mario Galaxy, and hearing this was like a nostalgia bomb. The beginning was absolutely beautiful. Stardust Road was one of my favorites from the OST (I bought it :P), and it worked perfect as a beginning to this. All the sound effects were fine - they didn't sound exactly like the original, but I feel like that actually adds to it in some strange way. Huh. Anyways, mixing chiptune with orchestral was a brilliant idea. It completely worked in the song. The flute performance was amazing - tell Laura she did a good job! :P Overall, my favorite track covered here would have to be Gusty Garden Galaxy. I'm not sure why. It probably has to do with me liking the original song a lot.

I'm not even sure what else to say, really. This was an incredible job for just two days of work. Stuff I make takes weeks and I don't think I could even match this level of awesome ever. After listening to this, I've decided that I'm going to download Harmony of Heroes. Maybe I'll discover some more great tracks like this. Besides, I've been wanting to try and challenge myself with remixing songs for the original 12 Smash characters - maybe this will inspire me to actually go ahead and do it, lol.

Anyways, great job. This is going in my favorites.

Wow, what an encouraging review. I'm floored!

There is definitely a wealth of amazing music in Harmony of Heroes, and in its expansion, Final Smash. I really can't recommend it enough.

Stardust Road is one of the underdogs of the Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack, I believe. Not very well-known, but an absolute gem.

Gusty Garden Galaxy, on the other hand, is one of the more iconic tracks of the soundtrack. Still really awesome, and I think it's one of the main reasons I felt compelled to write this medley. I love that theme so much.

Thanks once again for the review, it brightened up my day! And don't ever doubt your own musical skills. The first step towards improvement is realising that you have the capability to do so. Plus, I took a listen to your audio and loved what I heard!

Glad you enjoyed this arrangement.
