After some chatter from me and the music mods as well as about two months since i said there'd be stuff done about the featured music stuff oh dear i'm bad at being punctual, it's about time we get this ball rolling.

Music will now be featured in two ways. Firstly, an easy way to get on there is by being featured on the SMWC's YouTube Channel's Greatest Hits section. After that post acknowledging this earlier, I went ahead and featured everything from this year. However, the second way songs will be featured will be through you. Yes, YOU.

This thread is dedicated to nominating music you'd like to see featured, kind of like the hacks section but with a bigger pool of stuff to recommend! Of course, similar restrictions will apply. Once your nomination is in, one of our prestigious music mods will take a look (well, listen to it, technically) and if it's accepted, it'll be Featured!!

Please adhere to these four simple rules when nominating music!
- You may not nominate your own submissions.
- You may only nominate submissions listed as "Song" in the section (that means no Soundtracks, SFX or Misc. entries!)
- You may not nominate anything already featured (duh) or declined (double duh).
- Your nomination must be accepted into the SMW Music section for it to qualify. Please don't nominate songs still in waiting!
- Do not nominate more than three songs per nomination post. Likewise, do not make more than one nomination post at a time.

Like the featured hacks, it's a good idea to give a brief reason why you think your choice should be featured. Encouraged, but not necessarily required. With all this said, though, the ball is now in your court. Nominate away!

Note: This table reflects feature nominations and their status made within this thread, and not featured songs as a whole.

1. Final Fantasy II - Main Overworld Theme

One of the best overworld themes. It's also very versatile which is more memorable, even without the required samples.

2. Prince of Moonlight (Custom Song)

Sounds well and the instrument variations are great in my opinion.
About time 👌👌👌

Super Mario 64 - Bob-Omb Battlefield - Easy feature imo, it's a nailed 1:1 port; this alone would justify a feature.
Kirby Super Star Ultra - Masked Dedede - Same reason as above, incredibly spot on 1:1 port and well made.

Welp I thought I had more to nominate. These will go for now.
Metroid Fusion - Sector 4 (AQA) (Underwater Area). An atmospherically ominous port that conveys the isolation in the depths pretty well, and I like how the samples of SMW were used to convey that. Useful for haunted areas, worthy to be featured.

I second the nomination of the Final Fantasy 2 Main Overworld theme for its use of SMW's samples to create a piece that is depressing in tone as in the original game.

On Pixel Art Requests: I generally do not accept work unless I either have the time, if I see your project worth my time to contribute towards, and that is usually me doing the approaching to you on that.
-I also do not accept speculative work as I do have various art I made on-hand with me.
-I am more receptive to equivalent exchange of resources in which case, you can DM me wherever I have an active presence on for the details.
-Other times I'm availible for your project is C3 request threads I may run.

YES! I can choose what should be featured.

Here's one for now: 3D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night - Track 28 The sample quality is incredible, and it's a pretty dramatic sounding song.
Mario Kart DS - Bowser's Castle - Really good instrumentation, especially the distortion guitar and cymbal.
Donkey Kong Country 2 - Hot-Head Bop - Same here. The fact that the composer managed to recreate the bubbling lava using vanilla samples is impressive.
Sonic 3D Blast - Volcano Valley Act 1 - This sounds nice. I think I actually like it better than the original track.


I'm working on a hack! Check it out here.
MegaMari - Cirno Stage
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Final Hours (No Bells)

+1 to this. The port is really well made, practically no differences from the original.

Also, I'm nominating Our Mosts Histories, a really nice remix. Really fitting to a dark/spooky vibe.

Nominating Columns III: Column Dive
I really like the extra warmth given from the SNES hardware. Echo is a nice touch as well.

SM64 Bob-Omb Battlefield, while impressive, is not first choice as it sounds like another [impressive] Pinci Port and the N64 hardware limitations resulted in it being my least favorite console music-wise.
I feel like having a short explanation on why some nominations were declined would be better than just silently declining them.

Anyway I'm pretty sure this one was featured on Greatest Hits but for some reason isn't featured.

Also <3

to hear birds and see none.
i just didn't write them yet is all ya dingus hehe

In the case of Bob-omb Battlefield, declined on the merit that some note timings feel off, slightly off tuning as well as the insert size being rather massive to be considered a feature.

Masked Dedede had a unanimous agreement that the mixing was off, as well as similar tuning issues.

The rest just didn't really do it for us. Very good songs, though, and worthy for nomination.

e: oops how the heck did i miss our mosts histories im very sorry guys please dont hurt me

e2: it was the unsampled version of lonely halls that got greatest hits'd
What will happen with the now featured songs on this list here?
Our Mosts Histories and The Flyin King have been declined on the grounds that while they are both good songs, they don't quite meet the level we are looking for.

soundcloud / bandcamp / twitter / battle of the bits / buy our album / buy/stream my EP

they... get featured.

Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody - The Ground's Color is Yellow
I know, I know, it doesn't use uber epic ADSR or samples, but it has a special charm to it.
If you're on Firefox 70+, and you don't see the blur effect, go to about:config and enable layout.css.backdrop-filter.enabled and gfx.webrender.all
For the best aesthetics, use Chrome, or with some settings, Firefox.

Colour scheme based on the awesome ViM theme, Gruvbox.
Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody - The Ground's Color is Yellow has been declined on the merit that, while it is a classic and good (especially for its time), its overly basic sound holds it back from being featured in the present day.
why don't I add a thing anyway

Earthbound - Pokey Means Business!

Listen for at least a minute and a half, everything changes at 0:54 (if you've never played Earthbound you wouldn't know about it)

SMW modding is neat, I can't make music if my life depended on it though
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 - Chemical Plant Zone by Yung Gotenks.

This is a really impressive and accurate port of this MEGA DRIVE song. Sure, there's some minor differences here and there, but to not only hear this playing on the SNES, but be ported to AddMusicK, makes this a high feature for me. Especially since ARAM can be a total jerk sometimes.



My work not in progress hack Kubakku.

I'll just dump alot of songs here.

1 This is such a nice port, and I don't think it only fit bosses but it also could fit some fast-paced levels too.
2 Finally a good port of this song, not to mention that using the envelope samples must have been quite difficult.
3 Such an interesting port, superb work on the guitars and it's a nice melody.
4 Thinking about thos beans
5 Mostly same reasons as 2, but it's also a nice song.
6 Just amazing, the samples are excellent, almost sounds non-snes like.
7 Another accurate port, nominating this one because afaik this game's engine is an absolute beast and it's super hard to port songs from it.
8 Same as 6, just annother ggamer quality port.
9 SMW samples were used pretty neatly here, it's also a funky song and I like it

also fuck the rules
