Super Mario RPG Original Sound Version

Addenda
Yoko Shimomura's last soundtrack for the Super Famicom would invite her to create a musical hybrid of two classic game series. The title was Super Mario RPG, which included tracks inspired by the compositions of Nintendo game legend Koji Kondo and Final Fantasy maestro Nobuo Uematsu. Shimomura captures the essence of both these distinctive musical styles while putting together her own unique and energetic pieces. Listening to "Happy Adventure, Delightful Adventure" one gets the sense that the musician came to the daunting project with ample gusto for the task. Never before has the use of a traffic whistle for a theme song been handled more ingeniously. Super Mario RPG remains a favorite among fans in no small part due to the playful spirit the composer brought to two franchises already weighted with a wealth of musical ideas.
