Smash Bros. – The Next Generation: My Music Wishlist for Rhythm Heaven

Heaven must by missing rhythms.

MonkeyWatch   Do you have any idea how hard it is to come up with track ideas for a staged based around a series of rhythm games? I mean, let’s just go ahead and assume that medley’s are going to be used right now, alright? The best I can do at this point is pick the songs I think are the best for whatever barely excusable reason I can drum up. So let’s do this after the jump!

Built to Scale

The first tune in Rhythm Heaven for DS, and the backdrop to one of my stage ideas. It’s a simple tune, but it builds up to a crescendo that would be perfect if slightly extended for the standard two-minute fights. We could also mix in the second version, Yellow Construction.

Shoot’em Up

No lie. Just one of my favorite songs. Would love to get a high-quality version of it with proper guitars.

Remix 10

Altogether now! If you wanna catch everything from the game, why not the full medley?

Hole in One

It’s just so… It’s. I don’t know. It’s placid, and amazing in it’s simplicity.

Monkey Watch

Another stage setting, and also one of the best songs in all of Rhythm Heaven. This one is infectious: once it’s in your blood, it takes a good week of detox before you can stop hearing the clapping in your mind.

Air Rally

I’m going to go ahead and submit this, but part of me would rather this song show up on the Pilotwings stage.

Remix 3

Not going to lie: this is probably my favorite song in Rhythm Heaven. I’d love to see this song get the same high-quality treatment as Ashley’s Theme and Mona’s Pizza did in Smash Bros. Brawl.


I don’t know who needs their palms greased to make this happen but my god I will do whatever I can to help. I need that wubba-dubba-dub in my Smash.

Karate Man

This needs a good upgrade, but it has potential to be a pretty awesome rock ballad. Brawl doesn’t have any of those right?

Remix 8

Like before, another good vocal track with a great beat just begging for a high-quality edit.

Remix 9

See above.

Remix 10

The whole kit and kaboodle for Rhythm Heaven Fever. Not a bad shot.

Tap Trial

I love tap.

And that’s it for Rhythm Heaven. What egregious mistake did I make? Please feel free to point out my failures as a person and hopeful game designer in the comments below! I will never be so stupid as to forget your favorite song again!
