The top 100 Nintendo 64 themes in over 4 hours

I normally wouldn’t include something like this in, but I feel as though the amount of popularity it has gotten warrants a post here. Youtubers AccordingToSCIENCE uploaded a video in June that lasts 4:21:53 that shows their top 100 Nintendo 64 themes. I mean, dayum. That’s a lot of music. Anyways, here is the video:

The top 100 Nintendo 64 themes

It’s a nice soundtrack to have in the background while you work, isn’t it? It really showcases what the N64 was capable of both technically and creatively. There was quite a bit of effort put into making this video, with all the choosing, screenshots and commentary.


The makers of the video were even nice enough to provide us with detailed stats at the end of which games appeared the most on the list. And here they are:

  1. Jet Force Gemini (12 songs)
  2. Super Mario 64 (8 songs)
  3. Diddy Kong Racing (8 songs)
  4. Super Smash Bros (6 songs)
  5. Donkey Kong 64 (6 songs)
  6. Perfect Dark (5 songs)
  7. Kirby: The Crystal Shards (5 songs)
  8. Zelda: Ocarina of Time (5 songs)
  9. Banjo Kazooie (4 songs)
  10. Goemon’s Great Adventure (4 songs)

There were more on that list, but I skipped them so I could keep it at the top 10. From what you can tell, AccordingToSCIENCE really loves the Jet Force Gemini soundtrack, and I can see why. A lot of the music is either very powerful or very subtle in that game. Personally, I’m quite fed up of the music because it reminds me of wandering around for hours hunting for those damn missing Tribals.

But seriously, you should have a look. There’s even a bit of commentary under each entry that explains why that song was picked. It’s an interesting read, even if you only look at a few of them.
