Thanks Agent for approving!

So, I don't believe there's been a KH rumble, though no doubt it should get attention in a Final Fantasy forum.

So it's like this. I was actually originally only thinking of doing a KH music rumble and posting it in the VGM forum since I'd get more activity and I was gonna use many and make that one last a while, and then based on how successful it was I would have considered making it into a general KH rumble and do more editions and have it shipped here. But, Denny wouldn't let me do that. I just hope I get some activity. Nonetheless, I will keep to what I planned and start with the music edition.

So here's what's gonna happen, I'm not sure yet how many I'll use, 32, 48, or maybe even 64, but you're all free to post as many nominations as you can in this thread, from ANY of the volumes, KH1, KH2, or even CoM (but please, no 358/2, its not out in the west yet and most of us aren't familiar with it just yet). Just everyone post as many nominations as you like, then once I stop getting them I'll see how many of my own that haven't been said I want to include, and then see if I can reduce/add a few more to get a nice even number. I can think of plenty I would want, better let everyone else go first.


So, let the nominations begin.


EDIT: Thread has been moved, thanks to Agent. And thanks to Rapture, Jessie, and Denny for approving. Hopefully it doesn't cause too much rivalry with arthur's. Then again, I don't see that as a problem, the Classics section tends to have more than one. Anyway, title's been changed to make it seem less out of place.

What exactly do I have to nominate? I'm not familiar with these "rumble" threads.

Zak
07-30-2009, 04:55 PM
Just name a bunch of songs from the games you want me to include.

Agent0042
07-30-2009, 11:02 PM
Oh, I thought you were going to start this in VGM, so I kept looking for it there. So you decided to start it here instead? Oh-- wait, I see, Denny wouldn't let you do it. Okay, that works, I'm happy to have it here.

So I just got a late PM from Rapture (I asked him first, before I asked Denny after being tired of waiting for him to reply, but Denny replied first) approving me posting it in VGM. Sure it's too late now, but I kinda regret not waiting now considering the activity. It's been over 24 hours and I've only heard from one person. What do you think Agent?

IDX
07-31-2009, 09:44 AM
That's a shitload of music...

Zak
07-31-2009, 10:24 AM
Heh, that IS over 64... I did say as many as you like, though.

If no one else adds anything I'm gonna start soon, either narrow it down or find some way to even it and keep as many as I can. Of course first I will double check if there's anything Agent didn't say that I want, but I doubt it.

EDIT: I counted 78 that Agent said, but actually I can add two to that. 80 is a lot, but it is even enough to half down to a small number. Most of what what I would say was already said, I haven't got through the whole list but I can actually think of one that hasn't.

Anyway, if I do get a lot of rounds, I hope to get a lot of activity. Which is why I wanted to do it in VGM... well, we'll see what happens.

Byrd
07-31-2009, 01:26 PM
We should advertise...

Agent0042
07-31-2009, 03:17 PM
Well, I don't mind if Zak puts it in his signature. Zak, if you still want this in VGM, I can move it there.

It doesn't surprise me that nobody else is nominating-- I don't often get a lot of nominations for my rumbles either. People just want to vote.

Zak
07-31-2009, 03:54 PM
I'll let you know if and when I want it moved.

Jessie
07-31-2009, 04:48 PM
The only other one i'd add to the list is Traverse Town from Kingdom Hearts.

There's another active rumble in the VGM section, not sure if it makes any difference, but just thought i'd mention it in case it does.

Funny how i didn't recieve a pm on this matter, seen as i'm online the whole time. Oh well.

Zak
07-31-2009, 05:13 PM
I was gonna PM you next, would you have approved it?

I just messaged Denny again.

Jessie
07-31-2009, 05:35 PM
I would approve of it seen as Kingdom Hearts doesn't have a section of it's own and it is VGM related.

Zak
07-31-2009, 05:48 PM
Cool, well, hope he sees that, presenting a stronger case for myself. I directed his attention to this thread, now we wait... in the meantime, post nominations.

Also, I might eliminate a few of Agent's unbolded ones as a compromise to others...

Also, Kingdom Hearts needs a section. :)

IDX
07-31-2009, 07:12 PM
Are we counting the music from the secret video from KHII:FM+? I know the music from the first FM hidden video was available from the first FM soundtrack and was just curious.

Agent0042
07-31-2009, 07:29 PM
Also, Kingdom Hearts needs a section. :)
Well, of course it does. And we've campaigned for one before, but it's so hard to ever get anything done around here, administrative-wise...


Oh-- and Zak, I made a minor edit to my nomination post-- I had a bold that wasn't closed properly.

Zak
07-31-2009, 09:26 PM
Are we counting the music from the secret video from KHII:FM+? I know the music from the first FM hidden video was available from the first FM soundtrack and was just curious.

Was it in any game that was released in the US?

Well, either way, preferrably not unless you feel REALLY strongly about one.

By the way Agent, still waiting from Denny, but if you DO move it to VGM, since I can't edit my own thread title, can you change it to "The Kingdom Hearts Music Rumble"?

IDX
07-31-2009, 10:38 PM
I'm just saying because Agent already put Another Side for the first Kingdom Hearts. I don't know what the other is called, but I like it a lot.

Agent0042
07-31-2009, 10:46 PM
Yes, Zak, I'll make sure to do that before it's moved, assuming it is moved.

Zak
08-01-2009, 02:55 PM
Hmm, if he doesn't reply to me (or this thread) in the next 24 hours, go ahead and move it. Also, why haven't you voted in the XII round yet ;)

Agent0042
08-01-2009, 03:52 PM
Because I was busy when you posted it and then I forgot it was posted. Why haven't you voted on X-2?

Zak
08-01-2009, 04:06 PM
Guess it's been overshadowed by other topics in the main index and I forgot. Probably the reason for my lack as well.

BTW, I realize there are a bunch I'd include myself that you didn't mention, so I'll say this now. I'll most likely be including only one Hikari, one Hand in Hand, one Destiny Islands, etc. unless the versions are drastically different.

I wasn't planning on posting my potential nomination list, but I guess I will so we know what's being compromised between. But before I do, I'll wait for more, or for VGM-frequenters nominations if this does get moved.

Agent0042
08-01-2009, 05:57 PM
Sorry, but don't be so quick to just include one version. The versions are drastically different. If you're going to pare away multiples, go ahead and pare away those on Dearly Beloved and maybe Destiny Islands, but I'd be more careful when it comes to Hikari and Hand in Hand.

Zak
08-01-2009, 06:18 PM

I know, they are. But I'm more likely to use two versions at most than three.

Agent0042
08-04-2009, 04:33 PM
Fair enough. You do as you feel works best. In any case, I'm really looking forward to this getting up and running now that we're back.

Zak
08-04-2009, 05:05 PM
Another thing I didn't mention about using multiple versions is that I might want to make room for some of mine, as well as some of other nominators we might get if this is moved. Granted I did say anyone's welcome to nominate as many as they want, but since others might nominate a lot I'll have to come to a compromise. I mean, 78 is a lot, I haven't made a final decision in how many exactly I'm planning to use, but the chances of me using every single one is quite slim. Not entirely impossible, though, after all I did say I was planning to make this be a long edition to make moving it to VGM worth it. I have the patience for a long one.
But don't worry, multiple versions aren't gonna take elimination priority if I must narrow it down. But, there are a bunch I'd like to use you didn't mention. I'm even okay with 96 since it divides by 32 and all.


Due to the outage I'm gonna give the move 24 more hours, if I don't hear from him, move it. If he sees it hopefully he'll understand.

Agent0042
08-04-2009, 05:12 PM
That's cool with me about the moving. But how much longer are nominations going to remain open?

Zak
08-04-2009, 05:35 PM
At least until after it's moved, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, I want to see how much activity we get and then I'll decide when to close them.

Agent0042
08-05-2009, 09:32 PM
Okay, this thread is now in its new home, for the time being.

wolfmaster913
08-05-2009, 09:45 PM
I can't wait for this to get started. I had no idea that this was even in another board, I guess I should venture onto more than just Music and FFXII. As for nominations, I believe that Agent pretty much summed up what I would like to see in a music rumble for KH.

Zak
08-05-2009, 10:33 PM
Thanks!

Heh, and thanks wolfmaster for proving my point and strengthening my case for having this moved here. :)

Alright, I'll give a few more days for nominations, then I'll post mine, then I'll find a way to somehow either combine with Agent's or use all of them...

BTW, Agent, I was wondering, what is the difference between "Having a Wild Time" and it's "Previous Version"? I listened and they sound the same to me, and if they're different when is the latter used? I remember wondering that a while ago and thinking they were just the same with two different names for whatever reason, but seeing as you were specific about it I take it you see a difference?

Agent0042
08-06-2009, 12:21 AM
Hrm, you know, I guess one is really just a shorter cut than the other. And the Previous Version isn't used, it's a bonus on the soundtrack. Just go ahead and use the other, original version.

Zak
08-09-2009, 02:48 AM
So as I promised I'm gonna post my list of what's left now, that I would have said that Agent and the others didn't. Then I'll try and sort it out and maybe start tomorrow.


A Walk in Andante
Destiny's Force
Blast Away 1 OR 2 (or both, but would feel weird to use 3 and not at least one of the others)
Tricksy Clock
Welcome to Wonderland
Go For It!
Merlin's Magical House
Shipmeister's Humoresque
A Day in Agrabah
A Very Small Wish
Monstrous Monstro
Under the Sea
An Adventure in Atlantica
This is Halloween
Spooks of Halloween Town
Captain Hook's Pirate Ship
Scherzo Di Notte
The Escapade
Tension Rising
The Afternoon Streets
Laughter And Merriment
Gearing Up
Waltz of the Diamond
Dance of the Darling
Home of the Dragons
Dance to the Death
Vim and Vigor
The Underworld
What Lies Beneath
Rowdy Rumble
Monochrome Dreams
Old Friends, Old Rivals
Floating In Bliss
Isn't It Lovely
Part of Your World
The Corrupted
Space Paranoids
Sacred Moon
Deep Drive


That's actually a lot more than I thought... but I think something can be done, I'm gonna have to recount since I noticed some of Agent's list mentioned stuff twice, as it's used both in KH1 and KH2. Gonna have to recount and somehow fairly decide what to cut, and... we'll start.

I'm gonna say a few things now, though.

-I think I'm only gonna use two Hikari's, "Simple and Clean" being one. Unless I change my mind and see something I have more issues with....
-I don't think I'm gonna use both "Precious Stars in the Sky" and "A Twinkle in the Sky" even though they have their differences.
-I might also not use "Another Side"... hope that's not too much of an issue as it wasn't bolded.
-I might use only one Dearly Beloved.


I'm closing nominations though, but to make elimination easier, if any of you see anything that was mentioned by either of us that you don't see yourself EVER voting for, say so.

Agent0042
08-09-2009, 03:05 AM
Zak, I really feel strongly that both Kingdom Hearts - Hikari [Kingdom Orchestra Instrumental] and Hikari -KINGDOM HEARTS Instrumental should be included. The first is the opening demo music and is a very strong piece, while the latter is a key story moment piece that plays during the sequence where Sora plunges the keyblade into his heart and becomes a heartless. Don't you think both are really important pieces?


Other than that, I'm fine with everything else you said-- I don't see anything else that I would object strongly to the loss of, but I feel very strongly about those two Hikaris.

Zak
08-09-2009, 04:35 AM
Okay, I see we have a lot of tracks. Let me ask another thing, I'm thinking of using only two of the three "Hand in Hand"s, and only KH1's Destiny Islands.

As for "Hand in Hand" there is:

Hand in Hand
Hand in Hand Reprise
Hand in Hand KH2

I'm most looking to get rid of "Reprise", out of those three. One's the original, Reprise is a little bit orchestrated but sounds a little to close to the the beginning of the original, KH2 is orchestrated AND drastically different. This okay?

I'm also looking to get rid of KH2 Destiny Islands. I know it's different, but... meh.

Now, unfortunately the number we have is something like 110, which is far from 96 or 128 or anything even enough for me, so I might be forced to post the list and make an elimination session. Though, I kinda want to cut some of stuff off before I post the final list I want to be eliminated from.

Agent, I might end up just cutting most of your unbolded ones... hope that's not too big a deal. But first I want to calculate just how many I'm dealing with.

Agent0042
08-09-2009, 04:39 AM
The "Hand in Hand" that you want to cut, that sounds fine to me. As for the "Destiny Islands," well, I suppose it's your choice, but personally I like KH2's "Destiny Islands" more than I like KH's.


As for cutting a good portion of the unbolded, fine. The ones I bolded I did bold for a reason and I likely wouldn't feel to upset if anything that wasn't bolded doesn't get included.

Zak
08-09-2009, 05:09 AM
Actually, forget everything I said above. I'll use all the Hand in Hands, final decision, I'm using 112.

I know it's a lot and it means this might take half a year, but it's a nice divisible by 16 number that's very close to how many I have, meaning I either have to take two off or add two.

Shouldn't be too hard... I'm starting tomorrow, but just so you know I'm probably gonna be REALLY busy once school starts, I will still update though. It'll probably be the last thing in the day that I do, though, not much of a difference.

112 songs... 56 battles in the first round, we'll see how far this goes. Even if it doesn't finish, it'll be fun while it lasts :P

Agent0042
08-09-2009, 05:12 AM
We'll have to attract some attention. I would imagine most people who are interested probably already know about it, but just in case, I'll post a thread about it over at the Kingdom Hearts group.

I've already rounded/invited everyone I know offhand on the site that's a Kingdom Hearts fan, but if anyone else knows any others, feel free to give them an invite to the group and we can get this thing organized.

Zak
08-09-2009, 05:21 AM
Sure, thanks, I'll put it in my sig. As a matter of fact, I've got the list all ready and am prepared to start the first round tonight.

It might only seem like we don't have attention, but I think the reason you and I are the only ones posting is because everyone else who cares is waiting for me to start, hence who I will tonight. But by all means, please do that. I will also put a sig link.

I'll post the first round sometime in the next half hour.

Zak
08-09-2009, 06:58 AM
Okay, here it is, the LONG HAUL! Battles are randomly paired, and I'm all set to begin. Wish I could somehow edit the thread title to say we started.


Round 1 - Battle 1

Shipmeisters Humoresque - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/39%20-%20Shipmeisters%27%20Humoresque.mp3)

KH1's Gummi Menu theme, and the only one, as the first installment had a much simpler gummi system. A very nice theme which serves as a nice break from the rest of it.

VS.

Spooks of Halloween Town - KH 1 and 2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/54%20-%20Spooks%20of%20Halloween%20Town.mp3)

Halloween Town's battle music... a very good combination of eerie and upbeat enough for battle. Game original, unlike the normal H-town music. Unless a variation of it was somewhere in Tim Burton's movie that I don't know about.

As you may know, I tend to vote in my own rumbles, so my vote's for Shipmeister's Humoresque. I'd spend a lot of time on the gummi menu just to listen to it.

Also please bold your votes.

Agent0042
08-09-2009, 07:22 AM
Well, "Spooks of Halloween Town" is original, though you can hear strains of "This is Halloween" within it.


In any case, neither of these were on my nomination list, but Shipmeisters Humoresque. I'm not sure I can see voting it more than a round or two, though.

ravenous19
08-09-2009, 09:25 AM
Definately a good idea moving it here - I know I rarely venture outside of A&VGM, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this today.

I really wanted to vote for 'Spooks of Halloween Town', but after listening to both songs I have to vote for Shipmeisters Humoresque. It just has a nice simply catchy-ness to it that's hard to not like.

IDX
08-10-2009, 02:32 AM
Shipmeisters Humoresque for the reasons ravenous19 already said about it lol.

I also like how you included links to the music, Zak. I know I don't know that many KH songs by title alone (like I do with FFVIII). Sooo....kudos to you :D!

Zak
08-10-2009, 03:38 AM
I haven't yet decided what the blowout criteria will be, but if I get no more votes by tomorrow, then it's officially 4-0.
Granted, I should still give this thing a chance to attract attention seeing as it just started.
BTW Agent, just curious, maybe my ears aren't good enough, but I don't hear strains of "This is Halloween" in it, it sounds like something of the same style but a completely different melody.

Anyway, round's still open.

Agent0042
08-10-2009, 04:18 AM
Zak, as you play the tune, just start singing "Halloween Halloween, Halloween Halloween!" and maybe you'll be able to hear it a bit better. But yeah, that's really all I meant-- similar style, not necessarily the same melody.


I also like how you included links to the music, Zak. I know I don't know that many KH songs by title alone (like I do with FFVIII). Sooo....kudos to you !
I suppose the links are useful-- to those of you who aren't fans enough to have purchased the soundtracks, like I have! :D

wolfmaster913
08-10-2009, 04:30 AM
I'm gonna have to go with Shipmeisters Humoresque

IDX
08-10-2009, 09:43 AM
I suppose the links are useful-- to those of you who aren't fans enough to have purchased the soundtracks, like I have! :D
I bought the second one! Just not the first one yet! I still like FFVIII's music better. But the KH music is still quite good imo.

Zak
08-10-2009, 03:36 PM
Agent, wow... I never made that connection before! I can sort of hear it now! Damn, that actually makes me kind of like it less, I prefer when the battle theme for a place is something different and original rather than a sped up version of the normal thing. Well, to me it's different enough.
And IDX, ditto about the music from FFVIII, best OST yet.

Anyway...

Shipmeister's Humoresque 5-0 Sppoks of Halloween Town

So, not much love for Halloween Battles... yeah, the KH1 Gummi building theme is just that awesome.

Round 1 - Battle 2

Destati - KH1/2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/76%20-%20Destati.mp3)

One of the more classic-ish tracks, very operatic and mysterious. Quite something, this track is. In the games, it's used mostly for the second half of the "Dive Into the Heart" sequence. It's also at the end of the KH1 OST, as a Bonus track (unless it's in the game somewhere in the end I'm forgetting?)

VS.

Courage - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/29%20-%20Courage.mp3)

Short looped theme from KH2, used in a few scenes where you see Hercules fighting someone or something. Also used near the end of the World That Never Was when you run into Malificent and Pete in the red misty area before the last screen.


I pick Destati for my vote, Courage... not really feelin' it so much.

Agent0042

Well, Zak, it's used as a bonus track at the end of the disc, but there's also a game version called "Dive into the Heart - Destati."


I really like Courage, but since you're apparently combining all the Destatis, I'll go with that. It really is very iconic.

wolfmaster913
08-10-2009, 06:26 PM
Definitely Destati.

08-10-2009, 07:57 PM
Destati

Zak
08-10-2009, 10:05 PM
Agent - well, you DID nominate Destati and not Dive Into the Heart which no one nominated, but I always saw "Dive Into the Heart - Destati" as two seperate pieces in one track, like FFVII's "Opening - Bombing Mission". And it sort of is, because in the game itself during the awakening sequence, only the first part of DitHD loops over and over again, and after a certain point (I think when you get asked the questions) only the second part (Destati) loops over and over again. The bonus track, the Destati I linked to, IS that second loop from DitHD with some stuff added, so yes, I'm having it represent both in the description.

Jessie
08-10-2009, 10:13 PM
Destati

IDX
08-10-2009, 10:53 PM
Destati. I don't really remember the beginning of the song, but after that, it was obvious of where it was played. It's played when you're choosing your "power" and giving up something else (sword, dream shield, dream rod place).

ravenous19
08-11-2009, 02:33 AM
Destati for all the reasons already stated.

Zak
08-11-2009, 06:34 PM
Total blowout here...

Destati 7-0 Courage

A serious blowout there by Destati.

Round 1 - Battle 3

Bustin' Up On the Beach - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/06%20-%20Bustin%27%20Up%20on%20the%20Beach.mp3)

The "battle" music for Destiny Islands. Or rather, for the duel challenges with Selphie/Tidus/Wakka/Riku. But every place seems to have something that substitutes for battle music. Though, oddly, in Chain of Memories, the Destiny Islands battle music was not this but "Night of Fate" instead.

VS.

Welcome to Wonderland - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/21%20-%20Welcome%20to%20Wonderland.mp3)

The main theme of... guess where? As far as I know, this tune is Shimomura-original and not from the Disney movie. It's perfectly fitting for this weird little place.

My vote is easily Welcome to Wonderland. Kinda reminds me of the nutcracker! Speaking of which, anyone looking forward to Tim Burton's movie?

Agent0042
08-11-2009, 06:38 PM
Bustin' Up On the Beach -- to me one of the game's better regular battle themes.

Though, yes, I am looking forward to that Tim Burton film.

Welcome to Wonderland 4-3 Bustin' Up On the Beach

First non-blowout, and a close one at that, but Wonderland takes it this time.

Round 1 - Battle 4

The Afternoon Streets - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/15%20-%20The%20Afternoon%20Streets.mp3)

This twinkly theme plays in Twilight Town, when you're Sora. Though, oddly, in CoM's Twilight Town it uses Roxas's TT music and battle music. Ah, memories of just starting KH2...

VS.

Old Friends, Old Rivals - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/48%20-%20Old%20Friends,%20Old%20Rivals.mp3)

The battle music of the special monochromatic world, the Timeless River. Reminds me of collecting Frost Stones... also although it's KH2 exlusive, it sounds a little like a remix of Monstro's battle music, dontcha think?


I love them both, but my vote's for The Afternoon Streets, quite easily. I even like it better than "Lazy Afternoons", the other TT theme as Roxas.

i know this is most probably late to be saying this but would you be able to include the final boss song in 358/2 days i have forgotten what it is called but it is when you are fighting the final version of Xion if it is not possible then thats ok but if you could please direct me as to where i could find this it would be most appreciated.

LOL Itachi... please tell me you're a sock puppet. Aside from the fact that we're already far into this, didn't you see my original post before this started saying I'm not using any 358/2?

Anyway.

The Afternoon Streets 5-1 Old Friends, Old Rivals

Not as many votes this time, but still, Sora's Twilight Town is a clear winner. I kind of expected it to be more even, but not much love for the king's world in this case.

Round 1 - Battle 5

Neverland Sky - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/58%20-%20Never%20Land%20Sky.mp3)

Even though it's technically in London and not Neverland, this is the theme of the Clock Tower... where the keyhole and all the time treasures are... and the Phantom. Guess they had to stick a happy sounding theme somewhere in Neverland if the island itself isn't visited and the rest of it is on a scary ship (it is in 358/2 though).

VS.

Space Paranoids - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/19%20-%20Space%20Paranoids.mp3)

As the title says, the theme for Space Paranoids, a KH2 original special world and the home of Tron. A very... cybertonic-sounding theme, kinda creepy like you're going through cyberspace, pretty psychedelic. Yeah.


Extremely hard choice for me, would hate to see either of them go. I'll cast a vote for Space Paranoids, augmented ftw. Also when it was first revealed there would be a Tron world and they showed us pictures from it, I was imagining what the music might be like there, and this is EXACLY what I imagined.

Round 1 - Battle 6

The Encounter - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/18%20-%20The%20Encounter.mp3)

One of KH2's boss themes, this one is used for mainly Disney-character bosses, like Oogie Boogie, Jafar, Scar, Hades, and the MCP. It's also used when you fight alongside King Mickey for the first time against a bunch of Nobodies in Twilight Town.

VS.

Precious Stars In the Sky - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/40%20-%20Precious%20Stars%20in%20the%20Sky.mp3)

KH1's World Map theme. A bunch of the other themes in the game build on this core tune.


I usually go for the more upbeat one, but this time my vote is for Precious Stars In the Sky. It's great and I even like it more than KH2's map theme. There are other boss themes coming up I like better than The Encounter.

Precious Stars In the Sky 7-0 The Encounter

Not very often does a boss theme get this badly beaten... oh well, KH does have some better boss themes. Score one for the map!

Round 1 - Battle 7

Sinister Shadows - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/21%20-%20Sinister%20Shadows.mp3)

The theme for KH2's famous 1000 Heartless challenge, as well some other event/boss battles very late in the game, all after that point, usually involve beating a group of Heartless/Nobodies, as well as a few bosses like Sark.

VS.

Battleship Bravery - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/25%20-%20Battelship%20Bravery.mp3)

What a great Gummi system KH2 had, with more organized courses and all. This be the theme of the very last Gummi course, the Assault of the Dreadnought. You know, the one where you're flying through that mothership with all those hatches and destroy the core.


For me, this is an easy one. I've always had an affinity for Sinister Shadows. EPIC theme. To be honest I just listened to Battleship Bravery and don't quite see the appeal of it but whatever.

Vim and Vigor - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/38%20-%20Vim%20and%20Vigor.mp3)

And another one of KH2's boss themes, I think the first mainstream one (as in, non-special) we get introduced to, against Shan-Yu. As well as Barbossa and a bunch of other bosses/Heartless event battles in the first half of the game.

VS.

Part of Your World - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/04%20-%20Part%20of%20Your%20World.mp3) (Japanese, but most of you have probably heard the English version before even playing this game, if you haven't just Youtube it)

"Look at this stuff, isn't it neat, wouldn't you think my collection's complete..." A classic Disney song from The Little Mermaid, featured in KH2's version of Atlantica which is just a bunch of music mini games. This being the second level.


I fear one might have an unfair advantage here, but what the heck. My vote's for Part of Your World.

ravenous19
08-21-2009, 05:28 AM
I actually don't mind most of the songs from The Little Mermaid, but Part of your World is probably the only song that really gets on my nerves; and this was even before KH2 came out.

wolfmaster913

Only five votes? Oh well, gotta play by the rules, time's up...

Vim and Vigor 3-2 Part of Your World

I suppose I overestimated Part of Your World, close battle. I guess in a way classic Disney songs have a disadvantage as well for being such. Oh well, score one for boss music!

Round 1 - Battle 9

Darkness of the Unknown - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/32%20-%20Darkness%20of%20the%20Unknown.mp3)

While we've been going through a lot of KH2 boss battle music (all coincidentally), here's our FINAL boss theme for KH2, for Xemnas. It changes a lot as it's actually a multiple part track, for each stage of the final battle, a different part of this thing loops. So, it would be a good idea to listen all the way through because if covers almost the whole Xemnas battle.

VS.

Once Upon A Time - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/38%20-%20Once%20Upon%20a%20Time.mp3)

This twinkly sequence, contrary to it's title, is used during the closure of the 100 Acre Wood arc in KH1 when the keyhole is sealed. It's also one of the classic Disney-original themes. Might seem unfair to put this against a final boss theme seeing as it's about 15 seconds long, but you never know. Some of these have power. Though, it's never used in KH2.


I guess my vote's gotta be Darkness of the Unknown.

Agent0042
08-23-2009, 07:08 AM
The first really difficult decision for me. I only have an issue with the classic Disney songs when it comes to the vocal versions-- the instrumentals can be quite original and I felt that "Once Upon a Time" was an excellent take on the Winnie the Pooh theme to end the adventures for the Hundred Acre Wood. On the other hand, Darkness of the Unknown is an excellent final boss battle theme.


Hrm... Darkness of the Unknown, though I hate to see the other exiting so early, as it's probably going to.

wolfmaster913
08-23-2009, 07:44 AM
Once Upon A Time. As much as I love Darkness of the Unknown, especially once it calms down near the end, I refuse to let Winnie the Pooh go down via knockout. That said, I feel that both deserve to go on.

Round 1 - Battle 10

Tension Rising - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/09%20-%20Tension%20Rising.mp3)

ANOTHER KH2 Boss/Event battle theme. First used for the Twilight Thorn, which is pretty much this game's Darkside. Throughout the game it's used for event battles with groups of Nobodies, usually summoned by an O13 member. Also one other time during the battle to wake up the Beast.

VS.

Friends In My Heart - KH1 & 2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/17%20-%20Friends%20in%20My%20Heart.mp3)

Finally, a theme used in both games that isn't area or battle music. A variation of Dearly Beloved, but it stands out in itself. Used mostly during emotional scenes like "I really flew" as well as childhood flashback scenes and parts where Sora has to say goodbye to someone or gets reunited with an old friend...

Difficult choice for me, but I'm gonna end up picking Tension Rising. A battle theme I actually like more in this game.

Tension Rising 4-3 Friends In My Heart

As much as it sucks for some for FIMH to be out early, Tension Rising is indeed an exceptional battle track.

Next battle should be interesting, and I swear, out of 112 tracks the randomizer did put these two together:

Round 1 - Battle 11

Under the Sea - KH1 & 2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/48%20-%20Under%20the%20Sea.mp3) (KH1 version, without words; youtube for the other)

Another classic Disney theme. Very catchy song, was used in both games in different ways. In KH1 it was the regular world theme for Atlantica when it was a world like all the others. In KH2 it's used in level 3 of the music mini-game mission, with words and all (I didn't post the BL link to it because it was in Japanese, but you may youtube it. It's not ripped directly from the Disney movie, seeing as it contains the voices of the KH trio). Part of Your World just lost, now how will this do?

VS.

Isn't It Lovely? - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/01%20-%20Isn%27t%20It%20Lovely.mp3)

...and the Atlantica theme for KH2. Pretty sure it's game-original, but it really is lovely. I mean, I'm sure people miss hearing "Under the Sea" all the time and underwater battles, but this tune is a good make-up for that.


Hard choice, and Under the Sea is one of my favorite Disney songs. But I'm gonna have to go for Isn't It Lovely, because it's truly a great piece. Under the Sea may be a classic, but it did numb the brain after a while swimming around Atlantica 1.0.

Originality does have an advantage.

Round 1 - Battle 12

Having a Wild Time - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/29%20-%20Having%20a%20Wild%20Time.mp3)

The battle theme of the Deep Jungle, a world which is not only KH1 exclusive, but surprisingly the only KH1 world not included in Chain of Memories. If anyone knows the reason for this, if there is one, feel free to enlighten me! For now I just assume it wasn't important enough for Sora to remember.

VS.

Forze Del Male - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/63%20-%20Forze%20del%20male.mp3)

This special battle theme is used during the second battle with Riku at Hollow Bastion after revisiting it, when he's possessed by Ansem right before entering the Dark Depths. It's also used in one of the first Ansem/Xehanort forms (I think the second one on the beach), but it's mostly associated with Riku. It's also utilized in Chain of Memories during all the battles with crazy bizarro Riku.

Oh and my vote. Having a Wild Time I think is my in-total favorite mainstream battle theme. A lot of it reminds of the Pokemon opening theme. Forze Del Male is cool at the beginning, but it has some potential it never gets around to.

wolfmaster913

The Deep Jungle battle theme was a match for a boss theme! That must say something... by the way, for those who say they hate the regular Deep Jungle music, or anything about it, I'll break it to you right now it's not one of the 112 tracks in this, mainly because no one nominated it. I guess that kind of makes sense. Having a Wild Time is such a contrast to it.

Round 1 - Battle 13

Sacred Moon - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/26%20-%20Sacred%20Moon.mp3)

The theme of KH2's special last world, the World That Never Was. Organization XIII's world. Ooh, scary, all that twinkling and operatic noises in the background. It lives up to it's potential once the piano and other parts join. Title refers to Kingdom Hearts which is visible in the sky like a moon.

VS.

Hand In Hand - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/32%20-%20Hand%20in%20Hand.mp3)

This must be a popular theme seeing as it has two other versions throughout the OST. This is the original, being the battle music in Traverse Town. At least, after you beat the first Guard Armor in District 3. Until then it's "Night of Fate", but after that, this is TT's battle theme for the rest of the game.

I know it'll probably lose but I really like Sacred Moon. I mean I like Hand in Hand and this is my favorite version of it, but I got a thing for the end of SM's loop.

Round 1 - Battle 14

Gearing Up - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/25%20-%20Gearing%20Up.mp3)

One of KH2's Gummi menu themes, yes there were several, I think this on the first screen you reach when opening it. Anyhow, it's a interesting tune, especially the beginning.

Another theme that originally existed in the movie before the game, as the main PotC theme. Serves in the game as the Battle music for the Port Royal world. One of the rare occasions where the Disney-original theme is used as a world's battle music and not the normal world background music.

Gonna go with He's a Pirate, here.

This time, the traditional movie theme wins, but good to see support both ways.

And we're 1/4 of the way through the first round! Haha... we've been having a lot of KH2 exclusive battles lately, time for a KH1 exclusive battle.

Round 1 - Battle 15

Always On My Mind - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/70%20-%20Always%20on%20My%20Mind.mp3)

Nice piano/string theme from the end of KH1, after the door is opened and they float away. Kind of a medley of a bunch of main songs like Dearly Beloved, Kairi, etc.

VS.

Squirming Evil - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/31%20-%20Squirming%20Evil.mp3)

One of KH1's boss themes, much like "The Encounter" is for KH2, it's mainly for Disney-character bosses, as opposed to original Heartless bosses. Such include Clayton, Hades, Jafar... and so on. Not a lot of melody, but a strong feeling of tension in the air. But as we know, melody isn't always everything, look at FFX's "Challenge".


My vote be for Squirming Evil. I hate medleys. I mean, probably my second least favorite boss theme, but gives a feeling of nostalgia.

Closer battle than I expected... but a medley of the classic themes proves to be more popular.

Round 1 - Battle 16

Riku - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%202/28%20-%20Riku.mp3)

Riku's theme... he didn't have one in KH1. Played during the scene in World That Never Was where Kairi finds him and it's revealed what happened to him.

VS.

Guardando nel Buio - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/68%20-%20Guardando%20nel%20buio.mp3)

KH1's final final boss theme, for the chain of fights in the "World of Chaos" against Ansem/Xehanort and some random heartless. Some parts of it do sound like Destati or a spiced up version of it. But it has a lot more than that.

I had to give both a listen again to determine. So, looks like it'll be Guardando nel Buio

Round 1 - Battle 17

Captain Hook's Pirate Ship - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/56%20-%20Captain%20Hook%27s%20Pirate%20Ship.mp3)

The theme for one part of Neverland, which is KH1 exclusive... the sky already won, how about this? Weird that you never get to go to the actual island (though I think in 358/2 you do). It's got a suspenseful creepy feel to it, like anyone would when sneaking around on a pirate ship.

VS.

Working Together - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/16%20-%20Working%20Together.mp3)

A battle theme that has an oddly happy feel to it, sounds more fitting for a mini-game, but it's still a battle track. It's the battle music for Twilight Town, when you're there as Sora. The Afternoon Streets (the main TT-Sora theme) already won. But as I mentioned before, oddly in CoM they decided to use the Roxas TT theme and battle themes.


Me, I've always had a soft spot for Captain Hook's Pirate Ship, especially towards the end. Though I do admit that when I first ventured into a battle in T-Town as Sora, I was like 'wtf is with this music?' haha

Revivng Hollow Bastion - KH2 (can also represent KH1's HB) - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/20%20-%20Reviving%20Hollow%20Bastion.mp3)

Ah, Hollow Bastion... Sora's long lost home.
KH2's Hollow Bastion theme, and as for what I meant about it representing KH1's Hollow Bastion, is the fact that it's simply that with some stuff added, hence why it would be pointless to use it. Regardless, I'd say it improved it anyway.

VS.

Go For It! - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/26%20-%20Go%20for%20It!.mp3)

Colosseum battles! If there's anything I miss from KH1, it's the Colosseum tournaments. The Underdrome didn't do it for me. So what did you think of their theme?

Dance of the Darling - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/31%20-%20Dance%20of%20the%20Darling.mp3)

The battle theme to the Beast's Castle, which is pretty much a faster waltz.

VS.

Merlin's Magical House - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/34%20-%20Merlin%27s%20Magical%20House.mp3)

Merlin's house theme, in KH1. Yeah, the one in Traverse Town, it got it's own separate theme.

The 13th Struggle - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/12%20-%20The%2013th%20Struggle.mp3)

This is one of the few tracks first introduced in Chain of Memories and carried over to KH2. Anyway, yeah, the battle music for most of the boss fights with members of Organization XIII, I think all of them in CoM, in KH2 it's used in a few battles, but most of them have the 13th Dilemma instead. One memorable one is... "Simply AMAZING, Roxas!"

VS.

Villains of a Sort - KH1/KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/43%20-%20Villians%20of%20a%20Sort.mp3)

Used in both games, this is the Disney villains' theme, not for battles, but for scenes when you see Malificent or one of her cronies plotting something evil.


My vote's easily for The 13th Struggle. It's my favorite battle theme in the game. Parts of it even remind me of one my favorite FF tracks, "The Extreme". Villains is eerie and stuff, but I honestly can't think of anything I'd choose it over.

09-15-2009, 12:15 AM
"Villains of a Sort" is areally good tune and I loved hearing it whenever Maleficent was showing up or about to show up.

Round 1 - Battle 21

Missing You - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/11%20-%20Missing%20You.mp3)

One of those piano themes set for saucy emotional scenes, in KH2. Usually involving a goodbye, or someone reminiscing about something, usually an old friend or the good times.

VS.

Organization XIII - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/24%20-%20Organization%20XIII.mp3)

Another piano theme, with a creepy operatic in the background, making the theme of scenes involving Organization XIII. Their battle theme just won, and there's a trace of it at the beginning of this one...

Close battle, but one must always come out on top, and this time O13 is not so lucky, as KH2's emotional reminisce theme makes it.

Round 1 - Battle 22

A Very Small Wish - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/45%20-%20A%20Very%20Small%20Wish.mp3)

The main theme for inside Monstro, where you first meet Pinocchio and Geppetto, and home to a lot of other secrets. Sounds kinda dark... and perfectly fitting for the place. Very different from its battle music.

VS.

Winnie the Pooh - KH1/2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/35%20-%20Winnie%20the%20Pooh.mp3)

So "Once Upon a Time" already bit it, now we have the regular world theme for 100 Acre Wood, which I THINK might be originally a Disney theme (correct me if I'm wrong). That place is always fun, seen in both games.

And... oh, geez, this is a really hard choice for me. Both are among my favorite tracks on about the same level, I think I'll be going with A Very Small Wish since it's game-original (the other one might be but I'm not 100% sure) and I might like it a little better.

Round 1 - Battle 23

Swim This Way - KH2 - Listen Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UfamP1s8MA) (Youtube)

The first song on KH2's Atlantica juke-box minigame. It's game-original as far as I'm concerned, and pretty catchy!

VS.

Magical Mystery - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/18%20-%20Magical%20Mystery.mp3)

The theme played in Yen-Sid's tower in Twilight Town. Very creepy and ominous... and it still keeps that theme when you revisit it later in the game!

Whee, first blowout in a while, yay for Magical Mystery! Though honestly I am surprised, didn't know the Atlantica thing wasn't popular, this is the third song from that to go down I think. But anyway, Magical Mystery truly is unique it's almost as good as Residents... haha

Round 1 - Battle 24

Lazy Afternoons - KH2 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/kh2ostsoundtrack/Disc%201/04%20-%20Lazy%20Afternoons.mp3)

The OTHER Twilight Town theme, that being the one when you're there as Roxas. Both of Sora's TT themes (main + battle) already won, it's Roxas's turn. Oddly, even though you're Sora then, this is the theme used in CoM's Twilight Town, not "The Afternoon Streets".

VS.

Shrouding Dark Cloud - KH1 - Listen Here (http://lamda.bluelaguna.net/khmusic/18%20-%20Shrouding%20Dark%20Cloud.mp3)

A KH1 Boss theme! Haven't had one of those in a while... mostly we've been seeing those from KH2, except for "Squirming Evil" which already lost. Anyway, contrary to that, this is one of the first Boss themes you hear, I think at the Guard Armor, and it's used for "Heartless" boss battles (as opposed to Disney character bosses). Mostly early ones though, like that and the Trickmaster and others.


I vote for Shrouding Dark Cloud. "Lazy Afternoons" doesn't do it for me like "Afternoon Streets" does, plus I loved most of KH1's boss themes, better than those in the second.

Finally, one of the KH1 gummi themes. This is played for second level routes, past the first warp, like those that go between Agrabah, Atlantica, Halloween Town, Monstro Neverland, etc.
It's a lot like the first, but in a different key and a bit faster.

VS.

Ursula's Revenge - KH2 - Listen Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWA_ZszX2RE&feature=related) (Youtube, English)

Yet another Atlantica track, and it's Ursula's song! It's also considered the "boss battle" with Ursula. It's quite long, actually, the song. "This is not the end my dear I swear I've just begun, it's not over until Ursula has won!"


Yeah... this time I'm with Atlantica. Ursula's Revenge.
