Kirby 64 - "Above the Clouds"

K64 had a lot of great music, but this remix of "Butter Building" might be my favorite of them all.

Persona 5 - "What's Going On"

This is such a nice and chilled out beat, any time it comes up in-game I can feel myself start to bob my head a bit. I think most people probably like this song, but when you have things like "Last Surprise" and "Life Will Change" to compete with it's easy to be forgotten.

I never knew for sure if I was the only person in the world who played Tatsunoko vs. Capcom on the Wii but I always liked this song: Washinkyo, Amehon

8. Mario RPG - Bowser's Keep (Second Time)

I think this song gets forgotten a lot because it sounds very similar to the first time you're there, which itself is just a remix of Bowser's Castle music from previous Mario games. However, the new B section introduced around 0:23 is really freaking cool.
Fun fact (a little late on this one...), the part that starts at 0:23 is actually a slowed down version of Bowser's theme from SMB3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZFUJ_jfxqU

Not sure if this one counts as overshadowed or not because I rarely hear people talk about this game at all, but this is my favorite battle theme from Valkyrie Chronicles (aka the soundtrack that wants to be Final Fantasy Tactics): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyyglk6FU-I

^ Mitsuda is why I have that game on my "someday I'll check it out" list at all. How's the game itself?
Eh. Around average. Massive balance issues.

Now here is one
granted we heard this in Shining force too, but this is where it initially came from.
