Homework: pick new song suggestions

Due by Sunday (Jan 30th).
Pick 2 or 3 musics that would be fun to play for an orchestra.

We have: Violin, viola, clarinet, bass, cello, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, keyboard/piano.

Easy on the percussion.


  1. Yoshi's Island Boss Map BGM

    Cherry Blossom Color Season

    What the Forest Taught me

  2. trying to pick out simpler stuff (i think)
    blackout band: i just wanna play video games

    final fantasy 6: locke's theme

    guile's theme

    king of fighters 97: still green (shingo's theme)

    nights: take the snow train

    donkey kong country: ice cave chant

    super mario land: muda kingdom

    f-zero: silence

    airbuster/aeroblasters: seaside front

    un squadron: frontline base

    lunar: wind nocturne

    final fantasy xiii: battle theme

    final fantasy v: dragon spreads its wings

    final fantasy mystic quest: doom castle

    lufia 2: battle theme #1

    street fighter alpha: ryu's theme

    gradius III: sandstorm stage, mechanical stage, prelude of legend (arcade version)

    a-jax: stage 1

    tetris theme a (to be boring)
    raiden II: anything really
    anything from detana twinbee/twinbee yahho
    sonic the hedgehog: starlight zone or spring yard zone
    sonic the hedgehog 2: casino night zone
    sonic the hedgehog 3: endless mine, azure lake

  3. OK. All easy songs, but they are nice.

    1. Great Deku Tree's Last Words... (Legend Of Zelda, The: Ocarina Of Time).

    Reasoning: This would sound pretty cool if we had all the strings (viola, violin and cello) do the undertone, and then foppy ein and I do the two melody parts.


    2. Valley of the Wind (Xenogears).

    Reasoning: Apart from the xylophone (which foppy could synthesize on his keyboard, or we could even just not have it and it would sound ok), there is no percussion part. And there is like three woodwind parts playing the melody/harmony.


    3. Title Screen (Animal Crossing: City Folk).

    Reasoning: This is easy and nice. We could just have an instrument cover the guitar part (I dunno, sax or flute). It has a nice underlying strings part, and has a couple parts playing which we can all cover. Main thing is, it's easy.

  4. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Light Overworld

    Dark Overworld

    Hyrule Castle

    Banjo-Kazooie - Clanker's Cavern

    Street Fighter - Guile's Theme

    Super Mario World


    Katamari Damacy
    Fugue #7777

    Cherry Blossom Color Season

  5. Fire Emblem 7: Main Theme

    MOTHER: Introduction (posting this too because vgmusics midis for it are really terrible)

    Pokemon G/S/C: National Park

  6. okay my three songs will be:

    blackout band: i just wanna play video games

    guile's theme

    and just because clarinet loves the idea:
    super mario land: muda kingdom

    i really hate narrowing it down to just this much
