1) Super Mario 64 - Cool, Cool Mountain (I'm sorry, this one just isn't even a contest. I already thought DQM shouldn't have passed, but this song has been blazing through all of its opponents, for me. The use of the French Horn in the chorus is absolutely chilling, too, bringing thoughts of a snowy mountain. It's just too perfect.)
2) Kirby's Epic Yarn - Snowy Fields (Also not even close. I feel like this finale is inevitable. And as it seems that way, let it be! This shall be fun~)

Yeah, I really liked this idea, when I saw it. I even went so far as to set this up on another forum to see what happens somewhere that not everyone is gonna suggest a Mario or Zelda theme. X3 Got a shocking number of JRPGs, instead. Shoulda figured.

@Rosalina
Sure thing, I'm always glad to see new people interested. Basically we start a tournament by selecting a category or theme, like Best Winter Theme. People then choose their favorite songs that fit that theme and we put them all into a bracket. If you look back on the last page, (post 500 I believe), you'll see I have links to some songs. All you have to do is listen to them and decide which ones you like best then leave your vote in the thread. After the round is over the votes are tallied up and the winning songs move on to the next round.

I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have and I hope you stick around!

I will have to wait until I get home to be 100%, but dat French Horn on Cool, Cool Mountain is so chilling, I may as well throw up a place holder vote, and change it, if I change my mind.

Cool Cool Mountain takes this easily...and who am I kidding, it's all nostalgia. Personally, I think something like Phendrana Drifts & Freezeezy Peak should have been the top two.

I agree. Having never played the game I was pleasantly surprised to hear how good this tune is. I would hope that more people listen to it all the way through (not least of all because this is the final round), and supress their nostalgia. We have enough Mario games winning these things anyway.

Nonetheless, it has been a fun tournament, and I'm looking forward to starting a new one. >:3

I listened to both all the way through, and I'm just more impressed by the instrumentation (and use of it) in Cool Cool Mountain. They're both very good, but I just feel Cool Cool Mountain is better.
