Don't expect me to not give my honest opinion on how awful I think all of the remaining songs are for the category. If you don't want to hear it, either don't read my post or just look at the bolded text.

@UGXwolf So Toad's Factory and Daisy Circuit both sound like elevator music to you?
That's a bit of an overstatement to me... well, both of them are a bit mediocre to me.
They're not that bad, but it's what we're voting on.
By the way, are you voting on songs based on how good it would be while racing, or just on how much you enjoy it in general?

@Rosalina Yes, I'm being a bit harsh on them by equating them to elevator music. I'm talking more about the style, and in this case, it's both, as a good racing theme, to me, is something I would personally enjoy listening to that gets my blood pumping. Arguably, being that this is a kart racer and not a racing sim, we can drop the intensity quite a bit, but I just feel that most of what's left doesn't suit the implied criteria very well compared to a lot of what has been removed, already. (I also have never been able to stand the instrumentation or composition of Rainbow Road from SMK, but that's another story.) Chalk it up to "video game music is kinda my thing, so of course I'm quite picky about it." It's one of very few things I'm anywhere near this picky about.

@UGXwolf The way I vote for it is mostly dependent on how well the music fits the track, and the feeling / atmosphere it creates.
Personally, I love Daisy Circuit because it's one of the tracks that has a music theme that best matches its racing atmosphere. A closed, tight-cornered seaside resort at sunset, with seagulls about in the air, and onlookers from the buildings. etc (I could describe more, but I'm pretty lazy). It reminds me a bit of Venice, Italy.

Overall, the track design's art direction has some impact on the music I'm racing to.

Also, I agree with you on SMK's Rainbow Road instrumentation. It was a bit better to bare listening to in Super Circuit.

@UGXwolf I understand you have your opinions. We all have our preferences. However, belittling our preferences is not the way to go. Lines like "the song that I've been complaining grates on my ears since the beginning of the tournament but has somehow managed to avoid ticking anybody else off due to nostalgia" I find to be a little rude. Respect my opinion and I will do the same.

It had to come down to these two! 😖 I'll go with the one with better instrumentation. (Is that what it's called? I mean that this one sounds less ear-bleedy.)

@Rosalina @Brewsky Fair enough.

If you have you own criteria, that's just the way you vote (and clearly, I shouldn't mind this because naturally my own criteria is my own made up criteria.) I will still rag on songs I feel don't belong, though. It's just kinda the way I go about this sort of thing. For the record, aside from Rainbow Road (SNES), I don't actually dislike any of these songs. I just get really picky, when we start getting competitive with them.
