Because we have 32 entries, should we have a double elimination or single elimination tournament? Or a mixture of both?

Come vote! The next installment in the Nintendo Life Special VGM Tournament, Best Sky Theme, has begun! Everyone can vote!

And for the record, doing this on my iPad sucks. Just a couple more days until I'll be able to use a proper desktop.

1) Gusty Garden — This song is just so great.
2) High Above the Land — Barely won. Both are such great songs.
3) Sky Wave — Never really liked David Wise
4) Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team - Sky Tower — Just a better song. That;s all I can say

Check in for new sheets every Monday. There's lots of Fire Emblem arrangements coming.

Because everyone seemed to pick really good songs, this tournament will be double elimination. But only if everyone promises to vote every round. I think the @mentioning has been effective.

1) Super Mario Galaxy - Gusty Garden Galaxy. Clichés aside, Gusty Garden was the overall better composition on all fronts. Sky Road is a great song, but there were a few niggling factors that prevented it from winning today. The melody was fantastic, but the counter-melody killed it. The counter-melody is supposed to complement, not substitute. However, it had an awesome B section.

2) Shovel Knight - High Above the Land (The Flying Machine). This was so incredibly close. Kid Icarus: Uprising is a chair with three legs: music, cinematics, and commentary. All three perform equally to create the experience, and each section was designed to mesh with the other two. The problem with Uprising is that the music is stripped of its cinematics and commentary, essentially destroying the experience. It's a great song, but it only works in the game, unfortunately. Shovel Knight painted a better picture overall.

3) Donkey Kong Country 2 - Bramble Blast. And this one was incredibly closer. Bramble Blast won because it was a slightly better composition. Sky Wave seemed to be a bit too complex for its own good.

4) Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team - Sky Tower. Argh, are all of the songs going to be this close? Sky Tower better captured the theme overall, and had a better composition overall. Blimp Ride was a good song, but it reminds me of an amusement park.

I truly hope all of the songs are like these match ups right here. This was a good set of songs. We've either got a good tournament going, or the seed randomizer did a crappy job.

1. Sonic Lost World - Sky Road (Zone 1)
2. Shovel Knight - High Above the Land (The Flying Machine)
3. Donkey Kong Country 2 - Bramble Blast
4. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door - Blimp Ride

2. and 4. are based on me listening to both choices for each option for the first time, whereas I'm not at all interested in the Mystery Dungeon series the other 3 games I haven't played due to other reasons (Shovel Knight - not in Europe, Kid Icarus Uprising - not enough blocks to download with the current sale, Paper Mario TTYD - hard to find at a reasonable price). Bramble Blast was an easy victory, always liked it ever since I came across for the first time. Gusty Garden has decreased over time mainly due to it feeling slightly bland compared with Cloudtop Cruise (love the "thundercloud" section), Sky Road Zone 1 is still very high for me even though I've listened to it a very large number of times (the 3rd red ring is very hard to reach).
