@UGXwolf
It is a reference to carmina burana , a very famous piece of classical music. You have probably heard O fortuna, a song in it. I would recommend listening to it.

Anyone else having difficulty voting? A lot of these aren't my kind of music, so I guess that makes it hard to decide. Anyway I'm thinking I'll pass on this round too.

Shulk! HOORAY! Now if they just add King K. Rool, the game will be complete.

Been keeping count because of boredom, but the current standings are as follows:

1) 5-3 (in favor of Bayonetta - The Greatest Jubilee)
2) 6-2 (in favor of Super Meat Boy - Carmeaty Burana)
3) 4-4
4) 4-4

Just in case anyone was curious, but too lazy or not curious enough to count for themselves.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.

1) Guitar Hero III - The Devil Went Down to Georgia — While I can't say I'm not biased, I CAN say that this song really does get my blood pumping and prepare me for the insane licks I'm about to have to pull off. As I said when nominating this piece, I think it works well as a boss theme in and of itself, but add in the fact that it essentially IS the boss, as well and you've got an amazing piece that will never really leave my head. The Ganondorf battle from Twilight Princess, hilariously enough, is an extremely good candidate for ALL OF THE OPPOSITE REASONS. By this, I mean that my vote could go either way, but I would really rather see GH move on. It's a more unique track, seeing as I expect the finals to be full of epic choir themes of desperation. It'd be nice to see something a little different in the later rounds.

2) Final Fantasy VIII - The Extreme — LOOK AT ME! I'M BEING CONFLICTUAL AND DISAGREEABLE! But no, in all seriousness, there's no doubting that between these two, Okami - Rising Sun is the more stunning and aurally pleasing piece, but it also doesn't make me think much of a battle--or if it does, it makes me think of the resolution of an anime battle. It sounds like the fight is either over, already, or about to be, which doesn't make me think much of a final boss. The Extreme, on the other hand, definitely feels like a struggle, even if it's a little slow to get off the ground. That said, the triumphant feel of Rising Sun is really what that piece is all about. It's a good thing to have, but when that encompasses the whole piece, it seems better fit for a resolution than a climax.

3) Dust: An Elysian Tale - Let's End This — These are both good picks, vibing throughout with that epic feel. The difference between the two is that one is more interesting to listen to on its own, and the other is more of a classical masterpiece, in a sense. I chose Let's End This because of the elements found within. There's clear notes and passages marking triumph and desperation, mixing together beautifully between each other. The piece is absolutely amazing while Jet Grind Radio tries to make itself sound hip while still giving it that epic feel, but it just kinda comes off as schizophrenic, when the beat drops. Again, neither of these are bad pieces, but I just think Let's End This is more deserving of a place in the next round.

4) Donkey Kong Country - Gang-Plank Galleon — Ok, I've gotta come clean with this one. Donkey Kong Country WAS my childhood, right next to Yoshi's Island. These were the first games that I /really/ got into, and as such, a lot of my expectations in the realms of VGM and difficulty come from those SNES classics. Heck, I think this game was literally my very first rager. THAT SAID! What I really like about this song, aside from the nostalgic value, is the instrumentation and the way they utilized the very limited sound chips they had to work with, as compared to Final Fantasy which always just sounds like it'd sound better, if we didn't have better sound technology, now. Beyond that, the build up is perfect to sync up with your realization that this is the final boss and it WON'T be so easy. It doesn't start off in battle mode, but it gets there just soon enough to really resonate with the player.

1) Guitar Hero III - The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Idk, I just didn't really get any feeling from Dark Lord Ganondorf; compared to some of the other stuff I've heard that one's pretty lame, imo. The composition is definitely there, I just felt like they were holding back the energy too much.
2) Okami - Rising Sun - Sorry Final Fantasy, you just don't cut it. Perhaps I would like the music more if I actually played any of the games. I still find it shocking that I haven't played any games in the main series despite being such a big RPG fan. (Bravely Default is on point though :D)
3) Dust: An Elysian Tale - Let's End This - Jet Grind Radio definitely has an interesting take on the final boss theme, but it falls off in that it doesn't have the drive that I felt Dust has.
4) Final Fantasy IV - Zeromus - If it was the brawl version of Gang-Plank Galleon I would have voted for it, but the original doesn't keep up a good tension, and I really can't justify voting for it.

@UGXwolf I enjoying reading your explanations, in case you're wondering who actually reads them.

@UGXWolf You've apparently never played Okami, and that's fine. I'm not expecting you to, and I'm pretty sure I haven't even played half of the games here. It's just that people who played Okami have an understanding of the context of the music. I knew going into this by nominating Okami that it's going to be tough for the music to compete if people are unaware of the context.

The music plays in the final phase of the fight, and it can quite difficult only because I'm trying to fight back tears. (Don't make fun of me, you cried too!)
