Super Mario Bros 2 Meets Metal (Overworld Theme)
While Super Mario Bros. 2 may not be the best entry in the series, the main theme is as catchy as any other in franchise history.
"This was the hardest one to recreate so far, haha," Calderone said. "It's a swing tune and once the swing sets its place, an abruption loses the bounce. Basically, there's not a whole lot of lead fills because I didn't want to lose the feel. A bittersweet tune as well. It's one of my favorite Mario tunes from one of my least favorite Mario games. However, in my mind, they made up for it in Mario 3."
