Quoted from Whifflebat:
Partner in Kryme's "Turtle Power" from the first movie would make good, cheese-tastic game over music.
OK, let's do this. Let me start by saying the music in the game is fantastic and the sound team did a bang-up job. No complaints. But for nostalgia's sake, if I were to tweak a few things, I'd find a place for the following jams...
1) Pizza Power (Coming Out of Their Shells Tour, Turtles in Time Theme)
Commentary: For those unfamiliar, this is the title theme from Turtles in Time. Super cheesy, but dripping with nostalgia from TMNT
's arcade heyday
Proposed location: Attract Mode
2) Ninja Rap (Vanilla Ice, TMNTII)
Commentary: Needs no introduction. Of all the jams mentioned here, this is the one Stern absolutely should have tried to license. And for what it's worth, the Ninja Pizza Multiball track is probably the weakest...
Proposed location: Ninja Pizza Multiball
3) Sewer Surfin' (Konami, Turtles in Time)
Commentary: Among the folks over at OverclockedRemix, this is widely considered one of Izumi & Nakamura's best pieces. I will say that I'm not sold on where I have it here. But it has to go in somewhere. PS: There's an a cappella version of this that is pretty good.
Proposed Location: Weapon hurry-up/April hurry-up
4) Turtle Power (Partners in Kryme, TMNT90)
Commentary: I've always associated cheesy rap with TMNT
, and it really does fit. I like Whifflebat
's suggestion as the Game Over music. Also works at character select (another "weak" track).
Proposed location: Character selection OR Game Over
5) Boss Theme (Konami, TMNT Arcade)
Commentary: Say your prayers, toitles! To me, this is Bebop & Rocksteady's theme song. Oddly enough, the track for "Window Shopping" is my favorite new jam. I would try to find a place for it in another episode.
Proposed Location: "Window Shopping"
6) Scene 1, Fire! (Konami, TMNT Arcade)
Commentary: I don't have a place for this, but it's one of the best video game Level 1 tracks out there. Perhaps there's an episode it fits well?
Proposed location: Episode?
Help me out here: what am I missing? What's the best place for each of these? Which of Stern's tracks do you LOVE? (Window Shopping for me).
