Music is perhaps one of the most underestimated aspects of the Mario Kart series.
Yeah, you’re here to play the craziest race you can imagine. But don’t forget the OST tracks, they’re so much fun with every race.
It’s easy to focus on hundreds of customizable maps, a huge cast of Mario’s universe to choose from, creatively designed trophies and courses, and much more. But on this list, I’m going to delve into the best Mario Kart music and present my top 40 selections.
The cartoon has something that combines quirky scenes and dynamic music for Mario Kart’s most epic sessions. Fans of the show know exactly what I’m talking about.
40. Colosseum Vario (double bar)
Based on the optimistic circuit typical of the Mario Kart series, Double Dash’s Wario Colosseum sums up the go-kart racing franchise in its best chaotic high-speed performance.
Exactly the same furious music you can imagine on a spiral track in a big hamster wheel, it’s certainly perfect for the track.
When it comes to determining what is a good musical theme for a piece, consistency should be the most important criterion.
This means you probably don’t want music with a slower tempo like in Maple Tree Way, because you zoom in and out all the way. Sweet music doesn’t go well when you drive like a stuntman.
Energy is the key to this subject, and it fits well with the nature of the course.
39. Mario Kart Wii Gold Mine
The other trail in Wario, the Wario Gold Mine, is an exciting level where you can ride a roller coaster through underground mines (with lots of obstacles in front of you).
That’s why you want this kind of exciting music, isn’t it? You want something that will really pump your adrenaline on your way to the square finish.
This theme certainly doesn’t disappoint, because it gives the stage a unique rustic touch with the banjo and the high tempo, it really stands out.
Perfect accompaniment for a crazy scene, this music lets you rock from one side to the other, even if you’re celebrating the 15th anniversary of the child’s birth. time in a deep crack.
38. Candy Canyon (Mario Card 8)
For such a level of sweetness, the soundtrack must capture the feeling of deep immersion in pleasure and experience the enjoyment of sweet pleasure.
It’s doing well, because it has a very cheerful musical theme that you can imagine walking down the street with freshly baked biscuits in your hand and whistling.
Encouragement should be something fun and light. And Sweet Sweet Canyon perfectly combines the sweet background and the sweet background track as if it were a wet baker’s dream.
37. Luigi’s Manor House (Mario Kart DS)
Inspired by the game of the same name, Luigi’s Mansion is a scary course that rightly differs from the classic courses in the series.
Therefore, the soundtrack should reflect the scary atmosphere and immerse you in this abnormally scary villa atmosphere.
And again, it’s a song that makes it perfect.
A slower work, the music is not only a repetition of the same rhythm as many others in the series. However, it is a very adaptive track that corresponds to the scary views you see on the screen.
Luigi’s Mansion tries something new and does impressive work, making it an unforgettable access to the scenes available on Mario Kart DS.
36. Kalimari Desert (Mario 64 card)
Here we have a very open track, a really breathtaking desert. The Kalimari Desert is essentially a standard race track with additional obstacles in the form of passing trains, which you can ride directly on your track. Circuits.
Music is just a piano piece that is incredibly contagious and lets you hum along while others eat your dust.
With its relaxed Western movie riffs, the Kalimari desert does its best to put you in a dim desert environment and let you fight for the supremacy of the Wild West.
The GBA title, Mario Kart Super Circuit, may not have been very good in terms of visuals.
But he created this swing for the classic course – Bowser Castle.
It’s hard not to feel cool when you’re bravely fighting against an evil hiding place full of Lava Bowser, malice you get out of it and many other kinds of obstacles.
Bowser’s Castle is such an iconic franchise level that it deserves a soundtrack with the right burst of fun and power. And that’s exactly what you get with the Super Arrangement.
Moreover, the soundtrack is well outdated to give a beautiful retro feel of the GBA era. Just by listening to it, you want to dust off the old Gameboy in your closet and give this title a new twist.
If you’ve sold your old GBA, fortunately you can still run the emulator and play like that.
34. Catch range (double line)
Peach Beach of the Strange and Wonderful Double Dash was one of those incredibly entertaining levels you always looked forward to.
Whether you want to overcome the problem of wandering around on the beach, not diving into the sea or being pulled out of a large green tube to get a nice view of the beach, this is an excellent route.
The music is a beautiful combination of Caribbean beach music with light drums and percussion instruments that evoke images of a piña colada. You might even have a copy of Double Dash on TV in that beach dream.
33. Mario Card Stadium (Mario Card 8)
Mario Kart Stadium is a pretty spectacular racing circuit where you can fight for first place in a big stadium with a huge crowd.
The BGM soundtrack reflects this big band feeling. It really gives you the feeling that all eyes are on you to push you to the finish line.
Mario Kart Stadium is a racetrack where you’ll feel much more triumphant. Mario Kart Stadium does a great job of creating atmosphere, and the result is a great choice to race with your friends to see who will make it to the top.
32. Rocky Mountain (Mario Map 7)
In a game that introduced sliding, Rock Mountain is the perfect demonstration of a new game of mechanics.
As you glide through the woods and jump off the mountains, Rock Rock Mountain combines with a guitar soundtrack that makes you feel like you’re floating in the air.
The music that accompanies Rock Rock Mountain is the best compliment to the gameplay, as it accompanies you with wildly high rocks that accompany you literally high up in the game. I don’t see any other solution.
31. Cape Coop (Mario Kart Wii)
Now it’s a crazy, creative melody that follows the same crazy path.
Cape Coop is one of those circuits that complement the circuit so well that you’ll probably never want to hear it outside the race.
The game has several soundtracks that sound great and give you the feeling that no other music is suitable. And Coop Cape is probably one of those leads.
Supplemented with sound fragments from Koopa, this soundtrack can be heard everywhere and moves almost as much as you move during the race.
But it is also the best quality of this song and what I think makes it so unforgettable.
30. Bandstraße (Mario card 8)
Just like in Toy Story, Ribbon Road allows you to drive on a miniature track in a (large) children’s room.
It also comes with an interesting soundtrack that will certainly keep you busy. This song is superior in sound and proves that less is more.
Because this is a fairly minimalist theme for the course, the music allows you to immerse yourself in the creative landscape around you and doesn’t distract you from the feelings associated with something too crazy.
The Ribbon Road shows a good balance between purity and madness and lets the track enter the conversation by gently flowing into the background.
29. Chocolate Island (Super Mario Card)
From time to time it’s fun to return to the wonderful world of Super Mario Kart, the game that launched the entire franchise, and enjoy the original levels and retro soundtracks. Especially if you played this game in the 90s when it first appeared on the SNES.
The clear style of this piece is enchanting and almost soothing in a way that cannot be compared to contemporary music.
Just as your father was able to cook on his slot in the ’90s, this job contributes to the good times on Choco Island. Or in the bad times, when we absolutely hated this level.
28. Maple Path (Mario Kart Wii)
The sound here is much cooler to complement the relaxing valley landscape of the Maple Highway.
But sometimes energy-efficient vibrations are very pleasant to relieve tension. However, this song won’t put you to sleep, because it’s catchy and rhythmic enough to get you in the right mood to crash the race.
A refreshing step away from the madman, almost chaotic in nature, Maple Treeway is a breeze that gently blows through the leaves, which are charted along the way in an incredibly soothing way.
27. Summer crossing animals (Mario Card 8)
The summer season of Animal Crossing in Mario Kart 8 is a wonderfully light and cheerful song. It connects two megahits from the Nintendo Library (and makes it perfect).
This song in the background will make your race more entertaining than disappointing.
Sometimes it’s hard for us not to let our frustration get the best of us when we go through one failure after another and end up on that damn banana peel again.
However, this course balances the negative points and puts you in a quieter state so you can reorient yourself and cross the finish line. Even though you were shot in the blue and lost first place in a millisecond. Don’t worry, it’s summer.
26. Place Delfino (Mario Kart DS)
Walking through the narrow streets of this characteristic European-style square, you will enjoy a small retro theme that captures the spirit of a joyful stroll through the romantic city.
It’s a song that will definitely be on the playlist of a tour of real European cities in the summer.
And I must say that this Polish theme title for DS Music sounds very good!
25. Final loans (Mario 64 card)
The only end titles on the list are those that are remarkable enough to deserve a place among the best musical themes because of their iconic character.
The music at the end of Mario Kart 64 represents the highs and lows of the tournament and gives you a sense of excitement and relief as you achieve something spectacular.
The end of the Mario Kart credits is a very triumphant and comforting title, which captures what most other titles can not – a sense of resolution at the end of all this madness.
24. DK Snowboard Cross (Mario Kart Wii)
Like an icy adventure, the DK Snowboard Cross soundtrack begins as a live drum and bass track and then turns into puppet music as usual.
It’s a very interesting title, far enough from the usual music style to be worth mentioning, but different enough to be memorable among all the other songs.
It is a pleasant listening experience that fits in well with the surroundings when hunting on the snowy mountains.
23. Neo-Bowser City (Mario Card 7)
An atmospheric soundtrack that takes you into the futuristic world of Neo Bowser City. This soundtrack has a special meaning for music and is also a really fascinating piece to explore the urban environment.
When the choir starts, you can’t help but be enthusiastic. It’s incredibly memorable and you’ll recognise it the first time you hear it in Mario Kart 7.
22. Sorbet land (double bar)
An incredibly complex ice cream stand that we all hate in Double Dash.
With this trick you can go wild more often than you’d like, but at least the background music of Sherbet Land is useful enough.
The music is almost deceptive, because it betrays the crazy character of the course with its cheerful and singing mix of classic Mario Kart rhythms. I suspect more and more that Nintendo’s developers are laughing at us…
This song is really catchy, and you can even play it in the background while working on your computer.
21. Doughnut Levels (Super Mario Card)
Donut Plains from the classic Super Mario Kart sounds like the best elevator music you’ve ever heard, combining easy listening with an unforgettable SNES rhythm that you’ll absorb like butter on bread.
If you like the music styles of the SNES, you have the chance to ride Donut Plains and hum every step of the way.
Another misleading song, Donut Plains does his best to mislead you, believing that given the optimistic melody of this song, everything will be a piece of cake.
20. Rosalina’s Ice World (Mario Card 7)
Another treacherous winter world (such as Sherbet Land, no. 22), the Rosalina Ice World, is a rather icy adventure.
In exchange, you probably want to let him go and do your best not to get stuck in your paws.
Okay, no pun intended, the background music for this level is both strange and beautiful. It perfectly sums up the search through a terrifying world of ice.
19. Swivels (Mario Card 64)
Clearly in the running for the most disappointing level in the Mario Kart series, you’d think Toad’s Turnpike would come up with an equally annoying soundtrack.
However, the background music is very cold and in a way very modern. The almost techno-melody makes you wonder if you should take this exciting craze-course.
It is another track that can be put in the background while working.
18. Farm of Mu (Mario Card 64)
As a contender for one of the most memorable and entertaining franchise songs, Mu Mu Farm has one of the best themed songs if you like N64 music.
It’s almost impossible not to like this song the first time you hear it. It fits perfectly with the theme of the level and makes you want to get up and join the dance line.
Of course it can get a little crispy after a while, but trust me: On the plain, this song is golden.
17. Daisy Hill (Mario Card 7)
Inspired by the Swiss style of the city, hidden in the mountains with snowy peaks, this picturesque field is sure to impress.
Daisy Hills has the kind of music that can brighten someone’s day. That’s what you expect from an idyllic classroom.
Now, the class may not be your favorite, but I think we can agree that this background music piece fits very well.
16. Type Shy Falls (Mario Card 8)
The impressive entrance of Mario Kart 8, Shy Guy Falls, is an adrenaline rush through wild landscapes. It is also beautifully complemented by the forest and the soothing sounds of this background music.
This is the kind of music you expect from a fun Hobbit adventure in the Shire. I’m glad to hear you’re playing MK8 again.
15. Dry bone dunes (Mario Card 8)
One of my favourites, Bone Dry Dunes by Mario Kart 8, has a really atmospheric soundtrack that takes you to the desert – perhaps more than the background music of the Kalimari desert (number 36).
Exactly the amount of exotic and unusual music that takes you to the dry desert landscape, the music of Bone Dry Dunes is sure to catch on. Congratulations to the composers at Nintendo.
14. Desert Hill (Mario Card DS)
If Bone Dry Dunes can win the prize by capturing the vibrations of the desert at its best, then this background piece has a typical Egyptian scent that makes you feel like you’re Indiana Jones on a treasure hunt in a distant land.
A funny tune for your desert excursions that sets the stage for an exotic sense of adventure. Sithar instruments are also rarely heard in playing music.
13. Music Park (Mario Card 7)
For obvious reasons I wouldn’t mention BGM at Music Park in this list.
The music that accompanies this melodic scene is as impressive as you can imagine, with some crazy techno beats in the background. There’s a surprisingly cheerful but contagious rhythm in the whole action here.
If you like or hate this level, you have to give it up in favor of the music.
12. Flipper Valuigi (Mario Card DS)
The Waluigi Pinball soundtrack, a funky mix of one of the classics in the series, is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best, music of Mario Kart DS.
A slightly bumpy path should make you feel like you’re really trapped in a chaotic environment in a pinball machine.
It’s funny how music can easily capture the true feeling of such a level of play.
11. Children’s playground (double line)
Here’s a piece of background music that looks crazy. And it’s perfect for a crazy scene.
The Baby Park for Double Dash will let you enjoy the energy level of the classroom and the music.
The real combination that came into being in Nintendo Heaven, the music here is so simple but incredibly memorable. That’s all it takes for such a short distance full of attractive attractions.
10. Destroyer (Mario Card 8)
A series of traps and obstacles that can certainly make you deviate from your course. The ruins of Thwomp are as dangerous as one might expect from a name.
This Indiana Jones-like scene is accompanied by a masterfully composed work that captures the tension of thinking about whether a rock that is looting will crush you.
It’s also very difficult to describe because this music isn’t very similar to the other music by Mario Kart OST. So I think it’s only because of its uniqueness that it deserves a place on this list.
9. Cruise in the Clouds (Mario Card 8)
With a background title that makes you feel high in the sky above the clouds, Cloudtop Cruise is a cheerful hit that brilliantly integrates into the gameplay.
Perfect music for daring adventures at high altitude. The music in this room will delight your ears and give you the feeling that you are floating in the air in a surreal environment.
The heavy guitar riffs that accompany the stormy part of the course create an atmosphere and give a carnation-like feeling.
8. The Silent City (Mario Card 8)
It’s a very futuristic step in one of the last iterations of Mario Kart. Mute City is a showcase to show how far the series has come, both visually, of course, and in terms of gameplay.
To show off this incredibly energetic track, which you can turn around, slide along the walls and perform visually stunning tricks, there’s an equally energetic background music track.
And I can be several of them and feel that this song can easily be released as an independent song. Music for Mute City is a big hit, and you can’t resist rocking on the track.
As challenging as the track itself, the music takes you on an epic journey where you are the protagonist in search of adrenaline.
7. Lake Vanilla (Super Mario card)
Super Mario Kart’s Vanilla Lake is a nostalgic and inspiring song that proves that classics can compete with contemporary game music and offers a complete listening experience.
Even though the songs are minimalistic for the game it all started with, the Vanilla Lake soundtrack is not that complicated. So if you’re used to PS4 music, you might not like it here.
But the melody is so funny and incredibly catchy. You really want to dust off an old Super Nintendo or even take a SNES Mini to play this game.
6. Coconut Shop (Mario Kart Wii)
One of the funniest songs in the whole series – the song Coconut Mall – is exactly what you want to hear.
This racecourse reminds you of the fascinating guided tours of the shopping centre when you were a child and the countless possibilities it offers.
The wild and varied music beautifully reflects the diversity and complexity of this amazing scene.
5. Rainbow street (Mario map 64)
This is no longer the first time the Rainbow Route appears in this list, so here’s a fair warning.
But the 64 version of Mario Kart is – excellent number , which accompanies the mystery and joy of the final course.
It’s hard not to enjoy this circuit, which makes the final stretch of the race full of justice and offers a perfect start time for your last race.
4. Electrical Dream (Mario Card 8)
Here we have a funky soundtrack with a funky racetrack.
In fact, I’m just gonna say this: The electrode in Mario Kart 8 is a certified rock.
This music, which captures the atmosphere of the party, can certainly be characterized by the addition of pure vocals, i.e. the quality as an entertaining electronic dance floor. Maybe we should send this to some R&B musicians and see what they can do.
3. Big Blue (Mario Card 8)
Shocking rock soundtrack, like in Mute City (number 8), but with a sexy saxophone.
The futuristic Big Blue is all you need to recharge your batteries and enjoy the adrenaline.
Compared to DragonForce’s Through The Fire And Flames, Big Blue’s background music is a fast and furious rock theme with all the creations of Mario Kart’s awesome music.
2. Chain theme (double line)
Singing on countless memories and on several large racecourses you can almost hear the sound of a question mark spinning in the background like a slot machine when you throw that banana peel on the asphalt.
Without a doubt it is a true classic of Mario Kart music, a schematic theme from Double Dash, a piece that summarizes the rapid movement of the series.
In many ways this is a traditional racial theme. It fits so well without going too far into a thematic sensation. You sound like Mario Card!
1. Rainbow street (double line)
He’s at the top of the list and is rightly the only candidate for the best song of all Mario Kart: Rainbow Street.
But what sets the Double Dash version apart from the others is the highly contagious sound with better sound quality.
Rainbow Road is a charming, independent piece of music which, although it has certainly caused a lot of excitement, has managed to retain its special quality thanks to this musical masterpiece.
