JFo Posted October 30, 2004 Report Share Posted October 30, 2004 This talk of a survey Nintendo has on its website concerning Donkey Konga got me to thinking about the possibilities of a sequel. Specifically, I started thinking about the songs I'd like to see, which in turn lead me to wonder what sort of music you guys would like. So, here's the deal. Let's pretend Nintendo called you up and asked you to pick two songs, and only two songs, for Donkey Konga 2. One of the songs has to be a mainstream song, preferably something that was a big hit that people will recognize when they hear it. The second song must be a tune from a classic Nintendo game. If this scenario arose, what would your choices be? Also, please be sure to post the reasons for your selections. After all, we gotta know what's going through your head when you make your choices. I'll get things going with my own selections. MY MAINSTREAM POP SONG "The River of Dreams" by Billy Joel I'm a huge Billy Joel fan, and this is one of my favorite songs of his. I think part of the reason why I chose it was that it had an interesting beat, particularly at the beginning where the strong percussion plays a prominent role. I was listening to this tune earlier tonight, trying to imagine where the claps would be, when you'd hit both bongos at once, and when you'd do the drum rolls. Overall, it just struck me as a really fun song to use for a game like this. MY CLASSIC NINTENDO SONG "Magmoor Caverns Theme" by Kenji Yamamoto (from Metroid Prime) When I play this game and get to this level, I'll sometimes prolong my journey a tad just so that I can enjoy hearing the music that plays over it. It's one of those tunes that can get in my head and stick with me all day long. In short, I love this piece of music and believe the steady, march-like rhythm would work well with the congas.
