8. Mansion Theme

Luigi’s Mansion

Boo! We can’t let Mario take all the limelight in this music countdown, can we? The music of the series belongs to Luigi just as much as his older brother. The green plumber’s first solo outing (I call it his first because we do not acknowledge the abomination that was Mario is Missing!) featured some awesome and spooktacular music. The haunting notes really make Luigi’s crawl around the mansion seem quite creepy. Luigi’s Mansion is no Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but I always found the mansion to be an incredibly interesting and atmospheric place, in large part due to the music.

Luigi plays just as big of a role in the soundtrack as the instruments as well. Humming, whistling, and groaning to himself seems to be Luigi’s way of coping with being in a haunted mansion all by himself. It’s not like he has an iPod in there with “Eye of the Tiger” and the Ghostbusters theme on it.

The arrangement of the Luigi’s Mansion theme from Super Smash Bros. Brawl is also absolutely fantastic. Organs and choirs always make anything exponentially better.
