Music of the Week #481

Late but not late enough to be 2021

Happy Holidays to everyone and particularly Merry Christmas to those with that program. I personally don’t really celebrate Christmas in the usual sense because there hasn’t been a tree or wrapped gifts in my house for decades but the family still exchange gifts of some sort and we always treat the 25th as “the” day. Any way, I was late because I got sick early last week and couldn’t really focus.

This week’s theme is the battle theme for 95% of the all the fights in Paper Mario, a real earbugger that sticks with you evidently throughout the years. It manages to retain that atmosphere of a tense battle but still keeps itself whimsical and cutesy to its artstyle.
