I originally just planned to make a DKC playlist, but after stumbling across a similar video by NicNac2451 decided it would be more fun to do a top 20. Click “show more” for a list of all 20 songs.

  1. Nice Video and good ranking, maybe I would choose aquatic ambience at first but it is not so important. Both of them are great masterpieces :). The playthrough though…. They are horrible gamers and it hurts to see them playing this great games :D. How can someone ruin theese games like the gamers there? 😀

  2. poderosa maquina de 16 bits con una trilogia de juegos como DK que nos trajo horas y horas de entretenimiento en nuestra niñes… que recuerdos carajo.

  3. I really like the music for the sky stages in DKC2 though those levels can also be pretty dang tough with all the spikes everywhere.

  4. I definitely agree with Stickerbrush being at the top spot… I remember even pausing the game just to listen to that track in a loop. I am now a musician/electronics engineer and I just recently revisited the DKC soundtracks and I now appreciate them from both perspectives: the masterful music composition work and how the guys from Rare got the most out of the electronic hardware limitations to output these visually and musically stunning games. Thanks a lot for compiling this list!
