My VG Music Picks #66 – Tomorrow Hill/Falling Off Tomorrow Hill (WarioWare: Smooth Moves)

There is a surprising amount of vocal tracks in the WarioWare series. I dunno, I just find that strange; I never would have pegged a series like this to get that kind of content. But, these lyrical pieces are not only quite fitting but are easily some of the most popular and memorable music tracks from the series (probably because they last more than five seconds).

And while there’s a certain little witch whose theme song reigns supreme above the rest, I want to shift the focus to another one for the time being – specifically Tomorrow Hill from the Wii title, Smooth Moves.

Honestly, I don’t feel like there’s much to write about though. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s just so upbeat and joyful and… happy. A perfect ft for a sunny day when you’re out for a walk and life feels grand. It has this weird sense of nostalgia; it makes you think of the days where you had no problems to worry about. You know those cheesy, old commercials that show people on road trips having the absolute time of their lives? This is the song for that. I think I replayed Dribble and Spitz’s stage in Smooth Moves just to hear this song.

But you want to know something real special about this track? If you fail a microgame during the stage, the music distorts and the singing goes off-key, essentially punishing you for failing by ruining the song. What a great and humourous detail. Give the Falling Off Tomorrow Hill version a listen and enjoy/cringe.
