Luigi’s Mansion – Main Theme

Let’s say you are put in the precarious situation of saving someone you love from a haunted mansion.  You are provided with the proper tools to defend yourself from spectral attackers, but the actual task of searching this creepy building must be undertaken.  How would you keep your courage up while traveling the dark and dilapidated hallways?  Would you talk to yourself?  Call out for your beloved?  Maybe you should just keep quiet, to get the drop on any would-be ghosts.

Or you could take a page from Luigi’s playbook and simply hum along to some music while exploring:

The main theme for Luigi’s Mansion is a great example of taking a very ominous track and turning it into a goofy sing-along.  Instead of relying solely on the heavy tones composed by Kazumi Totaka and Shinobu Tanaka, the song includes voice actor Charles Martinet humming the tune as a frightened Luigi, desperately trying to keep his cool while facing down ghosts.  This track matches the mood of the game perfectly- a spooky experience that still manages to be lighthearted and fun.

    This tune is one of the reasons this game was a favorite of mine on the GameCube. It’s fun, spooky, and keeps you invested throughout. I even found myself humming along from time to time. 🙂
