An Appropriate Portrayal, Don't You Think?

Sometimes water levels are worth the trouble

I feel like games in the Mario franchise aren't really awarded for their music as much as they should be. The Mario series has some really great music, but only do very few pieces get recognized, usually to end up being forgotten.
