A 3-hour playlist of relaxing SNES soundtracks

Donkey Kong Country, "Aquatic Ambience"

Everything from Chrono Trigger to Donkey Kong Country features on this 3-hour SNES music YouTube playlist.

ASMR didn’t exist in the 90s but new age music did. It’s a genre that gets a bad rep but if Enya made video game soundtracks, maybe they’d sound like some of these tracks.

For all its technological advances, the SNES’s music is seriously underrated. Video game YouTuber SNES drunk compiled a playlist of “relaxing Super Nintendo Music” and it’s 3 hours of bliss.

The usual suspects are there: Donkey Kong Country’s Aquatic Ambience and Chrono Trigger’s Secret of the Forest. But the opener comes from Waterworld, which is probably the highest accolade for any form of media named Waterworld. And of course, Mario features (twice).

Stream the playlist below and check out the tracklist at the bottom.
