9: The Vengeful Ghost of Super Mario

Yes, the Mario games have often been relentlessly cheerful, but sometimes Nintendo allows the mustachioed one and his pals to tread into darker territory. And the music that accompanies these ventures into what I call "creepy Mario" is often some of the best in the game. Featured in this episode: the most Halloween-appropriate music from Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Galaxy, Paper Mario, Super Mario RPG and more.

And if you’re an especially big Halloweener, you can listen to other Halloween episodes here.
