It's very corny, and most people don't digest corn, but you know what? Corn tastes good to me!

Gotta be this - Seller Of Fine Goods.  :P

I could hear this as a remix for raves. It seems plausible.

NOT INCLUDING ANY TRACK FROM THE LORDS OF SHADOW GAMES

Thanks a lot for the clarification, dood, serioulsy :).

In terms of stage themes, I found Nightmare from CVIII to be very monotonous.

It was just as bad in CotM.

To me, far from monotonous or bad, I find Nightmare to be very creepy.

As for a worst, well is very difficult to me to mention one, to be sure, but if I have to mention one, I vote for Tragedy´s Pulse, from Order of Ecclesia, principally the very beggining.

I am not a fan of the Vampire Killer remix in Castlevania Chronicles, but the real offender in that game was the remix of Wicked Child. It is, quite frankly, the worst remix I've ever heard of that particular song. The original is one of my all time favorites.

Other than that I am liking most of the music in these games, but I can't stand "Invitation of a Crazed Moon" from Portrait of Ruin. I think it has more to do with the arrangment than the actual melody though. It almost has an awful funky 70's vibe to it, especially in the beginning. Can't put my finger on it but it completely ruins it for me.

:o Oh. My. Goodness.  CVCs Wicked Child sounds terrible!!  I'm okay with its version of Vampire Killer, but Wicked Child is horrendous!
It's kinda funny though that they both sound like disco themes or something.  They make me picture that Bug Disco place in Jet Force Gemini!  I imagine a bunch of people standing and dancing around to these tunes in a setting like that.

Its not bad, but this music and room are really unexpected and a bit out of place, even so it is hilarious

Super Nintendo - Castlevania 4 - Secret Room

I could totally see this theme being used for a merchant or something like that.

What about the song from the Chapel's confessional in SOTN where you meet the priest..
That song is just not liked by me in the sense that it's creepy and you know there's a chance you'll be shanked.

The action/color of the priest would tell you if he's gonna stab you or drop wine.

I had to look up the "Confessional Theme"...I think my copy sometimes continues to play the chapel theme, or sometimes plays silence...must be messed up. :-/

The HOD merchant theme has already been mentioned. Off the top of my head, that's easily the worst CV track.

HOD overall had incredible music. I think people allow the junky quality to get in the way of the great compositions. Give it some better quality sounds and it might be the best soundtrack of the GBA and DS games.

Besides, I like those low-quality sounds. And Yamane's few contributions to the soundtrack, it should be mentioned, sound absolutely clowny.

Oh yeah, and also:

I think you're right.  With some better quality sounds, I think it'd be more popular.

I always found CV4's soundtrack to be a real weird mix of excellent production with awful compositions. I think this is one of the less fortunate results of that:

And even as much as the tune annoys me, there's a tone and memories attached to it, and I do really like the modest string bass going on in the background.

In my opinion, one of my least favorites has to be passpied.  It just came out of nowhere in the game and for a final level theme, it just lacks. Strange how throughout most of the game the soundtrack is awesome.

You don't hate on that one song from SCIV that sounds sort of like a Streets of Rage BGM.

You just don't do that.
