But I can't stress enough awesome this game's music is:

Diddy's Jet Pack (a perfect bastard of the jungle japes theme and Grant's metal past): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uakPJhG9kYU

Creepy Castle (a whole song based on the ): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y30r88k5M0A

Jungle Japes (if you know and appreciate Grant's style, you simply cannot dislike this Kirkhopified DKC classic): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W928muwER5E

Mad Jack (probably the creepiest Rare track by him, even more dramatic in this remake): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7w-KYXNnIE

Fungi Forest (in this case, probably Grant's magical tune. That is a perfect companion to this track): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mafPZBnkDVE

Crystal Caves (same goes to this one as well!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhJsbHTE-d8

... oh well, I went quite offtopic with this one. Isn't there a DK64 appreciation thread somewhere? Anyways, THAT'S something I seriously loved about this game. :mrgreen:

^ Thx for the links, ah.

This game was just painful to go back and play on Wii U VC. Wish I hadn't -tainted my nice memories. BK/BT held up so well; but DK64's problems are much deeper than overkill on collectibles.
I still love the games cheesy humor, music, and atmosphere there. It's unmistakably Rare. Multiplayer is still fun for me, also!

I managed to complete Donkey Kong 64 101% in 6 days the last time I played it.
How I spent my holidays. :D

I prefer DK64 collectables than Banjo Kazooie.
