Default Need Help finding musics

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...C7046AAEC02FC2

Lately I've been trying to find all of the BGMS used on this old Japanese gameshow called takeshi's castle. I've uploaded some videos of the show. I was wondering if anyone here knows any of the BGMs alot of them sound like they were from videogames or Anime. If anyone knows a bgm and tells me I will be eternally greatfull. The only information I have is that all of the BGMS had to have come from albums that came out before 11/16/90. If anyone knows the BGM for the video labeled ricebowl downhill, I'm almost 100% sure that one comes from a videogame.

I was shocked when watching the show after so many years to find out that it used VGM. There was this test which resembled a lot like an horizontal old school platformer, which had a song from Fantasy Zone as the background music (I think it was one of the most recognizable ones, OPA-OPA), but correct me if I'm wrong.
It would be amusing to find out wether if the show did use more VGM as BGM

Yup OPA OPA was used as a BGM for the show
They also used music from
Athena
A-Jax
Son-Son
Nuts and Milk
Commando
Dragon Quest
Scramble formation
Bomberman
Butasan
Star Soldier
Sky kid
Super Mario Brothers 3
and Dragon Quests 1 and 2

I'm pretty sure Ricebowl downhill, Velcro Fly, Take it Snow and Tobboggoff come from Videogames. If they don't than they come from anime.

And I'm certain Star bowling is the underground theme from super mario brothers 1. But I'm having trouble locating Super mario brothers original soundtrack. If someone could upload that, it would be great.

Wow I had never noticed there were so many o_o. Even from better known games like DQ and Mario Bros. As for Star Bowling, the part where contestants select their position definitely sounds resemblant to the underground theme, but still quite different. My guess is that if it actually is, it must be from an arrangement album, but I haven't listened to many Mario albums so I can't tell you for sure.
Great recopilation of tests, by the way. Did I mention this is one of the best shows ever made?

Here's a page listing (some) of the BGM for the different challenges:

Unfortunately they don't know the track for Ricebowl Downhill either.

I've checked back and forth on that site many times. That's why i've been checking and asking for so many older videogame albums. I hope to find all of them some day.
