The third track, "Water Music" (a.k.a. "Aquatic Ambiance") from Donkey Kong Country actually is composed by Dave Wise, not Eveline Fischer.

"Dear Scribes,
I am hoping you can provide me with the info that I'm seeking regarding Donkey Kong Country's original soundtrack. The credits list three people working on the soundtrack (Mr. Wise, Mr. Beanland, and Ms. Fischer). I was wondering if you could please list who did which song, individually. Although most of the songs have those memorable and distinct Wise-style melodies, some are leaving me scratching my head.
Yours truly,
Jean-Marc Goulet

Rare Reply: Let's see. Once he'd polished off the new DKC3 GBA score Dave found the time to dig up a full list, and it looks like this: Robin did Funky's Fugue, Eveline did Simian Segue, Candy's Love Song, Voices of the Temple, Forest Frenzy, Tree Top Rock, Northern Hemispheres and Ice Cave Chant, and the rest was the doing of Mr. Wise. Hot damn! It always makes me feel empowered when we can provide actual, genuine, non-fabricated information."

Incidentally, you can use the "Discuss this album" link at the bottom right of album pages to create threads like this (it creates an auto-titled thread in the album discussion subforum, and links back to the album page).

Also, artist link fixed!

It's great to finally know the true composer of the famous "Water Music."

Thanks again! I already downloaded the scans (OGC1 and OGC5).

Interesting... Eveline Fischer is really credited as the composer of "Aquatic Ambiance" in the booklet.

Hey, I was listening to this album today, and noticed that it's actually the opening of Hiroki Kikuta's "Meridian Child" that incorporates the beginning of John Williams' theme "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," rather than Chrono Trigger's arrangement here.

Tbh, I was surprised to hear that it was referenced in this album at all...

Ugh that's my bad, it's correct in the booklet but I put it on the wrong track in the notes. Sorry about that, and thanks for noticing!

Should track 2 be "Yoshi's Island" with an apostrophe?

スーパーマリオヨッシーアイランド ("Super Mario Yoshi Island") is the Japanese title of the game, and I think all of our tracklists for this series use the Japanese titles.
