    I have a WII since second week launch when it came out. I have a copy of both Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 that I never played but love the music. However this rendition of Fresh Prince of Bel Air + Mario Galaxy music is awesome.
    Honestly for me I would say to stick to playful music instead of music like Pendulum, heavy metal/hip hop that breaks the flow of the game. You really aren't creating nor setting an atmosphere and you're constantly losing immersion from the player.
    Like ze_NY_Marathon is an example for a map with good music that compliments it.

    Or the theme songs from Punch-out on the Wii, those are fun to listen when running since it creates a fun playful atmosphere.

    Or the Character Creation song from Star Wars The Old Republic. It's a very high epic song and it set's a mood to the player like they have to hold as if they're life depended on it.

    I'd say you should map first and then worry about the music. I tend to plan the music for my maps before finishing them usually, but not before starting/having a bit of them done. It is usually a good idea to see where 'you' are in terms of looks to find more or less fitting music.

    stay away from hardstyle and anything nightcore.

    Go for popular choices that nobody will get tired of too quickly. If people really like the map they'll want to play it multiple times.

    As envio said, finish your map, then go for something that supplements it.

    If your map has bosses, look for fitting music. The boss music should have a feeling of pressure being added to finishing the fight. If it has levels, you can just add regular choices.

        That was the most ear-rapiest I had of my life. And putting it to 1080p doesn't make it better.
