Need an Expression Text? Ask here!

Expression Text - This a word or piece of text located near the top of the page usually beside the BPM which describes the mood, tempo, or style of the song.

If you need an Expression Text or help choosing one, post a YouTube link or MP3 here and someone will help you.
Here is a resource I often use when choosing an Expression Text.

Detached sounds more like a playing instruction to lean towards staccato phrasing (which is probably what this piece could use, but doesn't set the mood necessarily). Maybe "aloof and detached"? This song always struck me as a "don't give a hoot" sort of mood, like Mario's wearing shades at night.

Yeah that's what I was trying to get at :3

Right now MLF has "Menacingly" down, but I think it sounds more playful than that.

Either my translation is terribly off, or MLF is just really bad at finding the right expression text :D

I give the Bespin seal of approval to Xaoz's critique (^o^)=b
