After going through a Street Fighter binge, and listening to its music I feel that they could have added more songs from that series to Smash. But why stop there? There area lot of songs from other series that could have worked in Smash. So what songs would you have liked to be in Smash?

Here's my list:

Street Fighter Alpha - Charlie's Theme
Street Fighter Alpha - Dan's Theme
Street Fighter III - Alex and Ken's Theme
Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire - Battle! (Vs. The Three Golems)
Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen - Battle! (Vs Deoxys)
Pokémon Emerald - Battle! (Vs. Frontier Brain)
Mario Kart 64 - Rainbow Road
EarthBound Beginnings - New Age Retro Hippie Battle
Baten Kaitos - The True Mirror
Baten Kaitos - The True Mirror (Electric Version)
Baten Kaitos Origins - The Valedictorian Elegy (Electric Version)
Final Fantasy - Chaos Shrine
Final Fantasy III - Battle Theme
Final Fantasy IV - Battle with the Four Fiends
Final Fantasy V - Battle at the Big Bridge
Final Fantasy VI - Dancing Mad
Final Fantasy VIII - The Man with the Machine Gun
Final Fantasy IX - Not Alone
Final Fantasy X - Otherworld
Mega Man - Kaze yo Tsutaete
Undertale - Death by Glamour
Strider - Level 1

I forgot to mention this one:

EarthBound 64 - Trailer Theme

Yes, I know that the game was never released (technically), but the song is still in the soundtrack of the final game.

I want to them to add more FF music both from VII and other installments (lol at that though). I definitely agree with your pick of Man with the Machine Gun from VIII and Not Alone from IX, other tracks from the series I'd go for are:
Maybe I'm a Lion - FFVIII
Don't Be Afraid - FFVIII
Only a Plank Between One and Perdition - FFVIII
One Winged Angel - FFVII (yes I know it's hella overrated and it's not even my favorite either, but they did miss an opportunity with this)
Cosmo Canyon - FFVII
Birth of a God - FFVII
JENOVA - FFVII
Final Fantasy IV Main Theme - FFIV
Golbez, Clad in Dark - FFIV
MYSTIC RE-QUEST I & II - FF Mystic Quest
Hill of Destiny - FF Mystic Quest
Rock 'n' Roll - FF Mystic Quest
Battle to the Death - FFVI
Searching for Friends - FFVI
Terra's Theme - FFVI
YuRiPa, Fight! No.3 - FFX-2
Apocalypsis Noctis - FFXV

From Pokemon I'm fine with what we've got, but to add a few more then:
Giratina Battle Theme - Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, & Platinum
Bede's Theme - Pokemon Sword & Shield
Gym Leader Battle Theme - Pokemon Sword & Shield

Likewise I'm fine with what we got from most FE games, but Fates doesn't have great representation aside from Lost in Thoughts All Alone. I'd say keep both the Japanese and English versions, and let other tracks from it shine. So:
Justice RIP (Storm) - FE Fates
Road Taken (Roar) - FE Fates
You of the Light - FE Fates
You of the Dark - FE Fates
End of All (Land, Sky, & Below versions) - FE Fates

Now for other FE tracks (well just 4 & 5, I love their OST):
Prologue ~ Birth of the Holy Knight - FE GotHW (seriously this also should've been in imo, especially for FE4 music rep)
For Whose Sake - FE GotHW
Seliph's Theme - FE GotHW
Thracia Army - FE GotHW
Fateful Showdown - FE GotHW
Versus Julius - FE GotHW
Blow'in in the wind - FE Thracia 776
Wind - FE Thracia 776
Leif's Army Seeking Victory ~ Scouting for Enemies - FE Thracia 776
World Map C - FE Thracia 776
Pressing Threat ~ Dark Bishops - FE Thracia 776
Pressing Threat ~ Final Chapter - FE Thracia 776

Sincerely, I didn't include One-Winged Angel because that song traumatized me in Theatrhythm. Seriously, at least Crazy Chocobo was short...

I wanted a Mega Man Battle Network song. If if recall, Sakurai said 3rd party music costs money, but even so. Couldn't they cut a couple of the robot master stages?

For Mario or rather the RPGs, I would've much preferred Paper Jam and Dream Team's boss themes over the regular battle themes. Throw in Bowser's Castle from Superstar Saga and some pre Sticker Star Paper Mario songs.

I didn't know Akuma's Theme was missing, but I didn't include Yun and Yang's theme considering that there might be issues there (although maybe Capcom fixed them).

You know, seeing my extensive list of songs from my last post just makes me wanna add more

but the problem is I want songs from other franchises by the third parties, like get over it from yakuza kiwami, battle b2 from shin megami tensei IV,and daredevil from ace combat 7: skies unknown.
As for actual ones: It seems I missed I am all of me in the sonic section and god shattering star from the FE section last time.

Well, after what happened with Sans and Cuphead, I can see DLC being used as a workaround for that. Or in the case of SMT, if there's a Smash 6 and Joker comes back, they could use them for a new SMT/Persona stage.

He/him/they.

Also Sakurai: Makes an entire SNK album with fifty songs.

For me it's the total lack of XenoBlade Chronicles X and Hyrule Warriors music, like seriously no love for Zelda's biggest spin-off? Nor from the best game that was on the Wii U? Though for the former they would probably have to get some royalties from Hiroyuki Sawano which considering how big of a composer he is outside of the video game industry, yeah, I can kinda see why.

I'm gonna hold off on more XenoBlade Chronicles 2 just in case Rex & Pyra are added to the roster as DLC, which I'm still hoping for so much.

After what happened with Min Min, this is likely.

Why do you think I included songs from it on my list of LoZ? :p (granted it’s only 2 songs but it’s a start)

I just thought of a few more:

Octarmaments [Splatoon 2] (Original) Unlike Octoweaponry, this one is based on when the Octarian boss is in its final phase rather than the first phase like what Octoweaponry used.

Battle! Pokemon Trainer [Diamond/Pearl] (Remix)

Battle! Giratina [Diamond/Pearl/Platinum] (Remix)

Going through my post again I forgot to put in a few tracks from my second favorite FF game, Type-0, so to fix that:
Tempus Bellum
We Have Arrived
Divine Fire
Horror of the Abyss
War: Warrior Worth a Thousand
Show of Power
War: The White Weapon (<-- this one is especially my favorite)

And some more miscellaneous tracks that most likely won't make it in but is a nice fantasy of mine:
Caiaphas Woods - Zwei!!
Klopp Caverns - Zwei!!
Kenopi Volcano - Zwei!!
Dapne Desert - Zwei!!
Fight!! Attack of Pokkle - Zwei!!
Seize the Day - Tokyo Xanadu
Eclipse - Tokyo Xanadu
Strayed Into Passage - Tokyo Xanadu
Hazy Moon - Tokyo Xanadu
Spiritual Wall - Tokyo Xanadu
Horrifying Disaster - Tokyo Xanadu
X.R.C. - Tokyo Xanadu
Gather's Under Night - Under Night In-Birth
Night Walker (Linne's theme) - Under Night In-Birth
Unknown Actor - Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [st]
Erudite Eyes (Chaos' theme) - Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late
Monochrome Memory (Seth's theme) - Under Night In-Birth
Flying Bird Sings of Freedom - Norn9
Discover Your Power - Norn9
Peril - Amnesia: Memories
Mahoroba no Sora - Ken ga Kimi: Momoyo Tsuzuri

(yes I admit I want more of my favorite obscure game OST's (and characters) in but I know that won't happen; especially with my last four choices being from visual novels, specifically otomes, that's gonna be near impossible)

Not my opinion, but one of someone I know: Birth of a God is missing from Sephiroth's pack.

with king of fighters 15 trailer due in one and a half hours, I thought I should add to the SNK list 50 songs isn't enough

namely goodbye esaka from KoF 2000, and ANYTHING from garou mark of the wolves, why nothing from that got in is beyond me.
maybe the tekken 7 remix of soy sauce for geese and the cyber edit of a kiss for geese from art of fighting 2, because you can't ever have enough geese howard when he's the face of SNK boss syndrome.
