When I consider my favorite games of all time or my favorite game music of all time, I can't honestly say any DK titles make it onto my list. However, they were fun and well-made games. I think I've been blocking them out ever since Diddy Kong Racing came into being, although my sister and I did have some good times on the level where you have to fly around and collect eggs. It sounds lame, I know, but you're flying around a volcano and you can either knock eggs away from other players or just steal them from their nest.
But anyway, while I delight in fails (especially epic fails) as much as the next guy, there is an epic WIN in DK Country that I am itching to point out. DK Country provides the player with the unique, though limited chance, to control a gorilla riding a rhino. While playing this monstrosity, you are invincible (to my knowledge) and can completely destroy any foes that stand in your path; as it should be. I mean, what can beat a gorilla on top of a damn rhino? I think if I saw that in real life I would soil myself.
I have provided a picture to illustrate my point:
