I just realized that goldenrod is basically just the bicycle theme slowed down. (Jazzed up in the case of HG/SS)
But it sounds great! A few little accidental (practically, not musically) grace notes after 00:20 and the melody, like you said, could've been brought out a little more, but who pulls off a perfect performance?
It was great.
EDIT: Just watch though, now someone's gonna come in, quote me saying "who pulls off a perfect performance", and say "I do!"
