SimCity 2000’s “Serious Sims” EWI Cover by Peter Anthony Smith (With Trivia!)

  Music and trivia all in one? What a great combination! SimCity I feel is a not a game that gets too many of its songs covered, so it’s a good thing that Peter Anthony Smith and his trusty EWI is here to provide a pretty faithful sounding recreation.

Ace Attorney’s “Cornered” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by James Ronald

  So personally I think this is the most iconic song in the Ace Attorney games and James Ronald has found a way to make it much more epic.

The Rise and Fall of Mario and the Brick Breakers – A Behind the Music Style Parody of Mario and Friends

  I don’t think I ever would have imagined a Behind the Music type video featuring the Mario characters as a rock band would have ever been a thing. And here it is. It’s surprisingly really good too, I wasn’t expecting to sit down and watch it all the way but I did. I love …

Pokemon X/Y’s “Lumiose City” Alto and Soprano Saxaphone Cover perf. by Sab Irene

  Listening to this saxaphone cover of Lumiose City from Pokemon X/Y by Sab Irene it makes me yearn to here some small band covers of Pokemon music live.   You can fine more of Sab’s music over on her Soundcloud.

Final Fantasy VII’s “One-Winged Angel” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

  Smooth McGroove returns with one of his most impressive A Capella performances yet. One-Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII is probably the most famous final boss theme in gaming history and for good reason. As someone who is not that big of a Final Fantasy fan (especially VII) even I love this theme.   …

Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire “Littleroot Town” Cover perf. by Insaneintherainmusic

  Another track from Insaneintherainmusic, this time a cover of Littleroot Town, the starting town in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Seems pretty fitting since we’re not too far away from the release of their remakes.   This track is part of a 10 song album called Back to Your Littleroots which contains more 3rd Generation …

Mario Kart 8’s “Dolphin Shoals” Jazz Cover perf. by Insaneintherainmusic

  Insaneintherainmusic does it again by creating a unique jazz cover of Dolphin Shoals from Mario Kart 8. Impressive because it was already very jazzy to begin with. I especially like how he was able to fit the Jolly Roger Bay theme from Super Mario 64 into the piece. Stuff like that is always really …

“The Story of a Bear and a Bird”, A Banjo-Kazooie Tribute by Erik the Dud

I really enjoyed Erik the Dud’s debut song. Truly no better subject matter than a game like Banjo-Kazooie, a game that has been a major part for a lot of people’s childhoods.

Diddy Kong Racing’s “Pirate Lagoon” Jazz Cover perf. by Insaneintherainmusic

Diddy Kong Racing was a game that I enjoyed with friends but never really got into. Thus, I don’t really remember the music all that well. What I did enjoy though was listening to this excellent jazz cover of one of it’s songs by Insaneintherainmusic.

Super Mario Galaxy 2’s “Throwback Galaxy” A Capella Cover perf. by The String Player Gamer

Diwa De Leon is back with an A Capella cover of the Throwback Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy 2. Of course that level is one of my favorites from the game because it faithfully recreates Whomp’s Fortress from Super Mario 64. I suppose that makes this cover a two-for-one deal, huh?

Ocarina of Time’s “Kokiri Forest” Violin Cover perf. by Taylor Davis

This is the whimsiest I’ve ever heard the theme for Kokiri Forest and I love it. Taylor Davis never ceases to amaze.

Rerez – 5 Awesome Songs from Obscure Video Games

It’s such a shame when a obscure game has some really cool aspects of it. These games for example are games that I really never even heard of but I was really digging each tune. I’m thinking of checking some of these games out, if I can.   If you liked this video and you’re …

Twilight Princess’ “Midna’s Lament” Soprana and Alto Sax Cover perf. by Music by Pedro

Oh man, this is perfect. Music by Pedro is definitely improving as he perfectly recreates Midna’s Lament from Twilight Princess, which is one of my favorite songs from any Zelda game. I could listen to this all day.
