SMW - The complete soundtrack to Super Mario World, covered by one man using dozens of instruments. Roughly in game order, faithful to the originals, with some bizarre artistic license thrown around. A private hobby made public. Dedicated to Koji Kondo.

This is absolutely terrific. Sounds like a mix of Isotope 217, Zappa, and The Minibosses.

Excellent. I don't remember the Vanilla Dome being so moody and edgy.

See also The Mario Opera by Jonathan Mann. I can't find a page devoted to it, but listen to the first five songs listed here (the later songs listed are not from TMO).

Sweet concept. Although I think the originals are mostly better. YMMV.

I'd also highly recommend everyone seek out the Mario Zelda Big Band Live cd by any means necessary (unsavory means is generally the easiest way, since it is an import...). Words cannot explain the joy that CD brings me. You'll see...

I still think that this is the best super mario world remix out there, via Songs To Wear Pants To

And let's not forget the wonderful old favorite Group X's Mario Twins.

This and the next two posts just demonstrate how much pop music has gone downhill in the last 25 years...

Coldplay or Super Mario?

deliquescent: that's super mario brothers, not world.

Nothing will ever top the "Closer" Mario Remix.
