Fans of video game music and/or piano aficionados, I present three pieces from the Super Mario Bros series: Super Mario World's Air Platform rag
, SMB2 overworld theme
, and SMB1 overworld theme
, expertly played "blind" by ragtime pianist Tom Brier.
According to the video descriptions, Tom doesn't play video games and hasn't heard any of these tunes before. If you're a ragtime enthusiast, you can see more of his playing in Keeper1st's video stream
. His ability to sight-read ragtime is mind-blowing.
I don't know these guys, but I've found myself watching these videos over and over, and decided more people should see them. Hopefully the attention isn't unwanted, but either way, please go easy on the snark (I know, it's a lot to ask).
