My son got a melodica for Christmas and plays it frequently, and also is teaching himself to play the piano -- often simultaneously. We hear the "Mario" them a lot, both from YouTube and also the living room.

This is a good post. Also, I love the "Underwater Theme" for Super Mario Bros. It always brings a smile to my face. I mean I hate that level but I love that theme.

And I'm not sure why I never picked up on the fact that the "Underwater Theme" has a very "Polka" feel to it. This is not a complaint, just something I never noticed until this version of the theme was heard.

I had one of these as a kid and would blow on it and make lots of annoying noises. I'm sure my parents loved it.

carter jr. came into this world decades after this was first released, and he is captivated by the sound design and the score.

This video made me feel weirdly like I was watching someone else's fetish.
