[ev type=”google” data=”8169033819829939284″][/ev]

We have tried and tried and tried and tried to enjoy classical music. Most classical just puts us asleep, but there are a select few composers and songs which peak our interest. Of course, there are the dynamic sounds of Beethoven and the beautiful structure of Mozart, but our favorite is the great people at Nintendo. Please, let us explain.

Play! is a full symphony and choir which focuses soley on video game music, themes and visuals. The video shows their rendition of the Super Mario Bros. theme, but the fun doesn’t stop there.

  • FINAL FANTASY ®
  • SUPER MARIO BROS. ®
  • CASTLEVANIA ®
  • SUPER MARIO WORLD ®

  • BLUE DRAGON ®

One point of concern. In the video the person playing Mario is clearly seen missing a ring block multiple times. Couldn’t they have gotten a more capable player? Ahh…who cares. Just watch the video! — Andrew Dobrow

  1. Some of the video game soundtracks are better than the acutal game it self!
