Topic: Mario music from way before Mario

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Stumbled on this track from 1971 and couldn't believe my ears.
Had to upload to my youtube account, and came here to share with some fellow nintendo fans

Coincidence or inspiration ?

Unless this actually shares its melody with a track in a Mario game I'm forgetting about this is just music in that same style... (no idea what it's called, horrible with names and terms of all kinds)

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there


@Bikstok Sounds more like the Cantina song to me...

Try this one if you want to hear some pre-Mario Mario music:

I'm also certain Oh Well, Part 2 was the inspiration for a Zelda theme, but I can't quite place it... Koji Kondo was definitely into 70s funk and rock. Take this song from Deep Purple for example...



For this one you need to listen closely to the bass.

Also, on the topic, the theme of the legend of Zelda was inspired by Bolero, a song they intended to use as the theme to begin with.

Yeah I don’t know either.
