Skyward Sword's Music Sounds Even Better When SNES-ified

Who needs an orchestra?
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's music is up there with the best of the series, and made all the more powerful by its use of a real orchestra. But how do the melodies themselves hold up when taken back to something a little less realistic? "Very well indeed" is the answer.
YouTube user MischievousMusings has posted a so-called "demake" of the game's Ancient Harbour theme as it would have sounded during the Super Nintendo days, using instruments from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It sounds every bit as good as on the Wii; maybe even a little better if your ears are tuned to the 16-bit ways.
