Here's a clue: it's not Mario Circuit

Since Super Mario Kart launched on the European Virtual Console just a few weeks ago we've had those catchy ditties stuck in our heads all over again. Imagine our joy, then, when we stumbled upon a fully re-recorded and rather lovely-sounding soundtrack from The OneUps.

Taking ten classic tracks and giving them a pleasingly laidback, jazzy style, they've done a pretty good job of making the music listenable outside of the heat of battle. In fact, we might just have them dimly in the background at our next cocktail party.

You can buy the album on CD or download them in mp3 format from the band's official page. Five points for correctly identifying the course layout on the CD cover.
