The Wii was home to some incredible little tunes; not only did we have the fantastic Wii Shop Channel theme (which truly received the praise it deserved earlier this year when the channel closed down for good), but we also had the equally lovely Mii Channel theme.
We vividly remember our first day with the Wii, excitedly creating Mii characters for hours on end before we even got stuck into any games, and the Mii Channel's music will never fail to bring a smile to our faces. We're not alone in this either, as proven by this performance by James Marron.
Called 'Wii Freestyle', the piece was born out of pure love for the Wii's sedate soundtrack. Marron tells us, "I did this lil' freestyle because I always loved the Wii theme song. It reminds me a lot of good memories when I used to play to Wii Sports and Mario Party!" If you're going to freestyle over anything, this is absolutely the way to go, and the whole thing seems to be going down pretty well amongst fans on Instagram.
It also brings up the age-old topic of the Switch's current lack of musical goodness. The Wii's music was a part of the experience, and something most of us look back on with nothing but happiness; it's a shame that younger players might not have that with the Switch.
Now then, who's up for a Nintendo Life dance choreography session to the GameCube loading screen?
Although I'm really fond of the music Chanel. That rap and rhythm doesn't match at all....
It’s better than the Wii home menu music. I still mute my TV every time I turn on my Wii until I have a game started. It may be the most annoying music ever created.
It’s funny to me how people call this the “Wii Theme Song.”
@MH4 Ikr, had to tell my brothers to stop calling it that yesterday as that's wrong
French isn't the most HipHop of languages to my ear but he's done a good job there! Like it!
Mii, myself, and i.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that if you boot up the Wii U in Wii mode, and start the Wii Shop Channel, it still loads and plays the Wii Shop Channel music (even though there are no items in the shop to buy, although you can still download the Wii U Transfer app and the Zelda Skyward Sword save file fix). Anyway, it was cool to see I can still listen to the music if I want.
You can still hear the song on the shop... people talking like it doesnt exist anymore!
@stevep booo! how dare you!
Shouldn't the Wii Shop be the one that should, supposedly, "live on"?
Max "Smooth McGroove" Gleason is enough to win this comment section alone.
@stevep Oh just get used to it.
As if people on the internet will let this song die.
It's basically on every other video as background music along with the Wii shop channel song.
@IceEarthGuard there is just something so wrong with the home menu music... if I hear it for long it worms it’s way into my brain and I’ll go to bed and close my eyes and still hear it! 😀
What in the??? I don't get it? What was he saying?
Should I sing the Smash ultimate theme death metal style? 😋
I came here to look in the comments expecting videos of better songs and you guys delivered. Thanks @Fuz @kukabuksilaks
