It's Me, Mario!

If you know anything about me, you know that I'm obsessive. While collecting versions of "MacArthur Park" and "Number of the Beast," I also try to pick up any/all versions of the Super Mario music that I can. After hearing a particularly moving version on NPR the other day, I decided to finally gather all of the versions I'd collected over the years and put 'em together into one torrent file. These range from 8-bit classics to lush orchestrations to cheesy rap to avant-garde productions. Let the games begin: Download the Torrent file here.

And if you want something visual (that's not too abysmal), here's a Mario-inspired photo collection.

My friends in Grand Rapids do a jazz version of the main Super Mario theme from the first game. Really funny to hear.

If they have a recording - I'll share it with you!
