  1. This song actually inspired a friend and I to make an arrangement of Super Mario 1 and 2 tunes for a group combo of our high school jazz band. We played it when we went on tour, and every crowd went crazy. Who dosen't know the Super Mario Brothers theme? Anyway, this song is mad stupid crazy, to say the least. It should be played on every major radio station world wide... but perhaps that's taking it a bit too far, I'm not sure.


  2. As I was listening to this it just seemed to get better and better as the song went on. The bass pickup at 1:58 really made this song stick out to me when I was going through all the songs on my playlist and it's gradually made it's way onto one of my cds. Another thing - I really like the ending, the way that the piano echos out was really cool.


  3. Alright, here's your "good jazz lover".

    The sax could definately sound more realistic, but the sax is used appropriately throughout the whole song. The piano solo is very well done, and the sax notes near the end of it are a deacent lead into another sax solo. I would have loved to hear a long sax cadenza followed by a band hold and drum fill to end the piece rather than the piano chord used. The drum solo at 1:37 could have been longer as well, but overall a great remix of the classic Secret of Mana theme.


  4. During my lunch period every day, this song can be heard comming from my schools music hallway. My 3 friends and I (drums, bass, guitar, and keyboard) play this song and many other remixes and such every day and this one tops the list. The things that we've done with it are crazy though, speeding it up, slowing it down, different keys, distortion, the list goes on. Definately one of my OCR favorites.
