Paper Mario’s Toad Town – MichelleHeafy, ThunderScott, 8BitBrigadier

Video Games | Music | Paper Mario | Toad Town | Doublexjump.com

Paper Mario is one of our favorite Nintendo RPGs with its unique graphics, simple story, and charming characters. The soundtrack is one of our favorites to listen to, as well, and one of the most iconic tunes from the game is Toad Town.

A few years ago, a trio of talented musicians came together and created a cover of Toad Town. The YouTuber known as MichelleHeafy was on piano while 8BitBrigadier played the flute. ThunderScott was, well… everything else. I’ll admit, I was really amused to see him use the triangle in the cover!

All three of these musicians have their own channels dedicated to covers of beloved video game music. We hope you enjoy their Toad Town cover enough to visit some of their other videos!

Forgotten City from RiME – Lindsey Stirling

Rime | Video Games | Music | Music Video | Lindsey Stirling | YouTube | Doublexjump.com

Lindsey Stirling is one of our favorite musicians at this time. She does violin, mostly electric violin, and we don’t believe we’ve showcased her here a couple of times before on the site, but it’s been a while.

While Lindsey does mostly original songs right now — her next album is actually coming out near the end of this September — she does have a few gaming-related music videos up on her YouTube channel. The latest one was done a couple of years ago for the game RiME. While we’ve never played RiME, the music was beautiful, and Lindsey did a video for one of the original songs, Forgotten City. We hope you enjoy it as we do!

Phoenix Wright: Smooth Criminal

Music Video | YouTube | Phoenix Wright | Ace Attorney | Doublexjump.com

This is a rather silly music video that Rachel discovered recently. Using assets from the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games, the YouTuber MaximumVolty created a music video to Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.”

While there’s no rapid sequences of flashing lights, as all the scenes come from the games themselves, there are some quick transitions to go along with the beat of the music, so please be careful if you are sensitive to that sort of thing. Otherwise, we hope you enjoy this!

Forgotten Wind Temple — CrazyGroupTrio

About a year ago, we showcased a music video from a YouTube channel called CrazyGroupTrio, who did covers and remixes of music from video games. One album the artist has done is Temples of Ocarina, featuring songs from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Considering one of the games we’ve been streaming lately is Ocarina of Time, we thought we’d celebrate again how wonderful the soundtrack — and the plethora of covers there are — is. This particular song is for the Forgotten Wind Temple, a temple in the game that seems to have been cut out of or merged with the Forest Temple in the final version of the game. We hope you enjoy it!

Butterfly from Dance Dance Revolution — Claire Anne Carr

Remember Dance Dance Revolution? It was a game we personally never had, but I remember playing it years ago at a good friend’s house. One of the best songs we enjoyed playing was Butterfly.

Recently we discovered a channel on YouTube called Claire Anne Carr who does some “crazy piano” mixes covering various types of songs, including ones from video games. It was nostalgic to hear Butterfly again, even as a remix, and it was fun to watch the video with all the notes that were used during the remix. We thought you guys would enjoy it too!

Spider-Man PS4 Main Theme — Epic Game Music

This month’s music video is a cover from a game that we don’t even have. Spider-Man for the PS4 has quite the fanbase and, even though we don’t have a PS4, we can admit how much fun the game looks to play!

This rock cover of the video game’s main theme is by Epic Game Music. James Ronald is the name of the man behind the guitar (and, in some music videos, the Nintendo Labo). He’s been on the YouTube scene since March 2007, almost always breathing new life into video game tunes with his guitar.

We just recently discovered him, so we hope you enjoy his music too as we dive down the rabbit hole of his videos!

Save the date! We’re doing a special Twitch Stream to celebrate the Nintendo Switch! You can learn more about it here.

Top 20 Winter Nintendo Songs – Henriko Magnifico

Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone! Similar to last December, this month’s music video is celebrating songs from winter and ice levels from a plethora of Nintendo games.

This compilation was done by Henriko Magnifico, who’s channel is dedicated to all sorts of video game music. Aside from his YouTube channel, he also has a Twitch channel for his gaming and music. We first discovered this guy when we were searching for some background music to work to and realized he has a 24/7 radio dedicated to Nintendo and other video game music.

We hope you enjoy this compilation just as we did!

Take My Star — Yungtown

Happy Wednesday, everyone! As you may have noticed, we’re really enjoying Super Mario Party on the Nintendo Switch and this month’s music reflects that.

We’ve showcased Yungtown on here before with Settle It in Smash. This time around we’re showing his Mario Party game rap “Take My Star.” It’s a catchy song, with Rachel and I occasionally bursting out into the chorus while playing Mario Party.

While Yungtown hasn’t uploaded on YouTube in a while, his music is enjoyable on that platform, iTunes,  and Spotify. He does stream on Twitch as well, if you wanted to check him out there. Either way, we hope you enjoy “Take My Star!”

Triforce Quartet — Super Smash Brothers Brawl Theme

Happy Saturday, everyone! We’re sharing some more music today. This time it’s a cover of the Super Smash Brothers Brawl theme by the Triforce Quartet.

While they only have about a dozen videos up on their YouTube channel, they are fairly active on their Twitter channel considering they’re busy performing in various venues and conventions, such as PAX West.

Rachel and I love hearing covers of our favorite video game music, especially when the covers include string instruments like violins and cellos! We hope you enjoy this cover like we do!

Pokemon: Red & Blue Rock Violin Cover

It’s been a while since we’ve had a String Player Gamer video up on this channel! We’re still enjoying his work, and thought that one of his latest videos would be appropriate around this time.

With the hype for Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, this cover of the Red & Blue theme was perfect. Rachel and I are also suckers for violin music, so that was another point in this video’s favor. We hope you enjoy this rock violin cover of the Pokemon theme song!
