I’m the Boss Music Video

It’s no secret that Rachel and I enjoy watching YouTube, our favorites mostly being gamers. Most of the videos that they produce are reviews or let’s plays, but there are a few out there who showcase their love of video games in other creative ways.

Below is a music video for a “villain boy band” called Big Bad Bosses. A few YouTubers personified Ganondorf from the Legend of Zelda series, Bowser from the Super Mario series, Dr. Eggman from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, and Sephiroth from the Final Fantasy series. Respectively, they are Satchell Drakes, Jirard Khalil, Alex Faciane, and Nate Sharp.

In our opinion, they sound pretty damn good, and their music video is amusing, to say the least. We definitely hope you enjoy their music as much as we do!

Halo Theme by Lindsey Stirling and William Joseph

We’ve showcased a bit of Lindsey Stirling’s skills on this blog before, and we thought it high-time that we do it again.

Neither Rachel nor I have ever played Halo, but the music is often found in video game music compilations that we’ve seen around YouTube and Spotify. The music has always sounded epic to us, especially this violin and piano collaboration between Lindsey and William Joseph. We hope you enjoy the video down below and the music as much as we do!

Winter and Holidays Nintendo Music

There’s a YouTube channel that specializes in posting hour or so long videos of tunes from video games. Generally it’s more relaxing music, music that allows you to do your work with minimal distractions, which is what we tend to do when playing this YouTube channel on in the background.

The channel is run by someone who simply goes by the name Luigi. The compilations are something that he puts up mainly for fun rather than money, so there’s usually little to no ads to interrupt the hour-plus long videos of music.

This particular video of his encompasses winter themes from a plethora of Nintendo games, and is the most recent video that does so. He lists the tracks in the description of the video, if you’re interested. We hope you’re having a wonderful December and that this music keeps your mood festive!

Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker — Great Sea Cover

Why, yes, it’s another Legend of Zelda music cover! The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, has some of the most impressive music to go with its cel-shaded graphic style. Longtime Zelda fans were able to pick out strings of familiar music in the game’s locations from previous Zelda games, smiling at the nostalgia-inducing melodies.

While most Legend of Zelda games have a song for Hyrule Fields or another similar “hub” area, the Wind Waker had the Great Sea. Some folks found the sailing from island to island to be a bit tedious, but the music still invoked that same sense of adventure as the previous Hyrule Field melodies have done.

Josiah Everhart is a YouTuber who mixes his songwriting talents with his love of video games. He has a plethora of video game covers, along with some brilliant original work, and one of our favorites is his cover of the Great Sea. The cover includes guitars, some guest drum work, and the lyrics that Josiah wrote and sings himself. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Undertale: Megalovania Cover

We’ve showcased Taylor Davis on this blog before, and we thought it high time that we do it again.

This time around we’re showing off her cover of the Megalovania melody from the game Undertale. We figured it was a fair fit for around this time of year. Arguably, there’s spookier game music out there for Halloween, but Kris is not a fan of horror games. So you get this awesome rendition of Megalovania’s battle theme performed by the talented Taylor Davis!

Super Smash Bros Medley

Today we’re showing off another amazing fan cover of Nintendo music. String Player Gamer has been on YouTube for ever ten years producing orchestrated versions of video game music covers, original music, and the occasional song in a random genre. Diwa de Leon is the mastermind behind the String Player Gamer channel and specializes in string instruments (hence, the YouTube name), such as the violin, guitar, and the hegalong, which is a two-string guitar from the Philippines.

String Player Gamer was known for this Mini Mario Orchestra, showcasing how much effort, time, and talent he pours into these productions. However, while the quality of his recent videos has certainly not diminished, String Player Gamer has stopped his Mini Mario Orchestra as a precaution for his career about two years ago when the Nintendo company went took a rather aggressive stand on copyright issues. While the Mini Mario Orchestra is missed, String Player Gamer’s music is still phenomenal.

Down below is an older video, a favorite of ours, that uses the Mini Mario Orchestra for the Super Smash Bros. series. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and, if you’re interested in some of his more recent work, check out his collab with fellow YouTuber Jayhen for their vocal and guitar cover of Super Mario Odyssey’s theme, “Jump Up, Super Star!

Coming to a Close

Hey everyone! We just wanted to thank you for joining us on our first Pokemon Month! As it comes to a close, we did want to leave you with one last fun video that we found.
