I love music. I love video games. I love music from video games. I love it when someone does a good cover of a piece of video game music. So how about a possibly semi-regular feature in which I share some great covers of tracks from video games with you?
In the first of these, I would like to introduce you to MES, or Mariachi Entertainment System. They’ve covered lots of classic tracks from games like Mega Man, Metroid, Castlevania and Kirby, all of which are worth listening to.
They also did this cracking version of one of my very favourite pieces of video game music, Koji Kondo’s Gerudo Valley, from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Check it out, then go listen to their entire back catalogue.
