Music To My Ears

I was at the rock climbing gym last night.  Usually, the management plays either classic rock (which I love) or techno (which I don’t) over the sound system.  Last night, though, as I was working my way up a rather complicated 5.10D, I heard something I hadn’t heard before.  It was a cover of the overworld theme of The Legend of Zelda.

This isn’t exactly what I heard last night, but it is close.

I’ve known for a while that individuals and bands and orchestras were all recording versions of the 8-bit Nintendo music.  And it doesn’t surprise me, because as I said in ANESthetized, that music is good music.  Here are a few of these versions.

Quite possibly the best recording of The Legend of Zelda theme ever.  This girl really goes all out!

Metal version of Castlevania.  Not sure if this is “Vampire Killer” or not, but it is cool.

Awesome version of several Metroid themes.
