Of all the hundred million reasons to praise Super Mario Bros. 3 – the warp whistles, the shy ghosts, the questionable assertion that raccoon body parts allow you to fly – you should never forget about the iconic musical score by legendary game composer Koji Kondo. Musician Scott Bradlee has put together an acoustic version of the score, set to a hypnotic speed-run of the game. It’s a classy, jazzy tribute, full of fun little moments – pay special attention to the moment around 10:35, when Mario fights Bowser. Check out the full video below:
