PS: If you're looking for the Zelda sheet music, it's here.

Hmm, was just having a conversation w/ someone trying to pinpoint when 8-bit soundtrack pieces became the ubiquitous, musical equivalent of "The quick brown fox...". As good as the Mario & Zelda themes are, it's safe to say the Internet has hit its saturation point with endless lonelygirl15's uploading their take. Please, please, no more.

That said, if someone wants to try syncing/mashing up these 31 Zelda versions, certainly go for it.
I was hoping for some Zelda on a kalimba but found none.
I'm 37 years old and have never played Zelda. Not ever. Mario Bros.? Hundreds of times. I fully realize this makes me an alien.
...this is the musical equivalent of the abomination 'jackass.' Moronic. This does not deserve to be written about on Music thing, if you ask me. Although I am aware that no one did.
just to add to the idiocy, here is a live recording from 2002 or so when we used to rock the zelda.

yo, what's with all the hatorade? the music for zelda is some of the most beautiful music ever composed. play some gameboy and get your head out of your ass.
No melodica? I must be leaving now. I have a mission.
13rian! great version. The best zelda theme cover ever.
what's the name of your band? i have to tag it so it appears on last.fm :D
This one came out pretty good toohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZpD0btOZx8
thanks for speaking nice about the zelda cover. that band was known as Gala Jive Jut (memorial myspace) and that's one reason why we never went anywhere, it was hard to say, to spell, to rememer, etc.... Bad band name. But we did a bunch of these awesome novelty covers, including a danny elfman suite of BeatleJuice/Simpsons/PeeWees Big Adventure.

i am now the overclock orchestra, other members of that band are the MM4 and they do a pretty sick Megaman these days.
Any OoT fans remember Saria's Song? What a tune, I found a cover on myspace, www.myspace.com/notworththemoney
Yea i heard that cover! It's awsome! that link doesn't work anymore, now its www.myspace.com/nwtm

The piano video was removed due to rules violation or something. The best mario and zelda piano medley ever put on internet though is definitely the one from koopakool on youtube!!! This guy is out of his mind
