Mario Paint Composer Cover of “Get Lucky” Hits all the Right Notes

Mario Paint on the SNES featured a music maker that allowed gamers to create their own melodies. Mario Paint Composer is the Windows (and Mac) version of that music maker, and in the right hands is capable of creating some wonderful covers.

Pianist Adam Shin skilfully arranged different elements in the Mario Paint Composer timeline to create an instrumental cover of Daft Punk’s funky track, Get Lucky. Shin uses hearts for the bass, mushrooms for the bass drums, aeroplanes for the guitar effects, and the Game Boy sound to stand in for the vocals. Have a listen to his chiptune rendering of Get Lucky below.

Game of Thrones: An 8-Bit Theme Remix

As opening credits go, the one to Game of Thrones is quite the spectacle. The music is equally stirring and a number of people have remixed the opening theme to good effect. Roger Lima strummed a rocky cover of it, and YouTube user Brennesselano played the tune on his piano. And now comes another variation of the opening theme, this time in the style of the old 8-bit chiptunes. Check it out below.

If you’d like to download the MP3, the creator, Digitapp, has made it available on his website.
