Sunday Serenade: Zelda, Mario Kart, Parry Gripp, and more!

Time for another Sunday morning dose of random songs that I’ve been listening to this past week! Welcome to Sunday Serenade — now let’s crank the jams up with…

“Moo Moo Meadows” from Mario Kart Wii — Not only is this track’s name fun to say, but it’s a gee-willikers good time to hear as well! Mario Kart doesn’t pretend to be high class; it’s dorky music that’s catchy once you get over your pretensions.

“Lorule Castle” from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds — This is a good companion piece. Another famous Nintendo franchise, another “just having fun” tune. This time, it’s more of a swashbuckling adventure piece.

“Crazy” by FDVM — Lots of songs out there about guys falling for “crazy” girls. Guess it’s not as exciting to sing about sane, balanced, and smart women?

“Don’t I Know Enough” by I am Oak — Poppy track that fuses an old folk sound with a more modern beat. Makes for great driving music, I’d wager.

“Get Shaky” by The Ian Carey Project — To my ears this sounds like something straight from the ’80s, but I guess it was a popular dance track back in 2008. Must have missed it.

“Ice Cream Tiger” by Parry Gripp — This man is a national treasure and should be treasured for his contributions to musickind.

    Parry Gripp was new to me, which seems surprising now I’ve read his wikipedia entry. Thanks for the introduction.

    I don’t hear the 80s in “Get Shaky” – classic mid-90s sound to me. Definitely out of sync for 2008 either way – and what’s with the name? Putting “Project” or “Experience” after someone’s name only works if the someone is already famous. Are we supposed to know who Ian Carey is? Not according to his wikipedia entry, which clearly suggests this song is his only cvlaim to fame.

    I miss the Wii era and its games, every month i tell myself next month then i close the page that offer Wii U for a cheap price, The Switch is great but i want to play games from Wii and Wii U.

    That Mario kart track … brings so many sweet memories, now i’ll just look for all sound tracks from Wii games 🙂

    The Parry Gripp voice sounded very familiar- and yes, he is a national treasure for the amount of fun he has brought my kids over the years. I hadn’t heard the ice cream tiger one before.
