Postmodern Jukebox Founder Gives SUPER MARIO BROS. a Ragtime Medley

Postmodern Jukebox Founder Gives SUPER MARIO BROS. a Ragtime Medley

Over thirty years ago, Super Mario Bros. paved the way for one of Nintendo‘s most successful franchises with delightful gameplay and a very catchy theme song by composer Koji Kondo. That piece of music has been covered many times since the game’s release, but it’s probably never been a ragtime medley until now. Scott Bradlee, the founder of Postmodern Jukebox, is releasing a new solo album, and one of the songs is his rousing take on the iconic Super Mario Bros. theme. But as you’ll soon hear, Bradlee added music from some of Mario’s other adventures as well.

Bradlee’s cover hits the music from the first two stages of Super Mario Bros. before making a surprising transition to the main theme from Super Mario Bros. 2, which was also composed by Kondo. And to close out the video, Bradlee touched upon another masterpiece from Kondo: the theme from Super Mario World, the fourth game in the series.

This is one of the lead tracks from Bradlee’s solo album, Songs I Know By Heart. We recently featured another song from the collection, which was Bradlee’s jazzy cover of the Rick and Morty theme. The other songs include Bradlee’s take on the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind,” Radiohead’s “Karma Police,” “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate FactoryChildish Gambino’s “Redbone,” and more. You find out more about Songs I Know By Heart here, and it is available for download here.
