I love this song. Paper Mario is probably one of my top five favorite games. It was an inspiration for a lot of my early artistic work when I first began drawing Mario and whatnot. I remember I wrote three fan-fics based on Paper Mario, and I had a whole slew of other ideas. I used to turn on the game and just watch the opening video, which is where you'd be able to hear this song in its original form. It's very catchy. The notes aren't official because I could never find sheet music for this game. Plus I think in the game the song was in Fmaj or something, and this is B flat major.

So I took the song and redid it in a sort of cross between a marching band (Wallace & Gromit) and Merry Men from the Shrek soundtrack.

Instruments:

Piano (Brite and Honky-tonk)
Accordion
Tuba
Percussion
Clarinet (added after the rest was recorded onto the computer)

How do you submit songs?

Well, I submit them as flash animations. The song is in the flash animation itself; it's not a direct mp3 or audio file.

Paper Mario 3DS is a remake, so this could be the title theme FTW

Yeah, really. I couldn't finish Paper Mario 2 because I thought it was incredibly boring. Maybe it's just because I was older, but still...

Oh, really? I thought Paper Mario 2 was far too easy. And the storyline just didn't interest me. That's just me though. Lol.

I agree Paper Marios are just the best Mario games out there! They have sooooo much reading in them! I think the gaming companies are encouraging us to do more reading :aww:! I have all three Paper Marios! Well the first one is saved on my wii because I couldn't find it else where! AGH!!! Now this song is stuck in my head!

I haven't gotten the third one yet, but that's mostly because I'm broke. :XD:

Well the third isn't as great as the others... for one, most of it isn't even 3D worlds... Just flat 2D worlds... You can go into 3D but only for a short period... :|

I LOVED the original Paper Mario; it was one of those unforgettable N64 games. Music wise it has to come right behind Super Mario Sunshine as my favorite in a Mario game. XD
By ear? That's amazing, and I can't underscore that enough, because I've always been envious of your memorization abilities. My one suggestion is that the piano could be a little more dominant in places, because it gets drowned out by the multitudes of other things going on. I say this because I like BOTH elements of the music, and the intricacies they present.
Anyway, I agree, it is a catchy tune seeing that it has familiar Mario elements, yet is somehow a refreshingly new melody. As usual, spiffin' work, mate! :w00t:

Huzzah! Super Mario Sunshine rocked. Memorization is easy for music stuff after you've played the songs a hundred times over lol. Honestly, you would have them memorized too if you played a Mario-a-day (keeps the Dr. Mario away.) .... AHHH terrible joke. :XD:

Yea, I actually did redo the piano several times, but it turned out I should've lowered the volume on the other instruments. But I didn't want to lower the volume on the other instruments because then I'd have to redo the entire thing. Oh well, next time.

Yea I noticed it's definitely related to the Yoshi song you can find on Super Mario World and remixed in Super Smash Brothers Melee (called Yoshi's Story). The main melody in that song is very related to the melody in this.

Have you been to England/Australia? :XD: Everyone I know has either been to Europe or Australia, and I'm so jealous of them.
