Neato: ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Cancan and Marimba Tributes

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

Arguably, The Legend of Zelda is one of the best video game franchises of this known world. More so, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the best games ever created. Period. When you combine the awesome power of Zelda with the geeking power of those who are enamored with our green tunic wearing hero then all balance is fully restored to the nerdosphere.

One Japanese YouTuber has turned the sounds of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time into an awesome rendition of the Parisian song, ‘The Galop’ from Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, music more commonly known from the dance “the cancan”.

When teenagers get bored, a few things can come of that. Some teens turn to pot, sex, drugs, and rock and roll, others pick up hobbies or sports, and others, more so in the geek community, decide to bust out some marimbas and pay tribute to The Legend of Zelda. And why not? YouTube user Mart0zz has successfully, with the aid of his plaid short-wearing friends, recreate the oh so magically enjoyable songs from TLOZ:OOT.

Here, witness the awesome marimba “Legend of Zelda Theme’ song:

And who could forget such favorites as ‘The Lost Woods Theme’:

or ‘The Song of Storms’:

Heck, why not the ‘Gerudo Valley Theme’!:

All of these are all well and good; very impressive to say the least. I wouldn’t know the first thing when it comes to music theory and listening to find the right notes to play. Congratulations Mart0zz you win 10 Internets!
