#11 is the first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. One example of its usage in a game is in The Villi People level of Earthworm Jim 2.

#12 is the theme / menu music of Angry Birds.

I'm not sure what #13 is, but your performance of it is quite impressive!

I actually feel pretty bad! If I can get a hold of a decent microphone, I'll try to contribute some tunes to this (assuming that's allowed). All I can do is whistle, though...

Great work, Sergio! Both are accurate and correct descriptions, getting you two more points. :)

Yeah, I realize this early-bird-thingie creates quite an unbalance. There are a couple things we can do about it. On my part, I'll release new videos more evenly throughout the day (eg. instead of three new ones at once, I'll do one-by-one maybe a few hours apart). On your part, enabling notifications on this topic might be useful. Here is how to do it.


Oh, and a new tune, #14, is out now. Good luck! :)

Is #13... The Great Mighty Poo?


When something smells, it's usually my monitor.

Yep, the one and only! Funny though, when I checked your answer on Youtube and watched the first video, I realized that the original GMP tune plays slightly differently than what I played from memory... oh well!

Good going Gorf, welcome to the second place on the highscore list! :)


You've also unlocked #15, for the lucky person who gets here and recognizes the popular tune first.

Fresh from my harddrive, Mystery Song #16 is up and ready to be solved. Get there before it gets cold! :)

#16 is Prelude, from the Final Fantasy series.

I'm... I'm sorry, everyone.

This time I don't hate you because I wouldn't know that one anyway.
This is what I get for being so stubborn about the Final Fantasy series!

Hey think it would be possible for me to submit a really bad cover using this? (only works on Google Chrome)
I can't play any instruments and never actually did anything musical, so I'd be just playing a very basic melody by memory in hopes someone would recognize it.

I love that thing, so I approve of the idea. Hopefully SiamJai will too. Also, that Chrome remark's not strictly true, it's worked on every version of Firefox I've tried it on.

Oh, sorry about that. Didn't work on my Firefox so thought it was the case (I was also pretty sure I remembered reading somewhere that it only worked on Chrome, must have been something else).

Sergio, with your solutions it's so easy to update the highscore table! :P
Yes, it's Prelude from Final Fantasy. For the real thing, check out this video of all the different versions of this theme throughout the games. Nice trip down memory lane.

Sure, let's give it a try and see how it goes! Send me a PM with the title and link to the tune you've made, and I'll put it up. (A similar fun music webtoy is the Les Paul guitar, I've made quite a few simple tunes with it back then.)

Speaking of simplicity, #17 is out.

I believe #17 is the Halo theme / menu music...
