And I believe you took up permanent residence on these forums, Sergio! C)p
Just kidding. Yes, it's the Halo theme.

Been a while since I've updated this thingy, so today there are two new songs: #18 and #19. Good luck to all! ^_^

I think #18 might be Inside The Deku Tree from Ocarina of Time?

I think it just might. :)

Glad it was still recognizable though, since I didn't play it note-by-note, just improvised from what I remembered it sounded like. Good job!


20 is almost here; though I have a couple extra recordings lined up, I want to come up with something special for this nice round number. Let's see.

#19 SIMPLY has to be a part of Jolly Roger Bay of Banjo Tooie fame!

Why, yes it is! Congrats NESGamer, you're on the scoreboard. :)


What a year it was, last year! In just two months you guys got down nearly 20 tunes, so here is hoping that we'll continue at least at that rate this year.

A few things have been changed. First, I got some new tech recently, so the recordings will be clearer - at least audio-wise. Compare this re-take of Mystery Song #9 with the original.

Another new thing this year is the occasional appearance of mp3s, in addition to videos. This way I can record more spontaneously, which means more songs for you guys to figure.

Let's start with such a tune. I've recorded this one just today, while a virus-scan gave my laptop a virtual colonoscopy. At first I was just goofing off with the keys, but then it became so funny I just had to make a recording of it. Hopefully the original tune is still recognizable. :P

Mystery Song #20

I racked my brain trying to remember what #9 was, because I have heard that song before.

Song #9 is the song that plays when you enter Nabnut's house in Click Clock Wood during the summer, from Banjo Kazooie.
Things to remember when writing figures of speech and sound:
The power of poetry comes from the ability to defy logic. Defy logic often.

Use a metaphor and tell us that your lover is the sky. Tell us that your lover is the sky. When you do that, we won't believe you. We won't believe you because saying so makes no sense, but we'll see a meaning. We'll see a meaning.

The other thing is the ability to be remembered. Love anything.

Love anything
