Ex-Kotaku Editor David Wildgoose showed me this, and I can't stop listening to it. Fans of The Smiths will recognise their classic breakthrough hit 'This Charming Man', but music producer 'Lazyitis' has completely reproduced the song in the style of Mario music. And it sounds amazing.
So I've decided to play Bernie Taupin to Lazyitis' Elton John and write some new lyrics for the song. This is beyond lame, but what the hell.
(Here's the original song for reference!)
This Charming Plumber Punctured Kart again, On a hillside desolate Bowser threw a blue shell again.
Then in his brand new Kart It’s Donkey Kong
I count my lives in dungarees With a power up flower And a mushroom for speed
I would go out tonight, But I’ve got the world’s worst red hat hair. This man said it’s gruesome, That someone with that moustache would care.
A jumped up plumber boy, Who never won the race, She said, come rescue me, She knows so much about these things, She knows so much about these things.
