Video games comedian Brentalfloss has had a long-running "What if video game songs had lyrics?" gag. His first, Mega Man 2, I featured five years ago, and we all had a great laugh.

Reader Andrew G has, since he was six, always thought that the theme for Dr Wily's Castle from Mega Man 2 sounded like Elton John's "I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That". Both were released in 1988.


Super Mario Bros. is meant for tap-dancing, and I don't mean on a Goomba's head. Here's Brentalfloss's college buddy, C.K. Edwards - he appears in Billy Elliot on Broadway - whose dancing makes the theme sound all the more vaudeville.
