LTTP: Mega Man 9 theme music on ukulele

I am still humming along with ukulele covers of video game theme music. Tonight, for instance, I was trying to remember where my favorite Kid Icarus theme cover had come from. I’d first heard it on Ray Barnholt’s excellent Famicom muxtape, which is now—and for the foreseeable future—nonexistent. Fortunately, one quick, successful google revealed that the musician I was looking for is none other than the Tanguy Ukulele Orchestra.

And while what follows apparently made some web-rounds back in July—I hate it when that happens!—I nonetheless feel vindicated in reposting it, thanks to yesterday’s North American WiiWare launch of Mega Man 9. So! Here is the Mega Man 9 theme music, as lovingly realized by the Tanguy Ukulele Orchestra:

The musician’s entire oeuvre is available for both listening and downloading at the official Tanguy Ukulele website (see below).

    I had the same thing happen to me back in the day with a Mega Man 3 remix.

    I had downloaded it from napster initially, and couldn’t find it again after a re-format. I finally dug around enough to figure out that it had come from OC Remix—a site that I’ve loved ever since.

    (...it was “Blue Bomber Forever” by Mustin)
