Looks like the Legolambs are now willing to make a musical out of anything now, and thank god for that — this time, it’s the classic Super Mario Bros NES game. I think what I like best about this tune is how straightforward it is (even compared to other Legolamb’s songs); Mario’s not worried or conflicted, he’s just happily singing about stomping on Goombas’ head. It’s always nice to see a man take pride in his work. Thanks to Terjay for the tip.
