Animal Crossing Crosses into Music With Island Tunes

Animal Crossing is a Nintendo Game taking the world by storm. Of course, there’s always a musical element to it. Within the game and outside of it, there are several examples of musical inspirations. Within the game play itself, you’re able to create music.

The Appeal of Remaking Originals

Switching styles is about music that’s original but unoriginal in a way. It’s music that has its basis in something else. In a way, the artists that we showcase that use songs as building blocks for creating their own work.

Disney and Dreams: Covering Snow White

“Someday my Prince will come” is the song that stands out as the song of this Princess. Maybe that’s just me, but it’s a darn popular song to cover.

Simlish Cover Songs

The songs they play from Sims 2 onward mimic the songs of our world but in Simlish or Sims English. So it’s seriously weird because it’s songs in a gibberish language. But they’re good.

Disney Medleys

Now for the main part of this article; Disney medleys. These are full of the same nostalgia and magic of the original Disney songs just multiple in a single song. A medley is a combination of a bunch of different things, a potpourri if you will. Disney medleys are a patchwork quilt of Disney songs that combine different sections of songs from several movies.

Word Crimes

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Word Crimes” is a parody of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. “Blurred Lines” came out in 2013 and became a hit. It was a perfect candidate for a parody. Weird Al changed the song from borderline rape-y to a satire about both ‘grammar nazis’ and those that infuriates them.

Interviewing Chetreo

Chetreo is one of the artists showcased in the Rick and Morty article about Rick and Morty themed covers and remixes. “The Universe Is Yours” and “A Really Long Time” are the particular songs from the article. 

Why start a blog on cover and parody songs?

The simple answer to the long story is that I started a blog about covers and parodies because I wanted to share them with people. I want to write about songs that are unique because they aren’t the original.
