Fans of Super Mario Odyssey probably spent most of 2017 with this joyful tune stuck in their head from the Nintendo Switch instant classic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4xW9aCg2zY
That’s right — Pauline from the original Donkey Kong is back! And with the help of the band that Mario found around New Donk City, she sings the song about halfway through the game. If you like the song, you are in luck. You can easily spend an afternoon on YouTube listening to great covers of “Jump Up, Super Star!” by some really creative fans. Here are some of our favorites:
5. Violin Cover / Remix by String Player Gamer
This fiddle player sounds like he is straight out of a Mario Kart soundtrack.
4. Piano Cover by かてぃん / Hayato.S
This guy has some serious talents on the keys! Definitely worth watching through to the end of this one.
3. A Cappella Cover by PXL8
There are a lot of great A Cappella covers on YouTube — But this group takes the cake.
2. Acoustic Cover by The Team Players
As with A Capella, you can find plenty of Acoustic covers of “Jump Up, Super Star.” These two love birds top them all (and they have other great Nintendo songs on their Channel!)
1. Super Mario Odyssey for Gamecube? – Alternate Reality Game Music by Nick’s Personal Symphony
Once you listen to this version, it’ll be forever stuck in your head.
