One Beard Becomes Eight, Sings Zelda's Most Famous Theme

It was only a matter of time before video-game a cappella master Smooth McGroove took on the Zelda theme. Now, he has—or rather he, his cat and his seven doppelgängers have.


This version of Link to the Past's famous overworld theme is one of Smooth's more percussive recent works, and it sure does get me jazzed to play A Link Between Worlds. His cat makes a particularly excellent appearance in this video, too.

I have a terrible confession to make.

I'm starting to hate Smooth McGroove.

Rather, I'm starting to hate that I always seem to see his stuff whenever I come on. I enjoy listening to him, but it almost feels like anyone I talk to, or any gaming website I go to I hear about something new that Mr. McGroove has done. Call me a sourpuss, but I feel like it's being beaten so much over my head that I just honestly cannot listen to his stuff anymore.

Guy has unlimited talent, that's to be true, but it's just gotten old to me.

Yes, someone needed to come in here and be a negative Nancy.
