Music Mondays: Zelda Dubstep and John Legend

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Normally I approach fan-made remixes of theme music with the same skepticism as an astrophysics symposium hosted by Sarah Palin. The first thing for any bored nerd with a macbook and an overinflated sense of self-worth is to remix a classic video-game tune in a vain attempt to make it ‘hip for teh clubs’. Naturally the vast majority of these are absolute garbage. But every so often, the musical gems that do break away from this ocean of excrement shine all the brighter for their struggle. Here are some sick remixes of classic Legend of Zelda theme songs that have been gaining some hype recently:

Zedd-  Legend of Zelda Remix

Ephixa- Lost Woods Dubstep Remix

Bonus Track: Rolling in the Deep (John Legend Cover)

To be fair, Adele‘s original Rolling in the Deep was a pretty good song in its own right. And it really shouldn’t make sense to cover one of her songs because you’d be removing the best part: her unquestionably fantastic voice. That being said… John Legend absolutely kills it here, reminding everyone that he’s John F*%#ing Legend.  This is going to be huge.
