This week on Music Monday, we’ll be heading back into the world of
Super Mario Odyssey
But today we’ll be doing something a little different, instead of analyzing, we’ll be taking a look at some fun facts about the song to celebrate the week release of Mario Odyssey!
Jump Up Super Star: Extra
Here’s the post to Super Mario Odyssey in case you missed it!
With that said, Let’s Jump Right in!
I’m sure you all know the genre theme that was thrown out was a “Big Band” feel, but there’s a bit more to this song than meets the eye. The Super Mario Odyssey Main Theme: “Jump Up! Super Star!” is the first main Mario theme song to ever include vocals. In addition, the song was performed by Pauline(the singer was Kate Higgins). You can even hear the theme from Donkey Kong when Paulina is singing: “Odyssey, Ya see”. Super Mario Odyssey’s: Jump Up Super Star released worldwide October 20, 2017.
And of course, let’s not forget the fancy little musical trailer that came out for our, used to be, plumber. (Apparently, Mario is no longer a plumber haha).
