I am in shock! Listening to SWV's new album, I Missed Us, in anticipation of possibly reviewing it, out of nowhere I hear the Fairy's Theme from Nintendo's classic Legend Of Zelda game series start playing! But where was it coming ?
Was it a flash advert on an open webpage playing, a custom ringtone I had forgotten I had set on my phone, or was I actually having a visitation from one of the Great Fairy's of the series who finally was going to grant my wish to restore Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey's voices back to their prime! *GASP* Just please let it not be the fairy from Ocarina of Time-see why in the video below.
It happened to be none of the above, though that might not shock you in the case of my last suggestion ( or even at all if you've read the post title). In reality the theme had actually been sampled by the title track of SWV's album, I Missed Us!
For those who are not game fans, this will all be a non-incident, but for me, it just blew my mind and I had to post on it! It's not even the main theme of the gaming series that is used, so to hear it sampled is crazy! SWV are perhaps the last group in the world I would ever have thought would be featuring a retro gaming sample, but it totally works!
