If you're like me, and you shouldn't be, you were probably enraptured 25 years ago with Mario Paint's composing tools. They were simple, but fun, and they definitely helped me learn that I really didn't have much musical aptitude.

Since then, though, there was a standalone composer made that extended what Nintendo did with the original, and people way more talented than I could ever be started making Mario Paint-y versions of all kinds of different music.

So, here's a thread to talk about some awesome MPC music you've found on YouTube. I'll start with a pretty great one from one of gaming's best soundtracks, Mega Man 2. It's not as polished as some others you'll find, but it's wonderfully frenetic.

And I guess maybe have some Final Fantasy stuff, too.

Edit
And yeah, I made a thread like this a long time ago, too, specific just to FF back then. You can review it too. And another random thread like it.


Edit
Another edit: The more I listen to that Mega Man 2 one, the more it seems augmented with some features that I'm not sure are even available in Mario Paint Composer - aka, it seems like it might be partially faked. Shameful!

"What is Love?" on Mario Paint Composer is probably my favorite one I've seen, though it has been a while since I looked at a bunch of these in earnest. I appreciated this one since it used the base sounds, rather than modifying the sounds in an external editor (which is basically just making your own synth version at that point).

Honorable Mention: Paranoid Android - Radiohead (forgot how amazing this one was)

And if we're talking game related...This Zelda Medley is my favorite, this dude obviously put a ridiculous amount of time to both his medleys on here (the other being the Evolution of Video games one) and is clearly musically-oriented outside just this program. This one made it to my VGM playlist.

Edit: And since this is a FF forum...one of my other favorite MPC choices: FF1 Game Over Music
