Video Game Reminiscent

I've had Vampire Weekend's "Horchata"---off their most recent album, Contra---stuck in my head since yesterday.  After verse 1, however, I completely lose the tune to the subconscious takeover of Super Mario 3's Underground theme.  Listen to "Horchata," and at 0:21 you'll see why.  Now I'm working in Garageband to produce a mashup.  Having never used the program before, it's taking a lot longer than I'd like, but I'll get through it.  I'm always mashing up songs in my head, or with my roomie (we have completely different repertoires, so when one of us starts singing a tune, the other will join in with a similar but completely different song).  I hope to produce a great number of mashups for FoP posting in the future, so I figure this is a good time to start.

There's another song that takes me back to my days of Super Nintendo funtimes, and that's Omarion's "Ice Box."  Have a quick listen to the intro:

Sound familiar?  Try this on for size (it gets really obvious at 0:59):

Yes, that's Donkey Kong Country's Underwater theme, "Aquatic Ambience," by David Wise & Robin Beanland.

Please post comments if you have more!
