10 Most Unique Ways to Perform 'Legend of Zelda' Songs

Zelda 25th.jpg
Twenty-five years ago, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda on the Famicom in Japan. Sporting top-of-the-line graphics (at the time), open-ended game play, and a vast world full of secrets, many old-school gamers still consider Zelda to be one of the greatest games of all time.

One of the most memorable components of the Zelda franchise is its memorable music. Everything from the triumphant over-world theme song to the satisfying "da duh duh duuuuuh" fanfare can easily be recognized by gamers and non-gamers alike. The game was composed by the legendary Koji Kondo, who was also the same mastermind behind the Super Mario Bros theme song. You've probably heard people play the Legend of Zelda theme song about a bazillion times with the guitar and piano on YouTube already. However, how often can you hear it performed by a freaking carrot?

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, the following is a compilation of the strange, unique ways people have performed its theme song (in no particular order).

1. A Capella With Funny Hats

Diwa de Leon: He's a composer, an arranger, a musician, and a lover of silly hats. He's also a video-game fan, and his YouTube page is loaded with a capella renditions of popular game music.

2. An Ocarina Carved Out of a Carrot

Zelda nerds love the ocarina. However, YouTube celebrity heita3 takes his Zelda love to a new level by making his own ocarinas . . . out of vegetables. That's right, the man hollows out vegetables of all sorts and somehow turns them into something that can play a song as beautiful as "The Song of Time" from Ocarina of Time.

3. Hand Farts

He's back! Hand fart-master Gerry Phillips shows his love for the Zelda series by doing what he does best. The man has been hand farting for more than 38 years, and he's so hardcore that he's using a distortion pedal on his hand farts.

4. A Cockatiel

Stuck in the Lost Woods? The secret is to follow the music, like the tune this cockatiel is singing.

5. Cell Phone

We've all played "Mary Had a Little Lamb" at one point in our lives using our cell phone's keypad. But how many of you can play the Zelda over-world music? The guy in the video above can, and the comments tell him to "go kill yourself," "that was terrible" and "your a nasty bitch go fuck yourself and suck on your moms tits you hobo dicksucker." Isn't the Internet a great place to share your talent?
