"And my blue friend is all 'HEY! Listen!'. . ."

We’ve certainly heard a great many covers of pieces of music from the Zelda series, but it isn’t every day you hear a brand new song not based on any pre-existing melody, but merely inspired by the game.

In this rare instance, ย Baltimore student Mike Perrie (who goes by the moniker “somethinglikemusic” on YouTube) posted a song entitled “PAUSE.” which he wrote about his favorite game:ย Ocarina of Time.

Straddling the line between humorous and earnest, the song good natured-ly ribs the game for its bits of illogical silliness (the technologically impossible Hookshot) and unabashedly sings the game’s praises.

Listen to and watch the song after the jump!

  • All right, this is a great way to brighten the morning. I just now got up, logged onto ZU, and found this posted. So now I'm beaming. 8D

    • It really brightens your day, doesn't it? :] Looks like my joy-spreading strategy of scheduling something fun and entertaining to be posted on a Saturday morning has been effective so far. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Dude, this almost sounds like it could be the intro theme song to like some kinda Zelda animated sitcom or something. it would need to be shorted some, but this could totally be a theme song!

    • I can imagine that too! Hah, that's quite a concept – a Zelda sitcom, with a laughtrack and everything.

  • linkpwns13

    That is truly epic ^^

  • Hey guys! This is Mike (the guy who wrote the song) aka. Somethinglikemusic

    I'm really so surprised and flattered that you guys love the song! I wrote it because I just felt like…writing a song about being Link…in fact I've always wanted to. And I just…wow. Thanks guys a lot. I hope you guys find my other stuff as cool as this….lol

    So again. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • No, no, thank you. You're a very talented songwriter who came up with awesome lyrics, such as "rolling with the Gorons." xD That is a very ingenious phrase, as was the rest of the song. Indeed, why should a boy Link's age take up saving Hyrule? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I'm going to echo Thareous and thank YOU instead! As soon as I saw your video on our Facebook page, I knew that you deserved some recognition for your talent, and I was equally confident that our readers would enjoy it.

      Looks like they are! :]

      • Well thank you so much for putting it up, I was so pleasantly surprised and you nailed my essence in the write up exactly! So thanks again!

  • I love it!
