The Legend of Zelda has been in our lives for thirty years. Yup, 30 years. The game was release in 1986 and since that time it’s a part of our entertainment systems, lives on the web, and even in our musical worlds. How so? Tell me that the them isn’t one of the most legendary themes in video game history and I’ll tell you that you’re lying. I decided to scour the internet searching for the coolest, most bizarre covers of it I could find.
Some are just really talented musicians and some are utilizing pieces of technology ranging from the Russian-born oscillating theremin to synthetic tunes of Mario Paint to the iPhone. Yup, the iPhone.
Enjoy, and send me some links for all those I undoubtedly missed.
