It's sort of amazing that it took this long for some clever person to mash up the Smiths and Super Mario Bros. as Super Morrissey Bros., but it was certainly worth the wait. This Chiptune cover of the Smiths' classic "This Charming Man" is rendered in the style of the original Super Mario Bros. soundtrack and includes sound effects from the original game. It's simple, perfect and remarkably true to the spirit of the song. Listen below!

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
