Smooth McGroove Performs Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s House Theme

By Ishaan . June 3, 2014 . 3:15pm

Smooth McGroove, known for performing a-cappella arrangements of famous videogame music, has shared his latest creation—the House Theme from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.



Of course, the House Theme has been used in more than just that game. It was also present in Majora’s Mask, The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.

    …I love Smooth McGroove just as much as the next guy, but… since when is a video of his really worthy of gaming ‘news’? He makes a-capella vids of video games all the time! Didn’t see no announcement on Siliconera when he did the same thing for his cover of Pheonix Wright’s Corner, did we?

  • Hey! This guy is awesome! Unfortunately, this isn’t news worthy, but it’s still awesome.

    • ZnTxn

      Still, it’s A LOT better than that Leet Street Boys video from some time back >_>

      Yes, I remember that article!

      • Tell the Siliconera staff. They can make an article out of it.

        • chibidw

          Sent them an e-mail yesterday. No response.

    lol, I love how he always just randomly starts paying with his cat in at least one or two panels in each of his videos.

    • That’s what I tell many people to do when watching those vids.

      Search for Kuroneko-sama.

  • Shadowman

    This make me want to play WW HD and I just started it two days ago but I have till E3 pass till I beat it

  • ZEROthefirst

    As good as this is it isn’t “news” worthy, especially when it’s just the Zelda house theme.

  • Kornelious

    Haha, I love this guy! :D

  • That awkward moment when my videos aren’t news-worthy ;_;

  • Nanaki

    No mention of Charl in the article?

  • Heisst

    These types of news are Kotaku-tier.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Ishaan, it’s obvious that banjos are the new thing now :/

  • Aoshi00

    I love McGroove, have been listening to his stuff for a while now, pure genius.. looks more like a true gaming Jesus to me lol, and his cute cat.. I could listen to his Chrono Trigger and Sonic pieces forever..

    I guess this means he’s a smooth mcgroove fan

  • Qunton C.

    And Siliconera has officially jumped the shark. Its been fun.

  • Wildrose

    Smooth Mcgroove’s an awesome dude and I love his videos but there’s plenty of people out there making their own music who get no recognition at all. There’s a big difference between video game “news” and video game “culture”. You may as well make articles for every single video he puts out. Didn’t mean to sound arrogant but that’s just how I feel when I see stuff like this pop up in SE.

    Not that I wanna give you guys crap, but I must say that I was a little taken aback by this. It just seems very filler-post ala Kotaku and Siliconera is where I go to avoid that sort of thing. So very few good gaming news websites left. I can appreciate more lighthearted articles, I just hope it doesn’t become a thing.

  • alangato

    Damn, I like this guy’s work, but really? Why did you do that siliconera?

    • Namuro

      Well, it has to do with gaming, right? :D

      • alangato

        I know, but is this news-worthy? It is not even his best arranged music ahahah

        • Namuro

          I say, anything is better than nothing. It’s a slow day. LOL

  • Smooth’s “One who Bares Fangs at God” video was the one that convinced me he was more than just a gimmick artist.

    • Mastery

      For me it was his FF7 battle theme. The whistling…

  • s07195

    I see all these comments about this not being news worthy, but isn’t Siliconera a gaming ‘blog’ in the first place? I enjoy these types of news once in a while, better than a slow day where I check every hour to see the same articles. *hint hint* XD

    Have to admit that this was an interesting post. Not so much for the content (though I am always one for listening to some Smooth McGroove as he is the singer we deserve AND get), but mostly for the reaction.

    As others have stated, this isn’t exactly big news-worthy.

    Siliconera have posted silly little nonsense things in the past, usually during slow news days.
    There seems to be a very real fear here that Siliconera will lower themselves to “Kotaku-levels” by including snippets like these.
    And I find that interesting, not because I think it’s true- this is ONE little non-news item on a slow day, it won’t be the end of Siliconera. But the fear it instills in people, what does it say? Does it say something of the state of video game journalism, and how much people are afraid that any serious site will in the end devolve into click-bait nonsense? Does it say something about the thin skin of Internet commenters, fearing the slightest change from what they’ve come to expect is a herald of doom? Or does it say something about both? Interesting things are said, either way…
