So, I have a confession to make. I’ve been playing a lot of Mario Kart 8 this past weekend. I really like how they included tracks from previous iterations of the game, like Music Park. The only thing is, the Music Park track never felt “right” – even in the fantastical fictional world of Mario – it always felt wrong to be driving across this music inspired course. Skidding around the keyboard turns, jumping across the drum-shaped obstacle like a trampoline… it’s all the things I was told never to do to an instrument. Not that my band directors warned me not to go-kart across marimbas, but every musician knows that instruments should be treated with respect. That’s why this track weirds me out whenever it comes up. Maybe that’s just me?
