Mii Channel Wii

Remixes/covers of songs are a dime a dozen, especially if a particular piece of music is common. That said, one of Nintendo’s most iconic pieces of music is the Mii Channel theme, one of the most-used channels that was built into the Nintendo Wii. This piece of music has been heard by well over 100 million people, and that’s just considering the amount of Wii’s that were sold. As a result, it’s been remixed quite a bunch since 2006. But, sometimes you’ll just hear an absolute banger and the only reaction is to share it. That’s what’s happened with Alex Moukala’s recent cover of the hit menu music. Have a listen and jam out for yourself:

Alex Moukala is a music producer and composer, and he regularly creates covers of music from video game franchises. Not simply content with his own spin on the song, Alex invited other musically-talented folks to go ahead and add onto it. This ended up in a stream of additional covers on top of the Alex Moukala Mii Channel theme. Here are a few highlights:

@FamilyJules joined the party with a kickin’ guitar solo on top of Alex’s cover:

Making it a triple threat, @insanerainmusic added onto FamilyJule’s solo with a piano solo:

How about a quartet? Dom Palombi decided to drop a drum session in addition to @insanerainmusic and @FamilyJule’s combination:

As if four artists weren’t good enough, Alex must’ve really gotten his wish when Jeff Ball decided to tune his way into the mix by throwing in a…string arrangement? Not expected, but it turns out to be nothing short of infectious!

Going back to the duets, here’s a funky synth mix to rock out with from Ryan Lafford:

As Alex put it, @RichaadEB totally shreds out with his guitar solo:

 

It’s a shame that all of these clips of the Alex Moukala Mii Channel theme are just over 30 seconds long. It would be awesome if the mixes were at least two minutes long. Nevertheless, every artist did an amazing job putting their own spin on Alex’s cover—which was already really smooth on its own.

Nintendo doesn’t seem to bothered by this little impromptu jam session either, as these videos have garnered a lot of views with no intervention from the company. Hopefully, it’ll remain that way.
