Most Legend of Zelda fans will smile when they hear the first few notes of Kakariko Village's musical theme.
At once tranquil and frontiersy, it's easy to picture the laid-back lifestyle of the Kakarikans (?) as they go about their days toiling at the windmill, fixing their roofs, and counting their un-smashed pots.
Kakariko Village, then, ranks as one of the most popular Zelda themes of all time - and it's no surprise that it's been covered and remixed many time over. But YouTube cover artist Supershigi might just win the non-existent award for "Best Vocal and Piano Cover of Kakariko Village" with her arrangement.
Take a few minutes out of your day to let this one sink in, it's really quite pretty.
Supershigi (real name, Laura Shigihara) has a bunch of other great covers up on her YouTube channel including a great vocal arrangement of Fi's Theme and an equally beautiful cover of Ballad of the Goddess. Outside of Zelda covers, she's put together a great vocal arrangement of Schala's Theme from Chrono Trigger which is well worth a listen.
Finally, as an added bonus for the Plants vs. Zombies fans out there, she has a ton of piano covers of PvZ music which all sound way more beautiful than you'd think possible.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to grab a nice tall glass of lemonade, put Kakariko Village on loop for a couple of hours, and call it a day.
