A cover of a Kirby song just won a Grammy

Published on

Kirby is officially a Grammy Award winner — well, at least in spirit. The pink, bulbous creature helped Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman earn a Grammy for best arrangement, instrumental or acapella for their take on Meta Knight’s Revenge from the 1996 classic Kirby Superstar† The arrangement was performed by the aptly named 8-Bit Big Band, a 30- to 65-member orchestra that specializes in putting their own spin on video game music.

In the past, the 8-Bit Big Band has performed Zelda’s lullaby of the Ocarina of Time, Fourside from earthboundBig Blue from F-Zero, and much more. You can listen to the performance of the redesigned group Meta Knight’s Revenge in the inclusion above – it’s a real jazzy take on the original song, and dare I say it sounds even better than Nintendo’s remake included in Super Smash Bros

Video game music isn’t often nominated for a Grammy, but this win is especially timely given the recent release of Kirby and the Forgotten Land† In 2011, the song Baba Yetu from Civilization IV won a Grammy after being re-released in a separate album. trip was nominated for Best Visual Media Soundtrack in 2012, but ultimately lost to The girl with the dragon tattoo
