YouGov does important Mario based research

Independent research carried out across Europe by YouGov has discovered that Mario is the ‘best-loved videogame character of all time.’ He’s at least one of the most flaunted about anyway.

This groundbreaking exploration of discovery also revealed that Mario’s rather pleasing jingles are amongst the most well known in games, with the majority of Europeans surveyed instantly recognising them.

The Mario soundtrack was created by composer Koji Kondo for the original Super Mario Bros in 1985 who has also composed music for the Zelda and Starfox series, as well as a few others.

Mr Kondo has said to take a lot of his musical inspiration from Latin and jazz rock, which is perhaps a little challenging to pick up amongst the chirps and chimes of the original soundtrack.
