Default Here's an odd album from Myanmar. Not sure if it's on the list

I found this while googling something completely unrelated:

http://news.biglobe.ne.jp/trend/0217...328990779.html

The album is called "Mario" and it's from Myanmar. I didn't see the name of the artist mentioned anywhere in this article, but I also didn't see a listing on the database.

It looks like she's singing to the tune of old Mario songs.

There's no Nintendo logo on it (according to the author), so it's not licensed.

It's just a pop album. That site has more than samples, it has the full songs. I listened to it all and there's no relation to Mario besides the artwork and the first song having the name in the chorus, some sounds intended to invoke the sound effect when you collect a coin (though it's not a perfect imitation), and maybe the lyrics say something about the game for all I know. There are no Mario tunes or any other game music though.

I'm not really into the type of music on the album, but it's far from the most aurally offensive of that style that I've ever heard. Maybe people who like modern pop music would really like it. There are some decent melodies.
