Super Morrissey Bros.


If you've ever listened to The Smiths, and we'll just assume you have, then you know that Morrissey doesn't sound like the cheeriest of fellows. In fact, we'd probably go so far as to say he sounds a little down. And as much as we like the band, after their billionth play on the ShortList stereo we were in need of a change.

Luckily, help has come in the form of re-mixer extraordinaire Lazyitis , who has created the The Smiths' This Charming Man using the theme tune from Super Mario Bros, including added sounds effects.

Granted, the combination of The Smiths and Super Mario Bros. doesn't seem like a match made in heaven, but let us assure you it is. Take a listen to the track below.

And if you need a refresher on the non-8bit This Charming Man here you go:
