Well this is nifty (via Digg) to a video game nerd like me. One of Nintendo’s composers has inserted a small tune into nearly all the games he’s participated in. I remember it distinctly from Mario Paint (the easiest and earliest place to find it), although I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve heard it elsewhere. Probably Animal Crossing. Basically at someplace in the game, you sit and wait for a long time, and a simple yet memorable tune plays. The hunt is on to find it in other games.
