Featured video: 2 Years of Wii Music
Over the last two years, I've uploaded quite a few different versions of songs in Wii Music. Some are close to the original versions, and others have been changed to the point that they're unrecognizable. To mark the two year anniversary of the release of Wii Music in North America, I went through my video collection and put together this sequence of excerpts from each of the 50 songs in Wii Music.
