Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 30th, 2012 | Audio Stuff, EarthBound

I can’t remember if I’ve posted about this before or not, but many years ago good friend Kyo caught a clip of the MOTHER/EarthBound drugstore song being used on a Japanese TV show. Or at least something that sounds like it:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

The clip is talking about someone who learned about farming or something during college and has used that knowledge of self-sufficiency for their current lifestyle.

7 Comments to Drugstore Song on Japanese TV

Reminds me of this from TVTropes: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuspiciouslySimilarSong

That article is much less interesting than when I last read it, however.

Since Humouresque of a Little Dog is based on the some old song from Texas, it’s probably that.

linkdude20002001 is right. The EarthBound song is based on an American folk song. The show is probably using the original folk song, not the EarthBound rendition.

Yeah, I don’t see what’s the point of bringing this up at EBC when it’s using the original piece.

This sounds more like Dallas Rag than the drugstore song. They’re nearly identical songs, but not quite.

The Drugstore song is the Beatle’s “when I’m 64.”
