Eating at EarthBound Shops #3
A little while back, SmaMan told me he was doing a segment on his weekly public radio show about Keiichi Suzuki and Hirokazu Tanaka, the musicians behind MOTHER 1 and MOTHER 2. The recording is now up on the web for all to hear, so check it out here! The EarthBound stuff starts around 8:40 in. ...Read More »
A little while back I posted about a new CD coming out that features a lot of Keiichi Suzuki’s movie and game music. This CD includes some MOTHER series music too, including a new version of Smiles & Tears. If you don’t remember what Smiles & Tears is, it’s the song that plays at the end of EarthBound, during the staff credits. Shigesato Itoi actually wrote lyrics for t...Read More »
Shigesato Itoi recently posted on his Twitter account something about the MOTHER series, and KingDarian quickly sent news about it my way. Here’s what Itoi said, translated into English: Here’s something for the MOTHER folks out there. The “Smiles and Tears” track on the “Keiichi Suzuki:Music for Films and Games/Original Soundtracks” album is sung using lyrics ...Read More »

The shop primarily sells jazz music, and you can check it out here. It’s pretty nice, and if you loo...Read More »
A little while ago was the birthday of Keiichi Suzuki, one of the main musicians for EarthBound and EarthBound Zero, so a bunch of us overseas fans went to his sites and wished him a happy birthday. Possibly as a result of this, he recently put up a version of Eight Melodies from his old “Lost Suzuki Tapes” album, which you can hear on his MySpace here: Keiichi Suzuki’s MySpace I...Read More »
The other day, Keiichi Suzuki stopped by Itoi’s office because he wanted Itoi to help promote his latest upcoming album. While they ate at a restaurant, he mentioned that he had his 58th birthday the other day, so the restaurant people made a small birthday cake to celebrate. For those not in the know, Keiichi Suzuki was one of the two main musicians who worked on MOTHER 1 and MOTHER 2 / Ear...Read More »
