A cool website that works like Google or Bing (that is, a music search engine). I tried looking for the the original Super Mario Bros. theme, but I couldn't find it. However, some of these other songs are really good, including the first result (which is the Super Mario Bros. underwater theme on what seems to be an acoustic guitar). A lot of them also seem to be related to the Super Mario Bros. Super Show!.
