A Kirby song cover just won a Grammy

Kirby is officially a Grammy Award winner – well, at least in spirit. The pink, spherical creature helped earn Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman a Grammy for Best Arrangement, Instrumental or Acapella for their interpretation Meta Knight’s Revenge from the 1996 classic Kirby Superstar. The cover art was originally performed by the aptly named 8-Bit Big Band, a 30- to 65-piece orchestra that specializes in putting their own spin on video game music.

In the past that 8-bit big band has performed Zelda’s Lullaby of the Ocarina of Time, Fourside from earthbound, Big blue from F zero, and much more. You can listen to the performance of the reinterpretation group Meta Knight’s Revenge in the embed above – it’s a really jazzy version of that original trackand dare I say sounds even better than Nintendo’s remake included in it Super Smash Bros.

Video game music doesn’t get nominated for a Grammy very often, but this win comes especially timely considering that recent release of Kirby and the forgotten land. 2011 the song Baba Yetu from Civilization IV won a Grammy after re-release in a separate album. trip was nominated for Best Score Soundtrack for visual media in 2012, but ended to lose The girl with the dragon tattoo.
