Does anyone else think this Nintendo 3DS music sounds familiar?

Come on. It's pretty much the same bloody song

OK. This is pretty obscure, but I'm going to throw it out there anyway as it's been stuck in my head for a few days. If you have a 3DS you will undoubtedly have been charmed by the StreetPass Mii Plaza music. It's very catchy. But from the first moment it tinkled its way into my ears, it sounded very familiar. After much memory digging, I found the tune that it reminded me of. As I said, it’s pretty obscure, but please listen and compare and try and tell me the two don't sound pretty bloody similar.

You don't need to listen to the whole songs, just the first 20 seconds of both will do.

Now check out Eumir Deodato's version of Marcos Valle's 'Summer Samba':

You hear it? You must hear it. They're practically the same song. I found this to be amazing and just wanted to share. And even if you think I'm talking complete balls, well, at least you've listened to Summer Samba. And that means your day has been enriched by 100%.

That is all.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
