Rhythm Heaven Remix

VIDEO: Matching modern songs to Nintendo’s beat tapper

Okay, this totally restores our indie cred, right? Right?

“Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake
Syncs with: Crop Stomp

Awesome song, fits perfectly with the level. Not only that, but we’ve discovered it also syncs up with Remix 2, Freeze Frame and Splashdown quite nicely as well.

“Enter Sandman” by Metallica
Syncs with: Glee Club

This one gets top honors in our list because it is the only tune that actually sounds like its game counterpart. Those cute little imps sing just like James Hetfield and look about as manly, too.

There’s our list: If you feel the urge to see if your favorite tune syncs up with a Rhythm Heaven arrangement, just find a BPM counter online and test ‘em out to see if you can get a match. If you find a gem, let us know about it in the comments!
