Read This First!

This was my biggest success when I made songs on Mario paint. I'm so glad you guys enjoyed this video, and I'm very appreciative of the success it has had. I can no longer make videos of Mario Paint, or anything else, due to having too many outside responsibilities. This ride has been fun, thank you so much for your support. The Mario Paint community and uploads have been pretty dead for a while, and while a comeback might tempt me to come back, I sincerely don't think this will happen, meaning I'm afraid I probably won't be uploading again.

About the video: Tempo used was 5001 in the program, which ends up being around 144 in 4/4 time.
-The actual song by Europe is around 116-118 bpm (roughly).
- I made it this much faster because the sound samples (the sounds the instrument symbols make) could not hold for 4 full beats had I gone any slower. This wouldn't have worked for the flower, face, cats, and shy guys that I used for the rock organ / synthesizer chords in the background.

This will not sound like Vanilla Mario Paint. I used a customized soundfont, in which I took sound samples (the actual instruments behind the symbols) from other sources and customized them for use in Mario Paint. I Frankenstein'd together instruments from soundfonts created by SatoshiLyish, Cat333Pokemon, and others. Here is a link to a copy of the soundfont, in case you were curious or want to try it out. http://www.mediafire.com/?ii2yoormmmm

I made this video with about 23 hours of work over a period of about 3 weeks.
