Here’s my new cover of Dire, Dire Docks from Super Mario 64 with vocals, piano, and percussion! :)
Headphones are recommend for listening, or good speakers.
This and all of my covers are done by ear, I have no sheets.

Special thank you to my supporters on patreon for supporting this video! :)

This song first plays in the level Jolly Roger Bay, and then the level Dire Dire Docks later on. My best guess is that they chose DDD as the official title on the soundtrack because of the nice alliteration, and maybe because it goes well with some of the other song titles in the OST. :)

I feel such a connection to SM64; this game/soundtrack it is a meaningful part of my life. When I was just recording this on piano, I was getting feeling-flashbacks to the hours I spent pre-youtube, learning this song and trying to get it down. I would record video of myself trying to get it all in one take, and it was part of why I do what I do now. DDD was the first song I ever played in front of my friend, who encouraged me to keep going. And Dire Dire Docks was one of my first videos I posted here, too way back in the day! I had no idea what I was doing relative to now, but I was just so inspired by this song. I remember feeling like this is what I really want to do, and I still feel that way. When I play SM64, I get such a happy and nostalgic feeling (I just started a new file last week too)!
I had to relearn some of the piano from what I play by memory, and that’s because back then, I didn’t learn songs as closely, I used to just get the gist of them. So, it took some time to break old habits! I did play it my “old way” a couple times within this cover though! :)
I am grateful to Koji Kondo for giving us this song, and so many other iconic songs that we love. I’m also grateful to you for listening - thank you!

P.S: I started streaming on twitch! I’ve been playing games and hanging out there. You can hang at my streams at https://www.twitch.tv/michelleheafy/
Talk to you soon. :D
