Super Mario Bros. Ragtime Medley from Postmodern Jukebox's Scott Bradlee

When Scott Bradlee isn't spending time making fantastic covers under the Postmodern Jukebox brand, he's busy putting together Super Mario medleys for his personal YouTube channel.

Truth be told, I've been hearing Scott play this stuff for years. Scott and I actually went to the same high school, and were in the same grade! We had some mutual friends and hung out quite a number of times, and he was always performing all sorts of Super Mario medleys like this. Glad to see his love of music, classic stylings, popular songs, and even gaming has taken him to such great heights!
