That would be the cover of Bad Apple by thehackercat. 8) Heard a different cover and had a hard time figuring out why it sounded so familiar... It was crazy to me because that track is probably the most nostalgic one for me from the Mirror Menace soundtrack, and it was kind of tied to the place I was when we first played it.

Something I've really wanted to do for a few years is to create a YouTube channel to archive every song from every mod, and clearly credit the authors and song names and sources, a la ReclusiveLemming. Sometimes the music authors aren't even visibly credited in the mods! This is an injustice and it must be fixed! I thought this might finally be the year I get started on that but nope.
Now that I didn't know. When Ceilick sent me the MIDI file, it was under the title BOTB, not Bad Apple, so at the time I thought it was an original composition. I guess that explains why I always thought that track had an Asian sound to it.

It would be cool to have a YouTube channel to serve as an archive for all the music used in these mods. The music is something I've always been fascinated about in these mods, and Mirror Menace was a good example of a soundtrack that had a mystique to it due to all the tracks included from outside sources, which gave it a very unique sound. It's always nice when modders take the extra step to include a list of the track titles complete with the composer of each track and the stages they're included in. That's an awesome idea proYorp! I look forward to seeing it one day!
Also included in the descriptions will be notes on the original songs they are covering when applicable. 8) And maybe even unrelated songs that sound similar, because there's been a few times that I heard a song and it sounded so much like some other song I couldn't remember the name of and it bugged me forever. And whatever other relevant trivia.

I do like listening to the mod music myself, which is kind of my original motivation for this project. I captured a bunch of .wavs with DOSBox's recorder and trimmed them to loop nicely but then I didn't have them when I used any other computers and it's a huge chunk of data to copy. Thanks for the support!
