Sounds like it will keep you ahead of the game. I listened to this and in 2 minutes, I cleaned my entire house! lol

Joking aside, it typifies some of the older stand-up hardware games I used to play. It's definitely a happy track. I don't know why Super mario comes to mind. But then again, I'm not familiar with more of the contemporary games.
Clean track and a decent mix. I guess because some of the sounds are retro, (60's Transister Organ etc) it reminds me of older games. Good job for the application though.

Thanks a lot! Well, it's not unusual you're thinking about older game music, since they were all about a catchy melody (except a few). I always aim for a good melody.

Thanks man! :D Love Mario Kart and I can hear what you mean, it has its likeness to some music in Mario Kart 64. Didn't think about it at the time, though.

Great sound quality. Do you play the guitar? I like the effect on it. You used some effects with great success because it all works together rather well. Michael.
