By now we've all played, re-played, and generally gushed over Pixel's freeware platformer Cave Story
. The game is so good, we've even fallen in love with the soundtrack. But did you know one of those tunes is a remixed polka song? Yes, polka. And we're not talking Weird Al-style Polkamon
The music that accompanies the Finnish dance Letkajenkka
(often referred to as Jenkka) bears a striking resemblance to Jenka's theme
(track number 16) from Cave Story
. And by "striking resemblance" we mean it's the exact same song morphed into a chiptune-style piece. Kinda makes us wonder if, deep down, some twisted part of our being actually enjoys polka.
