I've never been that big of a Super Mario Brothers fan, but when the commercial for the Game Boy Advance title. Super Mario Advance 4 was released, I was all over it. Jumping kids, warp tunnels, and of course the smooth bossanova sounds of Mayumi Kojima's Hatsukoi.
I remember, right after this commercial aired, tons of people approaching me to find out the title of the track. One of her more memorable releases. Kojima's music always had some wily, fun aspects to it. You may also remember her from the theme song to Ghost Hound. Make sure to hit the jump for the full, non commercial version of the song.
