Having some fun with an ancient vintage synth. All of these songs are played in their entirety in solo piano versions elsewhere on this channel.

  1. Oh man makes me want to hear some NBA Jam music with all these sweet sounds!

  2. This got posted to Reddit, and now you have a sub. Excelent work my man

  3. Wow that zelda's theme earned a sub alone! Nice work man 🙂

  4. To me it sounds like the end of Earthbound free a little inspiration from Van Halen 1984 album deep cut I'll Wait.

  5. This is absolutely amazing. i never once considered getting married, but i know what im banging when i do

  6. I haven't finished yet but please have some chronotrigger

    It did not but it was amazing. Corridors of time or any donkey kong country next time please 🙂

  7. It still amazes me that people can play music from memory. I can't hear any music in my head at all. When I took piano lessons as a kid I only remembered tunes as mechanical key sequences, not by sound. Never learned to play well..

  8. Good shit for blowing this up reddit 👍

  9. You're amazing dude, Zelda's lullaby gave me goosebumps

  10. Buckaroo Bonzai and the Fifth Dimension. Favorite.

  11. Man, I feel like I'm in Smash bros

  12. Holy wow. That moment when you started playing Zelda's Lullaby on two pianos with different sounds. It looked so impressive, and it sounded… so beautiful. Nicely done. That's a like from me.

  13. My cat didn’t like the high note on the Zelda one XD

  14. Wow!! I am a day late and 72 thousand people beat me to it!!! I love this sound on that synth!!! I have got to go get ready for my live but I had to check this out!! What is it your playing at 1:40? So beautiful!!!

  15. Did the one starting at 0:45 (Earthbound/Mother 2, according to a previous comment) just straight up steal "I'll Wait" by Van Halen? Sound to me like they might have done just that.

  16. Was NOT expecting Big Blue at the beginning! Your playing is so elegant. Would you consider doing a full cover of Big Blue on synth? It would be amazing <3

  17. 0:260:33 proved that whatever settings you had that on, would be perfect for doing old Castlevania songs on.

  18. This is awesome. You gotta do chemical plant zone next

  19. BearKeys you've done it again! This is so incredible! …. Can I make a ringtone out of some of these?

  20. Masterful! I don't recognize the games except for Sonic but I love it , and the JP6 of course. Wow Bear, it seems you have reached a huge amount of views and so many subs as well, I am SO happy for you, having known you from the earliest days when it was practically me and Siel who were watching your videos . Great talent eventually gets noticed.

  21. Brought a smile to my face, as always!

    I have a request for a song I just discovered was even in Smash Ultimate, if you’re up for it: the Mappy Medley. I’d love to hear your take on that classic theme, especially since it doesn’t get covered that often. Only if you feel inspired to, of course. 🙂

  22. This is the coolest thing ever since 16 bit consoles came out!

  23. I see 9 'dislikes' and 2,200 'likes'. 9 is 0.41% of 2.2k. In 2015, 0.48% of the population was blind. With severe visual impairment accounting for 2.9%. Statistically speaking, with a sample size of 2.2k, I think it's VERY safe to say the dislikes in this video were likely mistakes.

  24. That transition from Zelda to Sonic is like finishing Ocarina of Time with tears in your eyes, up until your little brother enters the room loudly, falling on the floor in the process, claiming it's HIS TURN ON THE XBOX (or in this case N64)

  25. Big Blue sounds so cool through the synth, but I do love Earthbound's warmth in tonal quality. It's all awesome great job!! 🎹🤙🎶
