Magical Tree BGM: O Vreneli

In the 1980s it was quite common to use existing (royalty free) songs as background music. In our MSX Wiki, there already is an extensive but incomplete list of musical influences in MSX Games.

Added to this list is a nice find from KdL: the source of the music in Magical Tree is a Swiss folk song called O Vreneli, which is also available in a Japanese version or two. Translated lyrics of the original Swiss song are available here, but of course there's also an English version. Sing along, people!

Use Google. You'll find references to the song on some Japanese pages. Didn't know it before either, I discovered this myself during research for my book. But alas, it's no new information.

Of course. It's been known since 1984 to many people.
What are you trying to point out? IMO It's worth a trivial newspost.

@wimpie3: just because it's no news to you doesn't mean it's no news to anyone. It's kind of a golden rule on MRC: if it's new to one of our editors, it's probably new to many visitors as well. So yes, we occasionally report about 'old' news about an old computer. And it might inspire some visitors to further complete the list on our wiki.

Looking forward to you book by the way, what's the current status of it?

Currently over 500 pages but still a lot of work to be done. It takes an incredible amount of time to replay all the games... I hope to finish one part by the end of August.

By the way, where does the picture in this article come from? It's fitting already, but it's not from Magical Tree Wink

I already suspected it was from Hetalia. Is that worthwhile to watch, by the way? I only know it from passing.
I can hardly imagine it's any more spot-on, or even funnier than Polandball.

@John: yeah, that's it Wink It only seems to miss the last note though (too bad Wink) Makes me wonder, could well be this is purely improvised, or could it be based on something else? (AFAIK it's not in the original Musicology tune anyway.)
