Bowser’s sadness is recorded in the piano chords
Three days ago, YouTube musician Charles Cornell posted a video titled “Peaches by Jack Black is unironically really good‘ where he broke down as Black brought his comedic skills and penchant for singing to Nintendo’s fire-breathing Koopa King’s Song. For music nerds, Cornell revealed that “Peaches” is in the key of D flat minor, a key most commonly used in popular sad love ballads such as Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”, Britney Spears’ “Oops!…I Did It Again” and The Beatles’ “All My Loving”.

My money’s on Black simply playing Japan’s “royal road‘ chord progression in its rough melody. Royal Road Progression is a typical chord progression found in modern J-pop songs like Ikimonogakaris Naruto theme song”Hotaru no Hikari‘ and Shoko Nakagawa Gurren Lagann theme song”Sorairo days.” It’s even used in Koji Kondo’s Super Mario 64 song”Lullaby of the Piranha Plant‘ which is a more thematically appropriate musical reference, considering Bowser suggested Peach with a bouquet of piranha plants in the film.
Whether “Peaches” is anything more than a simple ditty about unrequited love is unclear, but one thing is for sure, this jingle will get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
