Lately we’ve noticed that many of you are Nintendo Game Boy fans. You’ve been incorporating references to the Game Boy, and even its sounds, into your submissions. See a few highlights below.
1. Tiny Desk Contest Entrant: Curious Quail (Mike Shirley-Donnelly, Erin Keely, Abe Myers, Joey Guthrie and Alan Chen)
City: San Jose, Calif.
Original Song: “Reconstruction” (above)
Kudos for making use of office supplies! We love the pencil-drumming. Viewers, see if you can spot the Lite-Brite.
2. Tiny Desk Contest Entrant: Danimal Cannon (Daniel Behrens)
City: Buffalo, N.Y.
Original Song: “Axis”
“I’d like to introduce to you to my band. Right here we have Mr. Game Boy, Mr. Flashcard.” Watch as Behrens shreds his electric guitar to the sounds of Game Boy.
3. Tiny Desk Entrant: Jonathan Mann
City: Jersey City, N.J.
This one made us smile, especially the refrain "I’m Mario in my dreams tonight.”
Every week we’ll share some of the Tiny Desk Concert Contest entries that stood out to us. To be clear: if your video doesn’t appear here, don’t panic — your entry is still eligible to win (as long as it follows these rules)!
